After not returning for 2+ years the staff informed me my dr had left and a new gentleman had taken over. I, just wanting to replace my lost glasses, didnt care and got scheduled. I found this visit just as pleasant as any other, the dr was nice and we joked and chatted and discussed recent travels while he thoroughly checked my eyes. He mentioned I could get bifocals now but dont need them quite yet, and just come on back when I notice I cant read at a certain distance - I felt informed and forewarned but it was up to me what to do with the information. When it came time to get my new glasses selected the staff told me what my insurance covered and helped me find frames that best fit my face, and did not just lead me to the most expensive as I am always suspicious someone might be tempted to do. I found a great pair of glasses almost fully covered by insurance, and they explained all my options (anti-glare, transitions, lens types) quite well. My husband was with me since we knew I likely needed my eyes dialated, and he now has his own appointment because of the continued good experience I had.
I was worked in, as a new patient, on a Friday afternoon with an eye emergency (to me, having never experienced such, before). The staff was very helpful in getting me registered, insurance checked, appt. made, and more. Dr. Connorton patiently heard my concerns and performed a comprehensive exam of the eye. Since my previous optometry clinic (with loads of optometrists) felt it was easier to blame me for not scheduling my emergency to occur before 11:45 a.m. on a Friday, and had no option for me but to wait for an appointment during the following week, I will be moving my care to Dr. Connorton.

This company gets no stars. I misspelled the name of the drug I am allergic to and the girls at the front desk made fun of me. Then the doctor who is new since my last yearly diagnosed me with an astigmatism which I have never been diagnosed with. Ive been going here for 14 years but quality of personnel has diminished. By the way you are born with astigmatism so my current diagnosis would mean doctors have missed it for 25 years.
The eye doctor here is the best but the people working the front desk are far from professional. Unfortunately this is the only place that takes my sons insurance so we have to go. But they have always seem to sneak in charges and over charge on services. My suggestion is to have your eyes examined here and get your glasses elsewhere.
Ive been going to these guys along with my whole family for over ten years. Ive never had a bad experience there. I just made another appointment with them today. I will continue going to them and highly recommend them.
Great visit! I got a scratch on my eye and they saw me immediately. Very quick and very professional. They gave me a temporary contact, a prescription for eye drops and I was back at work in about 30 minutes.
