Customer Testimonials


I have been going to Dr. Canting for many, many years and there is no one better. Dr. Canting and his staff are friendly, professional and super attentive. If you're looking for a great optometrist, I highly recommend Canting Optometry for your eye health, glasses and contacts.



Excellent is the perfect word for Dr. Canting and his team! They are excellent care providers with excellent customer service and a pleasant office atmosphere. I have been going here for a decade (even when I have lived out of state) because I wouldn't have it any other way. Honestly, I rarely, if ever write reviews, but I rely heavily upon them when in need of a new provider, service, trip, etc. Therefore, I thought I'd chime in case this helps anyone else. I reiterate that you cannot go wrong with this practice. Good luck and have a great day!



Excellent optometrist, excellent staff, great location and beautiful office! They are efficient, accommodating, professional, and provide excellent patient care...I highly recommend them!



A great visit, no pressure to sell you glasses contacts etc and a very thorough eye exam. Very knowledgeable, professional and efficient.
