Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Viktorya Belenkova was excellent. She is very knowledgeable, great bedside manner, made you feel at ease and very comfortable.
Dr. was very patient and explained everything in a way that was comforting and easy to understand. Thank you!
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 has a natural presence. I never feel like she wants to upsell me. She seems genuinely happy when tests come back clean. She's a real sweetheart.
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!
I trust Dr. Belenkova to provide the best care and advice. She is the best!
Always enjoy the stuff and my doctor. Thanks!

Dr. Belenkova was kind and patient. I appreciated her explanations of anything I didn't understand and suggestions on how to take care of my eyes (issues with dryness).

Very attentive and extremely thorough eye exam.
Nothing but good things to say. Highly competent and a nice, friendly person.

Wonderful Doctor and wonderful staff & office overall. My family and I have been going there for 10 years +. Doc Viktorya takes the time to talk to you and you never feel rushed.
The overall experience was good. Doctor Belenkova was very sweet. She spent a lot of time with me. She seemed the best optometrist I met. And I was very excited after the visit. But she gave me wrong prescription for my glasses. I had to come back to get a new prescription. She apologized for that and finally I got my glasses, but after two additional visits to the office. She is nice, the office is clean, staff is polite, they corrected they mistake with no questions, so I would recommend this doctor.
She was very kind and honest and took her time with all the procedures.
Dr. Belenkova is a great doctor. She takes her time with you, is very thorough and explains everything she is doing.
Very satisfied with everything , excellent service very professional Doctor, highly recommend .
Dr. Belenkova is the sweetest doctor, very calm and patient. She speaks in a way that immediately puts you at ease and always has a smile on! It's usually more hectic in the waiting area as the staff are doing tests and directing patients to respective doctors but once inside Dr. Belenkova's office it's serene. The staff is a bit more brusque but not rude, just trying to manage all the patients at once. Will be staying with Dr. Belenkova for as long as I can!
I felt that I was in very good hands. She didn't rush through the exam and took time to explain to me things I can do for my eye health.
I've been a patient of Dr. Belenkova since the late 1990's She always ask the right questions and checks on general health and past history. Always explains procedures and goes over any concerns I may have. Excellent doctor!.
Very friendly and knowledgeable.
Dr. Belenkova is an ideal doctor. Her bedside manner is excellent. She is also able to describe things in laymen's terms, without ever "dumbing down" of anything.
Went in for a routine eye exam and Dr. Belenkova was very nice with a kind bedside manner. She was able to assist me patiently and helped me get sorted with my contacts. Def recommend!
She is a very good Dr. with good "bedside" manner. She is a professional but also comes across with a caring side. I would recommend her to everyone
Very pleasant and thorough eye exam. Great office atmosphere.
Dr. Belenkova is the best! She asks lots of questions and carefully explains everything she does and everything she recommends. Her patients are in great hands.
less waiting time
Dr. Belenkova is amazing. She asked me about me questions to try to see how often I used my eyesight and/or strained it. She suggested that I try to work further away from my computer and listened to my concerns regarding a "floater" I saw in my right eye. She followed up with me to perform additional testing to ensure my eyes were okay and thankfully, they were. But if they weren't, I knew they would be in good hands. I am happy I found an eye doctor I can trust.
Took the time to talk through my concerns with me, which I really appreciated.
Viktorya Belenkova is the best doctor I've met in Manhattan so far. She has perfect bedside manner: she explains things to you, listens to your concerns, gives advice, does not get distracted by anyone else while she is working on you and is not rushing you. Her front desk staff is very welcoming, polite and helpful. It was also my shortest wait time ever - I was seen right away, barely had time to fill out the papers. I definitely recommend this doctor.
I went in for a contact eye exam. Dr. Viktorya was very sweet and knowledgeable. Her exam was pretty quick and to the point which I appreciate. I've been wear contacts for 18 years so I would rather be in and out and get on with life. I didn't have to wait at all. Staff was friendly and quick. Only down side would be that they are pretty pricey, even with insurance. I couldn't believe the price for just the exam! EEK! But that's NYC for you.
I liked Doctor Belenkova. She gave me what I came in for, a new glasses prescription. But her front desk was very unorganized and almost rude. They seemed stressed and it made me stressed as well.
Dr Belenkova answered all of my questions comprehensively (which had tallied up for 2 years since my previous eye doctor effectively answered 0 questions). I did not feel rushed at all. The front desk personnel were nice and helpful as well. All charges were explained prior to the appointment which in my experience has been rare practice. I will be happy to go back there next year.
I hadn't been to see an optometrist in what was probably a bit too long of an amount of time and was glad I went to Dr. Viktorya! She had been recommended to me by a friend, and she had received the recommendation from a coworker. In other words, highly recommended! The office is very clean and reception staff was friendly and prompt with service. I didn't wait long and Dr. Viktorya provided a very thorough exam with just the right amount of explanation of what she was seeing and what I should be doing. Great overall experience!
Dr. Belenkova really did nothing to help me resolve my vision issues. She stated that it was not her area of expertise and pawned me off onto another doctor within her practice to recieve a service that was not covered by "any insurance". I was not satisfied by my visit and felt that I was let down and I will now have to seek treatment elsewhere.
Dr Belenkova is great! I have been going to her for years and can't recommend her enough.
Dr. Belenkova is an awesome doctor. She was very knowledgeable and thorough during my visit and took time with me to talk about concerns I had and any questions. I highly recommend her! She also has a great reception team that are very polite and are great with insurance questions!
Dr. Belenkova is very attentive, and patiently listens to any concerns or questions I might have. She makes me feel at ease.

Dr. Belenkova is great. She's very kind and takes the time to answer any questions and explain things. The front desk staff is also friendly, and helpful. I've never had to wait long for my appointment either. It's always a pleasant experience. I highly recommend!
Dr. Belenkova is very kind and highly proficient doctor. She takes you effortlessly through an exam, with careful precision, while at the same time entertaining conversation to make you feel comfortable..
Doctor Belenkova was good. She had good bedside manner, and was professional. But, I have to say the front desk was very unorganized and unprofessional. They didn't represent the company very well. I would ask a question and they'd give me one answer, and then a minute later change their minds about what I'd asked. They didn't seem confident in their jobs. Doctor was good, but office seemed hectic and unorganized.
She was very knowledgeable and great. I would highly recommend her. I recommended her to my colleagues right when I left.
Dr. Belenkova was great! She is very knowledgeable and especially clean; which, I feel, is so important when getting your eyes examined. She was very kind, caring, and informative. I would highly recommend Dr. Belenkova.
She is one of the best eye doctors I have ever visited.
Fast, professional, great service. Handled everything online from Zocdoc, so the appointment was super-easy. I will be back the next time I need to see an Optometrist.
Very good! Very knowledgeable! So gentle with her clients.
She's a miracle worker!!! My eyesight is now corrected to such a point that I don't need reading glasses, and the contacts I'm now wearing are soooo comfortable.
Excellent doctor in all aspects, and I can say this after years of care.
It's my third time seeing Dr. Belenkova. She is super nice, thorough and made my experience of fitting contacts great. The staff in the office was also very helpful.
She is one of the nicest eye doctors I've ever come across because she's patient and answers all of my questions. I would recommend her to anyone.
She is very professional and makes you feel comfortable.
Wonderful eye doctor! Very kind and willing to answer all of my questions.

Dr Belenkova was kind and informative. I felt listened to and that the appointment was easy and fluid. I don't honestly have too much to say because I'm pretty happy with the service I was given!

Dr. Belenkova is an consummate professional. Thorough and invariably pleasant and patient with questions.
She is excellent
The front desk lady who helped me was not intelligent at all. I had called three times to confirm if they checked my insurance and when I got there, she said she didn't know if they took my insurance even though I had been there before and called two days before! I had to call my carrier to get on the phone with her and explain that she took my coverage. My doctor was very thorough and I was happy with that part of the visit however when I was picking out glasses afterwards, the gentleman (who was very friendly and I thought was being helpful) only showed me the high end frames to choose from so I had to a lot out of pocket expenses - when I turned the corner I saw a bunch of other frames that weren't brand name that I could have chosen from but it was too late, he had already run my credit card and submit the order! That's on me as well but I'm still happy with my selection even if it was a bit more.
Incredibly professional, kind, and warm patient care. Highly recommended after seeing several other eye doctors.
Great and will be going here again.
It was fun! Informative and confidence inspiring.
She took the time to explain what she was doing. She didn't rush and was very pleasant.

Thank you!! Seamless & pleasant visit.
My eye exam was really thorough and the doctor made me quite comfortable during the process
Weird office. It felt like walking into a Jewelery Store in Russia. Extremely loud and tacky. Had a tough time finding the store. Nonetheless, doctor Dr. Jessica Tran was good and knowledgeable. So I would recommend her.
Awesome! Very thorough and knowledgeable.
She's been amazing as usual I've been going to her for some time now. You get great care and helpful in-sight with Belenkova.

Dr. Belenkova is extremely competent and caring. She is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile. thank you. malka
My visit was great overall, I arrived 30 minutes late for my appointment but was still seen promptly; I had to wait maybe 10 minutes. Dr. Belenkova is knowledgeable and professional, the staff is very nice and accommodating. My visit was short and sweet I was able to get an eye exam, glasses and contacts in under an hour. 5 stars across the board.
Quick he thorough, professional yet friendly. Would definitely come back.
I was referred to this office, and I absolutely love it. The staff are knowledgable, and they are super timely. I've never made an appointment and was not seen immediately. They are prompt, knowledgeable, and most of all polite and friendly. What more can you ask for?
Fantastic, great experience at an Eye exam. got though the entire process and ordered contacts within an hour.
Dr. Belenkova is kind and attentive and took the time out to explain things to me. The staff was efficient and friendly. I'd highly recommend.
She's very friendly, careful and listens to you. I love her!
I loved Dr. Belenkova. She was very kind and took her time with me. The only thing I didn't like about my visit, was when it came time to pick my glasses, the office is set up so you can't really walk around and pick them out yourself. The process is very different. You describe what you are looking for and an attendant gathers you some to try on. This didn't sit well with me. I felt like there were a lot of other glasses that I would have liked to try on but I didn't want to ask then to continue to hand them to me. Kind of robs something from the experience. I ended up going somewhere else to get glasses as a result. Everyone was very kind but when I am going to buy something as important and expensive as glasses. I want to feel comfortable and confident in my selection. It's hard to achieve that feeling when your pressured to rush out of courtesy.
Dr Belenkova was great. She was very thorough, careful and unrushed. Answered all my questions and was great at explaining things in my charts. Definitely would recommend her.
Very helpful and friendly
Knows her stuff, very professional and friendly. Highly recommend since the office is on point with service and you can glasses right there
She's wonderful! Efficient, honest, didn't try to upsell me on anything. Couldn't ask for more.
A breath of fresh air !!! Such a sweet doctor and the office staff are all quite exceptional!
she spent a lot of time with me and was very thorough.
She is wonderful!
Very professional, thorough eye examination. The entire office was friendly and very efficient.
Dr. Belenkova is a great doctor! Caring, knowledgeable and thorough. I highly recommend her.
I went to see Dr. Belenkova during my lunch break for an eye exam and contact lens fitting and my appointment was quick and easy. Dr. Belenkova was very personable. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for an eye doctor.
Dr Belenkova was excellent as usual!!! She makes you feel so comfortable throughout the exam. Sergio who takes care of the glasses also had excellent customer service. The receptionist on the other hand, needs imporvement in customer service/people skills. She was not horrible but she wasn't friendly either.
Excellent all around. Nice staff, great doctor.
She is lovely! Obviously very kind and explains the procedures as she goes. I highly recommend her!
Great- very knowledgable and fast wait time
Dr. Belenkova is awesome. Takes her time and explains everything and goes out of her way to be accomodating.
The administration of the office seems to be slightly disorganized. But the doctor is great and she answered all the questions that I had. Would recommend.
Dr. Belenkova was great! Very thorough, listened to all my concerns and was nice, personable and friendly, as were the admin staff! Professional and nice- highly recommended
The doctor was very attentive, listened to what I explained to her, examined my eyes very precisely and was very helpful. I waited not even 10 minutes before I was seen, the person who helped me chose my glasses was very helpful too. Great experience.
They moved my appt a day earlier at my request, which was perfect for me! Great (and nice) staff, the prelim exam was so quick and efficient! Dr. Belenkova was nice, unobtrusive, and great at explaining what she was doing. It was great to be with someone who was genuinely kind and didn't need to be refreshed on the last visit (2 years ago). Selecting glasses afterwards was great and getting contacts was easy, too! Seemed sensitive about my time but still willing to answer all my questions.
No complaints. She was great and couldn't have asked for a better experience.
the doc is very professional and did a thorough exam. but the staff didn't verify correctly about the cost of my annual exam even I mentioned two times up front, so it results in some unexpected cost at the end.
Dr Belenkova was very knowledgable and friendly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great eye doctor.
Dr. Belenkova is the BEST!
She was pleasant, knowledgeable and patient, and made the experience quite enjoyable.
She is very thorough and responsive to all of my questions and comments.
I really enjoyed my visit to Dr. Belenkova's office. She and her entire staff were extremely friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. I chose Dr. B off of ZocDoc beccause she was the highest rated OD in all of Midtown and now I understand why. She took her time with me (I needed extra testing) and ensured that I understood all of the test results. I would highly recommend Dr. B to anyone in need of a high profressional, highly intelligent OD.
Great visit. She is very nice, sweet, and does very thou row job.
Everyone in the office was incredibly nice and helpful! no complaints.
Everyone in the office was very nice and helpful. Dr. Belenkova was very sweet as well, knowledagable, nd honest about what I need and what I didn't. Went right back to the office and passed her name along to my colleagues.
