I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to get an annual eye exam. They were very professional , the wait time was very minimal, and they were able to assist me with getting my prescription for both my contacts and glasses with no hassle.

Great doctor. Explained the diagnosis very clearly and told me how to prevent the condition in future. He also gave me additional information about my general health based on routine tests he ran for my condition. This was a great valueadd to the overall experience. Doctor Jason is also very professional and has a pleasant personality. He was not in a hurry to get the session over with and move on to the next patient and ensured that I got the time and attention needed. His support staff was also very competent and professional.

Always a quick easy visit, but also always over 30 minutes to wait. The wait is worth it. I believe in supporting a community doctor who does so much in return for the community I would wait over an hour. Thank you for your work Dr. Compton!

Jason is an awesome doctor, his staff well informed and thorough, but they have to keep things moving and schedule patients better. The backlog of patients with 7 waiting in a small waiting area at one time is poor quality of the speed of otherwise impressive service.

I came to Compton for an eye exam and contact lense fitting. All of the personnel at the office were welcoming and professional. They were also helpful and accommodating to my financial situation. I would recommend this optometrist to others.

Had a great experience. The optometrist and people at the front desk were pleasant. The lady who helped me try on glasses was especially helpful. The only thing that was sub-par was that they read my insurance wrong and said Iwasn't eligible for items I was eligible for. I had to look up my plan online, show it to them, and they had to call my insurer to confirm my details. The problem ended up being resolved quickly, but be vigilant. Make sure to confirm your insurance information with them before you leave.

I met with Dr. Vaughn (or Von, not quite sure). He was very professional and took the time to go over all possible reasons for my eye condition. He made sure to book a follow up appointment to make sure treatmentwas proceeding accordingly. The front desk staff was amazing and made sure everything worked with my insurance. I would definitely recommend Dr. Compton and his staff in the future. Also my wait time in office was less than 10 minutes.

I love Dr. Compton and I loved his associate, much better than the assistant from last visit. I didn't really love his front desk staff, one just kept repeating his response to something, in attempt to get me to understand orchange my response, and the other just seemed disinterested in helping me. I do love Dr. Compton and think he's great!

The office is beautiful! The doctor and his student were amazing. I've been to offices further downtown where you assume the treatment is automatically exceptional. Well, that was certainly the case all the way up north in Inwood, in this doctor'soffice. He was kind, soft spoken, professional... The office staff was ok. And that was ok, too. Minimal interaction, anyway. The wait was to be desired. I left about 1.5 hour after I arrived on time. But isn't that expected nowadays? Not overly booked, which was great. Because sitting in a packed waiting room can make me anxious. There was maybe one other patient at any given moment sitting with me, rotating between the 4 being seen. I'm looking forward to my next visit! Thank you Dr Compton!

Clean, bright, pretty location. Front desk is helpful in comparing rates for contacts/glasses. Waited for 30 minutes as they got ready for the day- which threw me off a bit, but I’m a practice manager and run my own clinics,so, naturally i have to have an opinion. Great ‘bedside’ manner, glad i have a new doctor i can trust.

Mr. Compton is very knowledgeable and takes his time with his patients. He listen to your concerns and takes the time to address them, while also taking the time to listen to every single word you have to say. He isvery soft spoken, which I appreciated. He didn't make me feel like I was making up what I was experiencing. Some doctors have a habit of doing that. Thank you so much Dr. Compton. You and your staff are amazing and I would highly recommend.

Awesome doctor, office atmosphere and staff. Wouldn't trade him. A real boon for zocdoc because I would have never found him but for your website-- and I shudder to consider it. Been wearing specs since 4th grade - serious myopia. Hemakes it fun to go to the eye doctor. Great selection of high end eye wear.

Probably one of the best optometrist visit I've ever been too. I've been going since I was a kid and never had a thorough explanation of my vision or why the optometrist does what they do. Dr. Compton did all ofthat with a friendly demeanor. In addition to his beautifully and comfortably designed office featuring local artists' work, he also had a diverse and accommodating staff that were friendly and helpful in taking care of patient needs. Some Staff were also bilingual (Spanish), which is important considering the community in which the office sits. I'll definitely be back to this establishment!

I felt like the staff did not know about different types of insurances or billing for that matter, even though they accepted my insurance, I had to be the one to verify my insurance with the doctor office on the otherline and I had to spend the week up to my appointment getting call from Dr. Compton's office regarding my insurance. The Doctor was very nice and patience, he answered all my questions.

The office is very nice and has a spa-like quality and atmosphere to it with nice seating in the waiting area and even bottled water. The equipment is state of the art, both automated and manual, and includes a retina scanner,which Dr. Compton utilizes to assist in the management of patients like me who have diabetes. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Finally, Dr. Compton was great, thorough, and instilled confidence through his attention to detail, easy to understand explanations, and warm bedside manner. I will continue to utilize his services for my eye care needs and will be sending new patients to him as well.
