Dr. Iyore says, “I became an optometrist because vision is such an integral part of everyone's life. My role as an optometrist provides me the opportunity to improve the quality of life of all my patients. My favorite part of helping my patients is listening carefully to obtain a clear understanding of their expectations including their vision and eye health concerns”.
When not working, Dr. Iyore enjoys spending time with his family and friends and preparing his favorite dishes!
"For over 43 years it has truly been my honor and privilege to provide eye care for many of you and your families in the Fitchburg-Leominster area. Thank you for the support you have extended to me and the trust you have placed in me. For this and the many friendships that have resulted I am grateful beyond words.
As of March, 2013, I have decided to officially retire and pass the baton to a colleague, a highly qualified and respected optometrist, Dr. Henry R. Valentine, who has been seeing patients in the Leominster-Fitchburg area since 2004.
I have the utmost confidence that Dr. Valentine will continue to provide exceptional, competent and compassionate eye and vision care to you and your family in the same tradition that we have strived to do over the many years at Crown Point Eye Associates.”
