“It had been entirely too long since my last eye exam. The office was spotlessly clean, and the staff was all very nice and personable. I needed extra time to shop for frames and used their website to shop current inventory. When I called back to schedule a follow-up glasses appointment, they said some frames were at the other location and gladly offered to bring them to the Nocatee office within a day or two. All around super nice staff and great experience.”

“My visit was great. They were on time, explained everything they were doing, and reviewed the results of the tests. Everyone was very friendly. All of the options for glasses were explained, and there was no pressure to purchase the most expensive options as I have experienced in other offices. Overall it was the best eye doctor experience I have ever had. Great experience.”
