The office is beautiful, staff very friendly. They were also very fast, but not in a rushed way, just efficient. From walking in the door my whole exam only took 30 mins (without dilation).

Dr. Lister wa very knowledgable in her field but her bedside manner was almost non-existent. I didn't think I could have a negative experience at an optometrist's but she made me feel bad for purchasing the contacts that I currently usedand she critisized my previous doctor and my request for astigmatism lenses (even though I have an astigmatism). In terms of quality of skill she is fine, but in terms of patient connection i would recommend another doctor.

My time at Dr. Lister’s office was great!! I was attended to right away by staff and they all were very friendly and professional. My appointment was perfect as Dr. Lister answered all my questions and conducted a thorough exam. I definitely recommend!

The office was very clean, modern, and sleek. Checking in was simple and quick. I was seen for pre-testing within 2 minutes of sitting in the waiting area. During the pre-testing, I answered some basic questions and did two tests. Iwas offered two options for eye dilation (including their costs with my insurance), both of which I passed on as I had to return to the office. The doctor then saw me. She was very professional and thorough. The entire process took about twenty minutes and I left with new prescriptions for eyeglasses, contacts, a free pair of contact lenses, and a sample of contact solution. It was a great experience and I would certainly recommend it.

While my actual face time with Dr. Lister went very well, overall my experience at Envision was not good and I will never return. The wait time, though I'm sure unusual for that day, was too much. I was assured Iwould get out of the office at a certain time, as I had a meeting to get to, and I did not make it on time to that meeting due to how long I had to wait to be seen. The office is very stylish and I only wish they put more effort into their customer service rather than in their storefront. Everything reeks of being over priced and elitist. But I most disappointed with the service I received when reviewing my options for glasses. I am very attached my frames and had no desire to spend hundreds of dollars on frames I could get far cheaper online so I opted to just have new lenses put into my glasses. But nothing was explained to me. I kept having to ask questions about the process and had no idea when I was actually finished with the transaction. I asked about the process for new lenses and she explained that they would call me when the lenses come in, I'll drop off my frames for a few hours and then viola! have my new prescription lenses in my old frames. Four weeks later I was still waiting for the phone call... so I called them only to find out an order was never placed. I'm a grad student and I go back to school soon and I need my glasses. I am incredibly disappointed at the extreme oversight (pun intended) of their customer service. I will definitely be seeking a new optometrist office, not because of Dr. Lister, but because of Envision. I cannot recommend this business.

I was recommended to the office by a coworker. The office is very well organized from the booking, to checking in, to the examination, to shopping, and making payment. This was seamless and extremely open about pricing options and insurancecoverage. They also offer competitive pricing on contacts which was an unexpected bonus! I would highly recommend Dr. Lister as she was pleasant and professional. The entire appointment was under an hour which was perfect as I work in the area and was on my lunch break.

I thought she was very thorough and informative and she took the time to explain the different parts of the eye. There was also a way to dilate my eyes , without the after effect of blurry vision. When it wastime to pick a frame I was greeted by a wonderful vision expert; Emily. She gave me excellent choices and was very knowledgeable about each frame as well as honest about how she thought they looked on me. She was also curious about how often I would wear them as well as the tint ,color and protection options. In the end it was my choice, but I felt like I was given enough info and options to make the right choice for me.
