I have been using progressive lenses for several years; however, the tradeoff between the convenience of a single set of glasses vs. clarity and field width was disappointing. In fact, I purchased additional glasses just to use for computer work, in order to have accurate vision. On my first visit, Dr. Rabkin not only gave me a prescription that resulted in 20/15 eyesight at every focal length, she also recommended progressive lenses that are so superior to anything else I have ever had, that I feel my eyesight is restored to that of my childhood. My new progressive lenses are such a perfect match to what I need that I can wear them all of the time, including sitting in front of a computer screen for several hours each day, without tiring. For the first time, there is no ""spacey"" feeling when walking with glasses on. In addition, she took the time to help me select the most beautiful and lightweight frames ever. The store, Vizio Optic, carries extraordinarily stylish frames (not cheap, but you get what you pay for!) Altogether, I felt thoroughly pampered, as though I had been to a spa.\r
Unfortunately, as a new patient, the wait to see her is long, but well worth it - in my case 4 months. Also, she has chosen to not take on any new contact lense patients. I was disappointed until she told me that I would not be able to attain the same level of precision with contact lenses as with these progressive lenses. Until you experience what the correct prescription and lense can do for you, you won't believe it.\r
Her office is very conveniently located, and I have never had a parking problem. She is a delightful woman, who is both professional and friendly. Speaking as a very fussy and particular person, I promise you could not do any better than Dr. Rabkin.
Pros: Excellent technical skills, great product selection, convenient location, lovely atmosphere.
Cons: Length of time to get initial visit. After that, no problem.
