He was very nice but made me feel like I was crazy. I had worn glasses in the past and had been noticing some changes in my vision with distance but he just stated that what I was telling him was not matching the exam so I just let it go. He then started talking about how he would refer me to a neurological opt doc if i wanted to but that made me feel even crazier. Again nice guy, just might try somewhere else next time. Staff was great also!
