“I was referred by one of my colleagues, I mean from the time I walk in the office. Everyone was very pleasant and very help full. This was my first time and of course I was nervous. They made it so comfortable there for me. This office deserve a 10 STARS!!! Thank you all Staff and Dr.Saba Ayalew”

“ Phenomenal experience here! Came here for an eye exam and new glasses.
Dr. Ayalew is phenomenal. Super-smart and thorough. She really cares about your visual health. She also spent quite a bit of time making sure she got my difficult prescription just right.
The optician picked out a great set of frames I would have never chosen for myself, but they look great on me and I LOVE them! My glasses are extremely well-made, stylish, and were ready in a week.
Just incredible customer service from start to finish. The staff is incredibly friendly, thorough, and they know their stuff. I'm extremely pleased and will no longer go anywhere else!”
“With my complicated prescription it’s really hard for me to find a Doctor who can help me get great vision at all times: for reading, at the computer, and for driving. Dr. Ayalew and her staff fit me in great looking frames for all of these needs. Throughout the whole time I felt the experience was about finding the best solutions to accommodate my vision and lifestyle. They listened, paid attention to my budget and found fantastic frames that I feel confident in and see great out of. I would recommend anyone check out this fantastic team!”
“Doctors do not get any better than the AMAZING Dr. Ayalew. She has the patience of a saint and has done such a fantastic job finding just the right prescription for my incredibly sensitive, severely migraine-prone eyes. Not many doctors would keep testing my eyes weekly, adjusting, and giving me free lenses to get the best fit possible. After a less than perfect experience at My Eye Doctor last year, I am so thankful to have found someone phenomenally competent and devoted to what she does. By all means, if you want a doctor who cares and excels in her profession, please see Dr. Ayalew.”
