Patient Comments (1)
Streator, IL |
Took daughter for eye exam was in waiting room for 1.5 hours for a 20 minute exam. They do not carry a selection of glasses and refer you to a website. Don't measure PD. Left my child with dialated eyes for 50 minutes before seen by doctor who we saw for two minutes just to be told yes she does need glasses. Dr doesn't take measurements for the actual prescription the techs do. Waited 10 weeks for an appointment.
