I went to an optometrist for years, and this was my best experience yet. They were quick, every employee was nice, and they answered all of my questions and explained everything to me. I had such a great experience. They reallymade me feel comfortable, and I was in and out in less than an hour!

Very pleasant. Friendly and articulate, he was interested not only in my eyes' health but to make sure I had all the information I needed. A great consultation from a very human doctor.

Dr Alboher was great! He patiently took the time to listen to the issues I was having with my vision and offered a clear and comprehensive plan to narrow down the potential causes. I’ll definitely look forward to my next appointment!

Dr AA is a thorough doctor- I liked the technician who did the tests on the machines- she was friendly and efficient. The front office staff is also nice Was not too impressed with the Optician though - once she learned that I had no vision insurance, she lost interest!

Dr. Alboher was very thorough and professional. I came in to see him for a routine DMV vision test, and I've never had such complete vision exam. I would definitely recommend him, and will be seeing him again if ever need be. Thank you Dr. Alboher!

Dr. Alboher was just lovely. He made me feel comfortable and well cared for and he explained every test he was performing. I saw him in a pinch because my other optometrist was unavailable, but, I might just switch! The receptionist and the assistant were both wonderful as well.

He listened to the issues I had with previous doctors and took his time explaining what was wrong with my vision and the few ways it could be treated. Took his time and made sure I was comfortable with the trials before I left.

Really nice, easy going and thorough in everything he does. He asked a lot of questions about my eye issues and focused on finding the right diagnosis. Plus, he listened and was patient. I feel so fortunate to have found ateam of nice, normal, attentive doctors at the Midtown Manhattan Dry Eye Center.
