Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as 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, both eyeglass lenses, and contact lenses.
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.
Meet Our Optometrists:
Dr. Thomas V. Gordon began to pursue a career in Optometry in 1984 after completing a BS in electrical engineering at the University of Maine at Orono. In 1989, Dr, Gordon received the Doctor of Optometry degree and joined his father's practice in South Casco, Maine. In 1990, the Gordon family suffered a great loss when Dr. Gordon's father unexpectedly passed away. Although it was a difficult time for the family, they pulled together and continued the practice.
Dr. Gordon expanded the office building in 2000 and continued to care for his patients using the latest technology and treatments available in the optometric field.
When he isn't seeing patients, Dr. Gordon enjoys his family time with his wife and three children.
