My annual eye exam and contact lens fitting... I usually dread this like there's no tomorrow. All day today I had been dreading the appointment, and it was with a new eye doctor in a new town so my nerves were higher than usual.
I chose Crane Optical based on Yelp reviews and I'm SO HAPPY I did. As soon as I walked in the door, it confirmed why I wanted to live in Ferndale, the exceptional people I've met. Chatting with the girls up front during my extremely short wait to see the doctor felt like it was routine.
Dr. Crane, how do I begin... His knowledge of the field is stunning. I've been wearing glasses and contacts for 26 years and I'm quite certain I have never been able to see this clearly. He's kind, understanding and KNOWS what he's doing. I was comfortable enough to tell him my dread of these appointments stem from the choosing the better lens test.. 1 or 2, 2 or 3... I'm always worried I won't choose well and then I won't be able to see for a year. Dr. Crane assured me this wouldn't happen. The exam was a breeze! Dr. Crane knows what he's doing and gets it done.
After my exam, I looked at frames. Insurance only pays for contacts or glasses and I always go with contacts. My glasses haven't had an updated prescription in 20 years. After trying on any frame that caught my eye, taking selfies and sending them to my daughter for her opinion, I found a pair of frames that fit my face and are classic with a bit if trend. There is no pressure for a sale, it's a very comfortable atmosphere.
I'm thrilled to have chosen Crane Optical. I thought I liked my for optometrist, but Dr. Crane proved that wrong. From walking in the door to leaving, every aspect is wonderful. …read more
