Foresight Optometry

Established in 1974. Foresight Optometry has offered quality vision care products and personalized optometric services to our patients in Concord and the surrounding areas.

Dr. Garry Yacoub began the personalized optometric practice that has grown into Foresight Optometry. Dr. Jeanette Hochstatter carried the torch from 2006 until 2016 at which time Dr. Joy Michelsen and Dr. John Michelsen took over the care of our special patients. With our new space, we now welcome new patients and take many forms of insurance. We look forward to meeting you!
