  • "I am a new patient to your company. I was prescribed Sclera contacts. It was my first time wearing this type of lenses and they worked great. However, getting them in my eyes was very tricky. June Tepavich was instrumental in training me how to insert, remove and clean these lenses. June was so professional and patient with me as I tried again and again to get them in my eyes. She has a warm and humorous personality which went a long way to lessen my frustration when I struggled to get them in. It was a pleasure working with her and I appreciate all she's done! I also have had an exceptionally wonderful experience with Dr. Birva Shah. She is simply amazing. I've had some fairly serious long term eyesight issues. Every doctor I went to could only make minor improvements. Dr. Birva Shah did an outstanding job diagnosing my issues and prescribing a solution. My vision is the best it's ever been! I want to thank Dr. Shah for her professionalism, attention to detail and cheerful disposition. She is awesome!
    Sincerely, "

  • "I truly understand the issues with my mom's eye and who knows what can happen when a 85 year old woman goes into surgery. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. My mother Jenny H. is still upbeat, positive and very thankful for everything you have done for her. Our family has appreciated the allotment for the taxi rides. It is just enough to allow her some independence and my mother feels much better because of your gift.

    Dr. Ticho, you did not have to do this, you definitely went "above and beyond" what was expected.

    You are a mighty man."

    Billy Hois
