  • Don’t try to remove an embedded object out of your eye
  • If your eye is injured, don't press on it or rub it
  • Dry cotton and sharp instruments such as tweezers should never be used on the eye.

Everyone is amazing. It was super easy to get an appointment and the lady that scheduled us was nice... and efficient. The secretary, when we went in, was super nice as well very informative also. The tech (not sure her official title, but the lady that ran all the machines) was amazing! My son is 6 and she explained everything so well so that he would understand what to do. The Dr also has a talent for getting young children to understand him. He was also extremely nice and patient and took time to explain things.

I had 3 pairs of Cartier optucal glasses I needed lens updates for. It was impossible to find a shop... who could drill lens for my rimless frames. They did a great job and at half the cost of my usual shop in Chicago. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I will be back for sure!

Scratched my eye on vacation, which resulted in a scratched cornea. I have no previous eye condition... s yet finding this provider, getting an appointment was smooth. Wait time was short and the actual appointment was quick. Dr. Loriane Payan was very sweet, spoke to me as if we were friends and I felt comfortable asking questions. Would recommend to anyone!
