An eyefull of information about us.

A little bit about us

We’ve welcomed patients and their families from all over the Maryland and Pennsylvania area for over 25 years. 

In practice in Westminster since 1984, Dr. Helen Hooper has been a part of a staff committed to offering the highest quality eye health care, service and products – from childhood to adulthood.  Being around for nearly three decades, Carroll Eye Care has watched their patients grow and have helped their children to see – a true family friendly environment.  It’s a place where everyone really does know your name – a local business that treats its patients like family.  We don’t just ask for insurance cards, but we ask how the kids are and how the rest of the family is doing.

As the years have advanced so has our equipment.  Carroll Eye Care is making sure that our “family” has the best technology and practices for optimal eye health.  Our ZEISS i.ProfilerPlus , for example, with its wave front scanning analysis, factors in all of the aberrations of one’s eye to provide the high definition prescription needed.  From state-of-the-art devices for examining your eye’s health, and equipment to aid you in selecting that “oh-so-perfect” set of frames, we also have a profession staff here to serve you.

Dr. Helen Hooper and her entire staff take pride in their ability to take the time needed to ensure that Carroll Eye Care’s patients are completely happy with their vision, whether it be with contacts or glasses.  That’s why our motto of nearly 30 years is “we won’t quit until we have the right fit”.
