Complete confidence in Dr. Barrett. Had one cataract “repaired” with the other eye scheduled in a month. My sight is so much better!

I have been suffering with seeing with both eyes going on three years and after an hour I had an answer. I really appreciated time to try to explain and her finding an answer. Looking forward to working it out and being able to read without closing an eye. Thank you for you help!!!

Dr Tholen did an excellent job. She was knowledgeable, skilled and friendly. She performed a thorough exam and took the time to explain what she was doing and the results. I give Dr Tholen my highest recommendation.

Dr. Wilke was friendly and caring. The staff that helped me choose new glasses were patient and helpful. I was surprised how much more affordable my new glasses were instead of the chain eyeglass store I had been going to.

I really like Dr. Dunning, just wasn’t that impressed with the two other people that helped before I saw Dr. Dunning. I’m assuming they were pretty new.

The visit was quick and very informative. I really like Dr Huizenga. She is very thorough and takes the time to explain her findings even if there are minimal or no changes at all. I never feel rushed. The whole staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Grand Rapids Opthamology.

I was very pleased with Dr. Veldcamp's review of my previous eye prescription. I felt she understood my frustrations and helped correct the error. I would definitely recommend her to my friends. Thank you Shirley
