If you want to go to a doctor's office that doesn't care about patients and only about taking your money, then this is the place for you! I worked here for only a few days and the only thing I can say is the owner Dr. Christopher Chido is this most money hungry doctor I've ever worked for. The employees are instructed to upsale patients and overcharge them and they're given goals that are only based on the money they make not patient satisfaction. They belittle patients who want to take their scripts to a cheaper place. I witnessed two patients upset with the quality of their glasses and the manager was so short and rude to these people that they asked for her supervisor. After she dismissed them with 'I'm the Manager' she proceeded to talk about how horrible these patients were amongst all of the employees. I've worked in healthcare for almost ten years and have never witnessed any office that is so uncaring about patients needs and so focused on milking patients for all the money they have. I was instructed to be pushy and firm when scheduling patients and not give them options. At first I was upset that this job didn't work out but after reading and witnessing first hand how they treat patients and employees I will say I'm very thankful I no longer work for these crooks. You'll notice that none of the employees have been there more than a year and that the doctors are usually fresh out of school... At vision centers of Las vegas you'll be treated as a cash cow until they milk you dry and then they'll forget to call you back until next year when they can make more money off of you and your insurance.
After being a long term patient of Summerlin Vision I will be looking for new doctor. They were very unhelpful with my vision after I received a new prescription since I didn't order my contacts from them. Although I did get my new prescription glasses from them. I fear they gave contact company wrong prescription since my vision is worse than before, but are unwilling to help. Won't be returning.
These quacks markup prices over 300% only one office has a lab and they do the most inferior work I have ever seen in my years of optical service. The head Dr Christopher Chido hires new staff almost every 3 months so he never has to pay for health benefits for employees. Steer clear of these crooks and all their locations! !
I have been going to the summerlin vision centers for a long time. They are always able to get me in for an appointment that is convenient for my schedule and most times the wait is reasonable. Doctors are very knowledgeable and personable and make you feel comfortable during the exam.
They have an excellent selection of of High End Eyeglasses as well as Sunglasses.The staff is very friendly. They also seem to be a bit pricier in terms of service.I don`t mind the price difference , but they`re service as a whole needs to be better if they want to justify the difference in price. Long wait times even when I had a scheduled appointment .Very disapointed in that part of it

I love going to the vision centers. The doctors are great but the selection of glasses is what keeps me coming back. I buy all of my glasses and sunglasses from them. They have designers and styles you can't find anywhere else in town. If you are looking for a stylish pair of glasses I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I have been going here for awhile and always thought they were good. My most recent experience here has made them great in my opinion. I needed to get new glasses. I fell in love with one pair and had to have them. They said it would be a few weeks before I would be able to pick them up. I was going to an event a week and a half later and really wanted to wear my new glasses. The staff said they would see what they could do get my glasses to be as quickly as possible. They made me the happiest customer when they called to tell me I could come pick them up the day before my event. I am so grateful to them!

It seems a bit like these other reviews are a bit suspect. If you check out Yelp, those review are much more in line with what I have experienced with Summerlin Vision Center.
I started going to SVC in 1999 and I stayed, even though they are ridiculously overpriced, because I liked Dr. F. When he passed in 2001, things went seriously downhill. I went to SVC last week to pick up a prescription for contacts and waited 45 minutes, even though there were 5 girls working the front desk. No one had checked the board and I waited for 20 minutes before getting up and staying something, then they told me to sign in AGAIN. To top that off, the female doctor who I have gone to the last two years continually pushes her business cards at me at the end of each appointment, and when I got to pick up my contacts, I get the hard sell to buy contacts at 200% markup.
I will not be going back to SVC, and I am truly saddened as it used to be a great office with a caring SMALL staff.

I felt like I'd been screwed over every time I went to my optometrist so I decided to make a change. I was looking for a straightforward eye exam without the hard up sell, and Dr. Chiodo and Dr.Podloski at The Vision Centers were great. I was referred by a friend and I can honestly say It was the best decision we could've made. Friendly, professional, and hip! No waiting and most importantly no hard selling. I actually walked away spending half of what I would have normally spent at my old Optometrists. I would highly recommend The Vision Centers for great eye care!
