The staff and the Dr. here gave me a great experience. I would highly recommend going to Pillen for your next eye appointment.I had a wonderful experience at Pillen Optical. Everyone was so nice and you could tell they wanted me to be comfortable and attended to. I will definitely be returning to this location for my next eye appointment.

, I made my appointment with Daniel Holloway, not his wife (they both work there). When I arrived, they gave me her instead of him. Not really thinking it to be a huge deal I went ahead with it. Frankly I didn't find her to be that personable.Upon leaving, I was informed I had to pay a $20 fee to even get my trial contacts. What?! I have never, in my 25 years of having lenses and multiple eye doctors, experienced this. They say it will go toward your contacts purchase, so basically, they are trying to force you to go through them to order. It's a non-refundable fee, no fee, no trial contacts. They also wont' release your prescription without the fee. By the way, they did mail me my prescription, and they didn't pay postage, so the post man made us pay the small handling fee!Well, after I got the trials and determined them to be fine, I called Pillen to get a quote on their lense rates. They were actually really great, but I still wanted to look online.After determining I could not beat Pillen's price, I called them to order, only to be quoted OVER A HUNDRED DOLLARS MORE than I had just been quoted. I told them so, and they said there was nothing they could do.Fine.I decided to order online.However, I noticed my prescription seemed weird....so weird I couldn't get ANY online website to even offer what I needed. I called one of the websites who told me, this prescription seems weird, you need to check it's accuracy with your optometrist. I called Pillen.They wrote me the WRONG PRESCRIPTION.This could have damaged my eyes had I ordered what they initially wrote me, and then I also would have been out a lot of money on a wrong prescription.They have since sent me the corrected prescription, and I ordered my contacts from another provider.All of this to say, this was SO MANY THINGS THAT WENT WRONG, and they never offered me a thing for quoting me wrong prices, giving me the wrong doctor, AND writing me the wrong prescription.AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Our family has been going to Pillen Optical for the last 35 years. We can always count on them to provide us with our glasses and contact lenses at a very reasonable price.

They are way too expensive and the customer service sucks. The doctors are nice but the staff is horrible. Save yourself a headache and go elsewhere!
Tips & Advices
To find a professional that fits your needs and wants, look for an optometrist with the proper licensing and compliance with state-specific legalities as well as these qualities: attentiveness, ability to listen, ethics, compassion, ability to communicate effectively and willingness to spend time with patients.
Vision, like dental, is often an additional voluntary cost for employers who provide health care coverage. As a result, it may not be included in basic company-sponsored insurance. Those who do have access to this type of coverage - or Medicare - often only pay for a portion of their eye exam services.
The cost of an appointment with an optometrist varies based on the services required. While a typical eye exam can range from $50 to $250, depending on location. If if glasses or contact lenses are prescribed, or tests are needed, the overall expense of an optometrist visit can increase.
The American Optometric Association recommended that patients have their first eye exam at six months of age, followed by another at 3 years old, and again at school age. At that point, Regular annual exams are recommended.
Ophthalmologists are eye doctors that have received higher levels of training than both opticians and optometrists, and can also perform eye surgery when necessary. Opticians design and fit eyeglasses, frames, and lenses that are prescribed by optometrists and ophthalmologists. They do not perform vision tests or write prescriptions for visual aids. Optometrists fall between ophthalmologists and opticians. Optometrists can detect and treat eye abnormalities, prescribe lenses, and complete eye exams, but cannot perform eye surgery.
