I definitely recommend this place, located in the U-district on the Ave, especially if you want to get contacts. Richard Ackman, the contact specialist, is great. He’s very friendly and informative, letting you know about all the options that are available for you, and you get to try out as many trial lenses of different types as you want. They are helpful with dealing with insurance and let you know what you are eligible for. The optometrist is very nice as well, though I spent most of my time with the contacts guy. I’ve recommended this place to several friends, and I know that they’ve had good experiences as well. They also have a decent selection of eye glasses.
