I’m am new to Houston and was told Vision Corner was the place to go. Dr. Sophia was very sweet and the thorough. The appointment was unhurried and she answered all my questions even offered to email me a copy of my Optos ( which they said takes the place of Dilation) . The frame selection was incredible. I found a Tom Ford pair I really liked. I will definitely be back.

Every time I have visited Dr. Barnes it has been quick and painless! She and her staff answer all my questions patiently and let me try on multiple glasses. Whenever I cannot decide between a pair they tell me to sleep on it and come back later. They are very accommodating with my schedule. I highly recommend this office and their staff!

I received an eye examination Dr. Barnes and then worked with her staff to pick out frames from a pretty wide selection. They made the process easy and comfortable (even during these crazy Covid times), and I’m very happy with the frames I got. I definitely will be going back and recommend.

Definitely. Dr Barnes has provided excellent care to both of my children and myself for many years. She has been able to diagnose and treat several eye infections throughout the years preventing further complications. Her diagnostic skills are outstanding. Equally impressive is the professionalism among her staff.
