"Dr. Payne was very good, and I understood more about my eyes after this. They were on time. We were well taken care of. Thank you."
"Dr. Spence is awesome. He's never in a hurry, always thoroughly takes time to answer questions, and seeks out the best solutions to my issues. Really kind, caring, and professional. Great staff all around!"
"My family has been with Caris Eye Centers for a decade. The doctors and staff are very knowledgeable, professional and even able to think outside the box when normal solutions prove ineffective. There seems to be low turn over, so I imagine the staff enjoy working there as well."
