Great staff. Friendly and helpful receptionist. The doctor is not just there and see you off.He encourages questions and concerns. They saw me on such short notice and made sure I picked up and tried on my contacts before the doc left on vacation, near closing hours which was very nice of them. The technology used for my eye exam looked new and everything was very sanitary and well organized. Will be looking forward to having my future exams here.
Ridgeview optometry has always been a pleasant place to get your eyes checked. Dr. Buchanan is very knowledgeable and keeps up on the latest technology in eye care. I have confidence my glasses will be correctly fitted.
My wife and I are new to Colorado and we wanted to have an Eye Doctor close to home. We went in for our checkups and I must say that the service was OUTSTANDING. Dr. Buchanan was not only detailed in his exam, but he took time to explain what he was doing. I can’t see us going anywhere else for our Optometry needs.
Our first visit to Ridgeview Optometry. What a beautiful office with glass walls and very clean waiting area. Unfortunately my little girl had broken her glasses beyond repair. She was upset and felt embarrassed walking in. I was thinking could a new pair arrive in time. The receptionist was very hospitable and made me smile. They were upbeat and brought out many boxes of glasses to choose from. Which my little girl really enjoyed. Being on medicade this type of luxuary is un heard of. My once sad little girl left dialated, but not from the drops. From the memories of a fun new eye doctor experience. With kids Amblyopia eye patches as a gift from the knowledgeable doctor. My child felt impowered diferently-able vs disabled. A speedy arrival date for new glasses. She went on in the car about the colors of glasses and letters she could finally see again. Most of all my Liliana came home happy. A wonder of the Springs to find such a helpful place. Thank You!
Absolutely a Great Optometrist! Couldn’t ask for a better doctor to whom I trust my vision! Always available and easy to understand.
Seeing the color photos of the back of my eyes was fascinating! I felt like I was peering into God’s workshop. Very nice to have a complete examination without the hassle of dilation, too.
We were very pleased with both the office staff and the doctor. They made us feel very much at home. We liked the fact that Dr. Buchanan explained everything he was doing. We also like the fact that he is conservative about treatment and gave us the option of having surgery for cataracts now or watching it for 6 months to see how it develops. We opted to wait and see. We highly recommend Ridgeview Optometry.
