Dr. Tamami Candi Kimura
20/20 is good vision, but not guaranteed comfortable vision. Vision care catered to making your vision clear and comfortable and keeping it healthy is our mission. Routine eye checks are a part of a healthy lifestyle. Vision is constantly changing from infancy on up. Children require checks to make sure vision is developing properly. School, work, on the computer, at play, all requires different visual demands. Studies are now showing that the blue light from phones, TVs, and computers/tablets may even disrupt our sleep patterns. Make sure your visual potential is always at the maximum comfort level!
