Verified Patient Reviews
My 1st visit was awesome! Dr Eugenio is thorough and explains things in a way that we're easy to understand.
I actually had fun at this appointment! They worked with me to get a prescription that would match my daily use and taught me a lot about eye health. Did you know you can detect certain types of cancer by looking inside your eye? Well, I do now. Awesome experience, will definitely be returning.
Awesome as always. I moved to downtown Austin but will continu to make this trip as Dr. Eugenio is the best.
Amazing doctor! So personable and willing to answer any question we have. Very thorough and professional.
Chris is very friendly and knowledgeable. He will work hard at getting you the best and most comfortable vision he can. I like that in an optometrist.
I have worn contact lenses for a long time. I have astigmatism and utilize mono-vision for reading. Dr. Eugenio has been able to fit me better than any optometrist I have visited previously.
Chris is very knowledgeable and he has a very likeable personality. He has a great way of getting to know you and your eye care needs. My trust I him means a lot.
Dr. Eugenio has been my eye Dr. since 2009. Recently the VA sent me to another provider and the Rx was incorrect so I went to see Dr. E and he got my Rx correct. I will never get another free VA exam, I will stick with Dr. Eugenio!!!!
He was careful, knowledgeable, thorough and he explained everything in detail to me in a way I could understand.

Dr Eugenio is awesome! Highly recommend, he's very helpful.
My son really likes this doc! My son is a teenager and hates everything, so that says a lot. Dr. E is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything. He also gives you the best suggestions to meet your eye care needs. I'm very impressed by him and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a doc with a good bedside manner!
He was friendly, cared about my needs and concerns while taking time to listen. He explained the processes very well. And with it being my first eye exam he made it easy and comfortable.

That was Vanessa's first eye checkup, and she liked Dr. Eugenio very much. He was attentive, professional, polite and friendly.
Dr Chris Eugenio is a great guy. Very personable and answered all my question much better than any other optometrist I have ever been too. He truly seemed to understand my needs when it came to what kind of prescription I needed. Should be 6 out of 5 stars.
This was my second time to use Mr. Eugenio. He's very professional and nice and so is his receptionist. I got there and got in right away with hardly any wait at all. A lot of the time I get uneasy because of the awkward silence between myself and a doctor but he keeps me talking and has a calming demeanor. I'd highly recommend!
Dr Chris was great I explained to him that I wear reading glasses with my contacts & really don't like to wear them he suggested that I try a different brand that I just love. Thank you Dr Chris
Very thorough, knowledgeable, and personable.
Pros - *Extremely knowledgeable *Articulate and clearly explains what's going on during the exam and takes the time to go over the results *Provides all options that can meet your needs *Pleasant and kind personality *Knows how to talk to kids, even my unruly teenager *Modern equipment *Clean and quaint office *Convenient location (at the very front of Target off 1431) Cons Luckily, my insurance is accepted, but if yours isn't, ask for a discounted rate, which I believe they provide

I absolutely, love Dr. E. He was great with my son and he even played with my one year old. He was very thorough when he was examining my son and made sure he covered all his bases for him. He talked me through the whole process and answered all of my questions, my circumstance was a little different and when I felt discouraged he was able to talk to me about options that we had. I highly recommend Dr. E and I will be taking my family there from now on! Great Job and thank you for caring about my family!
Dr. Eugenio is the most thorough eye doctor! He took the time to double check the new eyeglasses Rx when I still couldn't read the 20/20 line. Previous eye doctors thought that was the best they could do...
Dr. Eugenio is very thorough and takes his time with each of his patients. I recommend him for your eye care needs.

It was great; I choose to drive all the way up there from Austin each year to visit him because of it.
Excellent and fast service!!
I have been going to Dr Eugenio for a long time. I recommend him to everyone I can.
Nothing fancy about the clinic itself. I actually was questioning whether he is a doctor or just a vision check tech, but boy I was wrong. He listened to me patiently and confirmed his diagnosis to make sure he isnt missing anything serious. He explained the root cause of my problem in detail. The medications he prescribed were spot on. He went over the dosage information twice and thrice to make sure I dont get mixed up. All in all very good experience but can one visit say it all? I dont know, I will definitely go back a few more times and see if this is a consistent service from him.
I have been going to Dr. Eugenio for 3 years and plan on being a loyal patient for many years to come. Dr. Eugenio is thorough, patient and remembers you as a person not just a patient.
Enjoyed my visit with Chris. Very thorough. Would recommend in an instant.
Great doc. Thorough and explanative.
Yay for healthy eye balls!
great as usual!
He was knowledgeable and polite. We drove from Houston and it was worth it!
