The History of Valentine Eye Care
Welcome to Valentine Eye Care online! Our team of eye doctors and eye care staff are here to care for all of your vision needs. We handle everything from adult and children’s eye exams and hard-to-fit contact lenses, to eye emergencies, treatment of eye diseases and co-management of eye surgery such as LASIK. We are proud members of the AOA and the Massachusetts Society of Optometrists.
Valentine Eye Care is the successor to the optical business of the late Barry Foss, RDO, formerly known as Foss Optical Corp and formerly located on Memorial Drive in Leominster, Massachusetts. Established in 1972 by Mr. Foss, it was owned and operated by him until he sold the business to Dr. Valentine in May, 2012. Dr. Valentine relocated the business to its present location at 80 Erdman Way and the name Valentine Eye Care was established at that time. In March, 2013, Dr. Valentine acquired Crown Point Eye Associates, the optometry practice of Dr. Donald H. Czelusniak, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts to assimilate into Valentine Eye Care.
Dr. Valentine has been seeing patients in the Leominster area since 2004.
We now provide comprehensive eye examinations for children age 3-1/2 and up and for adults of all ages. We are especially equipped, trained and experienced to treat difficult cases including geriatric patients and complex refractive problems including amblyopia, strabismus and keratoconus. We utilize hi-tech and computer-assisted examination equipment to provide optimum vision correction.
Our office provides expert, professional contact lens services for both new wearers and experienced wearers. We not only fit simple myopia, but we welcome complex cases involving astigmatism, high myopia, keratoconus, gas permeable contact lenses and the new lenses for presbyopia.
All of the doctors at Valentine Eye Care are specifically trained and licensed to treat most anterior segment eye disease and superficial eye injuries, including contact lens complications, conjunctivitis, red eye, foreign body, iritis, dry eyes, allergy, etc. We also co-manage LASIK, glaucoma and cataracts.
We are specifically trained and experienced in treating computer related eye-vision problems so common with computers users today. Many computer users can benefit from specifically prescribed computer glasses which are designed for optimum vision and performance for long periods at the monitor and work station. These glasses often include anti-reflective lens treatments and special bifocal lenses for older computer users.
In our beautiful optical boutique, possibly the finest in the area, we are proud to offer a broad range of optical materials and eyeglass frames from our value-line to such designer products as Coach, Gucci, Juicy Couture, Kate Spade, Safilo, and many more. We can provide the latest hi-index lenses, Crizal anti-reflective coatings, photochromic lenses and well as a wide choice of PALs (progressive addition lenses). You will not be disappointed!
Please give us the opportunity to provide all your eye care needs!
