I went today to have eye exam as it has been 2.5 yrs.. i highly recommend SCO as i did when i went back in 2014. they are all very nice on the phone and / or in person. You couldnt ask 4 better cust serv by any of them including the students. The guard also was very nice and he directs ppl if they dont know where 2 go. I am glad that i found an eye care place i could go 2 that i trust 100%.

Nice staff and very responsive to your issues, but remember it is a college. If they see something slightly out of the ordinary you may have to wait for a few second opinions and an experienced doctor to make time to come take a look. As long as you know that going in, it's great.
