The staff was really nice. However, Sara was not very friendly and my appointment seemed rushed. I received my prescription and ordered glasses through a third party because the glasses in the store felt outdated. Once I received my glassesI couldn't see out of them. My prescription I received from Sara is WRONG. I compared it to my past prescriptions and it's way off. Now I have to go to a different optometrist to receive a correct prescription and order new glasses. Complete waste of time.

Dr Varghai may not have been the most warm and did seem to be going through the motions, but she was professional and clearly explained everything very clearly. The staff was fantastic. Basically no wait at all.

Dr. Varghai is very professional and explains things well. The staff is friendly and courteous. The examination equipment seems to be state-of-the art. It is all a bit pricey, but that is what you must expect in the heart of Arlington.On the other hand, they match the competitors’ (such as CVS) price on contact lens.

Dr. Varghai was so great, very quick, friendly and knowledgeable. She was quick to find out what the issue was and diagnose it. She was then thorough in explaining the issue with my swollen eye, but did not take too muchtime going into details I did not necessarily need. She was so nice and easy to work with, I would highly recommend her!

The office was very disorganized, when I walked in no one greeted me and i stood there for a moment in the entryway. They also asked for my insurance card twice (forgetting they already had it) and then forgot to giveit back to me. I had to call 3 times to get someone to confirm it was still there, then drive back to the office for it.

Felt rushed the entire time. Didn’t feel like she was taking the time to get my prescription right or explain things to me in detail.

Dr. Varghai was so nice. She was quick but thorough, and made sure to answer all my questions. I especially appreciated that she didn't push me to buy my glasses or contacts there, and gave me a copy of my prescription right away when I asked.

Super quick appointment for contact prescription, I appreciated being able to get in and out and not being upsold, but I understand some might want to spend a little more time with the doctor and they did seem sort of tightly booked.
