Honest and thorough. While my distance vision is not bad, he gave me the option for bi-focals, but allowed me to ultimately make the choice for my eye needs. For now I'm just sticking with over-the-counter reading glasses and will revisitthe bi-focal idea later--maybe in the winter time when I'm driving more at night.

The office storefront area was very small and somewhat uncomfortable when things got busy, but the staff and Dr. were great! Dr. Adair is very personable and easy to work with. The tests and exam went quickly, with good explanations alongthe way. I love my glasses and will continue to see Dr. Adair for years to come.

I enjoy Dr. Adair's demeanor. He is friendly and polite. I learn a lot about eye structure and the markers he is looking for in his analysis of my eye test results. While staying on schedule, he manages to calmly guideme through tests, explain details of what he is looking for, point out positive results in detailed photographic results, and chat about whatever.

New Era Eyecare in Clifton is great! Previously, they got me fitted with a new pair of eyeglasses; although the glasses didn't work at first, Dr. Adair persisted until we got the prescription just right. At today's visit, Dr. Adair gotme fitted with new and improved contact lenses--so pleased with better (distance) vision now! Dr. Adair & New Era are a great team to handle all my vision needs. Highly recommend this business!

DR Edwin Adair has recently installed the latest eye diagnostic machines that work accurately and fast. These provide the Doctor with the most informative, accurate detail about the patients eyes thru to the inner eye core and optic nerve itself.Very detailed! New Staff to welcome patients and perform management tasks and expert sales help plus more styles of frames and lens to choose from are great plus-ups.

After multiple years and multiple optometrists (3 different offices over 10 years time), I finally found THE ONE! I have known for almost 10 years I have a slight astigmatism, and have not been satisfied every year I get a newprescription, new glasses and new contacts. It is always slightly blurry because the other eye doctors I went to took short cuts and lazy ways of prescribing the same prescription for both eyes, or not addressing or testing my astigmatism. Today, I learned I am left eye dominant, with worse vision in my right eye as well as astigmatism in both eyes with the right eye slightly worse. Long story short and 2 different eye prescriptions later, I have near perfect vision with my new contact lenses! I CAN SEE ALMOST PERFECT AGAIN after 10 years of searching for the right prescription and the right doctor! Thank you to Dr. Edwin Adair in Clifton, Va for taking the time to do tests that I had never had done before, for my astigmatism, and for taking time to get to know my eyes. Your passion during this appt proves to me that I made the right switch!!

Dr. Adair is always very personable and professional. His front office staff is extremely friendly and his techs are the best in the business. This is a first-class facility that takes care of patients and offers great service as well asa reasonable amount of attention to affordability versus visual acuity. 4 of our 5 family members go here annually for eye exams and new lenses/ frames. Great selection of stylish frames for kids and adults, too!
