Have been taking my mother to Dr. Punzal for 2 years now. He and his staff have gone above and beyond to aid in helping her keep her vision. My mother has double vision, plus other eye medical complications. They have worked countless hours to enable her to read, see TV, and use computer clearly once again. Would and have recommended Dr. Punzal to friends as the best eye doctor we were lucky enough to find.
