Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Luria is my favorite optometrist I have visited. He was very welcome and warming but what I really appreciated was how informative he was. He explained every step of his process to me so I could understand what he was doing and why. I learned a lot more about my eyes and vision in the process. His receptionists were also very friendly and funny as well. Great experience.
Clean and welcoming office. Staff and doctor were all very friendly. Doctor Luria was very knowledgable and took the time to explain everything he was doing. I appreciated that!
Excellent visit, very informative and reminded me of the importance of eye checks. The opticians out front were also fun to work with and try on glasses. Recommend!
He was ok, nothing special, and got flustered with some of my questions. Also I had to wait for over 30 minutes even though I showed up 5 minutes ahead of time and he was running so far behind my schedule that he couldn’t give me a full exam.
Been going for 7 years, excellent service.
Dr. Luria was extremely pleasant, thorough, and informative. Great experience overall!
Dr. Luria is great! He's super friendly and ready to explain what he's doing. I think he has a lot of fancy gadgets that mean I don't have to get my pupils dilated?? The appointment was super fast and easy and it was neat to see all the stuff going on with my eyes.
I would recommend Dr. Luria to anyone! I had an emergency and got an appointment the next day. Dr. Luria was attentive, very professional and kind. He took his time to explain everything and to give me peace of mind.
Dr. Luria has been my eye doctor for about 5 or 6 years and he's seriously phenomenal. Prompt, laid back, and good sense of humor... plus he thoroughly explains what he's looking at and definitely seems to truly care about my eye health. I can't see myself going anywhere else. Did you see what I did there? HA! I just did it again! Anyway, do yourself a favor and choose this doctor.
Best in the business. Friendly considerate thorough and so knowledgable. Always takes the time to listen and help me see. I cannot recommend Dr Luria and his team enough!!
Dr. Luria was patient and knowledgeable, and took the time to explain things in a way that I could understand.
Dr. Luria was very approachable
Dr. Luria was very personable and fun to talk to! I had an excellent time and zero issues being taken care of right away. Generally any sort of doctor visit makes me anxious, but Dr. Luria was very attentive and easy going. I was only there for an exam, but the glasses they do carry seem pretty neat and if I were looking for a second pair, I might consider buying them there!
David, as I said you are exceptional. I appreciate what you said about my vision and it was very accurate because that is exactly how I felt.I will definitely come back for next visit. This is what David said, "you have healthy eyes, no diagnosis. Only use eye glasses when driving, and when you want are watching TV to be able to see from distance. However when reading, and on your computer you dot need to. Exactly how I feel. He was just beyond perfection.
Great service! Super quick and efficient. Very friendly!
Great, knowledgeable, helpful, relaxed, insightful-I tried on 7 pairs of frames but he picked the best ones right off the bat!
Simple & easy. Was very polite & straight forward with me
I had a great experience. Everyone was nice & David had a great energy. I only waited 5 minutes to be seen and that's bc I was early. Would definitely recommend!!!
He didn't introduce himself, but he answered all of my questions and made sure that I was prepared for what was coming up next in the exam. I didn't feel nervous or tense, which was great!
Dr. Luria was great! I had run out of contacts and broken my glasses in the span of a week, and he had me taken care of with a new pair in half an hour. I appreciated that he took the time to explain the purpose of the different tests and machines during my exam. And the staff members were friendly and helpful!
Simply put, was truly a fan of the entire establishment. Two thumbs up. The eye exam was incredibly thorough and I appreciated the "play by play" and/or explanations of the process.
The most fun thing about the visit was that Dr. Luria took the time to explain what each machine did, and in layperson terms.
Dr. Luria was professional and friendly, and I appreciated that he took the time to explain each part of the exam. He and the staff at Eye Q were wonderful.
Excellent practitioner, highly recommend!
Great bedside manner. Very knowledgeable, thorough, and helpful. Would definitely recommend!
Explained to me what he was doing, which was great!
Very professional, listened to my concerns and tried to find answers. Also very friendly. Would definitely recommend to others to go there
Professional with a great sense of humor. He's not just trying to get you out the door, he really wants to find the best solution for you. Extraordinary equipment and capabilities. Doesn't talk down to you, gives you the information in an easy-to-digest manner. His employees/associates are top notch. And... I can see. Clearly. That's a pretty critical result for an optometrist appointment.
Smart, knowledgeable, honest.
Mr. Luria was very helpful and did a great job explaining the exam to me, as this was my first eye exam. Also Chris helped me pick out my first glasses which I'm thankful for! Great place!
Mr. Luria was very nice and informative during my appointment, he explained my options thoroughly and his front desk assistants were very polite and helpful. I felt assured I was being given the correct information and would go to this location again.
So awesome! Patient, interested, professional.
Great staff. Cool place to be
Exquisite treatment and eye examination thoroughly. A great professional
Small office in Harvard Square. Polite and helpful staff. Optometrist did a great job explaining what was going on during my eye exam.
I really liked him. He was good about explaining what he was doing, showing me what things mean, and showing how the glasses are going to help me with eyesight (rather than just telling me I need glasses).
It is was a quick visit and I did not receive the normal tests I receive during an eye exam, just 'this is your prescription'. Once he found out I had MassHealth he figured I just wanted the free pairs they offer and left me with a binder.. umm, no. When I came back in 6 days later (yes it took 6 days for them to make my glasses), the doc looked at me and didn't even bother with a 'Hello'. I also did order a backup pair of the free glasses MassHealth offers, but I just called them last week, they forgot to order them, they don't even know which ones I picked - and now they want me to go back down there to fix THEIR problem. No thanks. Never coming back here. About 500 dollars not well spent.
Dr. Luria is amazing really easy to talk to and get at his job!!
Dr. Lurid just rocks, plain and simple. He explains everything thoroughly, he's super cool, and really cares about the health of my eyes.
He was very professional, and also down to earth. He took the time to explain everything to me, step by step. I really appreciated that.
Dr. Luria is incredibly kind, professional, and thorough! We discussed my optical options and he made sure that I clearly understood my choices and answered all of my questions.
It was so easy. He's personable, organized, well equipped, and a clear communicator. I'll go back for my next appointment.
Dr. Luria is consistently awesome. Very thorough with a great bedside manner. He explains what he's doing well and is clear in explaining what he finds.
Very professional and took time to explain what he was doing and waited for a while after asking if I had any questions. Also, he has good taste in picking out glasses.
Excellent. Very thorough and well explained.
Another great eye appointment! I've been seeing Dr. Luria since 2012 or so, and it's been excellent. He is quick to see his patients and willing to answer questions and discuss all options for eyecare and eyewear.
Great optometrist---very thorough examination and cool guy!
Dr. Luria is wonderful! He's kind, professional, and thorough, and he's always happy to answer questions. His staff are also great with helping you find flattering frames for your glasses.
Dr.Luria was fantastic! He was very thorough and explained every instrument as we went. Highly recommended!
Dr. Luria is very friendly, prompt, and professional. He also does a great job explaining what all of the different instruments are measuring and testing.
This was the first time I had my eyes examined for prescription glasses. I felt that Dr. Luria thoroughly explained each test that went into determining the appropriate prescription for me. After answering my questions in the exam room, he helped me identify frames that would best suit my needs both functionally and cosmetically. Chris, his assistant, was very personable and helpful. I will return should I have any issues in the future!
David was funny and professional. He explained everything that he was doing, and let me know what our follow up process was. I'd definitely recommend him to others.
My appointment with David Luria was extremely positive and I would highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable and educated me along the way on what he was doing/discovered while using modern "up-to-the-minute" equipment to test my eyes. He then gave me his candid opinion on what options to choose for glasses, vs. contacts. There was no sales pitch or pressure and I was back at work within my lunch hour. My family now has a new optometrist.
Dr. Luria was excellent! Very thorough in the exam and explained each test so that I could understand what was going on!
The doctor was very nice and thorough, and they dealt with my insurance very well. The glasses were much more expensive than I was expecting, and I could have used a better explanation of the cost especially in hindsight.
He is an excellent eye doctor - I have been seeing him for years. He's thorough, explains everything, and the prescriptions are perfect.
Friendly and extremely competent--I highly recommend Dr. Luria!
Good communication. Informative. Satisfying visit.
Very professional, very thorough, and very no-nonsense. I would recommend Dr. Luria enthusiastically and without hesitation.
He's relaxed, knowledgeable, and has a cool-and-groovy vibe. I got my prescription updated and got fitted for new contacts quickly and painlessly. There's always great music playing in the office, too (vinyl, at that). So: aces.
Dr. Luria was very comfortable to work with meeting him for the first time. He first asked me about myself, and while proceeding with the exam, patiently explained every machine he used and what it does. He has a very genuine, calm bedside manner and it was a very good experience for me.
Dr Luria is awesome! He was very polite and personable and took the time and care to explain what he was doing during the exam, which was very thorough. He explained all of my options and answered my questions...I did not feel the least bit rushed. During the exam, he took photos of my cataracts with his phone. As he was leaving the office, he stopped to ask me if I would like them sent to me and he texted them to me right then and there! The staff was great too. The woman who greeted me and checked me in was super nice and explained the options available with my insurance. The guy who helped me choose frames picked out some great ones I would never have thought would look good on me! And he did his best to work within my budget to get me what I needed and wanted. Overall, a great experience and I would recommend Dr. Luria and his practice very highly!
Had a great eye exam at Eye Q this morning! I arrived early, not sure what the parking situation around Harvard Square would be, and was promptly greeted and checked in by a young man at the front desk. It appeared he was being trained, and he and his trainer were delightful to interact with. After a quick few questions, I was checked in. I waited only a few minutes (again, I was early) before being seen by Dr. Cheng. She was equally delightful, and we had an enjoyable conversation while my eyes were checked out. I'd characterize the exam as enjoyable, succinct, and thorough; everything I'd hoped for. On departure, I was provided a printed copy of my prescription and my receipt. I also had the opportunity to observe the front desk staff interact with a few other patients, and I noted how familiar the staff seemed with them. It was clear that patients who come once come back.
I thought Dr. Luria was great. He was very welcoming and explained what he was doing. Very professional. Highly recommended
Lovely group. Highly recommend!
Dr. Lucia was great and efficient . Everyone in the office was great to work with!
Kind and incredibly informative. Explained all the tools he was using, what he was measuring, and went through my results succinctly and comprehensively.
David is fun and talkative so he really makes sure to ask you about everything before you leave. He also had a machine that is broken, but he assured me that, when I stop in to pick up my contacts, I can do that test really quickly to ensure my visit is fully comprehensive.
Always efficient, clear, and so helpful!
I arrived a few minutes early and was taken in to see Dr. Luria very quickly. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is knowledgeable and highly skilled. I much preferred my glasses and contacts experience here than at chain locations and at a large academic medical center here in town. And I can't say enough about my Moscot frames -- I've gotten so many compliments about them and I was thrilled that I didn't have to travel to NYC to get them.
Condescending service. Had to ask for a copy of my prescription.
This was our daughter's first visit to an optometrist. Dr. Luria was not only professional, but also reassuring and even made it fun. Great staff who helped make it easy to find great frames. Our daughter also liked the trendy look and location. The whole family will be back.
Great experience for the most part, just one staff member who came off rude and condescending.
I had a great experience. I was seen right away and David was friendly, professional and informative. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Luria was professional and personable, I will be coming back.
The doc was knowledgeable, polite, and pleasant. Staff was very supportive, the office is bright, clean, and the tunes! I will return.
Extremely efficient, helpful, and relaxed!
Dr. Luria was terrific -- knowledgeable, smart, and an excellent communicator. I'd recommend him highly.
Based on all the other wonderful reviews, and the convenience of his location, I booked an appointment. He was every bit as professional and educational as I expected he would be. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone needing vision correction.
Very professional, friendly and informative and thorough. Thank you.
Eye Q is a really cool office; everyone was really nice and helpful.
Very knowledgable and explained every test he did and why he did it. He is thorough and very personable. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area.
It was overall a good experiance. I need help with an infection and he gave it to me, and now I'm feeling better.
Very professional, explained why we were doing each step and didn't try to sell me really hard on buying a pair of glasses in the store.
Dr. Luria is very professional, kind, and knowledgeable. I received a standard annual eye exam and had a fantastic experience! I will be a returning customer for years to come.
Very friendly and thorough. I bought my glasses there as well, which was expensive but the glasses look great and they did a great job of fitting them.
Dr. Luria is a real pro. He walks you through an eye exam and explains everything he will be doing.
I have been seeing Dr. Luria for 8 or 9 years now. He is thorough and patient and overall does a great job. I always know I am in good hands and will get the eye services I need.
Dr. Luria is extremely personable and very thorough. Being new the to the area, I'm happy to say I've found a trusted Optometrist in Cambridge.
Great staff, very helpful and friendly. Casual and comfortable atmosphere. Great selection.
I was very happy with my appt. Doc Luria was very thorough and answered all of questions. Seemed very knowledgable and the office staff were very friendly. Definitely recommend.
Friendly, Fast, and Efficient. Would recommend.
Terrific optometrist. Very friendly, and more importantly, very thorough and professional in his work. My eyes feel so much better because he took the time to get my lens prescription right, unlike some of the big box store optometrists that want to get you out the door as fast as possible. Highly recommend Dr. Luria!
Dr David Luria is fantastic and very polite. He is also a musician so that explans a lot about him..
The place is very professional and you can tell that he has alot of knowledge in this field. He explains in detail aspects of my eyes so I can fully understand whats going on and why. I like the fact that I leave understanding what he did. The two men at the front desk are really nice, they make you feel very welcomed. I would suggest this place.
Dr. Luria was excellent! Very kind and knowledgeable, with state of the art technologies. The man working the desk was quite unfriendly, and lacking in customer service skills, and if he was replaced with someone kind and welcoming this would have been an extraordinary experience!
Dr. Luria was very nice and thorough. He provides great insight on how to take care of your eyes and is very quick with his checkup. Definitely a good person to go to!
He did a great job of explaining each step of the exam process and discussing what the results meant at each point. He's really well grounded and educated in eye care and technology. Best exam I can remember.
An easy visit - I believe it was the quickest exam I've ever had. Dr Luria showed me a picture of the inside of my eye, which was quite intriguing. Especially convenient for me was that I was able to take my 8-month old into the examination room in her stroller.
Very thorough and patient!
Dr. Luria was awesome - I have never had such a thorough eye doctor before and was extremely pleased with his willingness to share the science behind my dry eyes!
Super friendly, thorough and professional.
Dr.luria was very pleasant.explained everything he was doing.is very knowledgable.has very good eye exam equipment.and his staff is also, very friendly.
It was a pleasant experience.
Was seen immediately. Dr. Luria was very friendly and warm, and he performed the exam quickly and competently.
Easy to talk with, great sense of humor and sense of what people need to know.
incredibly personable, very knowledgable, and a quick and easy (and highly efficient) procedure. he has a laid back style, while working diligently to diagnose and assess your eyes, and has a great sense of humor. recommend all the way!
My visit with David Luria, OD was great! Everyone in his office, including him, was very helpful, patient, and kind. There is also a clear sense of passion for the work being done here.
Dr Luria was thorough and precise. A very professional individual.
Dr. Luria was fantastic! I have been wearing contacts for 10 years and I've never had a doctor that took the time to make sure the contacts fit perfectly/worked well for my eyes. Turns out there was a better fit available in a different brand. I appreciate his holistic approach and how personable he is.
Dr. Luria is awesome! Very friendly and easy going but very knowledgable. Willing/eager to explain things in a simple to understand but detailed manner. Clearly shows investment in the patient being involved in their own health care!
He was funny, thorough, on time, unrushed, answered all my questions, examined & fixed my eyes with clear expertise and was generally relaxed & groovy.
Excellent. 2:30 pm appointment. Helpful and friendly staff. Bought two pairs of stylish frames and lenses. Experience so far is way better than Lenscrafters but turn around is one to two weeks. Minor: "puff machine" died but David promised a free puff test (glaucoma test) after repaired.
Great experience! Also (although I got contacts instead of glasses) they have a fantastic selection of frames.
He as very nice and thorough.
Uses all of the latest digital tools, and has my records from the whole time I've been in Boston. I've gotten two frames here, and my wife has as well; they also replaced a set with a manufacturing flaw for her for no charge.
I have been with Dr Luria for a long time (over 10 years) and I keep coming back because he's a an excellent eye doctor, and a great person. My visits are like with an old friend. Great service, great business.
Very helpful in navigating the Davis Vision system and recommending how to get the most out of my coverage (i.e. glasses vs. contacts). Staff were very nice in helping me explore and select frames.
Very patient and professional, good at explaining things and answering questions, highly recommended.
He was awesome and I will definitely recommend him to others!
He was very nice with my 7 year old daughter.
He was very professional and informative.
Dr. Luria is SO personable, is fun, and helpful!
Very informative about what the different portions of the exam were for and how they relate to eye health.
Very attentive to my individual needs, took care to make exam as comfortable and informative as possible for me. Highly recommend!
The eye exam struck me as thorough and competently done. Dr. Luria answered my questions clearly and effectively. One downside: glasses (both frames and lenses) purchased through his office are pretty expensive, even with in-network insurance coverage.
it was a great experience!!
As always, Dr. Luria was fantastic. He was great at explaining everything to me and really great at making the explanation accessible to someone who has NO knowledge about eye health.
Great environment, nice staff, and really helpful in explaining contacts and glasses. Overall great experience.
He is very thorough and attentive to his patients. Informative and answers all questions. :)
A real nice guy, who was pretty thorough with my examination and happy to explain anything and everything along the way. A real professional
Wonderful eye doc - professional, explains every step and has some great imaging tech. I had over-corrected vision from a previous doc and he fixed me up. The second I put the new lenses in I could feel the difference. Nice frame selection too.
Professional, informative, and overall excellent.
I was running late due to MBTA issues but that wasn't a problem. David was very congenial and after I completed a basic intake form, he evaluated my situation. I spent less than 15 minutes in his office and left feeling relived that my eyesight issue was treatable with an eye drop medication. He listened to my issues and although it wasn't a full eye exam, he did come to my aid when I came to him with a degree of concern. I have a follow up with him next week to check on his diagnosis and my recovery.
Great doctor! Very friendly, competent, and he explains what he is doing and why, which is very helpful! Will absolutely be back!
David was nice and thorough. He made sure to conduct my exam carefully since I had not been to the eye doctor's office in a while.
Explained the procedures in detail.
Perfect! Would highly recommend!
Very happy with my entire experience at Eye-Q!
Dr. Luria was friendly, thorough and informative. A very likable person, as well.
He was fabulous!
He was excellent. I really liked how he walked me through each little "test", so I understood what exactly he was looking for, what was considered "good", and how my eyes did in comparison. Didn't oversell the glasses either, which is nice.
Very friendly, professional, and thorough. I will definitely be back!
Great customer service, professional yet relaxed environment, Informative experience, and they put quality and comfort first.
I've been with Dr Luria for about 10 years now. I wouldn't go to anyone else. He's thorough friendly, and always makes sure my eyes are taken care of correctly. A great professional.
Dr. Lucia saw me promptly, explained in detail every examination that he performed, and presented a friendly and professional demeanor throughout the entire appointment. He takes his profession seriously yet works much faster than any optometrist I've ever seen--the exam took about half the time I had expected.
It was a pleasant experience! Dr David was friendly and his staff was as well.
Friendly, good communicator, concerned with getting the Rx right, took the time to listen. Shop + office could use a little spruce up.
Got in early with no problems. Dr. Luria was very professional, but still personable. He spent a good amount of time discussing my history and my eyes along with his recommendations.
Absolutely fantastic! Easy eye check-up and new prescription in under 30 minutes.
Best visit to optometrist I've ever had, bar none.
the Dr. Luria was knowledgeable, mindful, helpful, professional and interesting.
An excellent and very thorough exam, and a very personable doctor. The selection of frames in the office is very narrow however.
Great technology and service, and there was no wait at all. The Harvard Square is a little hectic at times, and I was late due to traffic, though no complaints at all about the business!
This is one smart guy that takes the time to clearly explain what is going on.
Great! Dr. Luria was knowledgeable and professional! I traveled 50 miles for my visit and would do it again...
Best eye doctor I've ever been to! Liked the casual atmosphere a lot. He also takes the time to listen and discuss with you, any concerns or questions you have. Definitely would recommend Dr. Luria!
It was great! Dr. Luria and his staff are incredibly professional, helpful, and patient! Definitely coming back here.
Loved this doc and his staff. Super friendly, helpful, but not pushy. The doctor was also really informative and explained lots of the exam/reasons why he did certain things, which was nice. I feel it's a rarity to be included in what's actually going on with our own exams!
Very personable Explains things so I can understand them without too much esoteric detail Willing to discuss pragmatic choices between issues like cost, convenience, efficacy
This guy is awesome. From the friendliness, to the high-tech, state of the art equipment, to the orange chair in his office. I felt comfortable and happy the entire time. What a change from my previous eye doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Luria. Everything was great.
Both Dr. Luria and Tricia were excellent to work with. Dr. Luria is very thorough. Tricia helped me to pick out my lenses and helped me with insurance issues. Will continue to go to Eye Q for a very long time.
Professional, nice, and knowledgable. I've been seeing him for years and plan on seeing him forever!
Dr. Luria is an extremely thorough and competent professional and I highly recommend him.
Fun, smart, thoughtful, great at explaining my choices.
Very helpful, very knowledgeable, very friendly.
