Dr. Amin was amazing -- and so was her staff. She cares about not just getting my glasses prescription right, but making sure it helps alleviate any overall health issues I have. I'm used to just getting an eye test andbeing sent on my way, but she asked questions about how I feel at the end of the day, concentration, etc., and took them all into account when making her recommendation. Even more importantly -- I was seen right away, the whole thing took just a few minutes (but I was never rushed), and the staff was amazingly patient and helpful while I chose new frames.

I made an appointment after a week and a half of dry eyes. Checking in was simple and took about 2 minutes (filled out forms online). I was told how much my copay would be for a routine eye exam andmedical examination, based on what the doctor may determine. My appointment was scheduled for 6pm, but I waited about 35 minutes before being seen (not unusual for any doctor's office in New York). I shared my concerns with Dr. Amin and was told that the issue may be that my eyes are now allergic to the brand of contacts I've been using for over ten years. Having only heard of eyes becoming intolerant of contacts as a whole, I felt a little skeptical. The eye exam went smoothly and I was told to speak to an associate about next steps. This is where things got a little uncomfortable. After being given a breakdown of pricing to update my glasses lenses and order contacts, I asked if I could hold off on placing an order and was met with slight hostility about not placing an order on the spot. I asked if I could just pay for the exam and was told an amount that was higher than both prices listed when I arrived. I expressed that I was confused based on the initial copay information that was shared with me. The associate told me that it was my responsibility to discuss with the doctor what type of exam was needed, but Dr. Amin came out to explain and apologize if it was not made clear to me how much I'd be paying (which it wasn't) but I paid the fee anyway. Overall, the associate felt a little too pushy in terms of trying to make a sale and was a bit rude when I explained my confusion, but Dr. Amin was perfectly nice and helpful in answering additional questions I had. I have yet to receive my prescription despite being told it'd be sent to me the following day. I've emailed the office and haven't heard back yet.

As other reviewers have stated, I felt more like a customer than a patient. I trusted Dr. Amin but feel that I should not have - what was presented to me as my only option was really a series of upsells.I went in for my annual exam and came out with my pockets emptied. I feel foolish and taken advantage of. Dr. Amin did not seem to care about my well-being as a patient; rather, her main concern seemed to be to make as much money from me as possible for Eyes on Second. The experience felt, in a word, dishonest.

I loved the Dr. Amin's knowledge and her helpfulness as I had a problem with my eyes. I would recommend she slows down her eye exam a little bit as I felt quite rushed and maybe introduces herself a little better.I understand she had a lot of back to back patients but as a new patient it would have been nicer to have a little more bedside manner in the visit. Other than that I would love to see her again and appreciate her help.

Extremely short wait time, clean space, and very friendly staff! Overall positive experience with Dr. Amin. Contact lens exam (without insurance subsidies) was pricey compared to my last exam, but take this with a grain of salt (consideringmy previous contact lens exam was in New Jersey). Otherwise, no complaints!

I was honestly disappointed, it was pretty apparent that the eye consultation is just a sales vehicle to push business to the glasses store. While not unheard of, this behavior is annoying. When I entered, the front desk person took mydata and asked me to wait. The store looked like a mess with unpacked boxes standing around everywhere. The waiting area is in a very awkward place, you have to turn your knees every time someone passes (like in a movie theater)--which happened a lot. I was not informed how long the wait was. The eye consultation in total took way longer than it had to because of all the hustle and bustle and additional waiting. Dr Amin herself was friendly and seemed competent, but she also seemed eager to push "eye fatigue" glasses, and the store lady tried to rush me to do an order. Also, I've had several eye exams before, I never was as impacted by the eye dilation liquid they used before. I was barely able to walk home safely. Overall, I wouldn't go there again.

I've been seeing Dr. Amin for many years. She is truly fantastic and I wouldn't consider going to anyone else. From the very start, she's always been very thorough, very personable and makes sure to take time to answer any questionsor concerns. The staff is great too, and wait time has never been an issue.

Dr. Amin is absolutely a class act! Not only was she speedy and efficient but was very thorough in making sure my concerns were addressed and I feel confident in our treatment plan moving forward. I will definitely be keeping thisdoctor! ** ALSO: my gender identity is transgender-nonbinary, and I can affirm with great enthusiasm that this is a queer-friendly/safe space!! If you add notes to your appointment booking that your gender does not match what was assigned to you at birth/on your insurance card and mention what your pronouns are, they will use whatever you put. Couldn't tell you what I'd give to have this experience at every doctor I visited!
