Dr. Lior Koppel


"To me, it wasn't enough just being able to grind glasses properly as an optician; I also wanted to improve people's lives.
So I switched careers and became an optometrist. With my extensive optometry education and over two decades of experience, I can help you have good vision that will last a lifetime."
