Dr. Hall Says:

"Dr. James Hall has been our family optometrist for several years now. We have found him to be friendly, professional, thorough and responsive.   In recent years, my arms have become a bit short, and rather than sell me bifocals, he introduced me to monvision contacts which I adore.  The office is clean and bright, with a nice array of frames to browse among.

While Dr. Hall's office does have a variety of eyeglass frames to offer, his emphasis is on eye care. I feel my eyes are being examined by an expert and one that really cares. I will continue to trust Dr. Hall as I, and my eyes, proceed through the future stages of my life.

Dr. Hall says...

Dr Hall is widely known for his ability to quickly diagnose eye conditions and refractive errors.  He provides care for the very young, to the very old, and the office is wheel chair accessible.

Contact lens and refractive surgery are very popular and the success rate is near 100%. Certain patients make better candidates based on eye health, refractive error and personality. Yes, personality. Your eye health will change with years, environment, stress and so perception is hard to nail down.  However, Dr Hall has seen his share of difficult to fit patients - be it contacts, glasses or just sitting in the exam chair.

With professionalism, confidence, expertise and the constant goal of providing the best care possible, all of our patients are treated with genuine respect and understanding.

We thank you in advance for choosing Ardmore Eye Care.

"Dr. James Hall has been our family optometrist for several years now. We have found him to be friendly, professional, thorough and responsive.   In recent years, my arms have become a bit short, and rather than sell me bifocals, he introduced me to monvision contacts which I adore.  The office is clean and bright, with a nice array of frames to browse among. His staff are always friendly and helpful.  They also have no problem using your existing frames or fitting glass to other frames. Faithful Dining Companion got frames from Warby Parker and Dr. Hall's office ordered the lenses to fit without a problem.  There are some metered spots on the street in front of the business as well as a metered lot in the rear.  I would highly recommend them as a professional, competent and friendly practice." - Regina 2014

"I've been to a lot of opticians in my life, because of some inborn problems with my eyes, and I've talked to many opticians and optometrists about the scientific part of what they do (I'm a scientist so like the discussions!)I haven't met many of those that seem to know as much as Dr. Hall does. You can tell that he knows his calling very well, had absolutely no problems getting me the prescriptions that I wanted and  needed, and had a lot to say about some conditions that have never been diagnosed before in my eyes. The last doctor i went to had a difficult time just designing some simple up close work glasses for me, but Dr. Hall was able to do it without a question. I'm definitely going to be keeping this doctor for as long as I'm in the area.His staff are also very helpful and friendly, and know their business. Overall it was a very pleasant experience getting our eyes checked and our glasses made through this office.  Highly recommend." -D.T. 2015

"Outstanding care and communication, reasonable billing, surprisingly cutting-edge gear used to explore the shape of my eyes (astigmatism) whereas my previous optometrist had to rely on past opthalmological workup.  All aces, just wish I had found Dr. Hall sooner." - Frederick 2011
