Laura S. Miller, O.D.
“I absolutely love being an optometrist and getting to know my patients personally! Practicing as a low vision specialist is incredibly rewarding. I enjoy helping children and adults be able to function better in their daily lives by improving their visual functioning with low vision aids. I also really delight in the challenges of fitting difficult contact patients, helping treat my patient’s eye disease, and watching a child see clearly through their first pair of glasses. I have been truly blessed with a great family, wonderful staff, and awesome patients! I would love to have you as a new patient in the practice.”
