Our Mission

Higgins Brothers’ Vision Care started in 1982 with the concept and goal of providing every one of our patients a personalized and high-quality eye care experience. 

We live and practice by our motto: “Caring, Knowledge, Skills, and Service.” This motto is the backbone of the way we continually provide the highest quality of care to each and every patient we have the privilege of working with.

We endlessly invest time and resources to gain the latest knowledge, instrumentation, and technology to ensure our patients receive the high-quality care they deserve. Dr. Higgins constantly takes advanced courses to increase his knowledge and skills, ensuring that all patients receive the best possible care. Dr. Higgins is fond of saying, “you could go see an eye doctor in NYC, and you wouldn’t find an instrument, knowledge, or skill we don’t have here in Plainville, CT.” 

Our focus on patient care goes beyond only caring about our patients’ eyes. Dr. Higgins’ focus is to improve our patient’s overall quality of life, whether that means seeing better, functioning better, looking better, or feeling better. 

We maintain an amazing selection of the latest designer frames and use the highest quality optical lenses. We fit all contact lenses, including astigmatic, bifocals, scleral, and orthokeratology. We treat and manage all eye diseases, including dry eye disease, conjunctivitis, cataracts, retina disease, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.  

Being keenly aware of the unmet needs of those patients’ needlessly suffering from dry eye disease, Dr. Higgins recently created the Dry Eye Treatment Center of Connecticut. This dry eye oasis has all the latest diagnostic and therapeutic equipment possible and, most notably, the knowledge and skills to return our patients’ lives to normal. It all starts with the most accurate diagnosis, followed by a personalized treatment plan created just for your specific dry eye needs.

We hope you will join our family of patients and learn why over 16,000 patients choose to get all their eye care from Higgins Brothers’ Vision Care.
