Super good appointment. Didn't try to push me to buy anything which is always the biggest bummer of an eye exam, haha. They also don't have to blow air in your eye thank goodness. Would go back again for sure.

Everyone was super friendly!! Sarah even gave me a “tour” of the photograph of my eye. Usually doctors just say everything looks great, so it was cool to learn about my eyes!! I would highly recommend Sarah aa Cathedral Eyecare!!!

This was the best eye appointment I’ve ever had :) It was in fact the first time someone really explained things to me, not just a eyewear prescription recommendation but how my eyes are abnormal and why certain prescriptions/methods would look work. Also just had fun, enjoyed conversations with everyone.

Such a great office! Really cool and laid back décor, very clean and the entire staff were smiling and so personable. Dr. Chewerda is awesome! Smart, funny and determined to find the way to my perfect eyesight with glasses and contacts.Wish I had found this office before I spent all that time and money on that "other" ophthalmologist practice that could never get my Rx right. :(

It was great. Fast (but not rushed), efficient, and all around great staff. Dr. Chewerda was very polite, thorough, and informative on my options for contact lens wear and care. It was refreshing to have such an all around great experiencefrom an eye doctor. And one that is near my home.

I'd been struggling with wearing contacts over the past few years because of the change in materials the companies are using. Dr. Chewerda figured out right away that my eyes don't respond well with one particular chemical, so she had metry a different type of lens. Instantly, my eyes felt better and now I'm finally able to wear contacts again. She is smart, no-nonsense, funny, and easy going. I highly recommend seeing her!
