Fantastic optometrists. Dr. Sugnet is always punctual with his appointments and has demonstrated time and again that he cares deeply for his patients. True professionals!
After wearing hard gas permeable contact lenses for 50 years, Dr Caito successfully transitioned me to soft lenses. The lenses are fitted perfectly and are comfortable. My vision is great. Thank you.
I’ve always had an excellent experience here! They’ve always gone above and beyond with my eye care and glasses. My appointments are always a pleasure!
