How are you reflecting a new Detroit?

As part of the Henry Ford Health System, we are reflecting a system that has been Detroit-based for 100 years. Continually striving for quality care and bringing fresh innovation to an ever changing market. OptimEyes continues this trend with our comprehensive vision exams, fashionable eyewear, and great customer service. We pride ourselves on our foundation and that is what has kept Detroit alive.
