I have been treating with Dr. Hathy since about 1990. I was delighted to see him again! He has always been responsive to my vision needs in the most caring and gentle and professional manner. I was seen promptly and his staff, especially Lisa, treated me professionally and with courtesy.

I could not have asked for a better experience!

I could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you Dr. Hathy and all the wonderful staff for making it such a great experience. Dr. Hathy was thorough and really explained everything to me! I really appreciated it! Sara and Amber were great with helping me find the right style of glasses and sunglasses. The machine they have that shows you what you would look like in multiple frames is very very helpful in choosing!! I love Hathy Vision Center!
