Dr. Benfield is awesome. His bedside manner with my timid three year old was calming. If your child has yet to have their eyes examined, Dr. Benfield is a must!

Most Thorough Eye Exam I have ever gotten. I brought my 9 year old daughter in for an exam and I was impressed on how the Dr. explained each step to her answering all of her crazy questions with a smile. It’s obvious from our experience there that the staff are very dedicated to their roles and care about the patients they are serving.
