About Our Office and Location

We are conveniently located in Monroe, LA, off of Louisville Avenue and Lamy Lane. Our office is easily accessible and offers free parking. Many patients travel from across north Louisiana, south Arkansas, and Mississippi to receive their eye care with our specialists. Despite the large area that we serve, we strive to schedule our patients such that we can provide highly efficient service and personalized care.

Our office has traditional décor, yet our exam rooms are equipped with cutting-edge technology. We offer many treatments in our office, often on the same day as your visit.
