At our two Chester County office locations, in West Chester and Exton PA, Dr. Steven Reto, Dr. Harry Halscheid, Dr. Christopher Lehman and Dr. Sabrina Sherman provide comprehensive eye examinations for patients of all ages. Drs. Reto, Halscheid, Lehman and Sherman are Board-Certified in the Treatment and Management of Ocular Disease, and all four doctors provide emergency on-call service for patients 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. Our eye doctors specialize in contact lens care, and our practice has often been selected as a site for Clinical Trials in the development of new contact lenses.
To ensure that our patients receive the best care possible, we offer the services of several highly-regarded ophthalmologists. When surgical care becomes necessary, our primary doctors may schedule a consultation with the ophthalmologists in our practice. This provides a convenience to the patient along with excellent continuity of care.
Lastly, we are proud to offer the specialty services of Pediatric Eye Care and Vision Therapy. When one of our patients requires the services of a specialist for learning-related visual conditions or binocular vision disorders, a Binocular or Perceptual evaluation may be scheduled with Dr. Lehman.
