I went to Dr. Dragon on the recommendation of a friend.I needed to obtain a new prescription for glasses. He refused to look at my prior prescription and work from there.When I had two pairs of new glasses made with the first prescription he wrote last month the lenses made my eyes hurt and I was seeing weird in them - he flip flopped my stigmatism numbers for my right and left lenses. Went back yesterday for a recheck and new prescription is now in line with my old RX that he would not look at.

I have been going to Dr Dragon for past 10 years, he is an excellent opthalmogist, removed my cataracts and followed up last year with some clean up necessary. I heartily recommend Dr Dragon and his staff.
