Sahar A.

What an incredible store! A great selection of frames and amazing customer service. Shafi was so helpful and patient while I tried on countless glasses.


Best eye store! The associates are knowledgable, friendly and I got my glasses made quickly. They were measured perfectly! I wouldn't buy glasses anywhere else.

Leslie P.

Outstanding customer service. Dr Patel was the most kind, patient and knowledgeable doctor. My young daughter needed contacts for the first time and she was extremely nervous. Not only was Dr Patel amazing with her but the entire staff tried helping her at different times. They are my new go to contact whisperers! I’m going next week it have my examined there as well. They are knowledgeable, friendly and hard working. A 10 out of 10!

Laura R.

I recommend The Eye Man. You'll get service from knowledgeable people and they seem to carry only a quality product which holds up. After many years of wearing glasses which were only OK, I finally got good advice about the glasses shape which suits my face. I'm so happy with my new glasses, knowing they'll have that shape again when I need a new pair.

Diana J.

I received expert recommendations on state of the art lens technology and friendly service while selecting frames. Great customer experience—will send friends and family.

Abigail F.

As the founder of Harmony By Karate on the upper west side I fully endorse Elie as an optometrist and her amazing store! I am 57 and now fully understand the health of my eyes and exactly what glasses I needed. She is extremely kind, helpful, and professional!!
