State of the art, very thorough exam

Dr. Childs gave me an excellent and very thorough exam, working with me to address my specific needs (reading music in a symphony orchestra) and giving me various options to consider. Computerized notes and eye scans, state of the art equipment. Located in downtown Montclair. Appt was available day after I called for the first time.
