              My entire family have been patients of Dr. Prate’s for so many years I can’t even remember how far back we began. We now see the 2nd generation of Prate’s! We totally trust them with our eye care. They are thorough and always make sure you are happy with your glasses. They have a decent selection and accept insurances. They have convenient hours and the girls in the office are very friendly and helpful.

              I have been coming to Prate family eye care for over 15 years. The professionalism, and friendliness of the staff keeps me coming back. They have a great selection of glasses. Recently I purchased new glasses with the help of Steph! Steph always goes out of her way to help me, and make my visit a special one. I appreciate her so much!! Thank you to Dr Prate for always making me comfortable and helping me find the best fitting contacts as well. I always recommend them to my family and friends!

              Very Friendly Staff!! They took care of my 82 year old mother with kindness and patience. The doctor explained everything in detail where me and my mom understood perfectly. Great selections of frames for my mom. So happy I found a place for my mother to get her eyes checked where she feels very comfortable and happy. Keep up the great work!!!
