  • "I just had a very pleasant visit with Dr. Colling. All of the staff were very kind and sensitive to coronavirus issue. I love my Dr Colling. He is a wonderful doctor and I truly trust him with my eye problems. He has shown his expertise in his field regarding my eye problems and has been with me for years providing the necessary care that I need. Thank you Dr Colling and your staff."

  • "I have been looking for an eye doctor since I moved to Lynchburg. I never found one that was quite the right fit and felt like my small hometown optometrist...until now! I saw Dr. Haley at the Graves Mill Road location. He was thorough and actually showed me that the place that I had previously gone had over-corrected my vision and had me in the wrong prescription! Thank you, Harman Eye Center!"
