It’s almost too easy for us to say how much we love working with our doctors, or that we are the best in Tucson (maybe even beyond city limits). You don’t have to believe us. Take a look at what patients – past and present, have to say.

Our Doctors

“I am an optometrist and I took my son to Dr. Thomas. I really appreciate her integrative developmental approach to examining children. My son really benefited from her Body Book Program. There is no one quite like her!” – Amanda M. R.

“Dr. Thomas is unique in that she looks at the whole person when delivering vision care, which is especially important for developing children. My son loves going to his appointments with her. She is always looking at what is best for her patient and it is apparent that she is committed to bettering the lives of the patients she serves.” – Aiden R.

“I’ve already recommended others. Dr Amy is great. She was able to help my middle son years ago and helped the youngest yesterday. He was so excited to have hope!” – Jared C.

“The care that Dr. Thomas gave my daughter on the Visual Skills Exam was amazing and so sincere.”

– Molly O.

“Truly the best! Amazing customer service and Dr. AMY is wonderfully patient with children.” – Dena T.

“Seeing the initial results of my Visual Skills Assessment was absolutely fascinating because it allowed me to see what is actually going on with my vision. It gave me hope that my vision concerns can actually be fixed/greatly improved.” – Kimberly A.

“I am so thankful we found Arizona Vision Therapy Center. It has made a huge difference in my daughter’s life. Dr. Thomas and Shannon Kent make a fantastic team and are wonderful with my kids. I highly recommend them.” – Isabella L.

“Dr. Thomas helped both myself and my children. At my daughters first visit, Dr. Thomas was able to tell exactly what was happening with her eyes and her experiences. Being finally understood was so “amazing” for her. The staff are kind and friendly. This is an office of healing.” – Zachary H.

“Very approachable, patient staff and doctor – I have been to many states and almost 50 doctors at the highest level of specialty and Dr. Thomas has all the best knowledge and wisdom about that knowledge with the very best of the few doctors that really “got” vision with a whole lot more – a complete picture way beyond vision connecting everything going on with a patient. I felt respected, appreciated even, and hopeful for the first time in 40 years! If there was even a moment of confusion or complication even beyond her knowledge it was paused and looked up or figured out – complete care. 🙂 ” – Marie H.

“Dr. Thomas is AMAZING! The staff was helpful and professional and the whole experience was great! I have suffered for years with issues I could not get answers for and in 1 hour Dr. Thomas had given me my life back. My instincts were that it had everything to do with my eyes and every other doctor told me it wasn’t, but it was! Glasses and a referral for alignment and I have faith I will be on my way to getting my life back without dizziness, double vision and troubles driving. Thank you a million times Dr. Thomas, you are my HERO!!!” – Diane L.

“My daughter just loves Dr. Thomas she makes it so much fun while doing an amazing job at finding the correct prescription for her eyes. I learn something new about the role that eye exam and learning go hand in hand every time she has an appointment.” – Olivia O.

“We absolutely LOVE Dr. Thomas and her staff. She has been wonderful to not only myself as a patient but to four of my children. She is one of the most passionate human beings I have ever met. My kids actually love going to this doctor’s appointment! She listens to each child and to me as the parent and her enthusiasm to healing the brain and eyes and body systems is amazing.” – Andrew P.

“Service was excellent, quick and friendly and made me smile. Made the exam easy and fun.” – Jami C.

“Very positive and knowledgeable- willing to share all types of information to aid in healing.” – Tariq A.

“Dr. Thomas takes a holistic approach to vision and vision problems. She is relatable, approachable, and while her knowledge and intelligence is spectacular, she conveys that in layman’s terms so I and others can understand. I love watching her put the pieces together and feel completely cared for and paid attention to. She is very thorough and medically and ethically responsible. Superb care!!” – Tammie H.

“I will gladly complete this survey and recommend anyone to Dr. Thomas who may have a nervous system issue. Between the age of 10-20ish, I knew something was different with my reading comprehension but couldn’t figure it out. Every adult I tried to explain my situation to could not figure it out. Therefore I felt like I was not smart enough. For twenty years I have been seeking a complete answer as to why my comprehension and overall vision has been deteriorating. Although I have a way to go to improve my health, I left your office with not only an answer but a feeling that I was confident my vision is going to get better.” – Lynea D.

“Dr. Thomas was very thorough and friendly. Explains my son’s challenges.” – Nicholas W.

“I feel Blessed that I found Dr. Thomas. Never have I been with any Doctor who works to correct vision problems until meeting her. She’s amazing!” – Linda R.

“Way more than a typical eye exam. I highly recommend Arizona Vision Therapy Center to anyone that may be second guessing a prescription or might be seeking to visit with someone who goes above and beyond the normal 5 minute eye exam.” – Jeffery A.

“The doctor and staff were really great and friendly.” – Abrianna D.

“Very friendly atmosphere and Dr. T seems very thorough and explains everything to her patients.”

– Dorothy L.

“Can’t say enough about Dr. Thomas, she is a hoot but knows her stuff. I left the office knowing I could depend on Dr. Thomas for any eye problems.” – Theresa B.

“Very professional and enjoyed talking to her.” – Claudette L.

“I very much enjoyed my initial visit with Dr. Thomas. She immediately put me at ease and answered all of my questions. She was very thorough in the exam and addressed my concerns. I will be bringing my family to her clinic as well.” – Denice S.

“Knowledgeable, energetic, compassionate, and always looking for the cutting edge treatments to help her patients!” – Karin B.

“I love the eye rehab Dr Amy Thomas’s office offers. She has an ever expanding understanding with how to aid rehabilitation. Also, Rick the glasses adjustment fellow is very helpful.” – Leslie F.

“My 8 year old son loved the staff and the doctor. The doctor is very thorough and uses up to date technology to evaluate and screen.” – Adonis H.

“Amy Thomas is a real find if you have a visual challenge. She works with the brain to change the way we perceive. Her manner, her humor and upbeat attitude are a breath of fresh air.” – Pamela T.

“So many things make sense now that I’ve had my eyes checked here. I had no idea a car accident I was in had affected my vision and have seen many docs in the past few years with no success at vision. THANKS SO MUCH!” – Hannah G.

“Our experience was over the top. My daughter got a full exam, and we got a full explanation of what is going on with her and her vision. Dr. Thomas was full of energy and really made my daughter comfortable!” – Kenadie H.

“I was pleased with the service. I had minimal wait, and Dr. Thomas zipped through the eye exam without compromising service! I was in and out.” – Debbie M.

“We came in for a 2nd opinion after an impersonal, negative experience at an ophthalmologist in town. I’m so glad that we did. Our 2 year old was happy to be in the office the moment we walked in. She had a great time during her exam and I’m very happy that our diagnosis no longer requires surgery (as recommended after 2 minutes with our other doctor).” – Eleanor P.

Our Services

 “I took my son to Dr. Thomas when he was 8 years old. He could not catch a ball. After months of Vision Therapy, after he turned 9, he said to me one day, ‘Mom, thank you for taking me to vision therapy. Now I can see the whole world in 3-D!’” – Sue R. H.

“Dr. Thomas and her staff work well with children and adults alike in a clean and friendly environment to help bring healing instead of putting a bandage on a wound. My 9 year old daughter has struggled with sleep, digestion, and attention issues for years and has had previous diagnosis of ADD, ADHD, and high functioning Autism Spectrum. Yet, with vision therapy from Dr. Thomas and her staff, my daughter’s anxiety is beginning to melt away and her digestion is improving. We are so very thankful to finally find a root cause and move forward in healing.” – Elizabeth H.

They are Top Notch!” – Michele H.
