Dr. Lowe is professional, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Her staff, especially Theo, is wonderful! You will receive good customer service (something hard to come by these days) from the moment you walk in the door. They went above and beyond to accommodate me and I am grateful. I highly recommend Dr. Lowe and her staff. Mary B.

I’ve been coming to Professional Eye Care Center for years. The staff has ALWAYS been extremely friendly and helpful. I get reminders for my yearly eye exam, which is great. And my glasses have never taken longer than 5 business days. (Maybe I’m just lucky.) They do offer many options when deciding on glasses, such as scratch resistant lenses, which is totally optional. If you politely decline, that’s it. No fuss. They don’t make you feel guilty about it. They’re doing their job. Giving you all your options. The only snag about this establishment is the wait time, but dad always says , “quality can’t be rushed.” Evelyn V.

Dr Lowe is the best! The office waiting area is comfortable, modern and very nice. The technical tools used in the exams are all modern and the latest technology. I trust Professional Eye Care with the care of my whole family. The eye glasses department is very comfortable with a friendly staff. I got my reading glasses quickly just as promised. Edward W.
