Child covering her eye to take a vision test

Upham’s Eye Care Clinic’s state-of-the-art facility offers a wide range of comprehensive eye care and optical care services for children and adults.  

Upham’s Eye Care Clinic expansion allows us to increase access to care, leverage the latest diagnostic equipment, and provide more efficient, comprehensive exams and treatment for our patients. And, our newly renovated Optical Shop carries more name brand frames and lens.

Our department works closely with Upham’s primary care and other multidisciplinary services to maintain the overall health of our patients, especially those with diabetes, glaucoma, and amblyopia.

We are accepting new patients!
