One Star

Prescribed dry eye medication for me-made my eyes worse-had to pay over $350 for medication I cannot use.Prescription for new glasses too strong-cannot see with new glasses-will need another eye exam.Saw both my husband and son in the same room at the same time for initial eye exams-unethical and unlawful.When I questioned the office manager,she was rude and dismissive,only calling me back later to try to backpedal-too late! The place is run like an assembly line-will go where we are treated with respect and get our money's worth.
