Very thorough eye exam by extremely caring professionals. Love how Dr. Choate took the time to explain what the results of my exam meant and how we could best correct my vision for my specific needs in my work and in my everyday life. Could not be happier with the selection of frames to help me look my best, too! I highly recommend Dr. Choate Eye Associates!

The staff was very nice. The doctor appeared to really care about achieving an accurate prescription. The office was pleasantly laid out. The seating was socially distanced. Everyone was wearing a face covering. There was a variety of eyewear to choose from. The only downside is that the pricing was on the high side - quality care though.

​20-20-20 Rule 

Take a 20-second break every 20 minutes, focusing on an object that's 20 feet from you

This simple exercise from the American Optometric Association is great to help reduce or prevent CVS symptoms from starting or getting worse. It also gets you out of your chair and moving around.
