Excellent care! State of the art equipment which allowed me to avoid the annoyance of being dilated. Dr. Germain is thorough, knowledgeable and friendly. The office staff was as equally amazing. Overall great experience.
Really efficient, welcoming, helpful and personable. I appreciated my experience here very much.

Amazing experience with all of the staff!! Thank you!
It has been our pleasure to serve you for the past 32 years. We have had the privilege of meeting, learning about and caring for so many great people along the way. We will continue to see patients in both offices while recognizing that the passage of time requires us to plan for the future. After several years of searching for the right person, we are thrilled to introduce Dr. Fabian C. Villacis, who will assume ownership of Progressive Eye Care. The practice remains privately owned, not a large, corporate, commercial chain. Our Southbury and Farmington locations will operate under the name New Insight Family EyeCare, joining existing locations in Waterbury and Prospect. We are confident you will agree that the long-standing quality care you have always received will continue and that the practice remains in very good hands. This is important to us. In an impersonal world, we believe that medical care is inherently personal and should be provided as such.
Dr. Fabian C. Villacis is a Connecticut native having completed his Bachelor of Science degree at Quinnipiac University in 2005. He received his Doctorate in Optometry degree from the New England College of Optometry in 2011. His experience includes externships at the Perkins School for the Blind, Worcester VA Hospital in Massachusetts, Aran Eye Associates in Miami, and Dimock Community Health Center in Boston.
In 2012, Dr. Villacis completed an optometric residency in Ocular Disease in the Connecticut Health Care System at the Newington Veteran Affairs Hospital in Newington, CT. Upon completion of the residency, he joined the staff at a multi-specialty ophthalmology group in New Haven County. In October of 2019 Dr. Villacis became owner of New Insight Family EyeCare in Waterbury followed by the acquisition of his Prospect office in February of 2020. Dr. Villacis specializes in the treatment and management of ocular disease, routine eye examinations, and standard as well as complex contact lens fits. Dr. Villacis is also pleased to accept new patients to the practice. He is a member in good standing with the American Optometric Association, the Connecticut Association of Optometrists, National Glaucoma Society, and Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity of Connecticut (VOSH-CT). He has participated in mission trips both in the United States and Nicaragua. Dr. Villacis speaks Spanish fluently as his family is from Ecuador. In his free time, Dr. Villacis loves to spend time with his wife and their five children. He also enjoys playing tennis, basketball, and is an avid sports fan.
The same loyal support staff that you are familiar with will continue to take care of your needs as well as answer any of your questions. Should you wish to make an appointment, please call us at the same number and you will find us in the same office locations.
In closing, we feel confident that Dr. Villacis and his team will continue to provide you and your family the best eye care possible. We greatly value our relationship and thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years. We look forward to seeing you in the office.
Sincerely, Drs. William and Liann Kimball and Dr. Victor Richardson Progressive Eye Care
