Dr. Holmes is the most thorough doctor. She is always very patient and listens to any questions and answers honestly. She takes her time with the patient so that she can make sure to give the most accurate glasses rx and any health diagnoses that she finds. I recommend her to everyone.


Doctor Holmes and the staff are always wonderful and Professional.


Staff very helpful and knowledgeable


Helping me for years and well appreciated


Whole team very friendly and helpful.


I have been a patient of Dr Holmes for approx 10yrs. I’ve always felt confident in her as a Dr taking care of myself and the rest of my family. My daughter had an eye infection and she gave her drops for the infection and asked to check on her eye the next day when she asked for me to bring her in the next day so she could take a look at it to see if it was doing better I felt like she really cared. If you want to do well in your practice “caring” about your patient would be most important....in my opinion. I have only good things to say about Dr Holmes and would highly recommend to anyone.


Excellent care from Dr Holmes and Staff.


She is always professional with me


Dr Holmes is a very good doctor and she cares for her patients. I like her a lot.


Dr. Holmes is wonderful. I drive over an hour to see her because of my confidence in her.


Dr. Holmes is very professional and makes you feel at ease.


She was a little short with us about my daughter being color blind. Several tests had confirmed she had some color blindness and she said no.


Dr. Holmes is a fabulous doctor who takes the time to listen to issues/concerns that you may have. She explains everything in terms that you can understand. I have been going to her for at least 15 years and she has been continuously monitoring and keeping a close watch on an eye condition that I have. She is very knowledgeable and has a kind/gentle approach. I highly recommend her.


Dr. Holmes has been with this office for a long time and I am very glad she is still there! She has always been very professional yet friendly, and I am very confident in her.


I have been seeing Dr. Holmes for many years now and have always been happy with the experience.


Dr. Holmes was much friendlier this year. The last two years I did not feel connected. She was very clear this year with her opinions. I believe she is very competent and forthcoming. I have been her patient for many years and was happy to have her be her old self again.


Dr. Holmes was very friendly, courteous and professional.

Dr Holmes is thorough, she listens well and explains everything clearly!


I was so grateful to be seen in such a timely manner as I am not a patient here and am from out of town. Thank you


During eye exam, Dr wanted me to use hands shaped to check focusing. Dr shoved my arm down & said that I wasn't doing it right. I told her that I recently (August) had a right arm fracture & told her that was not a wise choice on her part. I'm currently in physical therapy for my arm & this didn't feel very good. Regardless, this isn't a professional thing to do to anyone! She put numbing drops in my eyes & didn't inform me. I drove myself to the appointment & it was dark when I left due to being the last appointment of the day. She asked me if I wanted to pick glasses out & I told her that it probably wasn't a good time to do since I couldn't wear my contacts per her instructions due to the drops. I went back for a recheck with the Dr & she was nice the second time.


I am very pleased with my visit...outstanding service with great listening skills! Thank you for getting it right!


She is great


I really like Dr. Holmes, and everyone was very nice


She was very friendly, caring and helpful. And she was very thorough and her check up

Dr. Holmes was amazing! I have been having issues with my current glasses and decided to try L.O. Eye Care for my new prescription. She was extremely thorough with my exam which I extremely appreciate! Not only that but she also discovered why I was having issues with my current pair of glasses!! I'm extremely happy with my experience and will continue have my eye exams done here. My eyes are very important to me as is my vision and it was nice for someone to care just as much about that as I do!


I really liked the Dr! she has a good bedside manner.
