In addition to routine eye and vision exams, experienced ophthalmologists and optometrists provide examinations or referrals for the evaluation and treatment of many eye disorders. These disorders include retinal and corneal conditions, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye problems, macular degeneration, myopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

Bassett Healthcare offers comprehensive eye care services at the Cooperstown Eye Care Center, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. With eight eye care providers located in Cooperstown and throughout the region, Bassett Healthcare ensures outstanding patient access to eye care services.

Patients can schedule their contact lens evaluations and fittings, then order their contact lenses following their appointments.
