Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

    Arvada Vision & Eye Clinic has been an incredible experience. The staff is friendly, courteous, and makes sure you are taken care of. I specifically want to highlight how great the glasses/sunglasses selection staff has been. You know who you are (Susie)! Best experience I've ever had with an eye clinic. 5 stars!
    Luke B.
    Our family of 6 has been going to this fine clinic for 20 + years. Kind and efficient doctors and staff. I always enjoy choosing new frames with the trendsetters downstairs. I think it must be very difficult for eye doctors to keep on time, with the many patients coming in with different needs- for eye dialation and different treatments that no doubt put their schedules at risk. We drive 1 hr 10 minutes to receive eye care here, and always will.
    Suzzane K.
    I have been taking my family here for almost 20 years. Dr. Cross and Dr. Bashford always give the best advice and the technicians are so helpful. Highly recommend this office!
