Thank you Discover Vision Center. I was absolutely pleased with your service. From the moment I walked through the door I knew this was the place for me. Everyone was so cordial and kind and the lady that took me back to the examination room made me feel right at home, She was very thorough. Dr. Emily A. Williams had the same demeanor as did the rest of the staff. All were very kind and friendly. You have an excellent staff at Discover Vision Center. Thank you. Donna M. Bledsoe

I had an appointment with Dr. Williams yesterday, 2/28/18. She was very professional but so very kind. I had never been to an optometrist before but received a better exam from her than from the ophthalmologist I had seen for years. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing eye care.

I found Dr. Williams thorough and informative regarding my eye health. She took time to explain what she found in the exam and I felt she provided me with an excellent solution to be implemented by my eye glasses provider.

Dr. Emily is very competent. She detected my cataracts when my old Dr. didn't. Don't let her young age fool you as she is as good as I have ever seen. She is VERY smart and I am recommending her to anyone who will listen. She also has me as a lifetime patient

She focuses on your overall eye health, rather than routine prescription exams.
