These guys are great!! I had severe eye strain and was having trouble with my vision. They were very detailed in my exam and took time to get very detailed in my exrays and detailed explanation of what was going on with my eyes. The Dr the staff, just wonderful. They even put lenses in my Mom’s old frames which are sentimental to me as well as getting me beautiful new Tiffany frames! I can’t say enough about my wonderful experience here! This is now my go to place for my eyes and I couldn’t be happier with my experience here.

Great staff, very friendly! Had to bring my toddler with me, and they were very patient with her. (She wasn’t being bad, just wanting my attention.) Slightly long wait time. Quick turn around on receiving contacts and gave me a deal that was cheaper than Wal-Mart. Overall great experience.
