The store carries a very intimate setting, nice, quite and clean. The front desk clerks are accommodating and personable. Dr. Shiyan is a cool optometrist, the first female, down to earth, clean and accurate. I’ll make sure to visit more often, especially for my contacts!
Thank you Dr. Shiyan….YOU ROCK!
Far and away the best optometry appointments I’ve ever had. Dr. Shiyan is really nice and thorough and puts you at ease right away. She and the staff make a point to listen to your questions and answer as best they can. I had to call back and update my insurance information, but they totally took care of it. Can’t wait to get my frames!
I had a contact and eyeglasses exam. Very easy to schedule. The exam was professional and very friendly. The doctor and staff are extremely helpful, fun, and patient. I highly recommend Village Eyecare (I’ve been searching for a place for 5 years).
They accept most insurances and offer a great selection of modern frames and name brand contacts.
Just go here once and I bet you will return, like me.
Vitaly L.Very professional and knowledgeable staff. Great selection.
I rarely wear glasses but when I do – “Village Eyecare” is my place to get them.
I went through about 15 different pairs of trail contacts before I found some that I could wear for my long work days. Combined with my schedule, I saw these people for a year before actually buying anything.
If I were them, I would have kicked me out; I was a terrible customer. But they were incredibly friendly though out, Dr. Irina listened to my feedback each time and gave me lenses that steadily improved.
She’s easily the best optometrist I’ve ever had.
Sweet and sassy. Classic and chic. Sophisticated but playful. Trendy and cool. Fun and sexy.
Which one am I? Which one will I be tomorrow? What about the day after? If you’ve ever bought a pair of new eyeglasses for yourself or with/for someone else, you may know what I’m getting at. This gentle and elegant piece of metal comfortably sitting on your nose may seem so simple from afar but yet it is so intertwined up close that it can possibly be responsible for getting you to ace the next job interview. The bold statement of a wide plastic rim almost caressing your temples has the potential of letting you close that big sale. Don’t get me started on the sparkles that flare behind the sensuality of the UV protected lenses.
Let’s admit, some frames make you feel like a superhero. Others, not so much. Some get oooohs and aaaaahs from your friends. Others get zip of attention, not even a glance in their direction. You have the right to bear a perfect frame! That is exactly what I did yesterday.
I wish I had the budget to buy a pair of eyeglasses for every one of the above categories, i.e. sexy, sophisticated, trendy. For now, I will only be getting one pair. It has the power to say it all, but doesn’t give away all. It makes you be noticed by others, but at the same time lets them know that you’re not that easy to approach.
A shut out goes out to Village Eyecare on the Lower East Side and the owner (semi-owner?) and staff that helped me make the decision that I’ll be living with for at least a year or two or three. They have a great selection, suitable for any New Yorker and even an occasional tourist that promenades along St. Mark’s place. (A French couple left with a pair to bring home as I was picking out mine). Yes, they have the Guccis and the Pradas, but those are just the beginning. Did I mention there’s a view of the Brooklyn Bridge through a red brick wall? A beautiful hand-painted mural.
I am looking forward to picking up new pair soon! Or I might just stop by to say hello to the girls.
Awesome eye doctors and great staff to help in picking new stylish frames. My original appointment was on a bright day and the doctor suggested I do the dilation part of the exam on another day with less sun or an evening appointment, which I thought was really considerate. No more dreaded eye puff, either. Exam was quick, painless and with lots of helpful information explained in lay terms.
My glasses and prescription sunglasses came within a week, which included a long weekend.
