My 11 year old daughter felt very comfortable in the office. It was her first eye appointment. Dr. Bender answered all of my questions and was very attentive to my daughter during the visit.

Dr. Bender is great. She had to deliver some news that I was not so happy about but she did it in such a way that made me understand more about the diagnosis. I feel very comfortable seeing her and bringing my family to her.

This is my second visit to Dr. Bender's office and I'll keep returning for my eye care. I have found the employees pleasant and courteous and most helpful explaining insurance coverage. Dr. Bender has an excellent "bedside manner" plus she's an awesome baker!

Dr Bender and her staff are always friendly and accommodating. I'm new to, well, any sort of healthcare and it's daunting to have to vet out a bunch of different doctors before finding the right one. Save yourself the trouble and just make an appointment here!

This way exceeded my expectations for a visit to the eye doctor. First of all you get to avoid the whole mall experience of your typical glasses place. The doctor and staff are friendly and helpful , and the early hours are awesome for working around busy schedules. The crowning touch were the delicious baked goods given as a lagniappe to patients. All in all a great experience.
