Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

    "

    In an effort to keep business local I found this little optometrist shop in downtown Renton.  All I can say is what a great place.  They were ready for me early, made everything very simple, had a nice selection of glasses and could not have been more friendly.  I can SEE myself going there again.  Get the pun??? Seriously though, great place!
