Excellent vibes. Have had a great experience both times I've been. The exam receptionist is absolute... ly lovely and Dr Peterson has been super easy to work with. I trust what they tell me and feel very comfortable in the space. I would highly recommend this office

Dr Lewis has been helping me with my eyes for going on 20 years now. I always look forward to my 10... to 15 minutes with him. He's great and I always get the best prescription for the time. When he moved to Alvernon Optical I went too. Picked up my new glasses today (Saturday) and everything is still wonderful. The new glasses cleaned up all the fuzziness and I couldn't be happier. He takes care of my wife’s eyes as well and when she started having cataract issues that went beyond what new glasses could do, he recommended the right people who fixed her up. It was a pleasure working with the rest of the office staff (manager, eye tech and opticians) as well.
