Dr Thompson is an awesome eye doctor. Best yet. He has been the only one that has been able to get me a contact lens prescription that is as great as my eye glasses. He listens to what you have to say and always has suggestions to make things better. Great place to go!

Had a great experience last week with Premier Eyecare’s newest addition, Dr. Kelly Deering. She is very knowledgeable, personable and dedicated. I have been going to Premier Eyecare for the past 14 years and the whole team, from the receptionist to the contact specialist to the Optometrists, are always great to work with.

The entire staff has went above and beyond for myself and my kiddos. Whether it's been an eye infection, broken glasses, or when my son got his first pair of contacts, they always make sure that you are taken care of. They are not only the best in the area but the best in the business! Cannot say enough wonderful things about Premier Eyecare, their doctors and all of their staff.
