I will be a loyal customer here for years to come.

Hands down one of the best medical-related experiences I've ever had. I've had increasingly, mild, blurry vision for a few years, which prompted me to get an eye exam about a year ago (at another facility), and was given a very expensive prescription, after what felt like a careless exam, which hasn't been helping.

After just minutes of listening to my symptoms, and doing a VERY thorough eye exam, Dr. Derco determined it to be astigmatism, and had my new prescription dialed in perfectly, everything was crystal clear again! Everyone was so warm and kind from the front desk, to the doc, to the gentleman handling the new lenses.

I will be a loyal customer here for years to come.

Exceeded my expectations

Thank you Dr. Derco, Mr. Philips, Carol, and American Vision team!!! They took care of me, laid all the facts, and got me through the examination in a jiffy!

I’m from NC, so I’m always wary of going to things like this in NY (had to get a new doctor, dentist, etc.) The local place I go to in NC— those exams take up half my day, they’re always booked within a year, and the staff are just not as kind as America Vision’s! America Vision exceeded my expectations. They're an honest business who are looking out for your best interests, which I respect them the most for. I will keep coming back to them -- looking forward to getting my new lens!

Thank you!

I’ve had a lot of bad experiences when it came to eye doctors but I’ve finally found one where I see myself becoming a regular patient. I was seen immediately, no wait time. The doctors were attentive to my needs especially when helping me find frames suitable for my face. I would say it was a little on the pricier side but worth it for the service I received. Thank you!
