COVID-19 Update


We are happy to announce that Dr. Cotter and six members of our staff have now received both rounds of the COVID-19 vaccine as of January 24, 2021. We are all doing well and are ready to continue practicing into the new year.

We encourage everyone to get their vaccine as soon as it is made available to you. We are all in this together!

We recommend this screening test for all patients. OCT(Optical Coherence Tomography) is a completely painless and advanced screening system that checks for serious conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, vitreous detachments and more. Like an ultrasound, OCT uses light waves rather than sound waves to see beneath the surface of the eye. Ask for an OCT brochure for more information. This is in combination with the Retinal Photos, which show us a digital image of the retina and optic nerve.

Our eye care center offers a range of eye health services to clients of all ages, from children to older adults.

We are a full-service optical center. We understand how much first impressions matter. After all, your face is the first thing people see when they look at you.

We perform digital ocular photography, static perimetry, corneal mapping, and automated refraction with hi-tech equipment and computerized systems. This gives our patients more precise solutions for their vision needs, with faster results, all done in our on-site optical lab.

Eyeglasses are more than tools; they're fashion accessories that give you a whole new look. At BFEC, we have our fingers on the pulse of fashion's changing trends. We carry the latest eyewear collections in a variety of styles, colors and materials. Let us help you find the right frames and sunglasses that show off your personal style.
