I just wanted to thank everyone at Grand Rapids Optomology today. We had the pleasure of receiving a free eye exam and eye glasses and finally my fiance will be able to see the world as its meant to be seen. The service and care we received was amazing! We are so grateful for everything! Such a kind and selfless thing they did by offering the chance to receive this gift. Thank you so much!

I cannot thank the team enough for the help they provided when I brought my uncle for his appointment and had my hands full with three rowdy kids. The help offered and the understanding that sometimes parents get those “off” days with the kids misbehaving, was greatly appreciated!!

My husband first introduced me to Dr. DenBraber when we were married in 1997. He had been going there for several years before that as his son needed special eye care. Dr. DenBraber provided that special eye care to our son and he still does to all his patients. Dr. DenBraber treats all his patients with kindness and compassion and his an expert in his field.

Dr. Shannon Stanek and Erika are simply beyond amazing to work with. As someone with eyesight issue and who struggled with putting in contacts, they both really made this entire experience enjoyable and effective. I tried different eye places and they don't even compare to GR Ophthalmology in Caledonia. Very friendly, caring and efficient practice.
