  • "Wonderful place to go very polite staff and ver clean. Will definitely be going back."
    Virginia
  • "Have been for basic eye exams, glasses fittings, watched for a spot on the back of my eyeball (that was thankfully just a freckle!) and even treated for a slight abrasion caused by a wayward mascara wand.
    Have always had the best care and the friendliest treatment! Although I consider Dr. Fontenot my eye doctor, I did see Dr. Duarte for my eye abrasion and she was super sweet, professional and helpful. Would highly recommend both Dr's.!"
    Christy
  • "Dr. Fontenot is very professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of eye care. He takes the time to talk to you and explain in simple terms what he sees in your eye examination and scans. His staff is just as knowledgeable and courteous. The entire group makes you feel like family when you walk in the door. I would recommend them to everybody."
