Patient Reviews


“I have “eye phobia” (not sure if that is real but it is what I call it) and this place is great and patient. The staff is extremely polite and professional. Every step is well thought and explained to the patient. I was able to get a thorough evaluation, be heard of my concerns, my wants, and left in good spirits.” –Kane

“I was referred by my sister, who had nothing but wonderful things to say about your office. Eye appts have always been stressful and frustrating for me because of my complicated high maintenance eyes. Today may have been the best visit I have had in years. The staff was incredibly welcoming, kind and informative. The experience with the doctor was second to none as he fully explained what to expect and treatment plan options. The office is state of the art and the experience was great. I’ve already recommended your office to others. Thank you for serving me with such a welcoming and kind spirit. See you again soon.” –Melissa

“I had a great experience with Dr. Gdowski. She gave me the most thorough eye exam I’ve ever had and I got my first new pair of glasses in 10+ years. Dr. Gdowski and my optician Tiffany talked to me about the importance of blocking harmful blue light and protecting my eyes after long days on a computer. They put me in an Eyezen lens and my eyes have never felt better!” –Adam

“Everyone there is very professional. I saw Dr Allen Smith and I think that I got a much better prescription for my lenses than I had previously from a different office. He took time with my exam to make sure that everything was correct. Since my husband did not come with me, I was glad that the office staff took time with me to find frames that worked well. They were very helpful. I have been happy for the last 2 years with the glasses I purchased there.” –Deborah

“Dr. Smith is Friendly and funny. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful !!! I wont’ go anywhere else for my eye care and glasses. I love their honest opinion on what frames looks good on me.” –Diane

“I was having trouble with my vision being strained from overuse at work. Dr. Gdowski took the extra time needed to identify the problem, and find a solution that worked best for me. My new computer glasses have completely solved my eye strain, and I couldn’t be happier! My Optician, Tiffany, was extremely knowledgeable about the types of lenses, their strengths and weaknesses, and the frames that Lifetime Eyecare offers. She had me not only seeing correctly, but looking great too!” –Branden

“Five Stars all the way around! The entire staff are personable, knowledgeable professionals who always greet me with a smile and treat me like I’m their best customer. The congenial atmosphere in this office puts fun into a medical procedure. Their professional work gives me ultimate confidence that with Dr Smith and staff my eyes are in good hands!” –Will

“I haven’t been to this office since my last eye exam as a kid over a decade ago; but I’m SO glad I came back to this office (even though my original eye doc retired)! The staff is very friendly, and I was VERY impressed with Dr. Smith. He is incredibly great at what he does while also takes an interest in who you are as a person; you can tell he’s into forming relationships with patients and I think that’s important. Will definitely return to this office in the future!” –Leah 

“I’ve been a patient at Lifetime Eyecare for the past 19 years. The staff is amazing, and I consistently receive the highest quality of care from the physicians and staff. My son had one visit here and they are absolutely wonderful with children! Everyone takes the time to explain things well and consider all factors in my care very carefully. I highly recommend this practice!” –Tammi

“The best vision care facility I’ve ever been to. Dr. Smith and his staff are simply amazing. Professional. Caring. Kind. Costs are fair and the skill of diagnosis and explaining what choices you can make are clear and concise. The atmosphere of this clinic is also top notch with people who work as a unit to respect your time, pocketbook, and convenience. I will never use another facility or doctor than Dr. Smith.” –Wayne
