Dr. Alex Wood, the owner of Ithaca Cayuga Optical Services on the Commons, said he was honored to have so many people trust he and his staff to care for their vision over the last 30 years, and credited his staff with bringing the same level of care and passion to the work that he has tried to during that time.
“I love my patients and it is a very serious responsibility to take care of their eyes,” Wood said. “My staff and I have been here over 30 years on the Commons and we feel very welcomed in Ithaca. [...] Ultimately, we’re here to help people see better, put their mind at ease if they have questions or issues, and try to have a good time each day. I try to learn something from each patient along the way. [...] I owe a great deal of gratitude to my wonderful staff who care as much for our patients as I do.”
