Testimonials

I would just like to thank you for the superb and professional services I received from you and your staff. In past years, I always had a problem with my glasses never being quite right. I wear progressive bifocals and would have to move my head in all different positions in order to see what I was trying to look at. After I received my glasses from Dr. Jones, it was a whole new clear world. I can't say enough how thankful I am to have found you.

As a happy patient of Dr. Jones, I decided to send the rest of my family to see him. He was very patient with my kids who had the most thorough eye exam they ever had, We were also fortunate in that Dr. Jones found that one of my children has an astigmatism that had been missed by previous doctors. Thank you Dr. Jones!
