Dr. Tingley has helped my 7 yr old Grandson regain sight in his left eye when others couldn't. AJ had 20/800 and basically couldn't see at all out of his left eye. Last visit, his vision was 20/60 and he's reading small print with just that eye !!! Thank You, Dr. Tingley !!! Kevin Connolly

Charged me for frames I never purchased. Tried to charge me for a $200 for a credit on my account. Wait almost and hour every time and see the doctor for 5 minutes. Was 10 minutes late once and they sent me home. Lots of staff, and they hang out and gossip. Don't know which brands of glasses they sell. Conflicting information from one employee to the next. Confusing billing and when you call, they cant explain it. Get written quotes because they will bill you different.
