Eye Care - Optometry

Numerous factors affect the cost of an eye exam, from your choice of optometrist or ophthalmologist, to location, such as at a retail store or doctor’s office.

Up until recently, optometrists didn’t think a child’s nearsightedness was something that could be changed, but new research has developed methods to stop it.

Struggling to read with aging eyes is normal and is a condition known as presbyopia. Talk with your optometrist about these options to make reading easier.

I must say over the many years going being examined him I can say he is very thorough doctor, but the personnel he has answering the phone and scheduling appointments has cost him 3 patients out of my home. Most recently, I had to join that list of patients. Last year, his office staff called at the last minute to cancel my appointment, and they failed to offer me a new appointment date. In other words they implied that they did not want my bussiness. I have good county benefits and I felt I was being treated like my parents are treated with medicaid doctors. As I stated Dr. Gatorbaum is a great doctor and communicator but I am not impressed with his office staff lack of communiction and customer skills. Sincerely,

Routine two year follow up that had to be rescheduled because of some new issues. Very limited waiting time and much of the exam was done by a technician ("which one is better, #1 or #2) which I was fine with. Dr. O did all the inspection of the internal eye herself. Very limited waiting time for her as well. The exam was quick, efficient and she was good about answering questions. I never felt rushed.

I've gone to Dr

for several years, and I find him very competent. He's thorough in his exam, further testing (if needed), and will refer you on to ophthalmologist if warranted. I find him friendly, easygoing, and easy to speak with.

just happened to be in the lobby on his off-day and stopped to talk to me. He went so far as to do a preliminary exam free of charge and spent over an hour of his time to talk to me. The staff and doctors are all very welcoming and I cannot speak highly enough about Dr.

They were excellent! We were without health insurance at the time and they were extremely helpful and understanding. They examined her and gave us samples to keep costs down. The total bill was less than $100 and we were in and out in under an hour even though she did not have an appointment. The time between the call to the office and when we were finished was less than 90 minutes! Everyone was very friendly and kind. I would visit this office again anytime the need arose.

was very professional and punctual. I arrived early, prepared to wait and he saw me right away. His manner immediately put me at ease. He took time to answer questions I had regarding different lens materials, different lens coatings, and frames.
