Patient Reviews

Overall Rating:

I work downtown so it's very convenient. They are very thorough with all of the eye exams and with the frame fitting. Also very responsive to modifications, if you happen to need them. Excellent service and very good deals from time to time - I got a pair of prescription sunglasses for pretty cheap. -Andres D.
