Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

    They have beautiful eyewear and they excel in customer service! I had a great experience and hope to come back soon!

    Christie Casuso - FIU

    I've been to many optometrists in the past few years and this is definitely the best. Amazing customer service, the doctor did the most thorough eye exam I've had in a very long time and the prices are amazing. Would absolutely recommend!

    Caroline Pate - FIU

    I just got a pair of glasses this week. The process was seamless from start to finish. You can't beat the price for an eye exam, and they offered a huge selection of glasses from affordable to high end. I'm happiest that my glasses were ready the next day. Dr. Lee was great. She offered a few options for what I needed.

    Haidy Andrada - UNF

    Super sweet and helpful guys. They walked me through the entire process and helped me pick out the perfect frames to complement my face shape. You will be in good hands! Doctor is super efficient and nice. Best eye doctor experience ever.

    Kathy Ho - UCF

    The staff is extremely friendly, the service is simple and fast. I was able to get my eye exam and contact lenses ordered in less than 30 minutes. Would definitely recommend going here for all optical needs.

    Vannecer Nevado - UCF

    These guys were amazing! the Dr looked kind of scary, but he was really a great guy. I had been in and out all day trying to pick the right frames for my face. Every time I went in some one came over and would help me with whatever I needed and would give me honest opinions. At the end of the day, the whole team that was closing Wed 9/28 stayed for an extra 10 minutes or so to help me choose what frames looked best out of the 4 I had picked out. They also found the best deal they could for me, which was amazing. This place will always have my loyalty. I recommend/will be recommending College optical to anyone looking for a place to get an exam and purchase glasses.
