Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Catuncan is incredible. She takes the time to listen and address concerns. The front office staff is friendly and goes overboard to provide great service. After shopping a well-known retailer for glasses, I realized that Dr. Catuncan's office offered better prices and they offered to help find the best fit and best-looking glasses for me. They're honest and dependable. Dr. Catuncan and the whole office staff is first class.
Very professional and thorough! Would highly recommend her!!
The whole staff at First Eye Care Bedford are super friendly and always professional. YOU always come first and your needs attended to. I have been going to this location for many years and cannot speak highly enough.
The staff and Dr at First Eye Care Bedford are fantastic!!!
Dr. Catuncan is thorough and patient with explanations. She is pleasant and competent. I would recommend her without reservation for eye care.
Visit was pleasant. Front desk personnel were very nice. Did not wait too long. Pre test personnel was awesome. Doctor was very personable and pleasant. When the initial appt was over she helped me choose my main pair of frames since the other employees were busy and could not help me right away. I have found my new eye doctor. :-)
It was great they were patient and calm and not salesy and just laid back and soft spoken and kind
The entire staff was very professional, friendly & helpful. I would recommend her to anybody.
Very nice staff, Really liked Dr Catuncan. Only negative was waiting 25 min to be seen.
Dr. C., is the greatest. I have 2 boys, and 1 who is very active, she was so patient with him. I like how she didn't try and force me to get glasses for my boys, but recommended them and told me to just watch out for any changes in their vision. I ended up getting them, only because I know in the end, it would only benefit them. The selection of glasses for kids are stylish and affordable. Thanks Dr. C , and staff.
Dr. C is wonderful with me and both of my boys. I've been seeing her for 4 years now and she is always wonderful. Very friendly, very professional, fantastic staff and an excellent overall experience. I couldn't be happier and I hope she's in practice nearby for the next 20 or 30 years.
I was very pleased with both Dr. C and her entire staff. Everyone was very courteous and professional.
She is very friendly and presents things in a professional manner. If you get glasses, they do not try to sell you something that you don't need. Very nice experience overall!
She is very thorough. I like that and the fact that she is knowledgable and very personable.
Very nice, did not have any long waits. Everyone was real nice. Doctor answered all my questions.
Everyone is very friendly. I waited maybe 2 minutes before going back for the initial stuff and maybe 5 minutes after that to see the doctor. She's very thorough and professional and has a great chair side manner. Highly recommended!
Jennifer was great her assistant was friendly and listened to my concerns. I chose new frames I would have liked more help picking frames.

Dr. Cat uncanny was very professional, and attentive during my visit. The staff was very courteous and friendly.
She is the best eye doctor.
I like the way Dr. Catuncan and her staff explain things. Because I am a "curious" person, their explanations help me understand what is going on. When I ask "what is that for?" they explain. When want to know the hows & whys, they can explain. They don't mind answering at all. They make a wonderful effort to get a person in the office as soon as possible when there is something going on with the eyes, ie eye infections.
Definitely easy to drive past it if you don't know where you're going. Especially if you rely on GPS. Extremely friendly doctor and office staff. Availability of Saturday appointments also great. Not sure about the selection of glasses available however. Would definitely recommend.
She is always great & spends time with you for questions.

Dr Catuncan has always been very professional and efficient. My previous OD had given me a prescription that was over-correcting my vision.

I highly recommend her to my co-workers and many of them go to her now as well. She really knows what she is doing.

I have been going to the Bedford office since 2012 and I love the staff there! Everyone is so helpful and professional and they make the experience fun! My whole family goes there.
Dr. Catuncan was very sweet and patient. It didn't feel like she was rushing at all. The office had a very home like feel with snacks and treats galore. Also when I first arrived, I thought she was one of the receptionist or assitsants because, she was kneeling on the floor with a patient helping them pick a design for their frames. Great experience. I'll definitey return & reccomend others.
It went well. They were kind and helpful.

Dr. Catuncan cares about her patients. She goes above and beyond with her service and answers any and all questions. Best eye doctor around.
We had an emergency situation with my wife. She was having severe headaches and double vision in her left eye. We called her even though she was about to close. She said to come on in, that she would wait for us. She and her staff took additional time to assess the situation and order 2 test from Envision Imaging to help in complete diagnosis, Jennifer has been our Doctor for a number of years and has always been very professional and caring. She also took care of me when I had Shingles in my eye. She is the best in her field. I would highly recommend her for any eye problems you might have. Thanks again for all that you do.
Always a good experience. Very happy with her and all her staff. Highly Recommend.
Love Dr. Catuncan!!! She's amazing!
I came one day with eye problem and Doctor diagnosed me with eye allergies. I know that on the first visit it is hard to tell for sure the cause of the eyelid swelling. She was very attentive, gave me free samples of eye drops and the prescription for eyexream. Unfortunately, I eneded up with the infection. Definately not disdignosed but simply what my allergy developed into. I called for anothe appointment, they took me the same day. She took an immediate action with me, gave me bunch of samples, coupons and did not charge me anothe copay. This was very refreshing. I was willing to pay. She is truly care about her patients. She knows most of the by the name and takes a personal approach for all of her patients. Definately will recommend her.
Really appreciate Dr. C's knowledge, expertise and availability. Would highly recommend her services!!

Very impressed. She is the best!
I liked the doctor but a member of her staff made me feel uncomfortable. I felt mocked when trying to make a decision in ordering glasses and contact lenses. She seemed annoyed. I left without my order and asked later to have them fax my prescription so that I could place my order elsewhere. I don't normally have a problem driving out of my way to an office but here, I will not do it again for that treatment.
My family has gone to her for several years now. I always walk away having learned something about my eyes and how to care for them. She is friendly and kind but will also make sure you follow through on preventative measures.
