This office was just what I was looking for when searching for an optometrist for my disabled mother. The office was accessible for her mobility issues (they even have a walker for patients who need to use it to walk the hallway to the different rooms). The wait was very short and the appointment was on time. Dr. Hammer examined her for her new prescription quickly and the gentleman who sold the eyeglasses was very thorough and professional. He took the time to find the right fit for the frames and brought them all out to where she was sitting so she didn't have to walk around.
Steven is phenomenal...upon my first visit today it was an ABSOLUTE ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE...THE STAFF AS WELL ARE SO CURTEOUS AND GREETED ME WITH NOTHING BUT SMILES I FELT ABSOLUTELY COMFORTABLE RIGHT FROM THE START...
Very clean office. Staff was very helpful and patient. The doctor was excellent. Explained every step along the way and answered all of my questions. He gave me very helpful tips and advice for product solution. He is very knowledgeable and I understand why he has such positive feedback. Great doctor, office, and staff. I highly recommend this group.

Awesome doctor ????
The service I received was excellent! I will greatly recommended Dr.Steven to everyone!
Dr Hammer is very pleasant, professional and thorough. Answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend him
This is not my first visit to Dr. Hammer... but every time I have seen him, he's been wonderful. The ladies at the reception table are also really great. He's a very nice doctor, great bedside manner and he was very patient with me. I came in for a regular eye exam and I was also interested in trying contacts. He was really patient while I had a hard time adjusting to the lenses and had to try a few different lenses. Overall, my experience in this office is always a pleasure, wait times vary, but based on my visit before this one, I didn't have to wait longer then 15-20 minutes to be seen. He also has a great optician who works in his office, Jeff. In the past he helped me fit glasses and would go over all my options. My vision is terrible so I usually have to get fancy lenses, etc. Great environment and great staff!
Dr. Steven Hammer, OD, gives a complete examination for my eyes which includes not only a regular vision test, but he also measures my eye pressure for glaucoma, and takes a picture of the optic nerve to make sure there is no damage to it, a retinal scan to make sure there is no detached retina, a field vision test to exam peripheral vision, and if my eye pressure is too high with 30 or more, I am able to get Latanoprost eye drops to lower my eye pressure. I highly recommend Dr. Hammer for eye examinations since he does a variety of eye testing and has all the instruments for your full eye exam.
It was phenomenal! Unlike my previous optomalogists, Dr. Hammer is more professional and the technology is more advanced. Plus, they provide the correct (stylish) eyeglasses I needed. Even the staff is friendly! I love it! Highly recommend it!

Dr. Hammer is one of the few optometrists who perform a wide variety of tests for eyes including glaucoma eye pressure testing, takes a picture of the optic nerve, field of vision test for peripheral vision, and of course a eye chart test using an eye scope.

BEST EYE DR EVER!
Dr. Hammer is very nice and professional. His staff is attentive, welcoming and efficient. The office space is fairly small, but it is clean and comfortable enough. I'd recommend him and will see him again for future appointments.
