Our Mission: 
At Paragon Ophthalmology our mission is to provide our community with the best quality, comprehensive eye care for the whole family in a cost-effective manner.
Vision Statement:
Our practice is committed to improving the eye health of our neighbors in the greater Kalamazoo area. We are committed to staying abreast of the newest in diagnostic and treatment modalities that have proven value to our patients. We are committed to maximizing our availability to patients and referring physicians.

About Us:

Ophthalmologists are medical doctors specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of vision problems and eye diseases. Treatment may consist of glasses, contact lenses, eye drops, medicines, conventional surgery, laser surgery, or some combination of these.
Examination, medical treatments, special eye tests, and minor surgeries and retinal and glaucoma lasers are done in the office. Major eye surgery or surgery requiring general anesthesia are done, usually as an outpatient, at Borgess or Bronson Hospitals where our doctors are members of the surgical staff.
We are proud members of the following organizations:
