Patient Reviews

Overall Rating:

Dr. Underwood has seen me for several years. Once my cataracts were at a stage for replacement we discussed my options. He referred me to a surgeon. Having worn glasses since I was eight I was eager for any help I could get. I am amazed how the simple surgery and insertion of new lenses has changed my life and how I see the world now without any correction. What a great team. –Jay Carter

Dr Underwood was great! I tried on just about every pair of glasses in the store and the staff was happy to help and give advice. They didn't pressure me to buy name brand glasses. My glasses came in about 9 business days after purchase, 13 total due to a holiday weekend. Overall very reasonable and thorough. -Stacey Marshall

I have a very complicated prescription. For the first time ever, I have eyeglasses that I actually prefer over my contacts. I see now that, one hour places were not meeting my needs and you basically get what you pay for. Everyone from the front office to the optometrists were patient and professional through every step of the process. I will go to them for my eye care from now on. -Karen R.
