Your Eyes Are Our Specialty!

Founded in 1972, the Thames Eye Group combines the services of Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, and Licensed Opticians to efficiently provide excellence in eye care services. We have two modern offices conveniently located in Mystic, Connecticut and Westerly, Rhode Island.

Dr. Charles Lanzillo and Dr. Prior Parker are Board Certified Ophthalmologists with over 20 years of experience who use the most advanced medical and surgical techniques to diagnose and treat eye disease. They are on the staff of Lawrence & Memorial Hospital and on the consulting staff of Westerly Hospital. Their expertise is available for new patients and for consultations from local physicians and optometrists with whom they commonly share patients.

Our Optometrist provides routine eye exams and contact lens fitting in our Mystic office with extended evening hours for your convenience.
