I loved David and the other staff in his office. They were super friendly, gave me good takes on glasses and kept finding new pairs to suggest, and were incredibly knowledgeable about things. I was the first appointment of the day,so we started slightly late but David was really personable, got to know me, and walked me through what all of the machines were doing, the differences in the latest models of them, and exactly how to think about various different health indicators. I learned about tear duct health and the risks computer usage poses to that for the first time, and he also checked out my final frame picks. Overall it was a great experience, and I was really pleased he's both got the latest gadgetry and is a really helpful and engaged practitioner as well.

Steve at the front desk was very rude and unhelpful and started the experience poorly. My appointment was at 10:00, which is when the store opens so I waited outside until let in. Kerry was helpful and kind. Dr. Luria ignoredme upon his entrance and continued ignoring me until I walked into his exam room. Most of the exam was him explaining his gadgets. Overall, I got my prescription and did what I came for.

Very good visit with Dr. Luria. His office is very well outfitted with modern technology, and he explained all his devices before he used them to examine my eyes. I can tell that he is passionate about his work and alsovery relaxed and at home in the exam room. The front desk staff were very effective and welcoming. They offered to sell me glasses but weren't pushy about it. They emailed me my receipt and prescription so I have everything I need if I want to pick up some glasses from an outside vendor.

I thought Dr. Luria was great, but his staff wasn't. Maybe because I had a late afternoon appointment but it seemed like they were more interested in closing up shop on time than helping me. I liked that the staff overallwasn't pushy about making me buy anything after my appointment though.

Was seen very quickly, Dr. Luria was very thorough and gave me information about different options for glasses and contacts without being pushy about buying something from them. Although if you are interested in purchasing from them they seemto have a wide selection of glasses and can order contacts for you! Overall was a good experience and I'll definitely go back!

Dr. Luria is fantastic!! I made my appointment on short notice and they were able to take me on a Saturday as a first time patient. He was comprehensive in his knowledge and explained every test he was performing, what myresults were and why certain lenses he suggested were preferable. I have never come out of an appointment having learned this much about my health and the tools/technology used during the appointment ! Would highly recommend to anyone.

He explained every step of his process to me so I could understand what he wasdoing 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.

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.

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 myeye 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.

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 havehealthy 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.
