Meet the Optometrist

Meet Gales Ferry Optometrist, Dr. Mark Lopez

Dr. Lopez is an Optometrist in Gales Ferry providing complete eye care services for the surrounding communities.

Our practice was started by the father of Dr. Mark Lopez, our current head optometrist.  Dr. Lopez Sr. served 22 years in the United States Navy as an Optometrist and started the practice in his home in 1964.  It grew rapidly, and in 1980, we moved to our current location here at 1026 Long Cove Road, about a half a mile north of the Naval Submarine base. Although the practice has gone through changes throughout the years, we’ve stuck to our original concept..... Offering you good service at competitive prices.

As a licensed optometrist, Dr. Lopez provides exams, diagnoses, and treatments of all disorders that affect the eye or vision. In addition to training in eye diseases and disorders, Dr. Lopez is also trained in anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology. With this background, Dr. Lopez is trained to recognize a range of health issues; such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and hypertension.

Dr. Lopez works hard to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attends continuing education seminars and advanced training courses. It is because of Dr. Lopez's dedication to continuing education that our Gales Ferry patients receive the most modern and progressive vision care available.
