For Dr. Alan L. Hymowitz, eyeglasses and contact lenses are not the end of an office visit - they are the start of a successful doctor-patient relationship. Over the past 25 years, he has developed a large group of satisfied patients through his extensive Hispanic bilingual optometry practice in Atlanta. He accomplished this by dealing with eyes but most importantly, by caring for people.

Dr. Hymowitz is highly experienced in treating and managing ocular diseases including cataracts, dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, keratoconnus and ocular trauma. He is especially familiar with contact lenses for “hard to fit” patients.

He also partners with leading area eye surgeons in co-managing patients before and after such procedures as lasik, photorefractive keratotomy (PRK), multifocal implants, pterygium removal and corneal transplants.

When not caring for his patients in Atlanta, Dr. Hymowitz is often providing quality eye care as part of mission trips with the OneSight Foundation. He has traveled to such locations as Laos, Cambodia, Tunisia, and Bolivia. Closer to, he is active in local volunteer projects that provide free vision care to Atlanta’s underprivileged schoolchildren. Dr. Hymowitz was the first optometrist to receive the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation Beacon of Hope award in 2010 for all of his volunteer humanitarian efforts.

Dr. Hymowitz finds time for hobbies that range from the arts to sports – for example, from playing piano and singing in community choirs to snowboarding and playing tennis.

As always, Dr. Hymowitz and his staff took excellent care of me. I had a thorough eye exam. My prescription is probably as close to perfect as humanly possible. I was able to find frames I love that strike a great balance between being interesting and not being distracting. I always recommend Eye Haven to my friends.

This is an outstanding privately run office with a very thorough optometrist as well as all the staff who support ordering/booking and customer questions. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and they listened to the patient's questions, concerns, and history to provide the most accurate support. I will be back, they have an attention to detail here that is not found in many other places, and I appreciate that as a patient. They also have contact and frame selection that can go toe to toe with anyone in town if you tend to invest in your eyewear to best equip yourself for the Monday to Friday grind or just wanting to be fashionable, or both. They are not lacking for choices, and they'll help you find what you need.

Dr. Hymowitz was awesome! He took his time with me and reviewed my past history. His office staff is great and one of them sat with me and picked out a whole bunch of frames that looked good on my face. I will definitely keep going to him as my eye dr.

My visit to Dr. Hymowitz at Eyehaven was an overall very pleasant visit. The staff was very friendly and prompt when I arrived. Dr. Hymowitz met or exceeded all of my expectations of the visit. The only negative portion of the visit was being shown around the sales floor with the attempt to sell me new (and designer) eyeglasses despite stating many times that I wear glasses as little as possible.

My visit was fantastic, from start to finish! The lobby area was clean and tastefully decorated, which gave me a great first impression. The staff was friendly and courteous. Dr. Horowitz was very kind as well and even recommended a surgeon for my dry eye condition, which was something other doctors in the past told me I would simply have to live with. I will definitely be returning and will recommend Optica Universal to all of my friends.

My experience was not good enough, but I have to say that the staff in the reception was very nice and friendly. First, I filled out my patient information online, and they made me fill it out again at the office. Then, they made some exams, and I was told they had this sphere evaluation which helped to see the inside of my eye rather than dilating my eyes (I always do it even though is an extra $55 bucks, which insurances do not cover); and then I had to wait for an additional 30 minutes because the doctor I guess had many appointments at the same time (and btw it was not the doctor I made the appointment with, this was a lady). Then she checks on my eyes and tells me that she wants to look I to my eyes and dilate them, and I asked well I did the sphere exam, but she told me even though they had those pictures, that she wanted to look by herself, so I did it (an additional 45 minute wait), but then I did not find a reason why to do the other exam! At the end I spent between two hours to two hours and a half in there! Longest eye exam ever and ironically they made less exams compared to the other place I used to go (I tried this new place because my new insurance does not include the other place in their network), the exam is way more expensive, my contacts were three times more expensive, and I got dilated in addition to doing the sphere exam...not worth my time and money - usually I spend half of what I paid here and I get in and out in 30-40 minutes. I will change my insurance to somebody who includes my old doctor in the network so I can go back with them next year...

Dr. Hymowitz and his staff took excellent care of my vision needs. I have worn glasses and contacts for over 30 years so I have many experiences for comparisons. My experience at Eye Haven was truly top notch. They have very modern equipment and do a great job of explaining what is being measured. They also have a good selection of frames and provide great assistance helping you decide what works for you and looks good. Finally, the front desk staff was very efficient in filing insurance and going through the check-out process. I highly recommend Eye Haven for your next visit to the eye doctor!
