I went here to get new glasses. Dr. Schneider was very friendly and thoughtful. She made sure my insurance would cover the visit because I had other eye exams this year that she wanted to make sure hadn't used all my insurance. She was helpful also in her comments about frame choices. I would definitely recommend her.

The office is great! It was really easy to get an appointment. All of the staff were amazing! They helped me pick out glasses without being pushy. Everyone was very friendly and helpful! The only downside was I had to pay extra to use a machine to diolate my eyes. I did have the option to diolate my eyes and not pay extra. It just sucked to pay extra. Other then that small detail the place is amazing. I highly recommend

Office had ample parking and although there were about 3 patients picking out glasses frames, I was given my paperwork to fill out and then sat for less than 3 minutes before I was taken into the back to begin various eye exams. Dr. Schneider is very personable and thorough, which wasn't surprising to me as she had personally responded to my appt scheduling with an email and quick questions about my insurance. There were quite a few people looking for frames (end of the year, probably using the last of their FSA like yours truly), but in short time I was helped by both an employee and Dr. Schneider herself as we tried out various frames and all agreed on the winner. It was a very enjoyable experience!
