Dr. Lamar Zigler is a good doctor and thorough, but, in my opinion, this office is more concerned about making money than in making happy customers who love their eyeware. I was charged for a contact lens exam after I specifically said I did not need one (I only needed glasses). The whole reason I specifically asked to NOT have a contact lens appointment was because I was so shocked at the cost of one at my last appointment. I was staying in the same lenses and just needed a renewed prescription, but for some reason I had to be "fitted" for the lenses that I had worn for years. The prices that they charge seem to be VERY inflated as well (much more than what my insurance company will cover, and also much more than other offices I have now priced out.) The glasses that they made for me were way too big, and I could not see out of them properly (everything looked very tiny, I would get dizzy wearing them, and they fell way down below my nose so I constantly had to adjust them). I spoke with the eyeglass technician and her response was that I should keep them for a while and perhaps my eyes would adjust to them. The glasses were ridiculously expensive because I was talked into buying a designer brand, and after having them for over a year neither my eyes, nor the size of my head head has gotten "used to" these glasses. I have mostly worn contacts this past year, unless in an absolute emergency. I have since moved to a new doctor after going to this practice for a few years. They checked my glasses prescription and said the strength was wrong (much too strong) and that it was very obvious my glasses did not fit, nor could that frame fit my head (it was too wide).
I am fortunate in that I go in yearly for my exam and then every 2-3 years I replace my eyeglasses. Therefore, I really only stop in once or twice a year, max. Every time I walk in the door it makes me smile to be greeted on a first name basis. When I go in for my yearly exam, I am always so pleasantly surprised to find out they stocked up on decaf coffee bc they remember it is what I drink. While waiting to get back to the exam, and even during the initial testings, there are inquiries into how the family is doing and how things have been going at work. The exam is complete and I always feel the explanations about each of my results are done in layman's terms, while the doctor is also open to questions or a my need for clarification. When getting new frames, there is no pressure to purchase anything and my questions and inquiries are always given prompt answers and/or solutions. The annual exam is usually done within the hour and my fitting and selection is usually done within an hour (unless I make the silly mistake of bringing family to "help" pick the right lenses!) When I run out of my supplements, I can email the office, and they ship it out to me! Visiting Northwest Vision is a professional, personal, and pleasant experience every time. Thanks, team!! See you in a year!
I was having eye issues and was sent to a neuro opthamologist and waited 4 months to get in. After still having issues I mentioned to NW Vision that I wanted to make sure Dr Min had gotten a report from the specialist. They had me come in and see Dr Sims since she specialized in binocular vision and in just a week I saw her, had comprehensive tests and she took her time with me performing testing to determine my double vision problem. Very friendly, professional, patient as is the rest of the staff. I started going to that office when I moved from my hometown and was referred to Dr Min by my former eye doctor in Toledo. Dr Min is also friendly, professional and patient and I highly recommend both of these doctors. They have state of the art equipment and I like that this means they don't have to dilate my eyes for exams since they provide this equipment that eliminates that step. Great selection of eyewear if you wear glasses.
A very thorough exam for our 11 year old daughter. Dr. Breslow helped her feel very comfortable with the exam and explained things to her. She absolutely LOVES her glasses (her first) and talks about them constantly. Dr. Breslow explained her eye condition and how it might progress as she ages and what we can do to help her vision. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended!
I had the best experience w/this surgeon, and surgery than most of my past surgeries. Dr. Utrata was very professional and knowledgable, and made me feel confident about my surgery. The nurses and other staff were all friendly, and most accommodating. The Arena itself is really nice and well kept. I will be returning to Arena Eye Surgeons and to Dr. Utrata in the future.
I would highly recommend Dr. Lamar Zigler and his staff. I have been going to this doctor for almost 20 years. Dr. Zigler is a great doctor and they have wonderful opticians and contact lens technicians. Not the least expensive place in town but it is worth the cost for the quality of care.
Molina Medicaid /// pays 4 up 2 18.00$$ They don't have @ big selection of frames @ that cost ... especially with no source of income .... see what I'm forced 2 do pay out of pocket which still is a lot
