She was very willing to answer questions I had about issues I didn't understand, even on the President's Day holiday. Her office was clean and comfortable and it was overall a pleasant experience.

This was my first visit with Dr. Bridges and everything was great. She was patient and thorough and took her time answering my questions and giving me important information. She went over options with me very carefully and clearly and gaveme a wide range of personalized recommendations. The office support was excellent as well, everyone was really friendly and accommodating. The experience was a vast improvement from my previous vision center and I will definitely return!

Great visit. Came in for an annual eye exam, and to satisfy the DMV requirements for renewing my license. Little to no wait time, Dr Bridges was very helpful, knowledgeable, and thorough. Would def see again if needed.

Dr Erica was very straightforward and honest, told me “nice to have” options that weren’t necessary so I could be well informed and have all options on the table They also accommodated me coming early which was greatly appreciated

I wasn't visited by doctor Erica, maybe because it was a Saturday, but the doctor was still professional and dedicated.

While Dr. Bridges was fantastic - her office staff was awful. I stood with them for 30 minutes as they tried to convince me that my 2 different insurances didn't cover my annual visit. I felt as if I was beingscammed the entire time, without even purchasing glasses or contacts. I thought Dr. Bridges was professional and thorough, and am so disappointed by the insurance fiasco. I will not return!

Got right in, no wait time. Appt wasn’t rushed and Dr Bridges was very thorough. She listened to my challenges with reading and computer work and recommended occupational progressives. The lense specialist was also very helpful and they havea nice selection of frames. Explained all the charges thoroughly. Great find for anyone that works in or near the Empire State Building.
