About Us


Our Promise

Vision Today provides high quality eyecare, eyewear and contact lenses to our patients in a relaxed, comfortable and professional setting.

Optometrists Who Care

You’ll find Dr. Laurie and Dr. Lowenstein in the practice on a daily basis to serve your eyecare needs. We’re not a national or global eyecare chain—and we pride ourselves in caring for each patient as an individual. We aim to provide excellent service by well trained doctors and professional staff. Please let us know how we’re doing!
