Meet Our Doctor, Mark T. Dean, OD

As a specialty care eye doctor, I always look beyond 20/20 eyesight as the sole definition of good vision when I do an eye exam or provide care. That’s because I know that MANY visual skills, such as eye teaming, eye focusing, eye tracking and more are essential to “normal,” good or so-called perfect vision and that deficiencies in these critical visual skills can cause poor performance in learning, reading, sports and even ATTENTION.
