Dr. Bindal was fantastic and seems to genuinely care about his patients. He took the time to explain things and didn't seem to be rushing through things like many docs these days. Very glad I found him!

I got to my appointment 30 minutes early to fill out the necessary paperwork. It wasn't as long as the online paperwork and took about 5-10 minutes to complete. I wasn't seen until 2:45 PM, Dr. Bindal has many patients. People were professional and considerate.

He's amazing. Period. Thorough, comforting, takes his time and is open to questions and ideas. Today his admin folks seemed overwhelmed and it was disorganized a bit. They're wonderful, kind and charming people though and have been fabulous during priof visits.

I would recommend that they put better prices on their glasses inside the store but as far as the optometrist it was spot-on

Dr. Bindal and his staff are great. I had been going to the mall to get eye exams until they were so unprofessional that I immediately searched for the nearest eye doctor and that was Dr. Bindal. He put them to shame with his thoroughness and I started bringing my daughter to his office too, because our eyes are important!

I love this optometrist, and he gave me the most accurate prescription I have ever had! But i think his office is very worried about making money, and they overcharged me for glasses and prescribed me contacts that I don't like (that are more expensive than the comfortable ones I got last time). go for the prescription, but go elsewhere for more cost effective eyewear.

Dr. Bindal was amazing! From the minute I walked in the door to the minute I left, everyone was fabulous! I was checked in and then all of my pretesting was done. Dr. Bindal recommended changing out my daily contacts to a more comfortable one for about the same price and then Nigel helped me pick out new frames! They were transparent about the pricing and the frames weren't actually that bad. Nigel was so sweet and patient with me as I tried on so many different kinds and just kept looking at them. He even made suggestions. He said he could get my lenses done, but then found out he was missing the left one so he said he would order them today and then cut my lenses ASAP. Dr. Bindal had great bedside manner and was thorough about explaining my exam giving me many opportunities to ask questions. I would definitely recommend him!

The office staff was not friendly. They told me upfront my appointment would cost one amount, but it ended up costing over a hundred dollars more than what they originally told me. I don't think it's fair to not make a patient aware of the cost of the appointment until after the appointment is over. The doctor also really tries to sell his office's products while you're getting an exam which is uncomfortable.

As a result of a change in my vision following surgery, I needed new progressive lenses in one pair of daily use glasses and one pair of computer glasses. I also needed to purchase new frames and progressive lenses for sunglasses. The total bill for those three pairs of glasses was a small fortune! My need was such that I did not have time to shop around, but I wish I had. The same glasses could have been purchased at less than half the cost elsewhere. What's worse, however, is that I cannot see well out of any of the three pairs of glasses I purchased. The computer glasses do not provide clear vision regardless of how close or far away I sit from the computer. Trying to use them makes me feel nauseated. The regular use glasses and sunglasses are passable; that is, I can see at a functional level with them. But reading is difficult, as there is no distance where in the words appear clear. I have called the office to inform them that it seems likely that either the eye exam resulted in an inaccurate prescription, or that something went wrong in the manufacture of the lenses. I have yet to hear back from them.
