“The best in the area! Great staff, who is always willing to go above and beyond for every patient. Kennedy and Perkins carries many lines and offers a wide range of lenses. Every time I visit, I am always well taken care of and the DR. is very thorough.”

“They’re so attentive and patient! My initial exam was so quick and my optician made sure to explain everything I may have had questions about. My glasses even took less than a week to be ready, which compared to my previous place was no time at all. 5 stars all around!”
