Gone here 3 years in a row. Fast, friendly, and available when I am. My doctors child also goes to the same school as mine. I will continue to go there.

I couldn't be happier with the doctor I saw and their staff. The optometrist took the time to answer all of my questions and I never felt pressured to buy anything. He explained everything that he was doing and I even got to see a scan of the back of my eye. As others have posted, the office has a lot of high tech equipment- much different from what I've seen in other offices in the past. I think the hardest part was trying to pick out my new frames- they have A LOT to choose from.

My son has eye convergence insufficiency. This vision problem affects his school performance, sports abilities, and personal confidence. As his mother who also has this issue, I know how frustrating and confusing this problem can be if undetected and not treated with vision therapy. Many places will not start treatment until the age of six, but at 4S Eyecare they were willing to treat my son at the age of five, in the fall of his kindergarten year with therapy. As a result, he has done a "180 change" at school (quote from teacher), is more confident, and enjoys learning and sports again. As a parent, it is difficult to see your child struggle. 4S Eyecare met our families' needs and beyond. The staff is warm and welcoming and was willing to work around our family's busy schedule. The quality of the doctors' care was outstanding for both myself and my son. Thank you 4S Eyecare.

I couldn't be happier with the care I received from 4S Eyecare. I've been here a few times now and every time I've received prompt, professional care. The optometrists are extremely knowledgeable and were able to accurately diagnose the issues with my eyes. The optometrist spent an appropriate amount of time with me and described in plain English and technical terms (because I wanted to know) what was wrong with my eyes. Honestly, I frequently see an Ophthalmologist when I have eye problems, but I got a clearer, more accurate diagnosis and care here. It feels like they really care about keeping my eyes healthy and if they spend all day doing that...well, practice makes perfect!
