Our Reviews

Very friendly staff and a great doctor. I am here because I was not satisfied with my last eye exam at another practice and there was great reviews here. The staff is so friendly, and made picking out glasses really fun and I never felt rushed. They are eager to help and the doctor is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain things to you.

TSO is close to home and very convenient for me. The lady spent a lot of time helping me find the glasses that best fit my need. I needed glasses for computer reading and needed a pair that would give me the best view of the screen. She took me directly to pairs that fit that criteria and worked with me to select a pair. She was very patient with me. Also, we both worked together to find something that was both fit my budget and my criteria.
