Dr. Riddle is good, but we use Dr. Obermark in Pop Bluff because our daughter has had several eye surgeries and Dr. Riddle doesn't really do that sort of stuff. However, he is good with kids and all ages. His staff is wonderful and very helpful even if you use another dr.

Dr. Coburn is good. He's out on One Mile Road. I would stay as far away from Marion Eye Center as possible.

Oh definately Stay Away from Marion Eye Center!!!! We had dealings with them in Marion, Il. Our daughter has had alot of eye troubles. She started out at 4 months of age with her first surgery, which was a membranectomy. Our pediatrician called and made an emergency appointment because he thought it was a fast growing tumor. When we got there, they wanted to remove her eye. They told us that we needed to get a second opinion, but the eye dr. got mad when we did so. To make a long story short, she did need surgery, but it was only to clip a small piece of skin(membrane) from her eye.~ Not to blind her for life and remove her eye! There never was a tumor!
We were referred to the Children's Hospital for this surgery and for other surgeries she has had to have and they are great up there.
We are using Dr. Obermark in Pop Bluff, who is alittle more experienced with the surgeries, if needed, but we will go back to Children's if surgery is needed again.
Good luck in finding an eye dr.!

Dr. Riddle is one of the best. Takes his time with the examination and ensures you will get the proper prescription for the best eyesight you can have.

Also, Dr. Riddle is not an eyeglass salesman as are many optometrists. He is the first optometrist I ever had examine me that told me I did not need a new prescription. Go to Marion Eye Center or some place like that and see if they ever tell you that you donít need new glasses. They will sell you new glasses whether you need them or not.

I think Dr. Riddle is over-priced. He's a lot more expensive than Dr. Coburn and I think Dr. Coburn does just as well of an exam.

I believe Dr. Melton is very good. He was honest and said my daughter didn't need a new prescription. I like that he is not trying to make money off of me. He also told me he would give me samples of my contacts if I didn't want to order any right then. He's very soft-spoken, scans the eye for tumors, and takes his time figuring out what you need the most. I would recommed him to anyone, not just for children.

That's the truth. I had Pearl Vision put my middle daughter in glasses and later that month I had to take her in to get her glasses fixed and found out she had 220/20 vision. There are eye doctors and then there are salesmen just there to sell you stuff. Its always good to be aware and ask questions when you make an appointment. When they start spouting off about their specials, you know they are there for the sales only.

i went to Marion Eye Center in poplar bluff and they sent me to the one in Carbondale. The doctor there told me that i needed to have left eye removed because i have been blind in it for 28 yrs. a long story short, i didn't need my eye removed. i think it was just their way of getting more money because my insurance wouldn't pay for all of it. i was still going to have pay about 3 grand.

Dr. Melton is very good, actually takes his time and listens to what the patient has to say instead of getting in a rush to get you in and out of the office. I would recommend him to anyone.
