Great optometry office in a perfect location. I’ve had a number of interactions with Sherri. She is super sweet and very helpful. I love Dr Clark! He is very knowledgeable, professional and kind. There are a generous selection of designer and reasonably priced frames. I definitely recommend Carmel Eyecare.
