When I realized I haven't had my annual eye exam in over 2 years, my partner recommended this office. I'm new to the area and it's been a rough transition but I am so glad I came here! Dr. Vetha was very informative and thorough and so were her staff. We got a baseline for everything because eye disease runs in my family so we'll be keeping an eye out for anything out of the ordinary. I also got some very cute glasses with the help of so many wonderful people! Thanks for making everything so easy for a new patient!!

I’m writing this while dilated, so please excuse any grammatical errors. I am a previous employee for Thomas Eye Center. I still work in optics, and I still have a regular doctor in my current practice. BUT today, I had my exam with Dr. Vetha. There is no equivalent to the care and professionalism that a patient receives than with this practice. From your first phone call in to schedule an exam, throughout your visit, and beyond - the people here have their patients at the forefront of their minds. I know some staff by name, and some I’ve not met - but if they’re in that building then they are some of the best (if not the actual best). If you have ever wanted to have a doctor that was more than just a white coat and fancy words - then this is your place. This is where you will receive care and support. They do not set their patients up for failure. If you have a need, then they are sure to fulfill it - and in the instance that they can’t, you’ll know they’ve done their very best.

This place is wonderful! We recently switched to Thomas Eye Group after being with our previous eye doctor for around seven years. I was completely nervous, but it was the best decision I have ever made. The entire staff is absolutely amazing. From the ladies at the front desk (and those who answer the phones) to the optical assistants and doctors, all are welcoming and so kind. I have to give a special shout out to Brooke for her help this past week because she was absolutely fabulous. My daughter was trying contacts for the first time and Brooke walked her through the whole process. She was patient and encouraging, and just made the whole experience a joy. I cannot say enough. I am so glad I made the switch.

Dr Thomas is a very thorough doctor. He is patient and kind and answers my questions. He also always asks about me and how things are going at home and with family. His staff are courteous and professional and I have never had to wait more than a few minutes in his office. After I moved from the Athens area I still drive an hour to see him. That’s how much I like and trust Dr Thomas.

Our paperwork was ready to go and there was no wait time for our appointment. The tech and the doctor were very kind and patient and answered all of our questions. They did a very thorough job with the exam and afterwards helped us pick the best frames. I highly recommend Thomas Eye Center for all of your vision needs.

The optician office staff were great as well, but I want to specifically compliment Kim. Kim was exceptionally helpful; because of her, I now have the most fabulous glasses that I love! Thank you so much, Kim! And thank you Thomas Eye Center!

Professional, modern and immaculate facility with the friendliest staff ever. My husband, our son and I have trusted our eyes to Dr. Thomas for several years now. He is very knowledgeable and thorough in his examination process and is personable. He is always thoughtful to ask about the family. The office carries a wide selection of eyewear. The associate who helped me select my new frames in November was awesome.

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.

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!

This was the most positive experience I’ve had at any optometrist in my life! I’m usually nervous at any medical type of establishment, but they put me at ease as soon as I walked in the door and were attentive to all of my needs, questions, and concerns. The building was clean and looked brand new with an easily accessible parking lot. I can’t recommend this place enough!

They are up to date on the latest technology, guide me, a glasses/contacts wearer for most of my life, to update my practices and ensure I’m setting my eyes up for the best health possible. I’ll definitely be back!

They are very thorough when doing your exam which I appreciate, but this practice is focused on sales as their main objective. In office they are pushy about ordering contact and glasses through them. I called to ask for my PD distance which I had paid for at my 2019 exam and they wanted to charge me 10 dollars to tell me that information over the phone. I will not be returning next year.

These are truly wonderful people and I highly recommend them. They have gained me as a customer for life. Friendly, knowledgeable staff that was very patient with all of my questions about being new to the world of wearing glasses. I started wearing them about a year ago after my first visit to them and went back today for my (second) annual exam, and with an updated prescription my vision is 100 percent again. When they said my quality of life would improve after being able to see more clearly they were not kidding. If you're looking for a great eye Dr, go see them! You won't be disappointed. Dr Thomas knows his stuff and got me squared away in no time, and the building was immaculate-organized and clean. When you walk in, you can tell that every single person takes pride in working there. Sorry for such a long review, but it was hard to sum it up in just a few words!

Excellent facility, everyone working there was very pleasant and professional but beware, their eyeglasses prices are expensive!I was shown a basic metal frame with progressive lenses, anti glare and "blue blocker" coating and, I also purchased a set of single vision replacement lenses for some computer glasses. Total cost over $1200! Then I was told after deducting what my eye care insurance covered, I was "saving a lot of money" - while still paying over $660??A quick check online showed I can order what appear to be similar metal frames with the same type of progressive lenses with all the coatings for $137 shipped! The online provider has a 14 day no questions ask return policy so, no issue with getting a pair online you don't like and being stuck with them.Even giving some allowance for their customer service during and after the sale and the convince of trying on the glasses, how can you justify this incredible difference in cost? With the money they collect from my insurance they're making $1000 on a pair of glasses.Bottom line is I suggest you shop around before buying your glasses here just because you have them do your eye exam. By law, you can get a copy of your prescription to take with you - just tell them you want one when you check out. Then get their prices on the glasses you like. Take that info and shop around at other optical shops in town and online if you are comfortable with ordering on the internet. I'm pretty sure you can find good quality frames and lenses much cheaper then their prices.They are certainly free to charge whatever they like for the products they sell. And I'm sure they use high quality frames and lenses and hopefully back those up with knowledgeable staff and good customer service. But, is all that worth overpaying hundreds of dollars for your frames and lenses?In my case, I paid their prices this time because of the convince and the quality eye exam and customer service but, if cost is a consideration for you, please take the time to comparison shop.
