I am Ben, from Meansville, GA. My family and I will always strongly recommend Dr. Takle, Jr. for any eye care need. His brilliance and compassion assures patients they are in great hands. My brother and I have used the Takle Eye Group for years, and I recently referred and encouraged my mom to see Dr. Takle, Jr. as well. She did and was also very pleased. Trust your vision to no one else!

He is great. He lifted both my eye lids and they look . My son said look great. Looks like you can see more and you have your big brown eyes back. . great. So many nice comments from family and friends. He was confident and made me feel more relaxed. So glad my sister told me about him. Thank you Dr. Takle.
