Dr. Walton takes time to explain things with you. He is friendly and you can tell he cares. His nurses are helpful and show they care as well. My previous eye doctor retired and I wanted to find a young and good one. I'm with Dr. Walton now for the duration.

Dr. Walton and staff are very professional. They were very reassuring and answered all of my questions regarding my refractive surgery. I did not experience any discomfort during or after my procedure. Their follow-up was equally professional.
