"The front office staff was friendly and polite. They were on time with the appointment. They did a complete eye exam with update equipment. The exam was thorough and my questions were answered.

"Staff was very friendly. Office is under construction, but it was still nice and cant wait to see what it looks like after construction is completed. Large waiting" room, large selection of glasses, Dr. Neighborhouse is AWESOME!!!! Only issue I had both times i have been there is a long wait. Not sure if they schedule too many ppl at a time, or if it is just because they don't allow enough time for each person to be seen which puts off the next person, but this was a little bothersome. They do have a lot of employees there, but still long wait time. Doesnt affect my interest in staying with them though, I really like this Dr. and facility. A+++

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.

Optometrist vs. ophthalmologist? Know the difference between these two medical professionals and choose the best professional when it comes to eye care.

Eye Care - Optometry

Numerous factors affect the cost of an eye exam, from your choice of optometrist or ophthalmologist, to location, such as at a retail store or doctor’s office.

An orthokeratology retainer, seen here using special filters, gently molds the surface of the eye and has been shown to stop the progression of nearsightedness, says Keriotis. (Photo courtesy of ClearView Family EyeCare)
Eye Care - Optometry

Up until recently, optometrists didn’t think a child’s nearsightedness was something that could be changed, but new research has developed methods to stop it.

Presbyopia is a condition of the eyes where small, internal muscles weaken over time, slowing down our ability to focus on things that are close up, says Coleman. (Photo by Brandon Smith)

Struggling to read with aging eyes is normal and is a condition known as presbyopia. Talk with your optometrist about these options to make reading easier.

Optometry reviews in Durham

They're really good. I like
Durham Optometrists Provider Name Locked
a lot. The staff is good also. The glasses I need are complicated -- multi-focus lenses. They got me into this type of glasses which work well for me. I typically wait less than 5 minutes to be seen when I arrive.

I needed a quick appointment due to travel and realizing I was out of contacts. The courteous office staff fit me in and validated my insurance during the initial phone call. I had the first appointment at 9 and when I showed up there was only one person in the office. The others strolled in at 9:15 so if you are in a hurry don't get the first appointment. Once everyone was there moving around it was a great environment, very knowledgable and helpful staff. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a new provider.

Their location, price and the courtesy of the entire staff prompt me to continue being a patient. They are covered by my insurance. It's not typically hard to get an appointment during the week there.

I like the optometrist there. I like that they send me a prescheduled appointment via mail and follow up with a phone call. The staff is very personable there and there have not been issues with scheduling appointments.

This was my third time going into the clinic and had intended on buying the glasses I had tried on previously. I was originally quoted a price, when I went back in a few weeks later to purchase the glasses I was told a higher price. The front end girls were very rude and condescending when explaining why my insurance coverage was not available. Because I was still confused and upset I emailed through the website asking for clarification and stating what had happened. I was sent a reply stating there was "confusion" and told my discount through insurance would be available as of January, 2015.
Upon returning last Friday, January 16th I was told that I could not get the discount and went I explained how frustrating that was the girl helping me shrugged her shoulders. I told her I was going else where to purchase the glasses because I felt this was wrong and they should honor the discount under these circumstances. She told me she could "write down the style" of glasses for me to go purchase elsewhere. No apology.
I then decided to email the same woman back who told me I would be given the discount and explained the situation. She apologized and made excuses for why there was still "confusion". Point being they should have offered me the discount because o their errors but it's obvious that was never considered. There are MANY choices as consumers these days and we should spend our money where it matters and with companies that deserve it. I do not recommend

and hope you will think twice about trusting vision care with them. I feel the customer service there is poor and how they handle errors is bad business.

I have been seeing the doctor for about 4 years. She came recommended by a co-worker. She is very personable, nice and kind. If I have an emergency she is happy to fit me in. I had an infection from contacts that she addressed as quickly as possible. She recently relocated and I really like her new office. She has a very nice and kind staff. I have had no issues scheduling a normal visit.
