What to Expect

When you visit our office, you will be warmly welcomed and we can answer any questions you may have about completing the paperwork so that Dr. Estrada Optometry may see you. Our team will work together to evaluate your eyes and provide relevant eye care treatment information, review your vision benefits and payment options, fit you for glasses or contact lenses, and focus on exceeding all of your expectations. If at any time you have questions about the process or your specific health information, please ask.

I hate going to the optometrist. I mean, I hate it more than going to the dentist - so much that I'll even avoid it for years. But, I had to go because I lost my glasses, and I couldn't believe it. They were so kind and easygoing that for once it wasn't bad. I didn't have to wait long for them to call my name, they took me through all of the eye exams quickly but didn't make me feel like I was being rushed, and they even promised to "warn" me before doing the glaucoma test (I really hate that one). The optometrist himself talked to me about my concerns, like the pupil eye drop thing, and even joked around so I felt more comfortable. When I went back to pick up my glasses they even gave me a couple extra eye glass wipes because of the wait (which actually wasn't long). I highly recommend this place, especially for people with anxiety.
