Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Sohn was very patient. She took the time to see how my prescription has changed since my last visit and did not rush into prescribing me the same contact lenses. She had amazing bedside manners and was very knowledgable.
I don’t feel comfortable with the results of the eye exam. She stated that I wasn’t a candidate for contacts that maybe in the future but in my previous eye exams that I get every year the doctors have gave me the option to get contacts. This is my first eye doctor in New York not sure if I will be returning or referring anyone here.
Very quick, informative and friendly service! I was in and out in about 25-30 minutes.
Very professional, highly informative. I would recommend her to anyone who asked.
Dr. Sohn is professional, efficent, and my visit went well.
The doctor exams precisely and explains clearly. Other employees are also professional.
Jordan was exceptional. Doc was great I haven't gotten glasses yet
Excellent doctor. Proficient, knowledgeable and does the right thing for the client. (Doesn't try to push sale of glasses or contacts). Highly respectable and would definitely recommend. Thank you doc!
i would not normally go to an eye glass store to see an eye doctor. but she is great.
The Dr. is on point, great with understanding the patients needs and making recommendations on that.
This was my first eye exam in the U.S. so I was a bit nervous about the process, but Dr. Sohn was great! She was really patient with any questions that I have; really excellent bedside manner and a really smooth process to get all exams needed done. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Sohn was great to work with, very friendly, gave great information. Office was pleasant as well.
She gave me a quick and thorough exam while also providing me with new, useful tips. Her assistant was very helpful when I was picking out new glasses.
Everyone was very nice and I felt cared for!
I really liked my visit with Dr. Sohn. She was very personable, well informed, asked a lot of questions and took her time with me. She made me feel very comfortable.

Dr. Sohn was excellent. Very pleasant and also very thorough. Highly recommend Grand Central Optical, and especially Dr. Sohn.
She was nice and very thorough.
Dr. Sohn was very competent and professional. However there was some confusion about taking my Medicare amongst the other staff, in the end they figured out that they took that insurance after all.
Very kind and knowledgeable.
Very approachable and easy to talk to! Quick to the point as well. I highly recommend Dr. Sohn to anyone.
Very nice Dr. !
Dr. Mijin is thorough and personable. I enjoy my visits with her.
She was very thorough during my eye exam. I highly recommended her.
Dr. Sohn and the team were extremely professional and took care of everything in a timely fashion. Would recommend the group to anyone who needs glasses or an appointment.
Expensive for someone with aetna insurance.
Dr. Sohn was great. Her office staff isn't the most professional, but she is great.
Dr Sohn was great - very friendly and quick. But also very knowledgeable.
Office was extremely loud. Long wait time. Left wanting to get a second opinion. Would only recommend based on convenience because its right next to my office.
Happy with the service, though I did ask her why a certain test was done 3x and she never answered, so I let it go. 0 wait time though which always leaves me a happy customer.
She is very professional, and did a good examen. I would visit Dr Mijin again. I would suggest to the counter people to be more agreeable.
I had a great experience. The staff helped me pick out the best frames while I waited to meet with Dr. Mijin, and she was very informative about my eyes, what kind of products I need to stick to and potential health issues.
Good, I appreciate it.
Very pleasurable and informative regarding my current status.
Quick and efficient appointment. No hassle.
She's very friendly, courteous and professional.
Both Dr. Sohn and the entire staff were friendly and pleasant. They answered all of my questions about contact lenses. I'm a new wearer, so they also showed me how to insert and remove the lenses and made sure I was able to do so on my own before I left that same day. Thank you so much!
They were fast, professional and identified an astigmatism I didn't even know I had. I can see everything much sharper now. Pretty damn good.
Dr. Sohn was prompt, courteous and professional. Would definitely recommend her for those looking for an eye doctor.
I hadn't had an eye exam for as long as I could remember so I really had no idea what to expect. I showed up a half hour before my appointment and they took me right away. All members of the staff that greeted me were extremely friendly. Check in was painless and not the countless forms you usually expect when visiting a doctors office (especially for the first time). Dr. Sohn was so friendly, knowledgable, and patient. After the exam the employees at the counter were very helpful and patient with me picking out my new frames. I highly recommend Dr. Sohn and all staff members at GCT Optical.
The doctor was really professionnal, I recommend her.
I had a great experience with Dr. Sohn. She and her staff were extremely friendly and efficient.
My eye prob was driving me crazy - Dr. Sohn figured out the issue right away and the med she prescribed was immediate relief. Definitely recommend!
She was very friendly and professional.
Maybe she was having an off day. It wasn't helpful appointment. I guess i was expected to buy glasses from the store. I was looking to meet with the doctor. Get an eye exam. When i said I would not be purchasing glasses i was dismissed. I had to remind the store clerk for my prescription. i think it should be clear that this is a store front as opposed to a regular eye exam doctor.
Her staff was very attentive and the location is great!
She was excellent!
Dr. Sohn's visit was very brief.
I appreciated her attention to detail. I felt confident in her diagnosis.
Great dr. No wait at all. Its inside a frames and glasses store which is probably normal but I thought it was a little strange but great dr
All my questions were answered and it was a very thorough exam. Great visit!
It was very educational because I was going with contacts for the first time and the they helped me in putting them in and off awesome staff and doctor.. Now I can get shades..
Personable and honest.
My visit has been a terrible experience. She is totally unprofessional, impatient and rude, and she acts like I am wasting her time by asking questions and start raising her voice and give me attitude. Totally ridiculous. Definitely will not be back!
She was professional and efficient.
Really helpful. Entire staff was friendly and willing to answer any questions.
She was extremely honest and knowledgeable , I really appreciate that . I recommend her to everyone. Her and the rest of her staff are awesome. Grand Central Opticial would defintely be my first choice from now on. They are great !!!
Very bare bones examination. Good if you're confident in your vision and the health of your eyes, or if you're just trying to get a new prescription for glasses/contacts, but I would not reccomend coming here with serious medical concerns.
Outstanding and attentive! A great experience!
I was just going in for a check up and was very satisfied. I had to wait a little while but not too long and the location was very convenient.
She was pleasant, knowledgeable and quick but not in a make you feel you're being rushed out of there sort of way. I would definitely recommend.
Dr. Sohn has a warm, professional demeanor and is always willing to answer questions and take time to explain all options to her patients. The hours are convenient and the rest of the staff are cordial and professional as well.
Dr Sohn is fast, thorough, and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Sohn was quick and informative. I found her manner very pleasant and attentive.
Great. Book her if you need an eye doctor.
I am so glad I came back to this office, they are great.
Went to see Dr. Mijin Sohn for an eye exam checkup and new order of contacts. I've been going to Dr. Sohn for over 5 years and its easy and painless and takes less than 20 mins for your whole visit.
I chose this location/doctor based on the good reviews, but was not impressed. I made an 8:30 am appointment so I could go straight to work afterwards an not be late. I made sure to leave my apartment with time to get there early- I got there at 8:15. Doctor didn't stroll in until 8:40! I do realize I was early and I am not taking that time into account, but I respected the office/doctor's time to make it there not only on time but early... she didn't even apologize for being late. To top it off, while I sat around waiting the employees were having a totally inappropriate conversation... I realize I was the only customer/patient in there, but the conversation they were having was unprofessional. The package for contacts was not explained very well and given my overall experience I decided to buy my contacts elsewhere.
Dr Sohn was fast and efficient. Grand Central Optical has a big selection of glasses but it's all variations of the same look.
She was very nice and thorough
She was wonderful explained everything answered all questions listened to what I had to say very sweet doctor
It was excellent she explained everything very kind courteous and professional
She explained things very well and was very efficient. The whole office was efficient and in fact I have new glasses after only one day!
Dr. Sohn is the best. Very friendly, she listens and is thorough and calm.
In and Out super quick and the selection of frames were amazing!!!
She's very nice and easy to deal with.
Great experience, doctor Sohn was very professional and answered all of my questions and concerns.
She was very nice and professional.
She knew much more than many before her- which is a good thing. Im pleased.
Quick visit. In and out within 20 minutes and no waiting.
Was very quick and efficient but almost seemed rushed.
I really just made the appointment to see about which type of contacts would be best for my eyes and I found the doctor to be incredibly condescending and rude. I had been to two other doctors a few weeks before upstate and she would ask me what they said, but then just laugh at me when I explained. I never write reviews but I really felt like she was rude for absolutely no reason, I just wanted to be in and out, I had easy questions and it turned out to be a hassle. I wouldn't recommend her.
Mijin Sohn was efficient and professional. Office staff were very unprofessional and rude. They also charged me the incorrect amount, and were adamant that they were right despite being told repeatedly from my insurance that I should be charged lesser amount.
Dr. is polite and competant. In store staff is very friendly and doesn't push more expensive frames and glasses on you.
Per usual, I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Sohn. She was very sweet, thorough and professional. However, I thought the receptionist was unprofessional. I sent my information ahead of time via ZocDoc to avoid any wait or confusion. She asked for my name and phone number again, when it was already in front of her. Then she told me to have a seat and minutes later, she asked for the last four digits of my SSN across the room with other people in the room. I was not happy with her customer service.
She was very professional and thorough. I was happy that there was no wait to see her.
It was great! The doctor and staff were very helpful!
Dr. Sohn was very nice and through. She was very patient while I asked a bunch of questions about my new prescriptions, and answered them very thoroughly. It was a very positive experience.
Very fast and friendly!
Dr. Sohn was great! I haven't been to the eye doctor in a couple years and wanted to try contacts, which I've never had before. She explained astigmatism to me when I asked more about it and she discussed the different contact options. I never felt rushed. Her staff was also really helpful in training me in how to use the contacts (and very patient! It took me quite a few tries to get them in). Although I didn't get glasses they seemed to have a ton of different options. Great experience.
Dr. Sohn was very courteous and professional. I was seen immediately and the appointment thorough yet fast.
Very quick and kind
For someone with great vision, eye doctor visits should be uncomplicated and efficient. Dr. Sohn was both. Would recommend.
Really thorough and very professional. I would come back again.
Such a pleasant experience. She was knowledgeable and very helpful. Didn't make me feel like she was rushing at all, even though the appointment was so efficient.
Best eye exam I've had. Thorough, took her time, and clearly knows her field. The retail desk offered to sell me contacts, but they weren't pushy as they can be at other places.
Awesome doctor, very friendly and professional!
Great! Very nice, efficient, and knowledgeable.
Super fast, super professional, excellent service
Punctual and efficient.
I can't recommend Dr. Sohn enough. This has to be one of the best doctor's appointments I have ever had.
The visit was good, but the glasses that she prescribed I had to go back several times trying to change the lense. I was not happy about the prescription she prescribed for me I had to change it twice
Very nice visit- Excellent eye exam.
Overall it was a very pleasant, easy experience. The doctor finished up with one patient and took me straight after. I have a straightforward prescription so I was in and out in less than 15 minutes.
Everyone was excellent when I came in.
Kudos! The only doctor that figured out I had the wrong prescription! Thanks for taking the time to get it right!
She is thorough.
Efficient and nice. Staff was knowledgable and able to help me make decisions that were aligned with my insurance and budget.
Efficient, nice and courteous doctor.
She's the best! Only eye doctor I will go to.
She was timely, pleasant, and professional--all that I'd ask for.
She was thorough, courteous, and very professional. Would highly recommend her.

I found Dr. Sohn to be very professional. No complaints at all.
Dr. Sohn was very pleasant and I would definitely recommend her. Its really convenient for people who work near Grand Central. Very short wait time and staff was friendly.
She was not too friendly. When I told her I had an issue with my eye aching she refused to believe me. If no other option, then ok to go here. Else keep looking
She is professional but personable. Friendly and knows her stuff.
Came here for an eye exam to renew my NYS DL. I waited less than 5 minutes for my exam. My eye exam took 5-10 minutes as well. Dr. Sohn was very professional. Very convenient location in Grand Central (I work across the street) so the whole process took me only 15-20 minutes.
She's extremely knowledgeable and precise
She's very nice and takes the time to talk with you and answer your questions. She's sweet, not overly warm, but not cold either. Her Grand Central office is in a great location if you have to travel through Grand Central during your commute. They also have a solid selection of designer and non-designer glasses.
Dr. Sohn was efficient and satisfactory. However the front office at Grand Central Optical was slightly unprofessional and loud.
Excellent doctor! Very nice and thorough. Happy to answer all questions I had. Have been seeing her for a couple of years and will continue to do so.
She was very professional and listened to my concerns and took her time to address everything.
Dr. Sohn is very knowledgeable and quick. The office is in a convenient location (Lexington Passage of Grand Central).
Good service, professional care.
Runs a very tight ship. In and out in no time. Very professional and efficient.
Wonderful doctor. Took her time and made me feel comfortable.
Excellent and warm bedside manner. Really listened to my complaints and addressed them thoroughly.
Dr Sohn was great. She did a great job and she was very, very efficient. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a vision test for contacts or glasses. I had a good experience with her. That said, the service from the other staff at the store was not particularly friendly and I felt pressured to purchase contacts and/or glasses from them. I also asked for a PD measurement and the sales people seemed very unhappy that they had to take a second to do that for me.
It is good and efficient.
These folks DEFINITELY knew what they were doing. They were ready the minute I got there, and I only waited about two minutes before my eye exam. Dr. Sohn is softspoken, sweet, and efficient. I think I made the right choice!
Wonderful very quick.
Great and efficient
Dr. Sohn was attentive, patient, and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with her and will definitely be going back for my annual eye check up.
Excellent; great and timely service.
Very quick visit, only went in for a quick glaucoma screening and prescription update. Very knowledgeable, and the whole thing took only 20 minutes (including wait AND evaluation) - perfect for NYC!
Excellent doctor and a very nice, convenient location.
I had a great visit with Dr. Sohn. She was professional, approachable and thorough. I will visit her again!
I had to wait just a bit past my appointment - they appear to be booked pretty tightly together - but not too long. It gave me time to check out frames and notice that the people behind the counter didn't try to show me only the really expensive ones. Dr. Sohn was quick but never rushed and was attentive and thorough. Simple and exactly what was needed.
She was not particularly likeable and didn't seem particularly thorough
Very knowledgable and professional.
Dr Sohn was ok I wouldnt say she was bad. I felt a little rushed during the eye exam. I felt she could have done a better job at throughly explain the current condition of my eyesight.
All involved were very friendly. I highly recommend them.
Made me feel comfortable, and explained everything to me.
Dr. Sohn was great and her staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Great visit. Very impressed!

Great service. Quick and very efficient. I was in and out in a half hour. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Sohn is terrific; attentive, thorough and empathetic. I highly recommend her.
she was very thorough, explained results of examination very well.
Small office located conveniently in the Lexington Passage of Grand Central. Dr. Sohn was thorough and explained everything clearly.
It was good and informative for me
friendly and professional service; effortless visit; overall very good experience
She was pretty professional, but forgot to give me a copy of prescription for my record after eye examination.
It was fine. Got the exam I needed to get a new prescription, except no surprise, it was the same prescription as last year, so she didn't have to do much. She was friendly enough, but nothing special. Store is definitely aimed at more high-end fashion types.
Wonderful to talk to -- answered all of my questions and got me the exactly what I needed and more. Definitely going back!
Highly recommend Dr. Sohn. Super convenient mid-town location and very friendly staff. Will definitely return for my next annual check-up.
In and out of the doctor's office in less than 20 minutes, with no dilation recovery time. Amazing!
Dr. Sohn was very kind and spent ample time examining my eyes. I'll definitely go back to her!

I thought she was great! Really thorough and answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend her!
Great doctor! Very professional.
She was really sweet and thorough!
Dr. Mijin Sohn is patient and takes the time to explain things thoroughly. My contact lens consultant/trainer was exceptionally encouraging and supportive as well. On top of that, Grand Central Optical has great frames and everyone there is extremely helpful. I cannot imagine going to a different doctor or store.
She was great!!!
Appointment was quick but thorough. They did all the insurance work for me when there was a glitch. All the personnel were great, and Dr. Mijin Sohn was perfectly professional and personable. Great service overall. No complaints.
Efficient and fast.
Staff in her office were pretty unprofessional. 15 min wait. Doctor was fine, but not sure I'd go back.
Professional, thorough, and pleasant.
Dr. Sohn is the best. An extremely knowledgeable professional, she is also patient, listens to you, and has a calm manner.
Everyone was very nice, the paperwork took almost no time to fil out and there was no wait. It was very convenient I was able to get there and back to my office during lunch in less than 30 mins
She was very professional! I highly recommend.
She was helpful and quick, and explained everything well. The front desk staff was great, too.
Pure Professional, & loves a laugh.
Dr Sohn was efficient and friendly. Excellent visit. Also, they had my contacts in stock, so I took home my whole order right away!
She saw me right away, was very friendly, professional, and straight to the point. She really seemed like she knew what she was doing and gave me a new contacts perscription that I am very happy with. The office also had a great selection of glasses! There are a ton of really cute, edgy styles, and I am excited to go back and get a new pair (although I have to wait for my next paycheck because, even after insurance they are still a little expensive). The entire experience went very smoothly and I am definitely satisfied and will be going back for my annual eye exam next year! :)
Dr Sohn was great, but the office is in a somewhat snooty optical place, where I felt judged for not wanting to order my contacts or glasses there. Oh well.
Both she and the front office staff were very professional and helpful. They had all my insurance information ready and were able to provide the advice I needed. Excellent service!
Overall great visit. Dr. Sohn took her time, explained everything and didn't rush me in and out.
She was very nice and professional!
Quick and comfortable. Extremely professional and a clean environment. Highly recommend.
Avoid this place at all cost!
Dr. Sohn was really nice, to the point, and helped me get through my appointment quickly and painlessly. I would highly recommend her.
Quick and painless. Cant wait toget my new eyeglasses!
She was thorough and professional. I will definitely go next year for my check-up.
Great service. Could not get done what I needed but that is neither the doctor nor Zocdoc's fault. Making the appointment was extremely easy and would recommend it again.
Very professional, overall highly recommend.
Excellent experience, I would definitely recommend Dr. Sohn if you need an eye doctor.
She was thorough, yet it was not a long process.
It was great!
She seemed competent and thorough.
Literally no wait time, friendly staff, clean facilities, knowledgeable doctor.
Went in early; didn't take or couldn't find my visual insurance. Dr. Sohn seemed rushed but otherwise gave me a good exam.
the staffs are nice to asked me what i was there for and found out i actually need an ophthalmologist instead...that's very helpful thank you
She was very thorough, gentle, made sure to explain everything.
