Hometown Doctors still exist.


As a new patient, I got an appointment the day I called with a serious concern. Dr. Velting took all the time I needed to explain my issue and answer my questions, even used follow-up phone calls. Hometown Doctors still exist. Best of all, I have my 2020 vision back!

Great small business.


I've been going to Vintage Optical for over a decade. Dr. Sommer is a true professional with a quiet demeanour. He listens to what you say and answers questions in a clear way. He also takes time to give back to the community. Sue, the office manager, also fits your glasses with a very pleasant personality that puts you at ease and let's you know she enjoys what she is doing. Great small business.
