Thank you to Dr. Amy, Dr. Mike and all their friendly staff. I never met a dr. office with such passion for their guests to get the best possible care."
Diane M., Hawley,
"I have been having terrible headaches, which I thought were because of my neck problems. (I've been seeing a chiropractor for almost a year now.) Well, it turns out my headaches are because of my eyes! A new style of eyeglass lens was prescribed (some type of blue blocking lens) because I work on a computer and play a lot of video games at home. It was like someone flips a switch when I put my new glasses on....the lights don't bother me at all, and after 3 weeks of wearing these all day, guess what????? My headaches are gone!!!!!!! Thank you to the amazing and patient doctors and staff at Lakeside Vision for changing my life, for the better!!!!!"
"I've been nervous about getting my eyes examined, but everyone there made me feel very comfortable. The doctor was professional, and I cannot wait to get my new glasses!! It's going to feel like getting a make-over....I may just have to get a new hairdo to go along with my funky frames! I am so thankful I went...I've waited far too long, and I will be going back to Lakeside Vision at least every year from now on!"
