Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. At Altig Optical in Fort Worth, TX maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
