I have been diabetic since i"m 5 years old. Thanks to the excellent care i"ve recieved from Dr.Kraft, my eyes are very healthy. You cant imagine what piece of mind that gives me. The entire staff is so professional and friendly. I feel like family whenever I have an appointment there. Many of the staff are still there after all these years. If you need a great doctor with a wonderful staff you must see Dr.Kraft. You will be glad you did, hes amazing!!!

I love going to Dr.Kraft for all my eyewear needs.The staff is so professional and kind. Everything they do gets explained in great detail. There are never any surprises. The staff always checks my insurance ahead of time to be sure my procedures will be covered. I love the optical dept, what a great selection of frames. They take my vsp so i save so much money!! I cant imagine going anywhere else.

I had cataract surgery and Dr. Kraft implanted the wrong lenses in the wrong eyes. Sadly, I am stuck with this forever as there is nothing they can do. It is so disappointing because this has honestly affected my quality of life. I had been a patient for years until this happened. I honestly feel like Dr. Kraft could care less that my new norm was life changing all because he screwed up!

His staff are so friendly, I always look forward to my appointments there. I highly recommend his practice with all your eyecare needs! I was so excited to find out they take VSP and eyemed too!

I went to see Dr. Kraft due to an eye infection. I had great care and his staff was very friendly. I went back there for a complete eye exam and ended up buying my glasses there. My family now comes here!
