I have very dry eyes that were often red and hurt. I was referred to Dr. Mayes for a treatment called Lipiflow. I am so pleased with the results. No more redness and no hurting, even by the end of the day! Dr. Mayes has been fabulous. All the staff are caring and professional. I would encourage anyone to go to this clinic for any eye problems.View On Google
