Skin tones, hair color and style, and life styles are all taken into consideration when selecting glasses.

Testimonials

CC

Went here for my 10 year old daughter. We have had some questionable eye docs at other places, this one was amazing! Dr. Phifer was polite and informative. He didn't treat her like a baby but he kept it simple(for both of us). Definitely above average eye care. Comfortable environment. And the staff was helpful and very polite as well. Pleased through and through! Best eye doctor I have ever been to and I have seen lots throughout the years! Update: I've seen both Doctors their now and equally like both of them! Young Phifer is just as friendly and helpful as his father. Even with 3 in my family needing glasses I prefer this place a thousand times over compared to the 'cheaper' place on TV.
