Before Mayo Family Eye Care, Dr. Karl Erdmann owned the practice at 191 High Street for 30 years, providing eye care to generations of families. He was known for his genuine and caring personality.
In 2016, Dr. Erdmann retired to spend more time with his family and handed the practice off to Dr. Sabrina Mayo. Since the transition, the practice has been updated with state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
Recently, a new wing was added to the building to include more exam rooms, diagnostic room, preliminary testing room, and larger optical. The building is now ADA accessible and has plenty of parking to accommodate for a growing practice.
