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?
