Our Technology

At Kennedy Vision Health Center, we believe in choosing advanced technology that’s as comfortable as it is effective. During every eye exam, our team walks you through your screenings and how each tool, from our digital phoropter to our Optomap retinal imager, helps us stay a step ahead of eye conditions. When we catch issues early, we can slow or halt their development well before they affect your vision.

“The staff and doctors at Kennedy Vision are top notch. I have been seeing Dr David Kennedy for 11 years. My wife sees Dr Traverse. They have the state of the art equipment and do a thourough job. I feel they are really interested in our health and both of us trust their recommendations even if it means eating Kale. We feel safe in their office with all the Covid related upgrades in place.”

“I was at Kennedy Vision with our daughters at the end of April. Although Dr. Traverse and everyone else was very helpful and professional as usual, I want to specially thank Kelsey, who did our initial exams. Both of my daughters commented on how nice she was, how they felt she really interacted well with them and how she really seemed to know what she was doing. I also thought she did a good job and all of us were surprised to learn she had only been doing her job for a couple of months. Patient contact is a strength for Kelsey and we hope to see her again next year.”

“What great service!!! I was treated so well the moment I walked in. I was taken care of by 4-5 staffs and every single one of them treated me with the same level of care. I felt safe, warm and welcomed. Dr. Traverse was very knowledgeable and informative. All eye docs I’ve visited before never told me that all I needed was a pair of computer glasses to easy my eye strains. Besides that Dr. Traverse gave me a few free drops to try out so it helps out with the dry eyes I have. This was definitely one of kind for customer service because I kept reminding myself I have to leave a review since they did such a wonderful job.”
