Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Fremont Vision Source the leading provider of vision care products and services in Fremont.
At Fremont Vision Source, we are proud that both of our doctors, Dr. DeVries and Dr. Schindler, have earned Fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry.
