Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Family Eye Care is an amazing place to go for eye care health! The staff is so kind and personable and the doctors very knowledgeable!"
    Jacy R.
  • "These people are amazing! We have had several issues with our insurance companies, hours of phone calls trying to clarify coverage for each family member and family eye care was extremely patient and understanding. I became an emotional wreck there in the office with the stress of it all and they were comforting. They helped us in a financial situation more than I could of asked for. I can't thank them enough for what they did for us. Super friendly and professional! Thank you so much everyone!!!"
    Jocelyn Z.
  • "They were able to get me in last minute after calling around and trying to get into an eye doctor for several weeks. I was very impressed with how quick the whole appointment was and how professional and kind the staff were. They explained my insurance benefits and explained it a way I could understand. They also assisted me with making a good choice with glasses and contacts and helped me decide what would be the best decision. Will definitely be back! Well worth the drive from Hastings."
