Patient Comments (3)

Would give zero stars if I could! My family & I will NEVER be returning! First, there is a $100 "refraction fee" on top of the $205 exam fee. That is madness! I've worn glasses for 15 years and contacts for 4 and let me tell you I have never paid more than $90 flat at costco. Just wait, it gets...more

He charged me $400 for an incomplete exam. He didn't do any of the standard tests and never dilated my pupils. I've gone to the eye doctor since I was 18 months old so I know what an eye exam should be. He's a shyster.
