What a great experience. Nice office staff and VERY thorough eye exam. They take complex subjects and make them understandable. They always take time explaining all the options and their effectiveness.Todd P.1/21/2019

I had an eye issue over the weekend. Left a text Monday morning asking to see Dr. Wattenhofer ASAP. They called before they even opened to set up an early morning appointment. I was seen by their quick and efficient staff, and the explanations from Dr. Wattenhofer are ALWAYS so thorough, as was the examination. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Vision Source Specialists!!!!!Deb H.3/09/2020
