“Dr. Vo and her staff were super friendly, efficient, and the apt. was affordable.”
– Desiree Abrams

“Dr. Vo is a great doctor, but I was extremely irritated that they charge $50 to give me the PD, something which BY LAW they need to write on the prescription form. The prescription/eye exam is an $85 charge, and you’re going to wring more money from me for the PD? Unethical and greedy.”

“eye exam was perfect. Doctor was terrific and efficient. Purchased lenses for reading sunglasses and believe the price is much too expensive. Was not given an option for a less expensive set of lenses for the sunglasses which I felt was not professional.”

“Had a thorough eye exam with the optometrist, Dr. Bieber, who also did a nice job answering any questions I had (this was the first time I had seen her in the several years I’ve been going to VisualEyes for exams). I felt that she did an excellent job of figuring out my proper prescription. I was very happy with the experience and would gladly recommend her to others (5 stars for her). The receptionist at the front desk was also helpful and attentive, as was the technician who did the initial part of my exam (depth perception, color blindness test, etc.). A downside to the visit, though, came after I asked the optometrist if I could have my PD reading included with my prescription information (which she then indicated I could get from one of the opticians). The woman I then spoke to said that this 1-minute measurement would cost $50. Seriously???? I understand that they don’t want people to go elsewhere to purchase glasses, but that response guaranteed right there that I will NEVER purchase eyeglasses from them. Ever. Honestly, they would have done better by simply saying that it was their policy not to provide this information to customers instead of trying to extort money for the service (which does not, btw, require any sophisticated technical skills). So, thumbs up on the eye exam, and thumbs way down for the PD measurement policy.”

“I appreciate that I was informed when an earlier slot opened up the day of my appointment. Everyone was very friendly. While I believe I received a thorough evaluation, I’ve been in practices before that had more pre-testing equipment for diagnostic testing and there were only two devices used for pre-testing at VisualEyes.”
– Kristen Reynolds

I came not for glases, but suffering from a stye in my left eye. Their clinician saw me right away, and provided a very thorough chek up of my general eye health and diagnosed the stye, for which I was given an anti-biotic ointment and care instructions. Staff were all caring, professional and thorough. Really could not be happier with the kindness and promptness — I was very grateful!”

“I felt the staff was helpful and kind in helping me pick frames but then tried to up-sell me in every way possible. First, she quoted me a price on lenses with the most expensive anti-glare coating. The only reason I knew there were options is because I asked why the price was so high and then she told me I could get a cheaper coating that would meet my needs. Then, she sold me UV protection on the Trivex lenses I purchased. I later learned that both Trivex and polycarbonate lenses are inherently 100% UV protected so no additional coating is needed. I called and was told they will refund my money but had I not done research I would have been ripped off. I am not sure if she truly didn’t know her product or was trying to rip me off, but either way it’s not a good appearance. I recently read many negative reviews of this store but had a good experience in the past (2-3 yrs ago) so I decided to return. After this experience, I am inclined to try a new eye ware boutique next time. I am willing to pay higher prices for nicer glasses but I hate feeling like I am bring ripped off.”

“I had an injury to me eye, so I made an on-line appointment to see the doctor. The first appointment on-line wasn’t for two days, but when the office called to confirm my appointment, having read my comments about the injury, the doctor brought me in that same night. She took me in as soon as I arrived at the office and gave my eye a thorough examination. The doctor assured me that there was no real damage to the eye, and she prescribed a medication to relieve the pain I was experiencing. All in all, despite the pain I was in, a very pleasant office visit.”
– Donna Norris

“I have been going here for several years now and I wouldn’t think switching given the Shirlington location’s high quality staff. Arminah provides that best customer service I’ve ever had, hands down. She’s incredibly responsive and remembers all of the little things, including complicated insurance information, details of my last visit, and even my voice when I call in, all of which make for an enjoyable experience.”

“It was easy to get an appointment the same week I called and my check-up was quick and simple. I had brought work to do while waiting, but was seen immediately so barely had a chance to pull it out of my bag. The staff were also helpful in picking out a new frame for my glasses.”

“Overall it was ok. I was surprised my appointment was with a different doctor. All confirmations said dr Vo but she wasn’t in the day of my appointment. Not professional to not inform me of this change. The other doctor was fine though. The office assistant was not very customer friendly. She had a bit of an attitude. When she realized she wasn’t going to sell me frames she asked another lady who was much more customer focused to help her. That lady was supposed to call me back yesterday about an insurance question and I have still not heard from her. I believe in customer service so this experience was not the best.”

“The doctor was very knowledgeable and helpful. I would have liked the woman that helped me with the billing and getting new glasses to have explained the bill a little clearer and in more detail before telling me the final cost.”

“The examination is very thorough and they are extremely helpful in picking out new frames and lenses.”
– Maria Jackson

“The experience with the Dr. was very nice. However, the receptionist tried to charge me for services that my insurance covered. Luckily, I knew and confirmed my coverage. I paid the co-pay that I was expecting and they said they would follow up. I was right indeed and did not owe them anything more. Luckily, I questioned the the charges but I am sure many would have just paid and not thought anything of it. This left a pretty bad taste in my mouth, especially since I confirmed my coverage with them before coming in for my appointment.”

“The first pair of glasses your staff picked out was the one I went with. Great taste! I like that she was truthful in her opinion about glasses I was trying on.”

– Beverly Rogers

“The people were friendly but the frames are insanely expensive. I reluctantly paid for a pair of frames thinking maybe I had just forgotten how expensive new glasses are but when I got home I looked through my records to see how much I had paid at my last optometrist and realized I had paid less than half of what I spent at Visual Eyes. I immediately called them to ask for my order to be cancelled so I could get a refund but all they would give me was store credit. This was less than an hour since I had been in their store so it’s not like the glasses were already in production. It would have been easy for them to cancel the order but they refused.”

“This is my 2nd year go to see Dr. Vo, and I like her. I haven’t had to wait longer than 5/10-mins to see her. I was looking for a Dr that would know my eyes and any changes that would occur or can occur and Dr. Vo has let me know things that will eventually change in my eyes, and I appreciate that.”

“Unprofessional staff. The WORST. Every time I walk by your store I point YOU out to my friends and tell them NEVER to walk in through your doors. I can’t believe I’m still getting emails from you even though I unsubscribe, and even called you to get off your list. No honor in keeping appointments and no honor in unsubscribe requests. I should Yelp about you.”

“When I made my appointment, I was confirmed with Dr Vo, who wasn’t even in the day of my appointment. When I walked in, I wasn’t even greeted by the receptionist as I walked up to her desk. I had to ASK her myself if I needed to sign in. I ended up seeing Dr Bieber. I was only in to have an annual eye exam to renew my Rx for my contact lenses, but I wanted to try some others as well. She went downstairs (storage room???) to grab me a few different lenses and I sat alone at a small desk with a mirror to try them on. She re-checked my eyes for fit after I had them on and then disappeared downstairs. I sat upstairs for almost 20 minutes when I finally asked the receptionist where the doctor was, to which she replied “getting some more contacts downstairs”. So I waited another 5 minutes. Dr Bieber came back upstairs, still chewing on her lunch and told the receptionist that I was “all set”. At this point I just paid my co-pay and left. I ended up having to call them three more times to get them to send my Rx so I could order my contacts online. I don’t know how this place is still open – I’ve never had issues at any other business in Shirlington.”
