Hawaii Vision Clinic Reviews

4 months ago
I will definitely recommend my friends and family to come to this optical office. I went into Eye Care Hawaii because I needed contacts as I was completely out and had been traveling throughout the US. The two front desk office employees assisted me with getting what I needed. I provided my prescription and was given the contacts I needed at a competitive price. Thank you Jess and Emma. I will definitely be coming back here, you folks were great!
