For the greater part of our history, our patients have identified us as "Ossip Optometry". As our company continues to rapidly grow, so has our ability to provide our patients with a more dynamic and complete eye care experience. We are excited to share that we have begun expanding that experience with the addition of ophthalmology. We have two world class ophthalmologists joining us. Help us welcome them to the Ossip family!
So what does this mean for our patients?
Our ophthalmic expansion means we'll now be able to assist patients with two major pillars of ophthalmology: cataracts and laser vision correction. Now when our patients wish to have one of these surgeries performed, we'll be a part of their journey from start to finish. Having these done solely through the Ossip network will give our patients (and us!) peace of mind, as well as letting us ensure the experience is up to what our patients have come to expect from us.
