DO NOT GO!!!!!! Horrible place I have even been!!! Poor customer service!! When I made an appointment, they told me they cover my insurance, I went and got my eye exam and it turned that they dont really cover the insurance only have discounted price which I was very upset for the wrong information. They gave me a trial contact lenses I didnt like it, I called back and schedule the follow up appointment, on second one, they gave another trial contact lenses which was good for me. I called them and told them that I like second contact lenses and I would like to order that one. They ordered the wrong contact lenses, which I repeated on the phone couple times that, it will be from the follow up eye exam not from the first one,. They agreed to order the correct one and take the wrong one, they told me they will call me when they recieve the contact lenses, which they never called me for a month, finally I called them month later someone picked up the phone and told me ohh sorry we have your contact lenses and she was very rude, and when I asked them why nobody never called me, she told me I dont know. Thats it no sorry or anything!! Every time I call them they answer and put me on hold for at least 15 mins. and their staff is the rude people ever. I made a very bad mistake and purchase my contact lenses from there however please DO NOT GO THAT PLACE!!!!

Dr. John F Musselman, OD
I found this doctor to be a bit bizarre. He was most helpful in diagnosing me with a condition where I am sleeping with my eye/s open causing severe dry eye pain. He recommended nighttime eye ointment. Solved my problem very well.I ordered new glasses based on his examination. The glasses I received were awful as I couldn't see with them. They tried again to order my glasses. Again, I could not see with the new glasses. I don't mean I couldn't see well, I mean I couldn't see at all. I saw everything as a blur. I said I wanted my money back (paid upfront of course). The doctor said it was still going to cost me $50 because of some crap they were being charged. I paid it because I just wanted to stop complaining and end this fiasco. I had my glasses made elsewhere and they were fine.

The assistants are nice but I wouldn't buy their glasses or go to see the doctor. I saw one lady initially, who was super sweet but gave me the wrong prescription. I could see the license plate in front of me when driving stopped in my car. I went back and the main doctor examined me. He was mean and frustrated at her and just want to get me out as fast as possible. I knew his angry was towards the lady previously but I got a lot of the overflow. I decided to get glassed there which was fine. However, after just a month of two of wear, the film or something is coming off and they look terrible. My mom also went here and she had to get them to recheck her eyes 3 or 4 times because she couldn't see clearly. I won't ever be going back here and will steer anyone I know from this place. Bad service over all and bad care. Go somewhere else.
Tips & Advices
While the first appointment is the most comprehensive, the majority of appointments with an ophthalmologist begin with a basic eye exam followed by a refraction to test if glasses are needed. Other tests might include an eye muscle coordination exam, a check of pupil response and peripheral vision, slit lamp microscope test to look at the anterior segment of the eye, and an intraocular pressure assessment.
Most eye doctors will charge different amounts for their services, but a basic eye exam with an ophthalmologist can range from $50 to $300. Additional tests and treatment will add to the price.
Ophthalmology subspecialties include strabismus/pediatric ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology, retina/uveitis ophthalmology, cornea/anterior segment ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic surgery, and reconstruction.
Ophthalmologists can diagnose macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, ocular albinism, vitreous traction, cataracts, astigmatism, myopia, retinoblastoma, and many more.
The most popular ophthalmology procedures are cataract, laser eye treatment, and glaucoma surgeries.
