  • "I’ve gone to Dr Tufte for 33 years and he has always been kind and thoughtful. Today he rechecked my prescription after some hiccups in new lenses and glasses - it was a smooth and quick process and he and his optician, Sarah, were more than accommodating. They helped fix my issues- even with glasses that didn’t come from their lab. I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail and patient care. Thank you!"
