All of the doctors here are FABULOUS but we have a special place in our hearts for Dr. Nowlin! My hubby had a serious issue with both of his eyes that had to be taken care of at just the righttime. Dr. Nowlin took care of him perfectly! Our family of 5 has been loyal customers for over 5 years now! Highly recommend this location and Dr. Nowlin!

Dr. Nowlin is very thorough, listens to my comments and ensures that I am comfortable with my changing prescription. The receptionists are so friendly and so are the techs that do the eye tests. My favorite part though is sitting downwith Denise and having her help me choose my frames! That's why I continue to go back to Vision Source and Dr. Billy Nowlin. A great experience!
