About VAL-Uvision In Jacksonville

Dr. and Mrs. Rauchwarger teamed up with Dr. Gayle Leinwohl with the goal to give excellent medical eye care at affordable prices for those living in Jacksonville with and without medical coverage or vision coverage. Together they wanted to build a practice where the quality of vision care would never be determined by anything other than sound medical science and excellent customer service.

This gave rise to the famous slogan:

Quality Eye Care with Value in Mind.”

Our Mission Statement

The founder’s values are also established in the company’s Mission Statement:

"To treat each patient with dignity and respect in an atmosphere that enhances the quality of life, utilizing the most highly qualified eye care professionals to provide a caring atmosphere with personalized service, and to protect our patients vision through continuous education and knowledge. This is our purpose!" 

Why Choose VAL-Uvision?

About Us ImageWhen it comes to eye care, we know you have many options. However, we are confident that VAL-Uvision is your best choice for many reasons:

- 1.) VAL-Uvision is locally owned and operated. We have served the greater Jacksonville area since we opened our doors in 1973.

- 3.) Our company is owned by eye doctors, not a corporation. This allows us to ensure the quality medical eye care of a private optometric practice while passing the savings of a retail model on to each of our patients.
