Meet Rochester Optometrists,

Dr. Paul Caito and Dr. Clinton Sugnet

Dr. Caito and Dr. Sugnet are Optometrists in Rochester providing complete eye care services for the surrounding communities.

Drs. Caito and Sugnet provide exams, diagnoses, and treatments of all disorders that affect the eye or vision. In addition to training in eye diseases and disorders, Dr. Caito and Dr. Sugnet are also trained in anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology. With this background, they are trained to recognize a range of health issues; such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and hypertension.

Drs. Caito and Sugnet work diligently to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attend continuing education seminars and advanced training courses. It is because of Dr. Caito's and Dr. Sugnet's dedication to continuing education that our Rochester patients receive the most modern and progressive vision care available.
