Visit was excellent. Dr. Farra and staff were great and very welcoming. Dr. Farra was honest and I felt like I could trust her. Highly recommend!

I have been seeing Dr. Farra for three years. She is awesome and I would recommend her to anyone!
This was my first appointment in 2 years. I was pleased with the wait time. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The exam was quick and to the point. No oversell or undersell. Provided options for what I needed glasses for. I'm very pleased with the visit. I was looking to get closer to home / work for future appointments and this worked out great. Thanks Carol B
Dr. Farra is always personable, professional and thorough. Her staff is also excellent, and I recommend this practice without reservation!
What a lovely office with friendly and professional staff. Will definitely recommend to friends in the area.
The office felt a bit pushy. When I was checking in, right away they were trying to upsell me to pay for a different treatment for dialation that cost more. I got the same speech when I was with the doctor as well. Happened a couple times, which made me feel uncomfortable. Made me question if they had my true best interest at heart, and not their business.
I love going to the eye doctors now! Always a great experience!
I was very impressed with the office and staff. Dr. Farra was professional and at the same time made me feel very comfortable throughout my exam. Large selection of glasses with staff to assist you in your selection.
Airways a great experience. Everyone in the office is fantastic and thorough.
The doctor and staff are helpful, courteous and professional. They truly care that you are taken care of and understand the diagnosis.

Dr Farra, was very thorough in her review and recommendations of treatment. Her staff was friendly, and professional.
The appointment was for my daughter, a routine eye check- up. Dr. Farra was extremely informative and friendly during the entire visit. We were very impressed with her office. Highly recommend!
Dr. Farra was very sweet and took her time examining my eyes. I had gone in for a medical concern (eye irritation), not a fitting. When figuring out the best way to treat my issue, she was also very mindful of what would be affordable to me which I appreciate. It was also my first time at the office and I felt extremely welcome. The staff was polite, place clean, and doctor helpful. Glad I found them :)

Dr farra and her staff are great. Always a lovely experience.
The reason the Doctor was late to see me, is that she was attending to a special needs patient. Her interaction with this young man was amazing. No complaints here on the wait. She could not have been more apologetic about it, and there was really no need.
I love going to Wink. The staff is always helpful, appointments are on time and it feels more personal than most doctor offices.
Very professional, pleasant, informative & friendly. In fact perfect. Thank you
Very kind and helpful!!!
Everyone in office is competent and friendly. Sticker shock as usual when buying glasses but they helped me quickly find a great looking and very comfortable pair to ease the pain.
Dr. Farra is so kind and so is her staff. They were very helpful and patient with me, as I was just learning how to put in contacts for the first time. I definitely recommend using their services.
I felt very comfortable with the provider and staff during my entire visit.
Dr. Fara was great. Would definitely recommend to friends.
Attentive, knowledgeable and patient.
Taline was very professional and diagnosed my astigmatism quickly. I was amazed at how well I cold see after the corrections she made! The Optomap option that they offer is worthwhile. The rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Gentle, professional and very helpful.
I Recommend her to all my Family & Friends!!
Excellent, very professional, was not rushed, took time to answer all questions.
I enjoyed my apt with Dr. Farra and the staff at Wink. Everyone was knowledgeable in their departments and explained everything to me that I needed to know. The optician took his time with me while I was picking out glasses, and the Tech/Secretary was wonderful as well. Dr. Farra took her time during my appointment and made sure that I had no questions or concerns. I am recommending them to my family and friends.
Dr. Farra is great - highly recommended!
Very kind and professional. Thorough examination with explanations and demonstrations any lay person could understsnd. Answered all questions clearly and completely.
I would 100% refer a friend or family member here. I felt like I was being heard and helped in a way that was not pushy. Being fitted for glasses was an awesome experience as well. They really helped me find the right pair for me.
Dr. Farra is thorough, efficient, and so friendly! Definitely going back.
Dr. Farra is exceptionally personable and thorough. She takes time to explain what she's doing and the rationale. Not only does she care about the health of my eyes, she cares about me as a person. I look forward to my visits with her!
First time seeing an eye doctor in Boston since moving here, and couldn't ask for anything more. Answered questions and was informative through the whole process.
I recently moved to Boston and was skeptical choosing a medical professional simply based off a website. I was pleasantly suprised and would definitely recommend her!
Quick, efficient, helpful! Appreciated the location, too! Easy to get to, and helpful evening hours.
Dr. Farra is amazing. She is very personable and is clearly a professional in her line of work. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a new doctor.
Great optometrist! Extremely thorough and knowledgable. The office was filled with adults and kids- I would recommend people of all ages to go see her!
It was a pleasure
I went to Wink yesterday for a general visit for the first time. I was greeted by the staff who were very friendly and seemed prepared for my appointment as the paperwork was ready for me as I arrived. Dr. Farra was very friendly, approachable, and personable. We did the standard eye exam, and she had me try one a couple pairs of contacts. She was able to explain the condition of my eyes in a way that I could easily understand. She had a genuine concern for my dry eyes and was determined to help alleviate my condition. I would definitely recommend Wink and look forward to returning.
Awesome! As someone who hates going to any doctor, I have to say this was a great and painless experience! Top notch. Friendly staff too!
Extremely helpful and professional staff! Would highly recommend.
Glad I found this place.
Excellent visit w both Dr. Farra and Amy! Both were very helpful, personable, attentive - just great people!
Great office, great staff, great doctor!
Dr. Farra was very knowledgable and explained everything to me that was or could potentially be happening with my eyes. She recommended multiple treatments for my eye health. Staff was friendly and helpful in making a choice in eyeglasses. This is my first time purchasing prescription eyeglasses. The price of my new glasses was much less than I expected since I chose from my insurance's designated "designer" selection, but next time I might try for the fancy ones, haha.
My visit with Dr. Farra was fantastic. She was friendly, thorough and the office had a great atmosphere. I highly recommend Dr. Farra and Wink!
I find the office to be friendly but professional and learned a lot from Dr. Farra. They have an eyeglass specialist (Amy) as well who was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about frames and lenses etc.
The appointment was very thorough and all of my options were explained nicely. I will be a long time patient.
She was great, very friendly and execellent at her job. So happy I have such a wonderful office so close to my house. Thank you!
This is the best eye exam I ever had. The doctor was wonderful and the staff so professional and very informed regarding insurance etc. I already recommended them!
Dr. Farra and her staff are wonderful - very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. The exam room and showroom are clean and modern, and I recommend Dr. Farra without hesitation.
I had a great experience with Dr Farra and the staff at Wink Eyecare in South Boston. From scheduling the appointment, filling out paperwork online, checking in, the exam, and then selecting glasses the entire experience was efficient and the people very friendly. I would recommend them to anyone looking for eye care!
She was so accommodating as well a nice person. I felt comfortable with her but also she was professional. Looking forward to future appointments.
Dr. Farra was great. She is very friendly and explained everything perfectly. Having been the first time I was being seen by her, she made it easy to talk about my history of eye exams, etc. and was willing to help try and troubleshoot some problems.
She's awesome; I highly recommend! Taline was very friendly and did a very thorough check-up!
She's very easy to work with. Knowledgeable and professional.
Friendly greeting. Quick paperwork & seen promptly. Dr. Farra was able to answer all of my questions & give me insight on my changing glasses prescription. Ordered contacts & new frames. Nice selection of frames. A bit pricey, but not uncommon for Boston. Will return again.
Genuinely, one of the best eye appointments I have ever had. Both Dr. Farra and her staff were friendly, professional, and extremely competent (harder to come by than you would think). I will recommend her to everyone I know. Seriously, go visit.
Very friendly staff greeting you the minute you walk in. They get you started right away and There was no wait! Dr. fares was very professional but also welcoming and down-to-earth. Highly recommend Wink!
Dr. Farra has a great demeanor and explained everything very clearly. She provided information about the process that other past doctors just glossed over.

Excellent all around! Dr. Farra is an outstanding professional with a very friendly, courteous approach making it easy to discuss any issues or concerns. The office staff is helpful and friendly as well. Clean, up-to-date facility and equipment adds to the positive experience.
The Doctor was very nice and answered all my questions. The frame selection was great. The girl helping me with my glasses was great made sure the frame was the perfect one for me and made some adjustments to my old glasses. I definitely will recommend Wink to everyone
