I recently had my first, ever, eye exam at American Vision Center. Dr. Tallis prescribed progressive bifocal lenses for me. In only 3 days, I received a call that my glasses were ready for pickup. While I was thrilled at my improved vision, I was having some difficulty adjusting to the bifocal feature of my glasses. I made a follow up appointment to discuss my issues and to make sure there was nothing wrong with my glasses. At both visits, I had almost no wait. In fact, since I arrived 15 minutes early, as requested, my service started BEFORE my appointment time. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They answered all my questions and explained every step of the process as we went along and made sure that I knew what insurance covered and what my cost would be. Dr. Tallis was also very friendly and helpful. He explained each procedure and his assessment of my vision problems in detail and made sure that I understood all the information that I was receiving. He asked at least twice if I had any questions, gave me time to think, and answered any and all questions to my satisfaction. Despite the fact that I took up an appointment slot, Dr. Tallis did not even charge me for the follow up visit. I would highly recommend Dr. Tallis and the entire practice at American Vision Center to anyone looking for quality eye care.

My five-year-old daughter had a traumatic eye exam at a different optometrist. For some reason, the advanced technology was terrifying for her. We began to think we would have a Kindergarten dropout because she needed an eye exam to be eligible for school! Dr. Tallis put her right at ease, explaining each part of the exam. Not one tear. No unnecessary probing. I couldn't be more impressed and grateful.

Dr. Tallis and his staff worked with me until I was sure that I had the correct prescription and that my glasses were adjusted to fit properly. I appreciate their welcome smiles, attitude and dedication to customer service.

They were able to give me an appointment for the day after I called, and I was called back for the exam before it was even my time the day of the appointment. The office was clean, organized and comfortable. The staff was courteous, prompt, friendly and professional. The doctor was kind, knowledgeable and took time to listen to my questions and provide answers without making me feel rushed. I think it was possibly the best/most thorough eye exam I have ever had. While they don't have a ton of frames onsite, they do have a lot of variety as far as styles. I was able to find a nice frame well within my budget, which was great since this is not my "frame year" with VSP. The prescription is spot-on and I walked out wearing my new glasses and being able to see better than I have in quite some time. I give them 5 out of 5 stars
