Dr. Chretien and his team are literally the "Best in Atlanta". When it comes to exceptional customer service and quality of care - I can't stop the compliments. Not only is Dr. Chretien thorough and thoughtful, his staff is always pleasant and attentive (and fun). I always feel comfortable during my visits as he goes above and beyond the typical clinical "follow-up" visit. I truly wish I could find a PCP like Dr. Chretien - he's truly one of a kind.

- I've been here twice and absolutely love it. - Dr. Jay is the most brilliant optometrist I've ever been to. Him and his staff are extremely knowledgeable. - They answer all my questions and explain everything in a meaningful, understandable way. You can tell they love to learn and really know what they're talking about. - I leave every time excited about what I've learned. For example: did you know your pupil is sphincter muscle?! - Dr. Jay also explained that a lower screen refresh rate on your computer can cause eye strain - and he explained why! .. AND he showed me how to change it! (The higher refresh rate, the better. Over 60hz is preferable - Thank you Dr. Jay!) - Dr. Jay and his staff at In Focus Eye Center are polite, kind, knowledgeable, and can have you in and out quickly.

Dr. Jay is always laid back and fosters a relaxed atmosphere. He's always willing to explain the technical aspects of eye health and what's going on with your vision. Every time I see him I learn something about eye health (e.g. how eclipses damage vision).

I have had 3 yearly exams so far and have gotten prescriptions for glasses and started using monthly contacts. Everyone at the office is very helpful, friendly and smart. I always feel that I am getting accurate and honest information about the state of my eyesight and what products to use. Dr. Chretien is very knowledgable and takes the time to explain exam results and answer any questions. Logistical advice - Inman park is a popular area, so I would suggest having some time to get a parking spot if your appointment is after 5pm.

Best vision check up I've ever had! Dr. Chretein took plenty of time to explain his process and my diagnosis. Never rushed, he took as much time as needed to make sure I was comfortable and fully informed as to why I needed new contacts. He expressed personal commitment to making sure I was being proactive about my health and not reactive. Recommend 100%. The staff was also super polite and efficient.

I see Dr. Chretian and just started my 13 year old with In Focus as well. He is equally as great with my old eyes as he was with her young ones. Staff is so helpful and friendly. Every step of the way was explained and easy. Can't recommend Dr Jay and In Focus Eye Center highly enough

I have been driving from Cobb County to see Dr. Jay for 3 years now, and tell everyone I know how great he is. He is never rushed, answers all my silly questions, and obviously cares about his patients' well-being. His exams are thorough, and he explains each step along the way. Pricing is comparable and selection of frames is good. In addition, his office staff are well-trained, pleasant, and informative. Not only is this a great office, they play good music as well!

I have been seeing Dr. Chretien for three years. He is a fantastic doctor who takes the time to explain things in a way that is easy to understand. He is funny as well and quick to help talk through any concerns. His staff is also ALWAYS happy. They are actually so happy and pleasant that it's confusing...Sort of kidding on that part. It is a delight. In Focus Eye is how all healthcare places should be - I wish they did primary care.

I used to drive to TN for eye exams but finally made the switch because of different insurance. Dr. Chretien was very friendly and so was everyone else that worked there. I've been wearing the wrong prescription for over a year now, and he was very thorough in the exam and explained what was wrong (3 extra prisms!) and how we were going to move forward. Also, picking lenses is the fun part, but I have a tough time making decisions and eventually get frustrated. The guy who helped me was patient, gave feedback when asked, and I'm excited to get cute frames with the write 'script! Also, the frames were pretty affordable, and I was able to add transition lenses with scratch resistant stuff within my budget. I'm so happy to have found a place in Atlanta I'll return to.
