Amazing!! Super friendly staff and really answers all your questions. Dr. Amanda was outstanding, and gave me a lot of useful knowledge regarding my options for lasik. Office is up beat and lively looking. I believe her name was Jami (sorry if I remembered incorrectly) but she was amazing at teaching me how to put in contacts. I've struggled for years trying to put them on, but her method was clear, precise, and fun. Highly recommend this location.

Always a good experience when I come here. Dr. Ly is great and always makes sure I understand what’s going on with my vision. I’ve worn glasses for years and, have seen a lot of doctors. She by far is one of the best. She makes my husband and I both feel like she really cares and, that’s why we continue to come here.
