    Myers Martha Ellen
    Dr. Martha Ellen Myers is very considerate, knowledgeable, thorough and patient. She listens carefully and always answers as informatively as possible. She has successfully fitted me for replacement graduated-bifocal glasses in the past and has been successfully treating my glaucoma condition since December 2011. When I lost one of my old faithful RGP contact lenses (over 10 years old) this year, I went in to be fitted for a new pair of RGPs (which actually provide the sharpest vision, are easily kept hygienic, and can last for a decade). She told me that RGPs now usually take a few re-tries to get a perfect fit and prescription from the labs that produce them. (I personally believe that this may be due to the fact that since RGPs are rarely used nowadays, that the “fine art” of producing them is not as it once was – which must be very frustrating to optometrists and their older patients.) Despite my hopes to the contrary, Dr. Myers’ prediction was correct. I had to try two different pairs without success. Having worn hard contacts for almost 50 years, and, I guess, being incredibly lucky in usually getting a good fit on the first try, I was in despair after the first new pair gave me extreme double vision, and then the second pair were uncomfortable in one eye and poor prescription in the other. However, Dr. Myers remained very upbeat, positive and reassuring that we WOULD get this all right – and that this scenario with RGPs these days was not at all unusual. I was not charged anything for these first two failed attempts - the only cost to me was disappointment and my own impatience. Then, three was the charm! The third pair were just right! (A Goldilocks story...) Dr. Myers told me that the slight irritation of my eyelid - feeling the edge of the contact - would likely disappear as my eyes got used to wearing contacts again (I hadn't worn any for many weeks), and though I was dubious, Dr. Myers was right!! Hours later, I couldn't even feel that I had the contacts on! Just that my vision was perfect! The staff at Dr. Myers’ office are always friendly and a pleasure to work with. The equipment used seems to incorporate the latest technologies, making the whole examination process faster and more comfortable. And the price is very reasonable.

    Owens, Dr. Kimberly A.
    I like Dr. Kimberly Owens. She explains what she is doing while she tests your eyes. I like that. Her fees are reasonable.

    Parenti Morris Eyecare
    I have visited a few times so far and have been going for about 14 months. He is very friendly and courteous. He is very informative and has a great bedside manner. The staff is very friendly. I have had no issues getting in for an appointment. I had to wait a few weeks to be seen.

    Banks Family Eye Clinic, dba Dr. Nick Banks
    He is consistent, he does not tell me one thing, and contradicts it the next time. He is very consistent, I think that he is very thorough in his examinations, and he is a nice guy. Overall, he has been excellent, and I have no reason to think otherwise.

    Buell, Dr. Brian W.
    I have been seeing Dr. Buell since 1980. So obviously I trust him to care for my eyes. I feel confident that he keeps up with current medical advances in eye health and that he communicates with me about relevant progress. He also really cares about his patients. He went far beyond what was necessary to take care of me when I injured my eye. He even took time away from important family event to meet me at his office on a weekend to make sure my injury was responding to treatment. He is not especially prompt, but the attention he gives more than makes up for the inconvenience of delays in appointment times. Over the years, his staff has vacillated between being very courteous and efficient to rude and dismissive. In the last few years I must say that his staff has been top notch. Professional, courteous, even friendly, and very supportive.

    Netzel, Dr. Jeff A.
    I just moved to the area and was referred by my husband's co-worker to Dr. Netzel. I called and was able to get an appointment in less than a week. The office was nice and the staff was really friendly. They explained everything they did before they did it, including what insurance covers and what it doesn't and they let me decide if I wanted the stuff that wasn't covered. Dr. Netzel uses Optomap instead of waiting for the eyes to dilate. On top of not having to wait for dilation to set in, it allowed me to see a picture of my eye on a computer screen. Dr. Netzel explained everything he was seeing and explained what it would look like if there was a concern. I didn't have to wait to get into the exam room and he came in as I was sitting down so really, no waiting. I was in and out in less than an hour.

    Banks Family Eye Clinic, dba Dr. Nick Banks
    Dr. Banks has been the vision doctor for my entire family. He does a very through exam and I would recommend him to anyone that needed an eye professional.

    My daughter loves her new glasses and I like that I know what reading glasses to use. Makes a big difference reading the small print:) She was very friendly.
