Quite an exorbitant fee for "contact fitting" seems a little unfair considering nothing changed about the prescription I've had for years, and contacts I've had no problem with.

I suffered a head injury and was worried about my eye. Eliot has all the machines to measure every aspect of ocular health and he knows what he's doing. He was extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and reassuring. I go to him formy exam and my lenses and he's just excellent -- the best optometrist I've ever met.

My 4 yr old son has a great experience for his first eye exam. He wanted to talk about the "games" he played all day. Dr. Kaplan was very informative.

Dr. Kaplan (and his assistant!) make vision care and wear shopping a most pleasurable experience. They both connect with the client and take their time with the process. I left the place with the feeling that I made the right choice- again. My husband is coming back too. Thank you for another good visit!

Very nice visit. Easy to get along with, clear communication, Nice office, good choice of frames, all things good here so far.

Eliot Kaplan is very sincere and professional. He provides helpful advice and I will continue to provide business to him. His prices are very reasonable - even though I was limited with my personal funds - I would have liked topurchase a lot more to help promote his business!
