Very friendly, easy to talk to. Even though it was a basic eye exam, she took time to remind me aboutthings like the importance of wearing sunglasses and limiting screen time on phones / computers, changing the screen light when it's evening, etc.

Dr. Belenkova was so sweet, I felt instantly at ease with her. The entire visit was also insanely efficient. I wasseen immediately for the pre-exam tests, and the exam itself was very thorough, and I was somehow out the door in 30 mins! It was like magic! What also impressed me is I got a phone call an hour after the appointment to tell me they accidentally overcharged me by a few dollars. I know a LOT of doctor offices that would never say a word and keep that money, so it was very refreshing. 100% recommend Dr. Belenkova!

Dr. Belenkova was great! I was a bit nervous at first because the person who did the pre-exam tests didn’t seem to really know what they were doing, but Dr. Belenkova exceeded my expectations. She took the time to listen to my concerns and explain things to me, and did a very thorough eye examination.

Dr. Belenkova is great, she’s extremely knowledgeable and kind. I went in for an eye exam and was seen straight away. She quickly assessed my situation, offered valuable advice, took time to provide explanations to my questions. The receptionist checked my insurance to make sure I was fully covered before any services were rendered. I’ve definitely found my new eye doctor!

I've been seeing Dr. Belenkova for a few years now, based on a recommendation from a friend. Even though the commute to Town Optical is no longer convenient for me, I still make the trek because I love her so much! She's always friendly and excellent with explaining procedures and care. Will definitely continue to see her for as long as I live in New York (and she continues practicing)!

I traveled to NY from California for VEE and started having very irritated eyes. I was afraid I can contracted pink eye and needed to see a doctor right away. I was referred to Town Optical by a business associate that works in NYC. I got an appointment that morning. Everyone in the office was very nice and helpful. Dr. Belenkova was very thorough and professional, as well as nice. The office staff made sure my visit was covered by my insurance and I only had to pay my co-pay amount. Turns out I didn't have pinkeye - thankfully! And was able to work at the VSP booth for VEE. I really appreciate everyone's help.

I am a film editor - working long hours staring at microscopic details onscreen - sometimes 100 hours a week! I discovered Victorya 11 years ago, and followed her office moves, etc. She is a consummate professional, her quiet calm manner might make you miss her strong rigorous medical insight. We work out tricky issues, like the best correction for long days with screens 30" away, then different prescriptions for tennis!

Dr. Belenkova is one of the more caring and genuine optometrists I’ve seen over the last 11 years I’ve lived in Manhattan. Her knowledge base is better than anything you can find on google (no fake news) and I’m glad to see solid healthcare in Manhattan for a change!
