I needed an eye exam as I had not had one for some years, and recently noticed an issue with my vision. It was easy to request an appointment online for the same day and was called shortly after to confirm the appointment. Though it was no longer available they had one the next day. The actual visit was pleasant, with friendly and attentive staff. It was mid afternoon and the store was quiet and did not have any other clients waiting. After the usual checks and tests for any underlying issues, the Dr. asked me to explain again what brought me in, and knew tight away it would be best to see an ophthalmologist ASAP but agreed to still do a regular exam while I was there. I received a referral and they will keep my new prescription on file if needed. No pressure to purchase frames or any lack of professionalism even though my insurance had no copay for me to pay at the visit. I also learned I have an astigmatism, which apparently I've had for some time, but the chain opticians I went to for years (and which don't take my insurance) never bothered to tell me. I will be back.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I hadn't visited an eye doctor EVER in my adult life and was long overdue a routine eye exam. I'm super pleased with the entire staff and lovely Optometrist who made me feel so welcome. Their high level of expertise, patience, and friendly vibes is top notch. Elated that my experience was seamless and quick!

I needed some lenses replaced on an old pair of sunglasses I have so stopped in (I live down the block) to see if they could help. I had the lenses already. As soon as I walked in, I was promptly greeted and helped. I was warned that the replacement might not work but that they would be happy to try if I assumed the risk. I agreed, and about 30 seconds later I’m handed my fixed glasses and am told there was no charge. I’ve been living in the neighborhood for over 11 years and wanted to write this review because I really felt like it was a small town shop who cared for and appreciated each customer. I also felt that the employees there really love what they do. Thank you, and if and when I need glasses I would happily give more business to them.

The eye doctor was excellent at explaining the vision and sight in each eye, and was very nice. Selecting glasses was also a good experience.

Dr. Irina Stoica is so attentive and informative it is impossible not to immediately feel comfortable with her. The gentlemen who helped me choose my frames and which lense options worked best for my needs and budget were so kind, helpful, and funny. Honestly the best and most FUN experience I have ever had getting new glasses. Highly recommend!
