Any issues with your Cornea and this is the guy to go to! I had to bring my mom to see him for an emergency while she was visiting. He knew exactly what was wrong, even though it was a very strange issue. He was so friendly and professional. I HIGHLY recommend this doctor.

Dr. Wilkinson did a great job at helping me understand my eye exam rather than just telling me that everything looked ok. He took the time to answer all of my questions and came up with a plan for me to improve my vision. I am very pleased with the way he addressed my concerns.
