I was nearly 10 minutes late (yikes- my bad) but the office was calm and THERE WERE WARM COOKIES (+++++) Dr. Skidmore was super sweet and cool and explained stuff in ways I could understand it (this was my first opticianappt ever) and overall was really nice. The staff was not pushy when I looked at their glasses and decided to look other places. They also have this super dope machine that they use instead of dilating your eyes with drops. For a second I could see inside my eye (from the inside of my eye). It was really freakin cool.
