Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Absolutely the best Optometrist in town!!! They are very prompt and get you in at your appointment time . Dr. Street has a wonderful personality and was amazing with my autistic son . He was so nervous about having his eyes checked and when we left he was so excited about his glasses that he couldn't wait to get them!! I've been going to another practice for 25 years and always dreaded going to the eye doctor. I'm so happy to have found this practice so that I don't have to dread it anymore. I can't say enough good things about this place!!!"

  • "I arrived here having come from a bad experience a year ago at another Shelby business. I found the office to be pleasant and quiet, the staff to be engaged and warm, the pricing to be quick and reasonable, and the doctor to be efficient and thorough. I can only recommend - highly - that you consider Cleveland Eyecare if you need an eye exam in Shelby. I will be back."
