Dr. Sylvie was so sweet it felt natural like I had been going to her for years! I went in for an eye infection and I walked out having a new permanent optometrist (I'm leaving my current one). Thanks Dr. Sylvie!

Dr. Sylvie El Hage was easily the best eye doctor I've seen. I recently moved to the Houston area, and have been looking around for an eye doctor. She was my first pick, and I won't be looking anymore. She explained everything thoroughly, helped correct my prescription, and gave lots of helpful information for my contacts & glasses. I would highly recommend her!

Second time with Dr. Sylvie. Very kind, easy going and explains everything that's happening. She doesn't leave you in the dark, and answers any question you have (I had several, so I appreciated her candor!) She walked me through getting some new glasses and gave me great feedback. I'll be coming back to her!

Dr. El Hage and her staff were wonderful! Very short wait and very thorough during he exam. Dr. El Hage spent a great deal of time answering my questions and also stuck around with me for at least 45 minutes after the exam while I tried on just about every pair of eye glasses in the store (twice). She is professional, personable, and clearly very well trained. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again and will be recommending her office to all of my friends.

I made an appointment after putting off going to the optometrist for way too long. Admittedly, I experience a bit of anxiety any time I have to go to a new physician in any field. Rosa, at the front desk, was helpful and friendly; Dr. Sylvie was prompt and attentive. These days going to the optometrist can sometimes feel like walking on to a used car lot. I've had experiences in the past where doctors would pressure me to pay extra for ocular mapping, or trendy upgrades to my lenses, but Dr. Sylvie was a dream. She explained everything thoroughly, answered all of my questions about my particular condition, and took her time when it came to getting my prescription just right. Once we had landed on the proper prescription she lead me through all of my options for glasses and contacts, and took the time to breakdown the pricing which allowed me to compare it to other vendors (1-800 contacts, etc.). It was a great experience, and I won't have to worry about any optometry related anxiety in the future. Plus, I think have a crush. haha

I was a new patient. I don't mind filling forms and the front desk was very welcoming. Dr. Sylvie was very kind, warm and did all of the exam herself. Other practices I've been to have associates do those tasks but I appreciated her being there to see everything. She explained the processes and pros and cons and left the decision up to me, which I liked. Will be back!

She was great. Really great! I usually go to an Opthamologist for my exams and glasses. I made an appt to see Dr. Sylvie El Hage because my glasses broke and I could not get in to see the Ophthalmologist anytime soon. Well, I don't think I'll be going back to the Opthamologist again. The examination by Dr. Sylvie El Hage was by far the most comprehensive examination I have ever had and her bedside manner could not be better. She was very thorough and did not rush me or the tests. She clearly loves what she does. I cannot recommend her enough.

The visit started about 15 minutes (not bad) after the scheduled time and now I know why. More on that later. I actually took advantage and browsed some very cool frames in the meantime. Her demeanor is direct, smart and pleasant so your time spent is, well, actually fun! Very capable on her field -as are many doctors when it comes to typical matters- but she's also very knowledgeable on many 'non standard' issues which I brought up. She is a true eyecare specialist. So about the slight delay, this is the reason. Dr Sylvie will not let you go until all your questions are answered. Non of that hurried feeling you get at many doctor's offices. That is a great asset! They have a good selection of glasses at the Optic too, from standard/conservative to high fashion, hi tech ones. Pretty cool.

I was in need of a new optometrist since my last one wasn't very good. I stumbled upon Dr. Sylvie El Hage on ZocDoc and saw that she had amazing reviews. Additionally, her clinic is located in a good location and she provides convenient appointment times. So I booked my appointment and filled out all the necessary forms on ZocDoc. Upon my arrival, the staff at the front desk was very friendly. I only had to sign two documents and was seen within 10 minutes of arrival. My first experience with Dr. Sylvie El Hage was EXCELLENT! I must say that being in the medical field, I'm very critical of providers and their beside manner. But Dr. Sylvie El Hage has exceptional bedside manner! She is extremely personable and a true pleasure to speak to. She is very knowledgeable and will take the time to thoroughly explain each of the exams she conducts and the results she finds. In fact, she found that my previous prescription was over-correcting my vision... a finding that I was aware but that my previously optometrist dismissed. So I was very happy Dr. Sylvie El Hage identified it and was in agreement that my previous prescription was inappropriate. When it was time to pick out frames, she and I spoke the same language (and I'm a guy with a very picky sense of fashion when it comes to eye glasses). She knew I wanted something fashionable but not too pricey. She really took the time to go through the different frames with me and provide her honest feedback on how they looked. It was nice to have an optometrist that wasn't there to sell me the most expensive frame but rather, find a pair that really looked good on me and one that I would love. As Dr. Sylvie El Hage put it, a customer's satisfaction is a reflection on her. I should mention that the selection of frames at Eye Care Associates is impressive and the cost is comparable to other places I have shopped at. Additionally, it only took a few days for my new glasses to be ready for pickup! Overall, I had a awesome experience and I highly recommend Dr. Sylvie El Hage! Happy to have found a new optometrist who I can trust and be 100% honest with!

First appointment with her was great. I had another OD in town who no longer accepted my vision plan, so was reticent about having to find a new doc. It all worked-out great and I feel like I have a good eye professional to keep my eyes healthy!
