Family Eye Care Services


Better vision and routine eye care has a direct impact on your quality of life. Make sure that your eyes are in good health by taking the time for regular vision check-ups.

Our state of the art testing services are designed to go far beyond simple prescription writing. For example, Fox Chase Family Eye Care utilizes MacuHealth AMD supplementation as well as the Macula Risk NXG genetic test to determine your risk factor for AMD.

Early detection and treatment of ocular problems is critical for long term vision health. Our comprehensive eye exams are among the best you will find. But don’t worry, we also write and fill eyeglass prescriptions, as well as accept many popular vision insurance plans.

We proudly serve Northeast Philadelphia, Jenkintown, Cheltenham and the surrounding areas. Contact our eye doctors in NE Philadelphia or visit our practice today!

Q&A with Dr. Lance B. Dunoff

Dr. Lance B. Dunoff Answers Your Eyecare Questions

If I sit too close to the TV will it hurt my eyes?

The truth is if you need to sit close to the TV to clearly see the screen, you may already have vision problems. Sitting close to any object to see it better is a symptom of nearsightedness and you should talk with your doctor.

Nearsightedness, or myopia, is the most common refractive error of the eye, and it has become more prevalent in recent years.

Why Do I Need Regular Eye Exam?

clipart 027While most people schedule regular check-ups with doctors and dentists, many are not aware of the importance of an annual visit to the eye doctor. Regular eye exams can be the key to the early detection and treatment of emerging vision problems, eye diseases, and a number of other health issues. When you come to a North East Philadelphia optometrist at Fox Chase Family Eye Care for an eye exam, you will receive comprehensive service designed to find and correct any vision or eye issue. Don’t take good vision for granted, schedule an appointment today!
