What Our Patients Say
Dr. K was very knowledgeable and explained what was going on with my vision and made me feel very confident about my updated prescription. The frame selection was incredible and I was matched with the perfect pair very quickly. Can’t say enough about the doctor, staff and frame options! The whole experience was fantastic.
I couldn't have picked a better place to buy eyeglasses for the first time. The entire staff has been so helpful and patient with all of my questions and issues! Dr. Kirkconnell, , May and Alan are always helpful and professional. May, in particular, has spent so much time helping me to pick out the right frames and teaching me about all of my options for lenses. They have a great selection of frames as well! Will definitely recommend this office to family and friends.
Dr. Kirkconnell and his staff have always been excellent at helping me with all my eye care needs. Alan in particular has also been a delight any time that I have had the occasion to interact with him, and he has always steered me in a good direction when he has helped me either choose frames or what options to go with for lenses. Before I saw Dr. Kirkconnell all I knew were the random doctors and such at places such as Visionworks and Lenscrafters, and he is definitely a large step above them. As someone who relies heavily on both my glasses and contacts and as such takes them very seriously, I can say for certain that you are in excellent hands if you choose to see Dr. Kirkconnell or his staff no matter how small your needs may be or whatever off the wall questions you may ask him. In short if you want excellent service, quality products, and to help support a local business, you can't go wrong here.
Everyone needs regular eye exams. It’s important for adults to schedule eye exams to monitor their eye health and check for problems. Conditions that are often detected during eye exams include glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Early detection of these conditions allows for the widest range of treatment options and the best chance of slowing or reversing any symptoms.
The field of optometry changes quickly, and now many more patients are able to enjoy the flexibility of wearing contact lenses to correct their vision. Computer Vision This allows us to schedule the extra time required for contact lens fitting or prescription updates.
