Modern Eye has a phenomenal staff that completely understands their products and what will work on a customers face. The selection of glasses is the best I have EVER seen! They have amazing brands and styles. The doctors are also wonderful. This is the BEST place for eye care needs!!

Pros: Service, Staff, Selection

They take insurance and my glasses ended up being pretty cheap (under 100 bucks including lenses, with insurance). Their styles aren't as outrageously priced as I thought they would be. I also got my eyes checked here, and that was great too!

I went to Modern Eye this week for an exam and some new frames. Dr. Bryan is the best optometrist I've ever had -- funny, smart, inquisitive, and patient. He took his time explaining everything about my prescription and gave me great advice on clearing up a couple of minor eye issues (redness, clogged glands, etc.) that I didn't even know I had and that no previous optometrist had ever noticed. If there's a better OD in the Philly area, I've never met 'em.

The rest of the staff was similarly fantastic. When I started looking at frames with one staff member, two others immediately put down what they were doing to come over and give advice and opinions and recommend their favorite frames. All the frames I tried on were unusual, hip, and reasonably priced. No one pushed me to start wearing contacts (as past eye places have) or gave me the hard sell on expensive lens coatings or treatments. Everyone introduced themselves and asked my name.

All told, I had a lot of fun spending an afternoon at the eye doctor and I'm excited to go back and pick up my glasses. How many people can say that about their eye place?

The last reviewer has some funny ideas. I think he is confusing medical care with emergency services. I consider my general practitioner to be excellent, but I wouldn't expect to find him at my beck and call at 2 AM if I had an emergency medical situation. Likewise with Modern Eye. The owner, Dr. Chris, and his associate, Dr. Bryan are excellent doctors who keep normal medical office hours. (Yes, they provide medical care, dispense and fit for contact lens wearers, provide complete medical examinations of the eye with state-of-the-art equipment, screen for lasik, all the things you would expect from a good eye doctor). If there is a problem, they refer you to a specialist or a surgeon - just like with my general practitioner - who also doesn't perform surgeries. (Although once when I was in Modern Eye, the doctor was in his office pulling a piece of metal out of someone's cornea).

Also, I wouldn't call Modern Eye's frame selection "little." In my experience, they have the largest selection of cool frames in the city.

Modern Eye is an optical shop. They have a decent little selection of trendy eyewear with all of the brand names. However, in no way should you confuse a decent optical shop with a place where you can receive great eye care. They do not have a an after hours service. In fact they do not provide eye care per se. If you are a long time contact lens wearer, looking for LASIK or a full service office this is NOT the place for you. And yes they play great music. However, if at two AM your eyelid becomes red and swollen, they will not be there to assist you. This doesn't detract from how cool they are, just how much actual medical attention you could receive. So if you live in Center City and you're looking to buy glasses then great, but if you need eye care, I would suggest Bala Eye Center. They have just as good an optical shop in the same store as doctors who could perform surgery and emergency medical treatment if needed.

I am amazed that this place doesn't make the "best of philly" every year. Someone's asleep at the wheel. I've tried most of the nicer optical shops in Philly as well as New York and Boston and I gotta tell ya they don't hold a candle to this place. I know New Yorkers in fact who come to Philly to go to Modern Eye because of the selection of hip stuff and the customer service. They always have the coolest stuff and the staff doesn't blink at spending an hour or two with you. I started going to Modern Eye after getting fed up with snooty "best of" places in the city and I'm glad I switched. The first time I went I used a prescription from a previous doctor who screwed it up. The guys at Modern Eye didn't blink at remaking my glasses. Next time I went with the doctor who owns the place and got the most comprehensive eye exam of my life. These people are on top of it. They always explain all my options and you can tell that their recommendations aren't just to pad a commission. Do yourself a favor.

Oh, plus, their music selection is the coolest, most interesting I've heard anywhere.

I've also done business with their center city location and reviewed it. Took a friend to the University City branch. Amazing consistency with both stores. These people know what their doing and how to do it.

Always a great experience @ Modern Eye. The styles range from conservative to bold colors and shapes. The prices are pretty reasonable compared to other eye wear shops in town. The service was excellent! Take a visit and believe me.... you will be sucked in. Enjoy~

Absolutely flawless experience! I have been to some pretty crummy optical goods merchants, and I didn't really have any high expectations, but Modern Eye really surprised me! As others have mentioned, the store is beautifully decorated, and the staff very helpful and professional. The doctor was very friendly, thorough and meticulous. I couldn't have asked for more.
