This is the first eye doctor I have visited that I feel properly assessed my eyes and educated me! I have gotten glasses before, none of which I could see out of due to undiagnosed extreme amblyopia and astigmatism. The glasses prescribed to me helped me see clearly for the first time in my adult life. 10/10 would recommend, not to mention the excellent staff!
