I have been going to Dr. Somers for years. I have my cataract surgery scheduled with him after the first of the year. I would not think of having anyone else do the surgery. I have complete confidence in Dr. Somers and I know he will take excellent care of me.
in Orange, TX |
Needed eye exam and new glasses. Never had a pair of glasses I liked in the 20 years I have needed to wear them. UNTILL NOW THAT IS!! I love my new glasses. Will make the 700 mile trip again when I need new ones again.
