I really enjoyed my appointment. I was seen quickly and the technology utilized for both the preventative care and exam room were state of the art. On top of that Dr. Hatton is amazing! She made an effort to know meas a person not just a patient, and took her time to make sure I was in the right prescription which is something other eye doctors skimp on.

The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The facility is beautiful, and I loved all of the updated technology. I feel that this is definitely the most in depth eye exam that I've had. The physician spent a lot oftime with me making sure the prescription was perfect. Everyone was helpful, and they did all apologize for the long wait. I was fitted for my glasses prior to the exam since they were backed up, which I did appreciate! My appointment was at 3:30, and I did not leave until 5:15. However, everyone was helpful and I would recommend!

Dr. Hatton and her staff are wonderful! They're welcoming and organized, and provide great care with all the latest and greatest technologies. That terrifying puffy thing - you don't have to do it! Dr. Hatton also walked me through these awesomeretinal images they took of my eyes and sent me home with two types of contacts to test. Parking is easy - they have reserved spots - and they saw me right away. So happy I booked with them! FYI: They're right next door to Mint dentistry. If I'd known, I would have knocked out my dentist appointment as well (assuming they're well reviewed. Haven't been to Mint personally...)

I had a really bad experience when I went in for my eye exam and to buy my eyeglasses. The eye exam was OK although I disagree with the machine they use to find the shape of your eye. It givesof a bright light, so you blink and the machine reads the Wong size. I than went too get my glasses and then I got RIPED OFF they put in the order for the new lines and they just told me what kind I needed and did not talk to me about them. I didn't need the ones they order for me. They made me believe that I needed the expensive lines and that I looked good in the glasses they picked for me. They lied to me three times. Victoria got me most of my money back ànd they redid my exam. I thought it was strange they asked for my insurance, because they don't cover eye exam. Thank you Victoria

Everyone I spoke with in the office was extremely friendly and easy to talk to. Dr. Linda Fain Hatton explained my test results thoroughly and answered any questions I had. I never felt rushed like I have at other offices. Theyeven picked out a number of frames for me to try on and helped me pick out the right pair for me. I highly recommend visiting her and have already recommended her to friends and family in the area!

Stay away from the young lady there who sales the frames. I was quoted an ungodly amount for a pair of glasses. REALLY!!! Then she told me, "Your insurance will pay most of it." REALLY!!! She insulted my intelligence, then toldme, "You get what you pay for." REALLY!!! Dr. Fain was exceptional however.

I was very disappointed in the services provided by Optix Eyecare. I felt that everyone was more concerned with trying to sell me expensive glasses and contacts that my eye sight was overlooked. When my glasses came in, I tried themon and said that I couldn't see out of them. They told me I would get use to it. I ended up having to go back and have my eyes re-checked, because I was given the wrong prescription in both my contacts and glasses. I was told I would not have to pay for a full eye examination, only a contact fitting. I ended paying in full for the examination. It was a very frustrating and expensive experience.

I had stopped going to her office because I moved away, but now that I am back in Dallas proper, I had to come back! I really like Dr. Hatton. She's wonderful to talk to and fun! I am a littleunsure about the girl doing her "pre-exam". She just assumed I knew what to do and wasn't explaining things with the machines. She seemed to be rushing. By no means was she rude, just one of those situations where she's so used to doing it that she missed a couple steps assuming I would know without any instruction. Struck me as odd. At any rate, great selection of very nice glasses and I will be back!
