1. The most comprehensive eye exam 👓 I have ever received on island, or elsewhere for that matter!! And because of that, an early diagnosis was had, with IMMEDIATE treatment commenced. ❤️ On-time appointment even at 2:30 pm in the afternoon. All of the staff goes above and beyond to help—Although the office was full, I felt like I was the only patient, as so many Eye-care Technicians catered to my every question and need. I am now a loyal patient. Mahalo nui loa, Eye Care Hawai’i. Saundra Renz Pahoa
