"Dr. Hester is the BEST optometrist that I've ever had! She clearly enjoys engaging with each patient and takes a personal interest in helping them obtain the best vision possible. My vision improved by at least 2 lines on the chart after her refraction for new contact lenses. I'll definitely be back! Thanks very much, Dr. Hester!!" -- Jim W
