Had been a few years since my last eye exam when we lived elsewhere, so made an appointment to be seen by Dr. Chesner. He and his office staff were knowledgeable and professional. As I have gotten older, Dr. Chesner advisedme on some issues with dry eyes and my needing reading glasses. Helpful and efficient, was glad I went to their office!

This is a casual, friendly office, with competent, helpful staff. I have been going there for about 25 years, and have recommended them to several people who also had good experiences. Since I was paying cash (rather than insurance), my twopairs of glasses were ready just 2 1/2 hours after I left the office.

Dr. Chesner was thorough and explained things as he went through the exam. He and his stuff were friendly and very helpful. Their prices on glasses was very reasonable. I just move to SD and am so glad I found Dr. Chesner. I'm a regular now.

The only issue I had is that although I filled out all the forms online they still had me complete the forms. We have been going to Dr. Chesner for many years. My appt was at 9 and my husband apptwas at 1030 but Dr. Chesner saw my husband at 9 and took me right after so we were able to get out of there by 10. It was quick and great service.

His staff was friendly, fast, and easy to deal with, and he's a very easy-going professional who got me right in and out the door without feeling rushed or pushed to buy anything I wasn't prepared for. I'm really looking forwardto getting my new glasses, and I'll be going back to his office for contacts in January 2016.

This was my first visit with Dr. Chesner and he was great! I have an unusual eye condition and he took a lot of time not only to fully understand it, but to fully explain it to me. My previous eyedoctor would put me through all of the regular tests, but I never understood what he was doing. Dr. Chesner told me what he was trying to achieve with each of his tests (as did his staff) and then helped me to give him the kind of feedback he needed in order to find the right prescription. My previous doctor just got frustrated with me when I wasn't giving him the information he was looking for. I hate having an eye exam, but I actually enjoyed it this time. I also didn't feel pressured to buy a more expensive frame, or to add unnecessary things to the lenses. I'm glad I went. :-)
