It's always a pleasant visit, but also one where time and attention is spent to ensure that I get the best possible vision. This was just a contact re-check, but Dr. Laura spent the time to tweak the prescription ever soslightly to achieve better near vision. She's the best.

I hd an excellent set of visits with Doctor Martin to change my prescription to soft contact lenses. It took about two to three months for my eyes to readjust to normalcy, following my change from older hard contact lenses. Wewent through a series of for or five adjustments to re-aclimate my eyes to the proper prescription. Doctor Martin also helped me to adjust to a new method of introducing the contact lenses to my eyes.
