“First appointment with Dr. Hider. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. Best eye exam I have ever had — he explained so much more than any eye doctor has (and I am 65 wearing glasses since I was 6). Everything is clean, bright and efficient. All their equipment is up to date and state of the art. I was very pleased.”-SA 08/2019 (Facebook Review)

“Excellent experience. Very friendly staff. I was shocked at how much my doctor explained what she was looking for and why.

I don’t SEE myself going anywhere else!” -RG 08/2019 (Facebook Review)

“Primary Eye Care has been our eye care professionals for at least 15 years for our entire family. Outstanding front office staff, opticians, and the doctors’ expertise are sheer perfection! Their frame selections are beautiful and fashionable . Always. Their eye glass prescriptions are perfect each time. I personally have complicated eye issues, but they always advise, prescribe, and correct all of my vision concerns. Absolutely recommend Primary Eye Care! Both San Luis Obispo and Atascadero offices are wonderful in all respects!”-AW 07/2019 (Facebook Post)

“This is a well run and effective eye care center. Dr. Hider explains his observations as he examines you and describes what it means for your vision, future concerns, and strategies for keeping one’s vision optimal. The optician was helpful, patient, and knowledgeable. Overall, I recommend this group highly!” -JG 06/2019 (Facebook Review)

“Every single person in this office is absolutely amazing. From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, everyone is so helpful and nice. Dr. Hider is the nicest eye doctor I’ve ever seen, he’s so personable and explains everything so clearly. Coming from the private practice world, I admire how he runs his office and how profession his staff is.” – KA 03/2019 (Google Review)

“Great experience. I came here a while ago to get my lenses and frame and had a great experience than as well. This time I did an exam and it was excellent. We did a few different tests with some different machines and tools and then I was done. Dr was super nice and personable which I always like. As was the front desk lady. Inside is always super clean with lots of reading material in case you do not have your phone or forgot your own reading material. Waiting area is pretty big too which makes it comfortable. Parking lot is a good size. Some bigger tricks [sic] might have a hard time if the lot is almost full. With my Camry I went in with a two point and left with a two point turn. Right on 41 which is convenient. Great overall experience.” -ER 12/2018 (Yelp Review)

“My whole family of 5 all went to Dr. Hider. I can not say enough about him or his staff, they are all great, friendly and helpful. We did not realize the full level of greatness though until our second daughter got glasses. The entire staff treated her as one of their own, she knew everyone of them and they always treated her with enthusiasm and kindness. Dr.”Sage” as she called him, always had a way of talking to her that made her feel confident and in charge, and at 3, that was a big deal. When we moved from the area we once again realized how amazing this office truly was. We do not think that we will find service to match their’s again, they always went a step above and beyond.” -TR 07/2018 (Yelp Review)

“My daughter just started wearing glasses so she’s new to the process. The opticians were EXTREMELY helpful suggesting many options for her to try so she could find just the right ones! The ladies behind the desk go the extra mile to accommodate our entire family and the doctor presents information in a way that’s easy to understand.:)” – MBW 05/2018 (Google Review)

“After moving back to the SLO area I’m glad I decided to come back to primary Eyecare. The doctors are very patient and knowledgeable. I’ve been to a lot of Eyecare offices and this is by far the best. I especially love that they hire people who’ll help you pick out glasses. I’m terrible at doing it by myself and I feel like they genuinely care that I get a pair that works for me. They have a great selection of frames for kids too. I highly recommended everyone to come here.” – 3/2018

“Primary Eye Center has friendly and competent Receptionists, staff, and Optometrists, I am always greeted upon walking into the office immediately with a smile and I was taken back for my appointment on time. The eye doctor was very thorough, patient, and explains everything in detail to where the average person can understand. They also have a decent selection of glasses to choose from in many styles and price ranges. The ladies that help you with selecting glasses are extremely nice and helpful as well.

I called in after becoming more concerned about my sons headaches and they got him in the next day. The staff was great!! Not to mention Dr Hider was so wonderful. There was no wait, I didn’t even have time to finish my paperwork before we got called back. They made my 7 year old feel so comfortable. We were able to pick out some cool glasses and walk out spending under 100. I can’t say enough good things about our experience!” -VC 04/2016 (Yelp Review)

“I have been going to Primary Eye Center since 2003 and have always had a good experience. The office staff tries their best to schedule appointments that work with my schedule and assists in determining how much insurance covers and what the out of pocket cost would be. Dr. Hider is very thorough and is great at explaining his findings and what to keep an eye on in the future. I have recommended Primary Eye Care in the past and will continue to do so!” – OJ 6/2014
