I was having issues with vision in my right eye.....nothing painful, just annoying. I was seen immediately. The exam was extensive and I felt much more at ease.

The Discover Vision Center has been my vision care provider for over 10 years. I recently began consulting with Dr Tovey, when my previous Ophthalmologist retired. Dr Tovey is knowledgeable and his auxiliary staff are kind, empathetic and patient. During the pandemic crisis, I have felt safe and well cared for in his care.

Dr. Tovey and his staff were very thorough and took the time to explain everything. Very impressed. Front Desk staff was not so good - and still waiting for a call back from them to schedule surgery and pre-op. Its been 4 days.
