I've been wearing contacts for over 20 years and my visit with Doctor Melantha Nephews was my best optical appointment ever. She listened to all my concerns and took extra time to make sure my prescription was perfect. The brand shesuggested is the best fit I've had in contact lenses. My eyes have felt amazing all day and I can't wait to get a new pair of glasses ordered. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Nephew is as professional and proficient as they come. She's constantly on the move and does her best to minimize your time in the office, while still giving excellent treatment and service.

Dr. Nephew has been checking my eyes and giving me glasses prescriptions since 2014. Thanks to Dr. Nephew, I learned my eye pressure was high, consulted an ophthalmologist and learned I was at risk for glaucoma. Just saw Dr. Nephew againa few days ago for glasses and the eye pressure is back up, so off to see the ophthalmologist again.
