What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr. Thomas is an excellent ophthalmologist. I was extremely impressed with his services and his staff. Office is clean and is really nice and comforting. He addressed my needs and executed possible solutions for eye issue. But overall, I was very impressed with an excellent staff and great group of professionals. Can’t wait to come back again. Thanks for the spectacular service @thomaseyecenter.

SUCH A GREAT EXPERIENCE!! Dr. Thasan was so nice and friendly! I went for my eye exam on a Tuesday and my AWESOME Rayban glasses were ready by the following Thursday afternoon! I could not be happier with my glasses and the experience I had! I will be recommending them to anyone who needs a new Optometrist! Thank you Thomas Eye Center!

I have used Thomas Eye Center for the last 2 years, and it is always a wonderful experience! The front staff, doctors, and support staff are all very welcoming and make sure you get the services you need. The first time I bought a pair of glasses they allowed me to try on as many as I wanted, and helped me decide which pair looked the best for my face shape. I recommend them to anyone needing an ophthalmologist.

Dr. Thomas and his staff are always welcoming and kind. I feel like I’m not just a patient who is rushed in and rushed out. They’re always prompt and on time with reminders and verification of appointments and give plenty of notice if for some reason they have to reschedule. I’ve never felt unappreciated or like I didn’t matter to them. I appreciate everything Thomas Eye Center has done for me, and I always recommend them to anyone who asks!
