  • "I was having headaches and felt my contacts were easily drying out all the time. I went in to see Dr. Wight and after an evaluation, he suggested a switch in the type of lenses I use. Within a week of using the new lenses, I noticed a change and haven’t had any problems since. Thanks, Dr. Wight!"

  • ""We use Donald Wight OD for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Wight will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else.""
