have to spend minimum 2 hours here. Was told to go back to waiting room while my eyes were dilating. waited too long and the dilation started going away so had to be re-dilated and told to go wait again. didnot make it clear that contact lens prescription would not be provided. Save your time and money and go elsewhere.
