Awesome! Explained everything, kept me informed, easy personalities, and thorough.
Beautiful establishment with good energy.
Great visit. They were very friendly and professional.
Great experience. Highly recommend. Got my new contacts very easy.
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 or change my response, and the other just seemed disinterested in helping me. I do love Dr. Compton and think he's great!
It was a great experience. Staff was great! Doctor answered all my questions. Would definitely recommend to everyone.
"I had a wonderful experience at Dr. Jason Compton office. The entire staff was extremely helpfuland they went up above & beyond to ensure I was comfortable at every appointment! The professionalism that was displayed is second to none. I will recommend Dr. Jason Compton to everyone and anyone who needs future eye care. Thank you Dr Jason Compton and staff for all that you do to make all of us see the world through a much clearer lens!!!
Amazing customer service !!!!!
A comfortable and friendly atmosphere; everyone was polite and helpful; state of the art equipment; comprehensive exam and step by step explanation. Excellent facility!
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's office. 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!
He was very thorough and explained everything to me he was wonderful
Very personable staff! Excellent with kids!
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.
Everything was perfect! The doctor took the time with my to explain everything.
Great! Clean office, nice people. A little bit of a long wait, the whole appointment was about an hour, but nothing felt rushed. Pricing and insurance information wasn't super clear, but it never is!
Got there at 10 am for my 10 am appointment. 2 other people walked in and said their appointments were also at 10. both of them were seen before me. I wasnt seen until 11. receptionists had attitude and didnt seem interested in helping me
Best Doctor ever really recommend him ! He very patient and very understanding !!
Great practice. Beautiful space, professional staff.
Couldn't have been more pleased.
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!

Excellent service. Friendly and professional environment.
Felt like I was being sold something I didn't really need but for the most part it was cool
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.
Dr. Compton is great. Offices are clean. The wait was not long at all. Highly recommended.
It was great! Everyone was nice and the office was clean.
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.
Very friendly, professional, and informative.
I thought he was very helpful and precise he answered all the questions I had, I would definitely recommend him.

It was my first time going to Dr. Compton and the experience was great. The staff was very nice and the doctor and his assistant explained everything very clearly. Will definitely go back there for my next annual exam.
The good doctor found a resolution to a long time contact fitting issue and made for great conversation the whole time. Couldn't recommend him and his team enough.

Great. They were organized, clean and upfront with pricing. Dr. Compton was fantastic. His explanations were clear, he's clearly very competent and easy to talk to. I will be going back, and I would totally recommend this to anyone.
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 and his team were extremely nice and helpful. Dr. Compton was extremely knowledgable, which I appreciated!
Excellent office and service, will definitely recommend to friends and family.

This office is very good, I searched for wheelchair friendly office and Dr. Compton and staff went out of their way to provide service. Lynn C,
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.
Front desk receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. Physician was very professional, knowledgeable, and comforting. Overall experience was great.
He was absolutely AMAZING and he LISTENED, which is all I ask of any doctor.. I wasn't rushed through the process??
Everyone was extremely nice. The doctor was very professional and quick. It was a fast appointment and beautiful office.
I loved it. Very new and clean. Best in the neighborhood definetly.
Dr. Compton is awesome. Him and his staff explain everything thoroughly and answer any questions you may have. Very personable and excellent bedside manner
The office is lovely and the staff was very pleasant and Knowledgable. Will definitely visit this office again.
Bar none, in attention, knowledgeable, patient care. I have a very high index prescription. I was assisted with multi focal glasses and contacts. I felt my head bulge with information when I left, I looked great in my new glasses, and felt like my eyes had been thoroughly checked by his state of the art equipment and expertise. Even though his office was full of other patients, he and his staff lavished me with attention. Awesome office décor, painting and jazz. Great environment and attentive staff. They're all terribly good looking too! It's a done deal. I will never go anywhere else. Thanks ZocDoc!!
Very knowledgeable and professional, both qualities I appreciate.
I appreciate how personal he was, and how willing he was to help me get the best product I could, at minimal cost to me. He seems to genuinely enjoy his job. Five stars in my book.
Really an ideal appointment -- the office was welcoming and calm, with a very short wait time, and Dr. Compton and the whole staff were extremely professional and kind. Absolutely no complaints, highly recommended!
My appointment with Dr. Compton was great. He is super friendly and professional, and resolved my issue in one visit. The office is nicer than it needs to be. A great addition to the neighborhood. Hope he will stay in business for many years to come. I have already recommended him to my boyfriend and my mother.
Dr. Compton SUPER ROCKS!!! His office was super clean and inviting. He was super patient and gentle with me and all of my questions. His selection of frames were superior...of them were of quality and stylish. He was beyond patient with me during the selection of my frames and laughed at all of my enthusiasm and jokes. Through him and his team's expertise, I was able to select my first pair of RayBans and Prada frames for such a good value. Can't wait to go back and recommend his practice.
I had a great experience with Dr. Compton. He was warm and welcoming, as were his staff. They all made my son feel very comfortable and I'm looking forward to his service.
Surprisingly it was very good.... The waiting time was less than 10 minutes!!! (Even thought I was about 35 minutes late arriving to the appointment !!!????
He is perfect .Sharp and to the point.easy going and listen to you.
Very personable and patient. Excellent manners. Highly recommended.
Everyone in the office was very polite and professional. More than happy to answer any questions I had.
I had a great time seeing Doctor Compton.
Staff was courteous.
My appointment was on a Saturday morning (just the fact that they're open on Saturday's in convenient so thumbs up to that), and I was attended to right away because the office was empty. I got a routine eye exam for some blurriness that I was experiencing and ended up getting a prescription for reading glasses. Overall, it's a cool office. Nice decorations, nice area, great staff and a great OD.
The doctor was very knowledgeable, personable and approachable. He did not seem rushed or put-off by my visit, as so many doctor's do. I was curious about my condition and things I didn't understand and he patiently and thoroughly explained everything to me. He actually seemed enthusiastic about his job, even though this was late afternoon/early evening! Much appreciated and highly recommended. Thanks!
The staff and doctor were really nice. They made you feel comfortable and explain what's beig done. They don't ignore you and make you wait around just because like other places.
I had originally made an appointment with another eye Dr. nearby who told me I needed to go to the emergency eye center as soon as possible. When I arrived at the center they said they would be unable to see me that day. I was quite nervous and found Dr. Compton's office accidentally. Even though he was about to close he remained open and his staff ran a series of tests and determined the problem. I was able to order my glasses during that visit even though his office was supposed to be closed nearly an hour previously. He is one of the few physicians that I've encountered that really go the extra mile and I am grateful for his assistance!
He and his assistant made me feel very comfortable. They were both very nice, professional and thorough. I would highly recommend them!
He's a great doctor who's willing to explain any issues you might have. And not to bad on the eyes no pun intended!
They were very nice. Dr. Compton seems well educated and informed me of everything that was happening.
Awesome! Really cool guy.
I had a great visit and loved that Dr. Compton took the time to explain what he was doing and why. Since the practice is new, the team is still working out the flow, but their sincerity and kindness made up for any confusion they had. I especially appreciated that when someone wasn't sure how to answer my question, they took the time to find out the answer and made sure I completely understood my insurance and my payments. I loved that I could fill out my medical forms on ZocDoc for this doctor as well.
Dr. Compton is highly rated for a reason! It is evident that he loves his work and genuinely cares about his patients' eye health. My eye exam was very thorough, complete with dilation and visual field testing. Dr. Compton educated me about my prescription, happily putting otherwise dense jargon into layman's terms with illustrations (this is NOT a doctor who is allergic to questions so ask away!). For my eye irritation/dryness, he gave me a few samples to try out along with prescriptions should I like the products. The office was clean with modern decor, the latest technology and a pretty good inventory of fashion-forward frames (e.g., Tom Ford, Hugo Boss, etc.). The technicians are darlings. Overall, it was a great visit. I will definitely recommend Dr. Compton to my friends and colleagues!
