Great doctor, fast and friendly staff. The only thing I think could be improved is to have more frame varieties for men, I found that a majority of the frames were for women.

Dr. Lao was awesome! He took care of what I needed in my first visit here from an eye exam to a contacts fitting with quality recommendations. The office staff was superb as well with signing me in, completing a portionof the eye exam, and ordering me a new pair of glasses with special lenses that compliment my lifestyle. The wait wasn't long, and I was out of there in less than 45 minutes. A stellar staff with an aesthetically pleasing, clean office warrants a tremendous recommendation!

Been going to optic gallery for 3 years now. Zach started seeing Dr. Lao in July 2015, for vision therapy sessions, and goes back every year for his annual checkup. I have also started going myself. He prides himself in seeinghow Zach is doing, how his vision has improved, how the therapy has helped him and to work with Zach to keep it that way. If I ever need to take him for followup sessions, or any vision needs I definitely will be going here! I don't live closest to this location, but its worth the drive to know hes getting the attention needed. Definitely worth it!

Joseph Lao was an amazing eye doctor he made my daughters experience so great . My daughter was apprehensive about the exam but he took away her fears and even gave her stuffed animal an eye exam as well!. He tookthe time to explain to my child what the different eye instruments were and not to be scared. He was phenomenal and I will definelt recommend him to my friends!
