Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been living in Florida for 5 1/2 years and as you know had a difficult time finding an optometrist and optical store that was satisfactory. At both of the optical stores I went to prior to yours that I purchased prescription glasses from, the glasses had to be remade and were never quite right. After the second place, I then found your establishment where I received exellent service from Dr. Diaz, Joanne and most recently, Troy. I see great in my new glasses and look great in them. I love my glasses and Florida Vision Optique!"
