  • Terry Noble
    "As a child, I had a hard time at school. I had difficulty reading and was labeled a “slow learner.” It was only later revealed that vision problems were at the root of my difficulties. Once I saw an eye care professional and was fitted with corrective lenses, my performance in school excelled. We see these type of success stories every day at Dr. Anderson and it’s one of the many things that makes my career so rewarding!”

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Love this place! Thank you so much!!! I highly recommend!"
    Sophia S LoyaPedraza
  • "I have gone to other doctors and I was always given hard contact lenses that I couldn't stand, I have Keratoconus so that's the only thing I could use. I though the only thing I could get is a cornea transplant but Dr. Ramirez and his wife informed me of a new contact lense that now I've had for 3 yrs and it's the best thing that I could have found. They are both such friendly people and I would recommend them to anyone!"
    Brenda Aidee Silva
