Why Eye Health is Essential

Having 20/20 vision doesn’t mean you don’t need an annual eye exam. Eyes are windows into your physical health. During eye exams, your eyes can give away serious health conditions that could otherwise be undetected, like diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure, and even cancer.

Many sight-limiting eye diseases like age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma cause slow but permanent damage without any apparent symptoms. Because eye doctors can see both the inside and outside of your eyes during an exam, they get to look at both your eye health and your overall health.

Helping you enjoy a lifetime of vision is our priority. If you’ve been putting off your annual eye exam, allow us to detect any minor changes to your vision and catch early signs of disease.

Quality Eye Care

Dr. Tarr is board certified in the medical examination, diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems and diseases of the ocular system. Equally important is Dr. Tarr’s philosophy to spend time with each patient, addressing the results of the comprehensive exam and explaining the various treatment options available. He cares for all ages from 6 months to 100 years old.

“I’m a 60yr old Air Force veteran that’s experienced my eye Docs. Dr. Tarr is by far the best! Always a professional!”

“I began as a patient when I worked closer to Dr. Tarr’s office. I now drive 45 minutes and have no desire to change doctors. The visit is worth the drive. Dr. Tarr is always kind and completes a thorough exam before providing me with a diagnosis. Wonderful!”
Amber B.
“Grateful! Dr Tarr worked diligently to get my vision back to normal as possible. I have gone through chemo treatments and it has affected the dryness in my eyes. He has got it where I can see clearly and they are not as dry and don’t feel like sandpaper.”
Shelly B.
“I came to Dr. Tarr four years ago. Even though I had a severe corneal scar, he was able to fit me with contact lenses. Dr. Tarr has been able to do in the last four years what other eye specialists have not been able to do for the last 20 years! I also have very dry eyes, and he has used a special procedure on my tear ducts which has helped the dryness a lot. He has helped me more than any other eye doctor I’ve gone to!”
Bonie H.
“Dear Dr. Tarr & Staff, I just wanted to send you a quick note of ‘Thanks’ for the wonderful experience we had at your office. Everyone was so kind and friendly and very patient with my daughter. She really enjoyed the experience. She even said she wanted to see the eye doctor every week! She usually is not that happy with doctors. Thank you again, to all of you!”
Ann & Natalie G.
“I became a patient of Dr. Tarr as soon as he began his practice. He has always been very professional as well as his staff. I was diagnosed with glaucoma and under Dr. Tarr’s competent care it is fully under control. I appreciate having such a great optometrist that I can trust to care for my needs.”
