What People Are Saying About Emory Eyecare

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Ketchum is great! His knowledge and professionalism is beyond his years. He is caring and takes the time to explain things to you. Very impressive to have a professional of his caliber in such a small town as Emory. I will not go to anyone else."
    Dustin W.
  • "Emory Eyecare and Dr. Ketchum are about as fine as it gets. The staff, the equipment, the choice in frames are all exceptional. All of it is really so far beyond what you'd expect, it's hard to imagine going anywhere else now. Dr. Ketchum uses some seriously high tech equipment to give you a sense of the general health of your eye. He can even forecast what you may experience with your eyes in the future and how to go about avoiding or preventing those problems. The office is 30 minutes or so from where we live.....but having seen him a few times, we'd drive MUCH farther. He and his staff are that good."
    Ben M.
  • "Oh my goodness. This was the best I have ever been to. I came away 100 per cent Happy with everything thing. I do recommend them and will definitely go back as needed."
    Deborah J.
  • "I've been going to this eye doctor for two years now. I love all of the staff. Everyone is always so helpful. They are very affordable for people who don't have insurance."
