I had an amazing experience at Lakeside Family Eye Care! Everyone was extremely compassionate yet professional. They took an appropriate amount of time with me to ensure my exam was thorough and that all of my questions were answered. They have a wide selection of frames and contacts, as well as state-of-the-art equipment. The only disappointment I have is that I didn't come here sooner! Wonderful place, wonderful doctors, wonderful experience. I don't write many Google reviews so please know that when I do, the business made an extraordinary impact on me.
