Outrageous wait time.

We waited 2 hours for a simple eye exam, and the facility wasn't even as busy as other reviews complained about Carolina Eye Center online. They told us we were "next" numerous times and that was clearly not the case. The service was fine, but a lot of people complaining about complications. Overall, very aggravating and time consuming. Not worth it at all, and probably won't be returning. Been to tons of places over the years and never waited so long.

We just redesigned! Do you like it?
