“One of the best experiences I had getting my eye checkup. The doctor was very nice and professional. Told me all the details I wanted to know about my eyes throughout the exam. Received my prescribed glasses was very fast, in which, took about 5 days. Throughout the whole process, I felt like they did their best to help me get exactly what I needed and truly cared about customer satisfaction. In the end, I was very happy with, not only the glasses, but also the entire process!”
“I’d give this place 10 stars! The employees are super nice, I have never seen so many nice and sweet people at the same place :). I found all the glasses I needed and liked (sunglasses and clear glasses). The employees were extremely helpful with everything, the doctor was great. The whole process was fast and easy. Loved it!”
“I took my son here when he was hit in the eye with a sharp plastic toy. From looking at his eye, I noticed a little bit of blood on his eyeball and was not sure if it required an ER visit. I called Dr. Nguyen and shortly after brought my son in to see him. I found the doctor to be calm and friendly which made my son almost forget he had injured his eye. He had him laughing and sitting still to be checked in no time. My husband has been seeing Dr. Nguyen for his exams and glasses for years and now it looks like my kids will be seeing him as well. I recommend Dr. Nguyen highly without reservation.”
“I had an extremely positive experience here. The whole staff was extremely friendly, down to earth, and eager to help. They were very knowledgable and my whole appointment was great! They have a great selection of glasses and I regret not coming sooner!”
