Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Christine Law received her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from SUNY Binghamton and then went on to receive her doctorate of optometry at SUNY College of Optometry in 2002. She did her residency in Ocular Disease at the FDR VA Health System in Westchester, NY in 2003 and has been in practice ever since.
In addition to specialized training in Ocular Disease, Dr. Law has experience working with contacts, including fitting specialty lenses and also pediatrics from age 5 and up.
“I love optometry because of the relationships you are able to develop with people over time, and the opportunity to make a real impact in one’s quality of life. I believe that as optometrists we are here to provide comprehensive eye care which not only is important from a vision standpoint but also a health standpoint. As primary eyecare providers, we can detect diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.”
When not seeing patients, Dr. Law is a self-described “foodie.” She has also been involved in the
OneSight Program, providing free eye exams and eyeglasses to patients in need.
Dr. Law is a native New Yorker, and currently lives here in Kips Bay with her husband and three young children. Dr. Law is excited to be here to care for a community that is close to her heart.

She was very informative and had great tools for the tests I needed to have done.
very nice woman, explains everything well and is very relatable. ended up being seen early.
As always Dr. Law is great. She's kind and patient and really cares about her patients. I've been seeing her for years, and she always remembers details about me even though I only see her for an annual eye exam.
She was great but it was a long wait for a pretty empty office
I love Dr. Law's bedside manner and knowledge, and her staff is also great. Jimi (sp?) is also super easy to talk to and everyone was very helpful.
Dr. Law and her colleagues are super friendly, helpful, informative and caring. They take the time to listen to your concerns and are also happy to explain the medical concepts.
Best optometrist I've seen. Very good at explaining the tests, teaching me what I need to know, and offering recommendations. Coming back here for sure.
I would have appreciated a hand shake, especially if I offered it, either before or after our meeting. That is highly frowned upon, in my professional opinion, and I work in an international law firm. However, everything else was great. She is very knowledgeable in explaining all my tests to me and her staff is great. Also, nice technology in office.
Dr. Law was great. She was easy to talk to and welcomed all my questions and took care of all my concerns. I would recommend her to anyone.
Very helpful and attentive. Modest but very clean office.
Visited only to obtain the vision certification for driver's license renewal. And although the location is not especially convenient for me, I will certainly make an appointment for vision care with Dr. Law soon.
she was great!
Dr Law is super friendly and informative, enjoyed my visit.
I really liked Dr. Law. First her technician gave me some basic tests and she was very good. Then Dr. Law did a thorough examination and explained everything clearly to me. She also showed me the pictures of my eyes and what everything meant.
Christine was sweet and made my visit quick and comfortable. I never felt rushed or pressured. Her office walked me through my insurance and contact lens options. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
She was fantastic, she explained my condition to me and she made sure I understood what I had to do to fix it. Very down to earth and professional, very confident about what she was talking about! She rocks!
I highly recommend Dr Law. She is fantastic. I always recommend Dr Law.
As always, Dr. Law was professional, informative, and made me feel comfortable. She explained everything as she did it, and checked in to see how I felt during the exam. Dr. Law is great!
She was very nice, answered all my questions patiently, and helped fit me for a new glasses prescription that I'd known I was needing for a long time, as well as fitting me on the spot for contacts (which I'd never worn before) even though they were fairly busy. The office was really helpful in processing my insurance without issue too.
She was exceptional and thorough and contacted me to follow up.
Dr Law is the best optometrist I ever seen, and I have seen a lot. She was very knowledgeable, she listened to my concerns and offered options that no other doctor has.
Scammers. Don't go they will take you for all you've got.
This is my second visit with Dr. Law and she's one of my favorite healthcare professionals of all time. She's very efficient, kind, and thoughtful when you visit with her. I highly recommend seeing her for your optometry needs.
Very thorough, happy to give explanations and rationale, and a general upbeat attitude made this a pleasant visit.
She's excellent. Very kind and very efficient. Highly recommend her
She is a great professional that takes the time to explain you every test. She is calm and very clear or her explanations. Very positive experience!
Dr. Law does a fantastic job. Her eye exam is most complete I have ever had. I would certainly recommend her. The entire staff is competent and courteous. I have no complaints.
She was great! Very thorough. I would recommend her to a friend.
She's awesome! Highly recommend.
This was my second appointment with Dr. Law and I was equally as impressed. I was seen immediately and she was quick, but very thorough. I'd highly recommend!
The doctor was nice and spent a lot of time with me going over my options. Excellent experience!
I enjoy visiting Dr. Law. She is professional, organized and direct.
It was good. I was treated promptly, politely, and thoroughly. If you want to buy frames there, they don't have the hugest selection, but I feel they have enough selection to satisfy most folks.
Seemed to have the latest in technology for my Eye exam and my experience was great. Christine was very clear and detailed in explaining the issues with my eyes and prescription. They also have a lot of affordable eye glasses, which seems to be rare in NYC. I have been to other, very pushy, less detailed eye exam locations and Christine was awesome. I highly recommend her!
She is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to explaining everything she does to you. She is very personable too and I loved her exclamations! Overall a very pleasant Doctor! You can tell she knows her stuff and works to make sure you are 100% comfortable!
Dr. Law was very friendly and took her time with my visit. Highly recommended!
For some reason it actually hurt when she pulled down my lower eyelids to look in my eyes. It felt like she was poking me directly in the eye, not just pulling the skin. I said "ow", but she didn't adjust. Other than that, it was fine.
Great doctor! I was shocked by the prices however, and am not sure whether that's an issue with my insurance or the doctor. Will be looking into it.
As always Dr. Law is an excellent optometrist. She's patient and caring and really takes the time to make sure you are comfortable and all your questions are answered.
She was very friendly and approachable. My eye exam was thorough and she answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend her!
I would definitely recommend Dr Law - she was professional, courteous, incredibly nice, and took the effort to explain all aspects from showing you the digital pictures for your eyes, explaining diagnoses to talking through pricing for glasses. Her staff were great also - so helpful and just happy to assist. would definitely recommend them.
The appointment was very thorough and she explained everything very easily. I would recommend her.
Dr. Law is great, very nice and knowledgeable.
Dr. Law was courteous, professional, and thorough. She also did a great job explaining the exam and other eye care considerations (for example, when to avoid using my glasses/contacts in order to prevent further deterioration of my vision.)
She's awesome. Seriously, go see her.
I think Dr. Law is terrific. She's very friendly, she's very gentle, and most of all she's extremely helpful with any questions or concerns I have regarding my vision and the care for my glasses and contacts. I highly recommend her.
She is very talented. I recommend her and will keep visiting her. I was coming from LA and was so delighted to get checked by her. Go visit!!
Dr. Law was wonderful! She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. Highly recommend!!!
Dr. Law is great- very professional and also personable.
Very friendly, professional, patient! Highly recommended.
I came here for my annual exam. The office is smaller than other eye doctors I've been to so it's not as busy. Sometimes eye doctors do a lot of unnecessary testing so it seems like she just does the basics. The wait was short and Dr. Law are pretty informative.
During routine eye exam, performed a procedure without telling me it wasn't covered by insurance until AFTER the procedure was performed. If you want to use the retinal exam machine be aware that you'll be charged out of pocket. They won't present it as a choice so be ready.
She was phenomenal. I'd highly recommend her to any of my friends.
Christine was tremendous. She made me feel comfortable throughout the process. Very helpful.
Her bedside manner was very friendly and did all the things needed for annual exam. I had redness and dryness in one of my eyes but she could not tell me the cause of it. She prescribed me treatment for the dry eyes and gave me lot of drops to put into my eyes though.
She was fantastic and very thorough! I'd recommend her highly!
I scheduled this visit because I had gone to an optometrist 5 months prior but had received only a contact prescription, not a glasses prescription. Dr. Law and her assistant were incredibly patient and thorough and the staff made sure to coordinate with my insurance to see that I was covered before conducting any procedures. Dr. Law was quickly able to understand why I had been struggling to see with my glasses/contacts, diagnosing that my previous prescription was far off from my vision needs. She uses much higher tech equipment than other optometrists I have been to. Having had very rushed and careless optometrist appointments in the past, it was refreshing to have someone sit down and take the time to review my eyes with me. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Law is very nice. She was very thorough and explained everything as she went along. There was no pressure to buy glasses at the office.
She is very professional and friendly, will definitely come back again.
Everyone in this office has been a pleasure to interact with every time I've been. Very professional.
Dr. Law was very friendly, careful, and professional. My appointment went smoothly and I had a pleasant experience. Would recommend!

Dr. Law is great. She does a great job of explaining what she's doing and what she's looking for, which I really appreciate. She's also very personable and easy to talk to. I always leave the office feeling good about my visit.
Dr. Law is very professional and helped me with my concerns. Highly recommended.
She was extremely helpful with not only more feed back than I bargained for but very educational and descriptive when it came to understanding more about my eyes and their trajectory in the future.
Dr. Law was very nice and accommodating. She took the time to ensure that I was comfortable and that all my questions were asked. It is very evident that she knows all her stuff. She was very friendly and was fun to chat with. The staff was very friendly as well. There was no hard upsell or problems. Would definitely recommend.
Christine is a true professional, she answered all my questions and generally made the visit very pleasant.
Dr. Law was easygoing and great at explaining things, and her staff was very polite and efficient! Overall a great experience.
Dr. Law and all of the staff were fantastic! They were thorough, quick, and were sure to explain everything they were doing. They were knowledgeable about my insurance coverage which was extremely helpful when deciding what I wanted to do about glassed/contacts. I will definitely make that office my primary eye doctor for future needs.
Excellent office, Dr. Law was very helpful, patient and knowledgeable! Will definitely recommend her!
Very knowledgeable, explained everything she was doing and/or why/what she was looking for, very sweet and personable. Did not have to wait! Highly recommend
I always receive the best treatment when I see dr. law
Dr. Law was very friendly and professional and answered all of my questions. Overall it was a great experience.
Very knowledgable and great bedside manner. Best eye doctor I've been to!
I've been seeing Dr. Law for more than 10 yrs. I was one of her patients when she was with Lenscrafters. I didn't know she left lenscrafters, until I walked in one day and asked for her. I was devastated when I heard she left. God was on my side, because it so happens that there was a young lady at the store that day that works with Dr. Law and she gave me her new contact info. Dr. Law is an amazing Dr. I've recommended people to her. She is one of the few Doctors who takes the time to know their patient, and who could resist that smile and always pleasing demeanor. My eyes will just have to go bad if she ever retires :-)
Great optometrist. High tech equipment, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Highly recommend.
A colleague recommended that I see Dr. Law, when I inquired about finding a new optometrist. So, I scheduled an appointment a week after the conversation. The office staff is extremely friendly and the wait time was relatively short (10 minutes or so). The PA or assistant was also friendly, professional, and efficient. Dr. Law was great. We had a few laughs throughout my examination and she is definitely an excellent optometrist. Processing my information and getting my contacts ordered was also quick and painless. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and will definitely return. I highly recommend her to anyone.
She is a great eye doctor.
Small but efficient office. Dr. law is very professional and will be returning to her For my future exams. I'm a LASIK patient and Dr. Law seemed knowledgeable and able to assess how my procedure has held up 2 years following surgery.
Treated quickly and everything was great. No real commentary, which in my mind is a great thing!
Dr. Law is a gifted optometrist. I have been with her for YEARS. She is such a knowledgeable and friendly physician. I strongly recommend her services to anyone.
Dr. Christine Law is extremely nice and very professional! It's always a fun time doing my annual checkup with Dr. Law!
Dr. Law was extremely personable, caring, and careful. She made me feel comfortable at all times and explained what was happening the entire visit.
Dr. Law is one of the best eye doctors i've had the privilege of seeing. She was extremely professional, thorough, and perhaps most importantly, she explained everything she was doing in detail to me.
Dr. Law was very informative and welcoming. The appointment was quick and efficient and I was able to order new contacts, and she also provided me with my prescriptions. Convenient location (in the lobby of my building!)
Dr. Law was great. Unfortunately what I need to go to her for wasn't covered by my vision insurance but on my health insurance OON.
I needed to see an eye doctor immediately when I suddenly came down with a serious eye issue that left me in a lot of pain. Dr. Law and her office were quick to bring me in and extremely accommodating in scheduling my necessary follow up appointments - even though it was not convenient. Additionally, her prognosis was accurate and the pain started subsiding almost within moments. The office was also very clear on what was and was not covered by my insurance. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an eye doctor without hesitation.
The doctor was very kind and helpful. She made me feel completely at ease and moved quickly through the tests. She also informed me what parts of the visit were not covered by insurance upfront so I could opt out, which I really appreciated.
Very good doctor, professional, kind and understanding. Pleasant to be in her office. All staff is excellent.
Couldn't have been better.
The wait took a little while, maybe 20 - 25 minutes, but the actual appointment was quick without feeling rushed. Dr. Law was very thorough and patient, and answered all of my questions.
Everything was quick and professional.
Dr. Law was Great, but staff not so much... they took pictures of my eye and didn't tell me it was a $41 +/- charge until they doctor was ready to review. That is something that SHOULD be told or discussed before. They don't really explain much until they are charging you. Staff wasn't the greatest fit for me.
She was cry good. She even saw me for a follow-up, to adjust my prescription.
Very personable, answered all of my questions.
Dr. Law was both friendly and professional. She took the time to explain each procedure to me and that put me at ease.
My visit with Dr. Law went very well. So glad I found her and scheduled an appointment with her. The appointment did not feel rushed at all and she answered all my questions. She was very thorough. I will definitely be seeing her from now on.
Dr. Law is very pleasant and precise. The office made me feel right at home
Dr. Law was friendly, warm, and professional. I really appreciated how she took the time to explain all steps of the checkup to me and discuss different prescription and contact options with me.

Dr. Law is an amazing, gifted Optometrist! She takes her time with her patients and she cares about not only their eyesight, but general well being as well. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Great, easy to get to and not as stuffy as some optometrists. Definitely didn't feel pressured to buy glasses.
The staff here was super nice. Dr. Law was very open to questions and asked a lot of background info, which I really like since I was new. They had my contacts right in the office and were very helpful with explaining my insurance plan.
She was very thorough during my routine check up. I will definitely go back to see her again!
Knows her stuff. The different eye exams I had done were very thorough.
She was very informative and very pleasant. I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Law and will definitely continue to use her.
Dr. Law was EXCELLENT. She and the rest of her staff were all very welcoming and kind. Dr. Law was very friendly and very personable yet still extremely professional. She was thorough during my examination which made me confident that my eyes were in great care. The appointment was extremely comfortable and I'm excited to make her my optometrist!
This was my first visit, the receptionist informed that the technician would see me shortly then on to Dr. Law. The exam was simple and didn't take too long. All staff were clear about the procedures performed and the potential cost implications. I plan to stick with Dr. Law.
Great all around. Everyone was a pleasure to interact with, and each part of my eye exam was explained to me.
She was great and made recommendations for me based on my lifestyle + budget. Appreciated her consideration of my needs.
Office staff was courteous and helpful. Dr. Law was friendly, knowledgable, and took time in answering my questions.
Dr. Law is great! She's nice, informative, and straightforward, and the appointment itself was quick and easy. The receptionists were also helpful and patient with all my questions. All around a great experience.
I really don't know how the experience with Dr. Law could have been better- she was both professional and personable, as was her staff. She took the time to explain everything in layman's terms and was quite nice. The staff was very helpful and friendly. If you're looking for an optometrist, I highly recommend this office and Dr. Law.
She was very professional, attentive, and authentic! I have had trouble finding an eye doctor and I will definetly see her again!
