Our Optometrists in Summerfields & Fossil Creek
Your eyes give you a clear view of the world that surrounds you, and they give our eye doctors a good view of your overall health. Many body diseases and conditions can affect the health of your ocular tissues. Therefore, when our eye doctors in Summerfields and Fossil Creek, TX, perform an eye exam, we are inspecting much more than your vision.
Altig Optical has offices located conveniently in the Fort Worth neighborhoods of Summerfields and Fossil Creek. Both of these eye care clinics are furnished with high-tech diagnostics and cutting-edge optometric equipment to ensure efficient and accurate treatment. Our optometrists will take care of your vision, your eye health and your general well-being with advanced technology, expert skill, and a friendly dose of personalized attention!
We encourage all our patients to visit for routine comprehensive eye exams. Eyes change, and it is important to reevaluate your vision prescription. If you need new eyeglasses or contact lenses, we’ll help you choose the perfect pair! Aging is also associated with the onset of many common eye diseases, and only a detailed eye examination can detect or rule out the signs of a problem.
Professional eye care focuses on many different services, and our Fort Worth eye doctors, in Summerfields and Fossil Creek, each bring unique specialties to our optometry practice.
