  • "Great People! Leighton and Mary are some of the nicest people I have ever met! As the other reviewer mentioned, they treat you like family. I could not even think of going to see anyone else to look at my eyes. My family found Dr. Shores when we needed vision therapy for my son, he was the most pafient and kindest person when it came to working with my son. I admire Dr. Shores for his unbelievable intelligence and understanding of visual processing.If you need something as extensive as vision therapy or just a simple eye exam, this is the place to go."
