Welcome to the Eye Center of Brookings! Optometric physicians are the principal doctors who provide primary level eyecare to Americans. Our approach is to not only provide you with improved eyesight, but to do so with education about your particular problem. Vision profoundly affects your work, living and health. Vision plays a part in everything we do throughout our lives.
At the Eye Center, we know how important your vision is to you--because next to life itself, nature's most precious gift is sight. The ability of the eye to capture a weightless light beam and convert it into the seeing world is truly remarkable. Your eyes and vision are very complex--so we offer highly trained professionals who have the skill to help you take care of your eyesight. Let the staff at the Eye Center of Brookings take care of your eyesight.
