Excellent visit. Helpful people all around, calm and relaxing atmosphere. Came in and had a technician help me perform my eye exam and measurements almost immediately. After, the doctor helped me further, explained what she was going to do, and helped examined my eyes thoroughly. The glasses guys were helpful too, sitting down, picking frames, and adjusting as requested.

Friendly, nice doctor. None-too-subtle upsell to their retinal scan machine though (vs. dilation).

I have really high anxiety when it comes to optometrist visits and exams, but the entire staff was great! They really put me at ease through the entire process. While the Congress location might be a little inconvient due to parking etc, it is the best optometrist I have ever been to in my life! I would highly recommend Dr. Richards!
