What our clients say

5 star rated optical

Talk about spanking new! Grew up in this neighborhood seeing this location as a plant shop/mini deli and now as an optical is pretty awesome. The staff were very sweet and helpful! The technology is updated and so different from your usual optical’s. The coolest part definitely had to be that meeting the doctor was through live video and she explained to me on how my eyes were and how it has changed. I would definitely recommend this optical to anyone in the Ridgewood area or even Queens.

I was very anxious about getting my eye exam but knew it had to be done. Im so glad I chose this place! From the second I walked in, I was treated professionally and put at ease. I was blown away by the eye exam. I have never seen such up to date and high quality technology. The exam was very thorough. The doctor showed me the back of my eye, explained to me exactly what’s happening. The collection of glasses were extensive and they had my favorite brands! Best part, I simply walked in. No appointment was necessary.

I love my glasses! They helped me choose the right shape for my face and the lenses are by far the best I have had. The prices were reasonable and you get an authenticity card for the product and lenses. A great experience. I even stop by for adjustments and they do it free of charge. This place is great. Do not hesitate.

The best experience I ever had getting new glasses. Everything in the store is brand new and clean. The technology is state of the art and is so advanced. The people that work there are so kind and knowledgeable. The technician Amy is so nice and answered all the questions I had. When picking out my frames everyone was patient and didn’t rush me at all. Everything was amazing from the service, quality, and staff! ❤️

Awsome technology yo can talk to your doctor via camara and explain everything even they show you how you’re eyes look like. I recommended 100%. No appointment needed just walk in.

Excellent service. I was very satisfied and delighted with the treatment I received. The staff was very friendly and respectful, including the Dr, they made me feel comfortable at all times. For me it is important to find places where they speak Spanish, since my English is not perfect, so I feel that I arrived at the perfect place, where they understand me, respect me and the treatment received is 100%. The technology they use is also wonderful. Not to mention the quality of the lenses they have, they are beautiful and of incredible quality. They have so much variety that I wanted to choose them all, in the end I fell in love with the ones I bought.
I totally recommend this optician.
