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 is very 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.

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 of that 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!

The office is very clean and organized. The biggest negative was the wait time, but he was knowledgeable as was his staff. I could tell he had a great and genuine interest in providing top care. He also helped me navigate the insurance system, which was great. I would highly recommend him, especially to anyone who wears contacts.

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 other line 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.

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. He makes it fun to go to the eye doctor. Great selection of high end eye wear.

Dr. Compton is very professional and thorough, and explained everything to me very well. Really the best optometrist I've seen in NYC. I'd resigned myself to the dingy, tiny back-room optometrist offices that are so prevalent in this city, but Dr. Compton's office was a breath of fresh air. Clean and sleek, it really felt like a professional medical office. He has the technology to view your eyes without dilation, which is appreciated. His staff were very professional and pleasant. They and the doctor worked with my insurance to save me as much as possible. I booked a Friday late afternoon appointment, so I wasn't too surprised that there was a wait. It wasn't too terribly long, and the waiting area is nice. There is free bottled water available, which is a classy touch. Overall 5 star experience. I will be recommending his office to everyone.
