“In 2018, I took my 90 years old father to a routine eye check up. The Doctor there found a problem with him that required urgent surgery in both eyes to don’t go blind. Thanks to her my dad’s vision is perfect for his age. Great service! 🌹”

“What great customer service! We went to get new glasses today and from the moment we walked in until we left the manager was outstanding. She had several styles of frames set aside for my mother-in-law to try on, and took great care to make sure the measurements for the glasses were perfect. She explained in detailed all of the choices that were available for frames and lenses. This store and it’s great employee put their customers first.”
