I've been a patient of Dr. Giddens for as long as I can remember. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my eye care.

Dr. Giddens has been my Doctor for years and is excellent! The group of Doctors (Dr Frankel, Dr Parker, Dr Schwartz and Dr Giddens) at Optical Insight are so knowledgable and they are the best!!We are truly made to feel like family there. The whole staff is very kind. The office manager Angie always makes you feel the door is always open and the Opticians are very helpful and they really helped me to look great in my new glasses which I love. Great frame selection!!
