Dr. Crane and her staff are incredible! She answered all of my questions about my current vision, dry eyes, contacts, and corrective surgery options - which I’m considering to do in the future. She was very honest on her feedback/advice; youcan tell she truly cares about all of her patients. Additionally, her staff is so sweet and attentive. Kevin helped me picked the right pair of glasses and was extremely transparent/detailed about my insurance and payment options. Overall, I am extremely happy with my visit. I’m so glad I found Dr. Crane and her team ??

One word for Dr.Crane- The Best! Front desk staff is caring and helps a lot. I took my parents for their eye checkup here and they both were really happy with everything from bedside manner to how everyone in the staffwas helping and had a smile on their face. They were able to check our insurance in advance and helped us understand every detail about the coveragr. Dr.Crane is really sweet and knowledgeable. Thank you Dr.Crane and the staff. 6 out of 5 stars!

My visit with Dr. Crane and her staff could not have been any better. From the moment I walked in her staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful. After paperwork I met Dr. Crane who was just as great. I haven't beento an optometrist in a long time and, after having a few so-so experiences I decided I wanted to try a younger optometrist, which is why I picked Dr. Crane. All her technology is new and from the moment I sat down with her I could tell she knew what she was talking about. After spending about an hour getting all my tests done and interacting with every single one of the staff, I can say, with a complete confidence, that this is the most helpful and welcoming doctor's office I have ever been to. As long as Dr. Crane is in practice I will continue to visit her and her staff for my eye care...you should too!

While I didn't see Emily Crane due to an emergency she had to handle, the doctor I did meet with was wonderful. He was attentive, informative, and patient with me as I asked all my questions. Metropolitan Vision provided me withthe most positive experience with eye care I've ever received. I will definitely be a consistent patient.

There is no other optometrist in NYC I would recommend faster than Dr. Emily Crane. She was enthusiastic, friendly, compassionate, and extremely professional. Doctor visits as a whole cause me anxiety and stress, and on top of that fact, ithad been 4 years since my last eye exam. So I was a little nervous of what she would find with my vision. Dr. Crane went above and beyond to make me feel so comfortable throughout my exam - it was actually a pleasure to sit in her chair. Not only did she examine my eyes so meticulously, she went out of her way to explain to me her findings in full detail so that I would understand and feel at complete ease. Most importantly, she diagnosed me with an astigmatism in both eyes that explains why I have not been feeling fully comfortable with my current prescription. I am so happy I went to her. Dr. Crane is incredible. Highly recommend!!!!!

If I hadn't been 10 minutes late, Dr. Crane would've seen me right away, so that's my own fault and I didn't take any points away from the doctor for that. I was a couple minutes late to my first appointmentand had to fill out some paperwork before I could go in, but the front desk worker was friendly and patient. The office is clean and bright. Dr. Crane and her assistant made sure to wipe everything down before I touched it or put my face on it (and her eyedrop execution is quick and painless). She explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. She even gave me a free sample of eye drops for my dry eyes which I'm incredibly grateful for. And when it came to choosing frames, the assistant wasn't pushy and was very upfront about cost and insurance compatibility. Overall, I can't wait to go back next year for my annual eye exam because the service here was top-notch.

This has to be one of the most positive experiences I've ever had with a medical professional. Dr Crane is absolutely remarkable and clearly takes a genuine interest in informing you of everything she is reviewing. I will absolutely be backagain, she is a credit to her profession as is all of her staff.

She was lovely. It was truly a breathe of fresh air to get out of work to go to an eye appointment + be greeted by a young, female doctor - who had the calmest energy, mutual respect and friendly demeanor.I've been going to the eye doc since I was 12 and I don't think I've ever received the detailed information from my optometrist as I did with Emily. I will be back and my experience was A+.

Dr. Crane is fantastic! I was so pleased with my visit that I’m writing this less than an hour after leaving her office. She’s attentive, well-spoken and made me feel extremely comfortable and confident in everything she told me. She alsopaid particular attention to my family medical history and made sure to go over any potential risk factors I may have because of it. I felt like she genuinely cared about my vision and well-being. Her staff is also wonderful, super professional and didn’t try to upsell me frames not covered by my insurance like most offices do. Would highly recommend!

Let me start by saying i am a challenging patient. This team knows what they are doing - putting me at ease, comforting me and educating me throughout the exam- while conducting what I would describe as the most thorough, detailoriented medical eye exam. This is not your typical optical or eye exam. The level of care and explanation goes above and beyond. The executive medical team behind this operation has created a next generation experience to be had by everyone - that has eyes. This medical office -legitimately and without equivocation serves to better the health of your eyes.

Emily and her staff were great. They were very attentive the entire time of my visit. I didn't have to wait at all when I got there, despite being 10 minutes late myself. Her staff were all so kind and helpfulwalking me through my paperwork as a first time patient and they answered all of my questions as I ordered new contacts. Emily was very thorough with her exam and spent a lot of time explaining things to me and making sure all of my questions were answered. She was so nice and knowledgable and clearly cares about her patients.
