Welcome to Fenway Health’s Eye Care Department
We are committed to providing the highest quality, comprehensive eye care for our patients in a comfortable, caring, and compassionate environment. Our goal is to keep our patients seeing the best they can and to keep their eyes healthy throughout their lives.
Comprehensive eye exams are an important part of preventative health care. Our doctors provide eye exams using the newest and most advanced diagnostic equipment for eye disease available. We listen to your concerns about your eyes and offer suggestions on how to keep your eyes healthy.
In addition to comprehensive eye exams, we manage and treat most eye conditions and diseases. We have a large contact lens service with a wide variety of services available to our patients including fittings with rigid gas permeable, toric and bifocal contact lenses. Our contact lens specialist, Dr. Kelly Blake completed a residency in specialty contact lens fitting and is experienced in fitting the more complicated patients including those with corneal disorders such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration and corneal transplants.
The eye care providers at Fenway Health have many years of experience in refractive surgery and currently co-manage patients with TLC laser eye centers. They are available to discuss LASIK and other refractive surgery options as well as provide patients with pre- and post-operative care. We also offer pediatric and eyeglass services.
We also invite you to visit our beautiful optical shop located on the 1st floor and meet our experienced licensed opticians, Debra Quinn and Kara Hnath-MacFarland, who will help you choose frames that make you look great and lenses that best suit your visual needs. We carry the latest in stylish eyewear and sunglasses from designers such as L.A. Eyeworks, Tom Ford, Oliver Peoples, Ray-Ban, Alain Mikli, Ted Baker, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Persol, Calvin Klein, Eco, and many more to keep you looking and seeing great, all at very competitive prices. You will find the relaxed and friendly atmosphere a perfect place to discuss your eyewear needs. We also accept valid prescriptions you may have received from your own eye doctor.
