About the Practice

The doctors and the staff at The Eye Center have a long tradition of excellent, state-of-the art eye care provided in a warm and personalized setting.

The practice was first opened in 1975 with Dr. Larkin and has since grown to 3 doctors and a staff of 15! Dr. Larkin and Dr. Miller are physican's who provide an expertise in ophthalmic care and Dr. Manning is an optometrist who provides excellent eye care and contact lens expertise. Our patient's include adults and children, and we offer routine eye examinations, contact lenses, and surgery. We are fortunate to have our own on-site surgery center where we can take care of our patients with cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetes-related eye problems. We also are on staff at PorterCare Hospital and Clarity Laser Center for other procedures including the latest vision correction, LASIK. We use the VISX Star4 laser, and the IntraLase Bladeless LASIK technology, which provides a wider range of treatment options, and has the potential to improve your vision to better than 20/20 and significantly improve your nighttime vision. The VISX Star S4 system also leaves a smoother surface on the cornea when compared with other lasers.
