I have been with Dr. Richardson since his association with Sterling Optical in West Farms Mall. When he moved, I moved with him. I would not consider anyone else to care for my eyes.

"One of the finest eye doctors in Farmington,CT
"Well, my name's Waseem Kazi and these days I'm going to the Progressive Eye care at Farmington. My eye doctor there is Dr. Victor A. Richardson and he is the best and talented eye doctors I'm referring to. I will highly recommend anyone who is looking for a good eye doctor then they should look for Dr. Richardson's and have their eyes examined with him. I will definitely give 5/5 stars to Dr. Richardson because the quality of service he provided to me as a patient during my recent visit is remarkable. Also, the staff at 'PEC' is courteous and treats you very well which I have really seen in other health care departments.
