The Dr.was very nice and helpful as were the staff. Glasses were expensive not many affordable frames or selection. I did have to wait awhile to be seen considering I filled out my forms online to save time.

We love the office staff at this location, and Dr Nowlin is fantastic, but this was our second experience with Dr Barnes and will definitely be our last. My teen was left at the check out counter without the doctor coming to speak to me about the visit. That wouldn't be recommended under a normal visit, but she discovered that he had a double eye infection. Surely that should have prompted an immediate discussion with the parent that brought him to the appointment! After I requested to speak to someone regarding his exam and the required after care I had to practically interrogate the doctor for every answer I needed. She wasn't at all forthcoming with her responses and didn't volunteer any information at all. Everything was in answer to the questions I asked.

Dr. Barnes was very courteous and professional. The result of my exam was clearly communicated along with recommendations to address the situation. She took the time to walk with me to the front desk rather than just leaving me in the examination room to wait for further assistance.

My family and I have been going to Dr. Barnes for over ten years now! She was the first person to recognize that I might have a condition known as Sjogren's, which is an autoimmune disease. All these years later she's still taking care of me and is greatly appreciated! Tonya, her office assistant is also VERY knowledgeable and helpful with any insurance issues you might have! I highly recommend Dr. Barnes and her professional staff!!

Dr. Barnes is absolutely the best optometrist I have ever seen. She changed my contact prescription just enough to improve both my reading and distance sight without the need for reading glasses or bifocal contacts. Her office staff is friendly and efficient. They take the time to help you pick out glasses that look good on your face and give you honest feedback. i have never experienced this level of care in any other optometrist office. it is a long drive for me to go out to Schertz but it is so worth it. I give them an A+ for quality and compassionate care.
