Not Your Typical Eye Doctors

Dr. Landrio & Associates provides so much more than typical eye exams. Each of our optometrists are fully licensed in diagnosing and treating a number of conditions and diseases of the eye, such as keratoconus, eye disease, injury and trauma, or various ocular limitations. 

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease where the cornea thins out and eventually bulges like a cone. When this happens, it brings light rays out of focus, causing your vision to be blurry and distorted. This makes daily tasks like driving or reading incredibly difficult. Keratoconus treatment depends on your symptoms, but mild cases can be corrected with eyeglasses. Later, you may need to wear hard, custom contact lenses to help keep vision in proper focus.

The Eye Care Services and Selections You're Looking For

We believe our services and technology are second-to-none. We offer non-invasive imaging tests such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Retinal Imaging, Optos, Topography, Visual Fields, and more.

Our selection of frames for eyeglasses are extensive, with over 300 frames to select from. In addition, we offer sports goggles, pediatric glasses, sunglasses, and designer frames. We also offer contact lenses of all types including options for those hard to fit patients, those who want bifocal, colored, or daily disposable contacts.

We also offer pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing LASIK eye surgery or other surgical procedures.

If you have child who needs vision correction or eye care services, then look no further, we offer pediatric eye care for your little ones. We are fully equipped with providing all of your child’s eye care needs in the comfort of our office.

  • "Dr. Landrio is probably the nicest, most patient doctor I've met! She really took the time to listen to me and answer all my questions with a thoughtful answer. It wasn't brushed off like how your questions can be at other offices. The wait time was short. There was no pressure to buy glasses at the office but it was offered. She even asked "permission" to send me a yearly reminder for a check-up. I'd gladly come here again."
