I had an excellent experience with Dr. Locke at the Family Eye Care Center today. My eleven year old daughter was being fitted for contact lenses for the first time. I sought out this practice because reviews had said that they specialized with working with children who are first time contact lens users. I made a few calls to the practice before my visit. I spoke to Gina and Brittany who were both incredibly helpful regarding my insurance and other questions.
I am so glad we decided to make an appointment. Dr. Locke was incredibly patient and kind with my eleven year old daughter, who, as the visit went on, we realized was very resistant to the idea of contact lenses and is just not ready for the responsibility at this time. (I wanted to give the idea a try because it could have helped her vision, but apparently I will have to pick my battles!) Despite my daughter not being cooperative at all when it came to the fitting and removal of the lenses, Dr. Locke was so very, very caring and patient. The more frustrated my daughter became, the kinder and more understanding Dr. Locke was. Her assistant, Bobby, was also very kind. I am so glad we came across town to Family Eye Care Center. The fitting and removal could have gone so much worse, if we hadn’t come across such caring professionals. Highly recommended. We will be back next year and I’ll probably come for the my annual visit too. 🙂 Thanks, Dr. Locke.
