Choosing Your Optometrist

Whether you're new in town or your old optometrist moved away, eventually you'll have to find a new optometrist. Choosing an eye doctor isn't very difficult, but it's not a breeze, either, as you want to be sure you're entrusting your site to someone who knows what she's doing. In the Mesa and Scottsdale, AZ, region, Riviera Opticare is the place to go to get great eye care.

What to Look for as You Search for a New Eye Doctor

If you know people in town, you can always ask them for names, but that's only one step. It's important to be sure you understand what type of doctor-patient relationship works for you, too. For example, you may want someone who likes to approach sustaining eye health with an emphasis on good nutrition. You may want to see someone who likes patients who research their eye symptoms before the appointment, or you may prefer an eye doctor who simply tells you what to do.

We have trained opticians to guide you on the more precise fitting of your eyewear better than could be achieved with online ordering.

  • My Internal Medicine Doctor recommended Dr. Susan Reckell for my eye care. After a very extensive first eye exam with the doctor, I spent time with the eye care specialist who did not rush me and helped me choose a great pair of glasses within my budget. Highly recommend.
