  • Dr.
    Dr. Richardson wants the office to be a comfortable, relaxing place for you to be.

    Dr. Richardson became interested in Optometry as a child when he put on his first pair of glasses. He was enchanted to see leaves on the trees and stars in the sky. That's when he decided he wanted to help other people see what he was seeing for the first time.
