"we've used this provider for over 10 years and are extremely satisfied. The staff is fantastic, the doctor is very professional and we could not be happier" with the service they have provided to our family.

"Superb experience. Very pleasant and welcoming office environment. Not rushed. The doctor took plenty of time to explain everything clearly. Excellent office staff--helpful" and friendly. The exam was thorough. I was very pleased with my new prescription for eyeglasses. I got one new pair of eyeglasses there as well as a couple additional sets of new lenses for glasses I already owned. They notified me promptly when everything arrived. Truly the best optometry practice I have ever visited. I plan to go there every year from now on. Really nice, competent, and dedicated people to work with.

Optometry

Optometry relates to eye and vision defects. You should receive regular eye exams from a licensed eye doctor so he or she can treat problems quickly.

Eye Care - Optometry

One of the most common disorders of the eye, this chronic inflammation of the eyelid can be eased with gentle cleaning and warm compresses.

I went in for a new prescription for reading and everyday progressive lenses. I was able to get an appointment the same day. The exam was thorough and she took her time during the exam and with me to be sure I got the best results.
I was impressed and would recommend her to others.

We won't be going back - I have been to him for probably 6-7 years. I've seen this particular doctor (who I think owns the practice), I think 3 times. The other optometrist has left, I liked him a lot better. I can't say anything good, and neither can my husband (who I persuaded to go with me).

My husband even made a call to our insurance company to complain about how bad they were. He used to work in insurance, and they repeatedly told us things weren't covered, and I'm positive they are.

We spend more time as repeat patients filling out forms and signing things than we did actually having our eye exams. We both have good eyesight, but we're wondering if we really got a decent eye exam, so I'm contemplating paying out of pocket to go somewhere else. It was very clear that once he realized we didn't want to buy prescription 1.5 reading glasses and instead get them from the drug store, it was like he wouldn't give me the time of day.

It seemed like he was just out to sell his product, and once he saw we were educated and questioned him, he had no use for us, which is fine. Very dissatisfied.

was very helpful when I had an unusual eye problem arise. They squeezed me into a busy schedule for the problem. She sent me for the proper tests, told me what to expect, gave me referrals to other doctors.

I went to him because he was close. I got glasses and contacts. I wanted an adjustment in my glasses and them my lens got crack. They should have given me a better customer.

Everyone took plenty of time and I received a detailed eye exam and received a new prescription for eyeglasses. I'm very happy with the results and the person who helped me select a flattering frame did a wonderful job. Lots of compliments on my new glasses!

He is more direct and he will tell you how it is, whatever it is, he will tell you what's going on and how to fix it and his wife a little more passionate with him sometimes actually. They can be assertive, their bedside manner is a little not quite so good and their professionalism they do know what they are talking about. They want to say something that comes right out, "This is the way it should be done." The office environment is very nice.

I did not have my eyes examined by the on premise doctor. I called earlier in the week to find out from which one of the
Columbia Optometrists Provider Name Locked
(they have 5 or 6) one day eyeglass service was offered. It was only at 1030 Arch Street location in Center City
Columbia Optometrists Provider Name Locked
, and they opened at 8:30am, and I was told to get there early so there would be less wait time for me. So this past Saturday morning I arrived after driving 40 miles of heavy traffic at this store location. It was about 8:50am, and the store was already crowded. While I waited to have someone speak with me I used the unisex bathroom. Great! No paper towels to dry my hands. And overall the store facility is old and looks somewhat shabby. Finally when someone helped me, I asked about the one day service. Yes, but for an extra $30 fee. I was outraged. The sales girl moved on to the next waiting customer. Eyeglass frames and lenses have a GIANT profit. Frames are purchased for a little as $10, and are sold for hundreds. Example: I had very high quality Varilux lenses made in a lab which sells directly to the public. They cost $450, and these were progressives, and had

coating both inner and outer. I was recently told by Lenscrafters they didn't even offer this level of lens and the highest quality they had would cost me $1200! So already knowing this cost to selling price ratio, I walked out of the store, ripped up my $6.00 metered parking receipt and drove home. Isn't health care already expensive enough without these terrible prices? Every business deserves a profit, but how much at someone's expense? A terrible experience I'd like everyone to know about.
