This was my best eye exam ever! With the history of eye disease in my family it is very important to me to know that I am getting a thorough eye exam. Dr. Ramsey listened to all my concerns and addressed them all as she did my exam. She explained everything she was looking at and why in a way I could understand. Her equipment is state of the art equipment. I love my new glasses. With everything so cookie cutter and impersonal these days, I am so happy to have an eye doctor who cares so much and gives such personal service.
