He is very professional and very helpful. He is also very friendly and I highly recommend him. The only bad thing is the wait time but it makes sense because he is a pretty good doctor. Also I don't understand whythey charge me for the visits if in other places they don't charge. That's not really the doctors fault he's still pretty good.

I feel crazy saying this but I didn't read accurately that On, Lam was an optometrist. I thought I was booking for ophthalmologist. My eyes were hurting, but he is not really that bad. However I am a pearle vision customer.So after my eye exam I didn't like the glasses collection they had to offer, so I went to Pearle Vision, but his office authorized my insurance for glasses that I didn't take from them. I have to call repeatedly and they were like why you got a exam here if you didn't want glasses from here. I am never going back to this office, ever if the optometrist is great.

Dr. Lam was very friendly and welcoming. Quite personable, funny and charming, making my visit very pleasant. He was also very thorough with his examination and tests to ensure that I receive the best possible care and treatment. I also appreciatedthat he explained everything he was doing, the reasons why and provided clear instructions on how to use the prescription and what to expect.

Dr. Lam was friendly, informative and professional. His advice for my bursted blood vessel in my eye saved me from damage and led to it quickly healing. I would recommend him to anyone in search of eye health. I plan to continue using him as my eye doctor going further!

It was good. Doctor was great and receptionist or counter girl was nice. Though didn't like the frames they had. Not good frames and Not worth the price they were asking for. So decided to just get prescription and order online . Much cheaper.

The appointment was for my 5 year old, and it was the best! Dr. Lam engaged my child from the second he walked in, my son felt so comfortable and excited that he asked to come back every day to gethis eyes checked. Dr. Lam was wonderful with my child and is so knowledgable, and very patient when answering questions.

I never went to an eye doctor before, and this was easy breezy. I got there 25 minutes early, and didn't even have to wait 10 minutes. Dr. Lam was very friendly and smiley. He asked me if I had anyissues or anything about my eyes I wanted to talk about, but I didn't have anything that required special attention. All the standard tests were quick, and I was out of there within 10 minutes.
