About The Practice

About The Practice


Our practice is devoted to providing exemplary care in a comfortable environment. Your vision is important to us, and every patient is treated like family. We use the most-advanced technologies and medications. For convenience, the office is located on the ground floor, with free parking just outside the door. For patients who need laser surgery, the practice has a highly-effective laser system in the office. The practice is fully owned by Dr. Watson, who makes sure that everything possible is done to help you see your best.


Outside of the office Dr. Watson enjoys spending time with his wife and children, and going on adventures in the great outdoors.
