    Amber Zane
  • "At age 24, this is the first time I've ever visited an Optometrist and the experience was great, from beginning to end. Scheduling the appointment was quick and easy, there was barely any waiting in the waiting room, and the eye exam was thorough but quick and painless. This husband and wife duo were extremely professional, but also funny when moments allowed. Thank you so much for helping me pick out the perfect glasses. :)"

  • "Dr. Carol and her husband are exceptional people. They are knowledgeable , friendly, and the practice is very clean. We love their little kid play area for our 3yo. I have severe visual disability but they were able to get me into a pair of contacts that were perfect for my daily routines and activity level on top of some glasses my wife loves. Great frame suggestions from the receptionist. Fully recommend you stop by SEE what they can do for you.. :)"
