Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "The team at this particular Visionworks was extraordinarily helpful and friendly. From Dr. Mangers eye care to the young lady that pre-checked me in and checked me out after they had closed already. Even the employees that were taking care of others found time to make sure I was being helped. Great business and employees all the way around. I will continue to go to this establishment for my eye care needs."
  • "Dr. Johnson is as thorough as it gets, and takes the time to explain every aspect of your eye health. Shane is the only eye doctor my wife and I will go to. The staff are always extremely friendly and willing to answer any questions you have. Great Place to go for all of your vision needs."
  • "Our entire family go to this visionworks. The staff were very friendly. My children are 5 and 6. They were able to get us in one after the other. This was the children’s first eye exam, so they were a little bit scared but the staff and Dr. Lauren Sowash were amazing. She made my children feel comfortable and was very patient with them. She worked with them trying her best to get the right prescription. She informed me of the treatment plan with the glasses and answered my concerns, and explained the importance of having the children wear their glasses as much as possible so their eyes can correct themselves overtime, hopefully."
  • "I love coming here! Always a welcoming environment!! The Dr. Hugdahl and Catalina were both friendly and helpful!! They met my needs and ensured I was a happy customer! Catalina also made sure I was updated on all the new special offers! Thanks to both of these ladies I will be back and will continue to utilize my insurance at this location! :)"
  • "Dr. Huff is awesome! She is so sweet and knowledgable. I will recommend this location to everyone I know! The appointment was quick and she switched me to different contacts, I never knew they could be so comfortable! I have been going to a different eye doctor for about 5 years. My insurance changed so I had no choice but to switch. Now I will be bringing my family here!"
  • "Dr. Cross and the whole staff were wonderful. My appointment was timely. All my options were explained to me and I didn’t feel pressured to purchase anything more than what fit my needs.I had a great experience."
  • "The best experience I've had in a long time, the staff was welcoming and Dr. Cranmer was the most professional and on point person I've met. Highly recommended ."
  • "I was absolutely blown away with the service of the staff! They were busy but polite. And the manager was a great multi tasker!! Everyone who helped me was amazing. From the front staff, to the person who did my pretest, to the doctor who made me laugh. I was nervous to go because I had a bad experience with my prior eye doc, and after this I am so happy I decided to use my benefits and will definitely be back to see Kayla and everyone else. I’m happy with my frames, and they were clear and honest about what I needed and didn’t need and I ended up getting 2 pairs for a great price. I just can’t say enough! Thank you guys!"
  • "Nicole is the manager on duty and she is simply awesome! We felt at home the second we walked in the door. Nicole took care of everything for us. Dr. Rege was fabulous, probably the best eye exam I have had in 30 years. He's so patient to be sure you are seeing excellent. I recommend this location on about 92nd and Sheridan. Nicole, thank you for the connection we made and talking about something very dear to both of us"
  • "The staff and optometrist, Dr. Megan Kirchner were very friendly. Dr. Kirchner took the time to educate me on my eye health. Jason the Optician took the time to help me pick out frames and was very detailed when he informed me of all of the different lens options available to me. He also took the time to give me quotes on different frame & lens selections available to me to help me get the best deal. I had an overall great experience at Visionworks. They were also able to get me seen for a last minute appt. that I called in and scheduled that day. I highly recommend the Northern Colorado Springs location."
  • "I've been going here since I was an early teen and I'm now about to be 22; these guys are awesome in what they do. Always super friendly and kind, willing to help where you need and offer assistance. Staff is always welcoming and work hard to get everything done quickly but effectively; they're not afraid to wait for you to choose and let you take your time. 11/10 recommend. Their glasses are always super cute too and they'll help you if you're not sure which to get. The glasses always come in super fast too and they help with it for free when they need little repairs or cleaning."
  • "Friendliest staff ever!!! Very efficient & so well trained & knowledgeable! And Dr. Liles is so awesome! She is very good ... explained everything she was doing & then explained the results until I understood. Very patient. Wait time was minimal. Why would anyone go anywhere else?!!!"
  • "Dr. Mara Walsh is the reason we go to the Visionworks in the Flatirons Mall even though we have a Visionworks closer to where we live. She has a gentle manner about her that puts you at ease. I feel like I am in good hands with her."
  • "My daughter and I went in for an exam and glasses. What I was most impressed with initially was the large inventory of frames there were to choose from. Dr. Daw did our exams and he was very thorough and informative, he even took the time to explain everything to my teenage daughter. After the exam the staff was amazing and helped us pick out great frames that stayed within my budget. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a low stress experience getting a great pair of glasses at a fair price!"
  • "I have gone to Ft. Collins Visionworks for over a decade, my folks moved here 3yrs ago and also are patients. Dr. Hirata is by far the best optometrist I have ever gone to. My Mom had a stroke 5 yrs ago and it affected her sight. Dr. Hirata was very patient with her and went slow so she could process each lens change until it was just right. Thank you Dr. Hirata, you rock!!"
  • "I've been taking my family here for more than 2 years. Dr Knudson and Dr. Hirata are very professional, kind and have helped me and my family. I would recommend this place for your vision care. The staff is knowledgeable on frames and helpful, the place is clean. Sometimes there is a wait, I call in to make my appointments, goes much faster, but it’s worth the wait. They treat you with respect, and honesty. My favorite Visionworks. I have a family of six."
  • "I cannot say enough good things about the crew at this VisionWorks. The doctors, the techs, everybody...the customer service and attention to detail has been outstanding. I personally apparently have difficult vision to properly correct and they have been so helpful in finding the right fit for glasses and contacts. While we are still working on getting things set with my contacts, I have complete faith they will find the right solution. And...I can honestly say that no other eye doctor/company has put forth this type of effort. Kudos to the entire staff!!!"
  • "I was most impressed that after my exam nobody tried to sell me anything 🙏🏻 I actually had to ask to be solicited a pair of glasses. This shows me that the staff is not solely focused on a sale but the care and vision of the customer. No vultures at this location! What a breath of fresh air! Each staff member was kind and helpful!"
  • "Everyone, from the minute we contacted Visionworks was kind, courteous, and helpful. The doctor took extra time to make sure that I have the correct prescription, and invited me to contact him if I had further concerns or questions. I was pleased with my first visit. I have yet to receive my glasses, so I cannot comment on follow-up visits or satisfaction concerning frames and lenses."
  • "Dr. Sowash is friendly, helpful, Competent. Would recommend him to others."
  • "The most polite, friendly, helpful staff that I have ever encountered. Dr. Kirstin H. Was the best eye doctor ever!"
  • "Dr. Mangers is an old school patient care focused doctor! She makes you feel like you are the only patient in the world and takes her time to cover all the aspects of your care needs."
  • "Dr. Sowash was very friendly and efficient. I had a very pleasant experience!"
  • "Parker and Heather were especially impressive. I really felt like I was being listened to and supported. Would highly recommend friends to do business with Visionworks."
  • "Dr. Huff is awesome! My whole family comes to see her as well as my friends and neighbors! We love her!"
  • "Dr. Codner adjusted my contact lenses so that I can read piano music without using reading glasses and without compromising too much my distance vision."
  • "My husband & I were highly impressed with our experience from the moment we scheduled our exams online, clear through the process of being seen. Nothing we’d complain about, & we’ve already recommended you to others. Thanks for a great experience!"
  • "I was happy with the service at Vision Works and Doctor too. I have an understanding of professionalism in the optics world. Many years ago I was a Optical Tech in Wholesale and Retail. So I know the field but as years go by things change to some degree. I always tell me friends to go to Vision Works and brag about the company whenever they say they need new Specs. The best quality Lenses are there. I know, BELIEVE ME! Thanks Bill"
  • "I appreciate Dr. Thomas. He set the mood for my exam and set the tone for the day. He was funny. And kind. He was also concerned about me. I appreciate his professional approach. Shot to the staff. Good job as well. They didn't keep me waiting long."
  • "Great Service and Awesome Customer Service!"
  • "We LOVE the eye doctor, Shane Johnson…. He is friendly, caring, and makes my kids feel very comfortable & involved in their eye health/care."
