Life changing experience once I realized I needed vision correction. As my vision without glasses or contacts has deteriorated, my glasses and contacts prescription has improved to where I see better than 20/20. Thank you Kennewick Vision Care!

Dr. Kintner is one of my favorite doctors. He is like talking with a friend. I followed him to his current location years ago back when was with Group Health just to keep seeing him as my eye doctor. Jen was also very personable and helpful during my last visit.
