Western New York’s Choice for Comprehensive Medical and Surgical Eye Care
The Legarreta Principles
Dr. Edward Legarreta, Legarreta Eye Center’s founder, instilled the concept of teamwork, selecting people who share core values and have a high personal character. He found that the right people provided support, encouragement and guidance. He has been frequently asked why the eye center is so successful. His response has always been to credit the doctors and staff around him.
The criterion, that he strongly believed led to his success for being in practice for more than 39 years, have become known as the “Legarreta Principles”.
Legarreta Eye Center was established by Dr. Edward Legarreta in 1980 with a patient-centered focus and commitment to excellence in eyecare. The practice has grown over the last few decades and now serves patients in both Erie and Niagara counties, covering the Northtowns and Southtowns, with three locations in Lockport, Williamsville and Cheektowaga.
Our “eyecare family” reached a new milestone when Dr. Legarreta’s son, Dr. John Legarreta, joined the practice in 2015. Dr. John Legarreta added a medical retina division as well as premium lens technology and laser-assisted cataract surgery.
