Everyone was really nice and helpfull. Dr. Seema Amin was great, friendly and fast.
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 this doctor! ** 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!
She is fantastic! My new go to optometrist!!
She was great, very personable. It wasn’t over bearing like others places where they push products on you. And the staff was helpful. Every part of the appointment went smoothly.
Dr. Amin was great, and Brittney (the one who assisted me with payments and contact lenses) was especially great! They were both thorough.
I will never recommend this doctor to Anyone. They’re so money hungry and she doesn’t even listen to your concerns or questions, but really quick to answer how are you going to pay for the visit today
I’ve worn glasses for nearly 20 years and Dr. Amin is by far the most thorough optometrist I’ve ever seen. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I will be back and I will be recommending eyes on second to anyone I know looking for great customer care.
Professional, listened to concerns, answered questions, gave choices and a cheerful presence!
Dr. Amin was fantastic. She was very friendly and thorough. My new contacts are amazing.
Very nice, Great service
Office is small, but doctor was very informative & helpful.
She's great and nice. I recommend her!
Excellent eye doctor. Would recommend highly. Thanks!!
Very thoughtful doctor! Really enjoyed being in the office as well - her staff is so kind and cheery. Dr. Amin took the time to go the extra mile to figure out why I've been having such eye strains. So happy and relieved to have found her!
Fantastic office set up and speedy appointment! Dr. Amin is highly professional and knowledgeable about my personal eye care. I appreciate her commitment to care and delivering the best possible service!! Thank you!
Dr Amin is amazing. Always patient, and willing to talk through any issues. Top notch service!
Dr. Seema Amin was pleasant and very thorough with the eye exam. She explained everything clearly and fitted me with a new prescription for glasses and contacts. I was given courtesy contacts until the new ones I ordered come in. Overall, it was a nice visit. Everyone was informative and helpful.
She was great. Very professional and welcoming at the same time. I will definitely go back there.
Great experience. I was seen right away and Dr. Amin was a pure pleasure! She was knowledgeable and super sweet. We got to the root of my issue right away, bought a fabulous new pair of glasses, and went off on my merry way. Will certainly be back!
Thorough and professional. I highly recommend.
Dr. Amin and her team were wonderful! They provided full details of each test being performed and created a warm and comfortable environment for me. I will definitely be visiting them in the future.
This office is really hard sell. It's the most uncomfortable I've ever been in a doctor's office. Highly recommend going elsewhere.
This office is one of the most sales-y environments that I have ever entered. The entire time that I was there I felt as though their only motivation was to sell and not to look after my health. Their were interested in tell me about the latest lenses, coatings, and contacts. They pushed me to book follow up appointments to try different things and kept telling me how much money my insurance would give me. This place feels like a sales office not a doctors office.
Dr. Cawog was amazing!!! I would totally recommend this place to anyone. The staff was very helpful and nice!
I didn't feel like I was a patient rather a customer that was being pushed into purchasing frames/lens despite only coming in to renew a prescription. Staff was clearly annoyed when I chose not to purchase anything and made for an uncomfortable experience. The doctor however, did seem knowledgeable and explained everything clearly and efficiently. Still probably won't be returning as it felt more like a shop than doctor's office.
My experience was very similar to the other reviews I read. The staff was great, extremely friendly and helpful. Same for Dr. Amin! You just have to get past the kind of "rough-ish" and out-dated office space (that was odd).
My visit was great! All my confusing insurance-related questions were answered and I didn't feel rushed through the appointment at all. For such a small space, they also had a great selection of eyeglasses. I will definitely be coming back here!
Everyone was very friendly and laid back. She was quick and easy to talk to, front desk were really nice and helpful when picking out frames.
A very professional yet fun person.
Dr Amin and staff were great. I was seen right away, she was very professional and understanding of my needs, and she helped get me fitted for a new pair of glasses which I love! Would absolutely go back and recommend to friends
The optometrist was helpful and kind. Her office staff, simply rude and unprofessional. I won't be returning, even for a follow up visit. I'll prefer to start over elsewhere.
Dr. Amin was very helpful! She examined my eyes and helped me figure out why I may be having frequent headaches. Her coworkers were kind and helpful as well with helping me find frames. I would definitely recommend this office!
Dr. Seema Amin was one of the nicest eye doctors I've ever been to. She will now be my regular thanks to her kindness and expertise.
Dr. Amin is fantastic, I cannot recommend her enough. Not only do I feel like I was well taken care of, I genuinely had a wonderful interaction with her.
I "liked" Dr. Amin but overall had a poor experience at Village Eyecare. The office is very run-down (chair is cracked with duct tape on it, appointment room is a closet) and located in the back of a glasses store which meant that most of my appointment was driven towards discussing what set of contacts or glasses I would be purchasing upfront at the end of the appointment. Overall, I felt as though the appointment was rushed and that I was being pushed to buy a type of contact that I had repeatedly stated didn't feel comfortable in my eye but was told were very popular... The front staff were very rude and became even more so when I asked to have a copy of my prescription while I thought about whether or not I wanted to order a new set of contacts. Overall, would not recommend and will plan to go elsewhere.
I found that the doctor went back and forth between being patient and being super impatient during the visit. Her tone was quite rough at times and the instructions for follow up were not clear
I have an eye condition which makes basic eye tests a little difficult and Dr. Amin not only made me feel very comfortable but was able to problem solve and improvise considering my vision impairments. She also was able to recommend lenses that would help and they've been great! When I had an issue with a prescription not looking right to me, she was able to fit me in to figure out the problem. She's accommodating with terrific bedside manner and I would recommend.
Dr Seema is very attentive, answers all the questions and makes you feel comfortable. She knows her stuff very well! Highly recommended
She was so personable, I barely even remembered I was getting an eye exam!
She was friendly, warm, and knowledgeable! Highly recommend.
My doctor was amazing! So sweet and helpful. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Amin was really great. She was very patient with me and handled my visit very well especially when I would freak out about things being in my eyes.
Office itself is a little bar bones, but Dr. Amin and her staff were friendly, professional, and warm. Conveniently located, quick visit, and easy paperwork. I'd recommend this office to anyone!
She was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend her to all of my friends. This is not a plug* Was very happy to have found an optometrist.
Dr Amin was great. Very friendly, talked me through different contact options. Front staff is very friendly, would highly recommend.
Office and staff need improvement
Dr. Amin's personable demeanor takes the boredom out of the eye exam. She is patient, clever, funny, exceptionally knowledgeable in her field, and a natural born teacher. Just a delight all around.
I loved my experience and definitely recommend Dr. Amin. She was very helpful and put my interests and needs before anything else compared to big box optical places that only want to sell you frames and contacts.
Dr. Amin was very helpful and took the time to give me a thorough exam and ask the right questions to assess my needs.
She is extremely friendly and professional. I went in with what I thought was pink eye, turns out allergic reaction. I have a follow up visit with her on Monday and she is going to refit me for a contact lens prescription. Just got this prescript in December and going to her! So glad I took the advice of a coworker, went on zocdoc, found Dr. Amin!
Super helpful and thorough
Dr.Amin's offices are clean, bright and welcoming. She and her staff are friendly, efficient and above-and-beyond. She makes me want to go to the eye doctor every day! I highly recommend Dr.Amin.
I was overdue for my annual eye exam and chose Dr. Amin fromher Zocdoc recommendations and proximity to my office. To go in without a personal recommendation, I was VERY pleased with my experience with this practice. I found Dr. Amin and her PA Grace to have great 'chair-side manner (as another reviewer said) with a side dose of humor. Dr. Amin was extremely thorough and explanatory as was Grace who also administered some of my eye tests. It was a positive experience and I will definitely return. I am planning to make Dr Amin my family optician!
Amazing and very professional Doctor. Also very friendly! Would recommend her without a doubt.
Great visit, highly recommended.
My visit with Seema exceeded all expectations - she was warm, friendly, skilled and professional. I was very happy with her ability to guide me to an improved prescription and the overall experience.
Very professional, friendly, informative. All round great Optimetrist.
Dr. Amin was extremely knowledgeable. I am what you would consider a "scary patient," everything makes me nervous. However, Dr. Amin had an attention, willingness, and care that I have never experienced at the eye doctor. I have been given several poor eye examinations but this experience comes highly recommended. Working in media, there is a lot of damage that can be done to the eyes but Dr. Amin's comprehensive exam has me on the road to stronger eyes. I am glad that I found Dr. Amin and will be able to have her as my primary eye doctor.
It was my first visit to eye doctor and it was good experience! Doctor was so friendly and professional!
Was very comfortable well attended.
Very friendly and quick!
Seema was a great doctor. We immediately shared a mid west connection! She answered all my questions and asked good questions regarding my eye sight. She made me feel comfortable! Thank you Seema, I will be back and so will my boyfriend.
Seema was wonderful and professional. I was seen right away and she was able to steer me toward a more updated solution for my eyes than I had been getting at my old doctor. Highly recommended.
I'd highly recommend Dr. Amin. The standard of care (quality of facilities, her bedside manner, etc.) was excellent.
What an amazing professional she is indeed.
Great visit! Loved her! So smart, nice, and speedy!
Completely thorough kind and professional!
The best! This office is not here for profit. They're here to ensure proper eye health. Doctor is professional and so is other staff. They run extensive tests to ensure that my eyes are healthy!
Dr. Amin was great. Saw me pretty much right away, and the appt was quick without feeling rushed. She made a point to connect with me, I felt like more than just another patient to her. Plus, Althia was amazing in helping me get my insurance taken care of so I didn't have to worry about anything. Overall great experience.
She was great! Super friendly, quick and informative
She is amazing! Great young professional, personable, makes you feel at ease while taking care of your eyes.
Seema's kind, professional, funny and thorough. Amazing doctor!
I was extremely pleased with my visit. She was very patient and thorough and really took the time to explain things to me and answer my questions.
