Most of our patients come from Wayne, Holmes, Tuscarawas and Stark Counties. However, because we work with children with learning related visual problems, we have patients that come from an extended range, including Ashland, Richland, Medina, Knox and Coshocton Counties.
Communities we serve include: Apple Creek, Ashland, Canal Fulton, Canton, Dalton, Dover, Mansfield, Massillon, Medina, Millersburg, New Philadelphia, North Canton, Orrville, Wadsworth and Wooster. If your child is struggling at school, we urge you to schedule a developmental eye exam.
