Oakdale Optical now offers a more comfortable, spacious setting for patients to receive exams or browse for eyewear.
“The eye itself can tell you so much about a person’s overall health system,” explains Dr. Trent Cole of Oakdale Optical Center. “Your vision affects everything.”
Cole, who purchased the practice seven years ago, is continuing Oakdale Optical Center’s 21-year tradition of serving the community.
In addition to offering a full range of optical services and high quality eyewear as well as treating standard eye conditions, the center specializes in treating eye movement disorders — frequently getting referrals from Children’s Hospitals and Clinics.
