Our Patients Say It Best!

I had a piece of torn contact lens in my eye that was very painful. I called and quickly went to the Arkansas Valley vision care where they removed the contact lens and gave me good drops for my eye. The doctor was very professional and I was in and out in a short time. I would highly recommend their service
