Vision Corner is an optometric practice in the Houston area that has been in business for more than 29 years. In an interview with Dr. Sophia Barnes, O.D., we learn more about what the clinic provides to its patients, and how the services that they provide truly stand out from your standard eye clinic.
Hello Dr. Barnes, and thank you for talking with us today about Vision Corner. Your eye clinic has been in business for 29 years, which is obviously a very long time. What services does your clinic provide?
Vision Corner is a full-service optometric practice in the Galleria area and Uptown Park neighborhoods of Houston, run by primary care physicians. Our optometrists provide comprehensive eye exams, a supreme selection of eyeglasses, hard to fit contact lenses, and treatment of eye diseases and infections. We are also pediatric and glaucoma specialists.
Those are very valuable services, but what was the impetus to start providing them? There is certainly no shortage of eye clinics in Houston.
Vision Corner was started to provide patients with a very high standard of quality eye care services, in a genuinely caring environment, all while exceeding the patient’s expectations. At the time I felt there was a need for our specialty services. I wanted to offer patients an alternative that focused more on the best interests for their family’s quality of sight over the coming years.
Is there anything that sets Vision Corner apart from the rest?
We felt that all too often, when a patient visits their optometrist, the time they spend there is too rushed, which means they feel under-valued as a customer and their treatment less caring. At Vision Corner we decided to see patients on a 30 minute schedule, as opposed to most other eye doctor practices that see patients on a 15 minute schedule.
That’s an interesting choice. Have you noticed if that change has had any affect on customer satisfaction?
Our patients notice the difference. People really value the TLC they experience as soon as they walk through the door and receive that warm and friendly greeting from our staff. We work very hard to treat each patient while constantly trying to exceed their expectations.
Vision Corner is located in Houston, TX on 5000 Westheimer Rd., Ste 590. Learn more about their services at www.visioncorner.com or by calling 713-623-2000.
