Our Eye Doctors

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human vision system works. This includes diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses. All our doctors are certified in the use of topical Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agents in the treatment and management of eye disease. They work closely with other medical professionals, including general practitioners and ophthalmologists to ensure all your eye health needs are met.

Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

The eye doctors at Cranbrook Vision Care, Optometrists believe in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health. Drs. Robertson, Bednarczyk, Demarchi and Zorn know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting, treatment for eye disease (such as glaucoma or macular degeneration) or eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery) our optometrists will provide you with the best care, advice, options and follow-up.
