    Dr. Jahnle is the only Opthalmologist that I would recommend to someone who is looking for an eye doctor. I have recommended him to friends and they are very pleased also. In addition to refractions, I've had cataract surgery on both eyes and so have friends and family with success . Dr. Jahnle is friendly, very easy to talk to, puts you at ease and explains everything in detail. I highly recommend Dr. Johnle for ophthalmic care.
