Welcome to General Optical

General Optical provides thorough eye exams, the latest in eyeglasses and contact lens technology, and a willingness to meet or exceed your expectations.

Our new OCT machine!

We at General Optical Co. want to thank you, our patients and clients, for all your continued support during this past year.  If you are interested in coming for some new eyeglasses, just call ahead so we can reserve a time for you! This way we can make your visit with us enjoyable by minimizing your wait time and giving you more personalized attention.

We are excited to introduce new technology in the office! We now have an OCT. Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT is advanced eye scan technology that uses light waves to see beneath the surface of the eye. An OCT exam created detailed images of the back of the eye. These images help us to detect possible warning signs of serious eye health conditions.
Thank you all again and we wish you all a very healthy and safe New Year!
