This was my first time back at University Eye Specialists after going to a walk in optometry office inside a big box store. I will never make that mistake again. I had contacts that did not fit properly and Dr. Cole picked up on that immediately. Her exam was thorough and she took the time to answer any questions I had. I will definitely be sticking with Dr. Cole and University Eye Specialists going forward.
