Dr Welder and the staff at Prairie Vision Did a great job in the testing of my eyes and picking out my new glasses. I would recommend them to anyone looking for new glasses.

              I was a new patient and was treated wonderfully!!! The entire staff was super friendly and helpful. I was a little nervous as to what to expect but everything went very smoothly. Even getting my eyes dilated was a much more pleasant experience than I have had at other eye doctors. I also very much enjoyed the fact that I had a physical person to help me pick out a new pair of glasses!!! Overall I had a very awesome experience and I'll will be recommending to friends and family!!

              The friendliness and professionalism I have no comparison for. The office is clean and quaint and the equipment state of the art..they go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and educated. I couldn't give a higher recommendation for your eye care!
