Go see Dr. Martin! Dr. Martin and the entire staff are super knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and patient. I went in for a routine eye check and to try out contacts for the first time. I have been too nervous to getcontacts for years but Dr. Martin made the whole process SO EASY. She explained everything to me, was super patient and made sure I was 100% comfortable with the type of contact and prescription before ordering. They also taught me everything I need to know about putting them in, handling, taking them out, etc. Also very convenient location, close to transportation.

Went to Dr. Martin at South End Eye to get contacts for the first time! They were so patient with me while they taught me how to put them in and take them out, and stayed with me the whole timedespite me being terrible at it and it taking forever. The office is very comfortable and doesn't feel like a "doctors office" which is really nice. Was seen immediately, barely any wait time at all.

It's always a pleasant visit, but also one where time and attention is spent to ensure that I get the best possible vision. This was just a contact re-check, but Dr. Laura spent the time to tweak the prescription ever soslightly to achieve better near vision. She's the best.

I hd an excellent set of visits with Doctor Martin to change my prescription to soft contact lenses. It took about two to three months for my eyes to readjust to normalcy, following my change from older hard contact lenses. Wewent through a series of for or five adjustments to re-aclimate my eyes to the proper prescription. Doctor Martin also helped me to adjust to a new method of introducing the contact lenses to my eyes.
