Dr. Sanyukta Awale lends her extensive knowledge of corneal and retinal care to non-profit organizations serving underprivileged patients in rural India. Dr. Basel Wahib interests includes contact lens, ocular disease therapies and laser surgery consultation and co-management.

A Variety of Eye Care and Optical Services

Bruce Coward & Associates strives to be the only primary eye care clinic your family will ever need. We achieve this goal by providing a full spectrum of eye and vision services, including:

  • Eye examinations - Regular eye examinations help us watch out for any conditions that might be threatening your ocular health, even before you experience symptoms. In addition to examining the front of the under magnification, we can employ pupil dilation to view inside the eye in great detail. Vision testing enables us to identify refractive errors that require correction.
  • Eye disorder/disease diagnosis and treatment - Our eye doctor can diagnose and treat a wide range of eye diseases and disorders. We provide everything from glaucoma medication, conjunctivitis remedies and dry eye treatment to referrals for eye surgery to treat complex retinal conditions.
  • Eyeglasses and frames - You can fill your vision prescription right here at our optometry center. We're proud to provide high-quality optical products such as eyeglasses in a variety of fashionable designer frames.
  • Contact lenses - If you're looking for contact lenses, we've got them. We can provide either standard soft contacts or a variety of specialized lenses for hard-to-fit conditions, depending on your vision and eye health needs.
  • Laser vision assessments - You might be an excellent candidate for laser vision correction. We can assess your ocular condition to determine whether this procedure is right for you, then co-manage your recovery process.
