As the more complex lenses I need didn't seem covered in the numerous favorable reviews of "88", I feared my experience wouldn't match that of those buying more standard 'grindings'. I needn't have worried. I wanted Photochromatic ["Transition"] lenses that darken in sunlight and I needed Progressive lenses that serve the same function as BiFocals but with a smooth transition rather than the visable line separating the 2 magnifications. 1st off; I knew these couldn't be ready in the amazingly few hours it usually takes these folks to supply most glasses. It used to take my 'standard' Optician at least a week to obtain the lenses I need. '88' promised my new ones in 3 days at the outside and had them ready in 2. As to price, while I'm leery of ordering lenses on the Internet as they need to be centered exactly for each individual face, and so on, '88''s $240 price was within 2% of the best deal I could find anywhere On-Line and that would have been an unknown supplier and without individual fitting [& re-visits later if needed] and advice. '88' was perfectly fine about my bringing in my own special Half-Frames bought on the web, though they were loosing the mark-up. And their advice regarding the several trade-offs & choices I had to make was quite cogent, and more importantly, did not seem shaded by any desire to sell an un-needed feature or up-grade.

" Looking for a good optometrist can be rough. I never want to settle for less, so I always try to get others' opinions on who is good and professional. I have to ask a lot of people from work because they are the ones who share my health insurance plan. Nobody really had a particularly good optometrist in mind, but someone said they had went to East Side Vision one day and were impressed by how fast everything went. I hate to wait (who doesn’t?) and I like everything fast. I looked up the clinic, which was great that they have a website, called up, and within 5 minutes, I had an appointment with Dr. Natan Dorfman. Exceeded my expectations, everything went fast and easy, and I got my desired results."
"Great! I went to East Side Vision for an eye check due to constant throbbing headaches. After squinting through my extensive eye exam and then Dr. Natan told me in a very clever and tactful manner that I wasn't getting any younger, I was escorted to the vast selection of specs and an equally helpful staff got me fitted for some trendy specs that actually have me excited about wearing glasses despite the fact that I WAS getting older."
