Having worn contact lenses for about 45 years, I had gotten to the point where my vision could not be corrected and was told I had cataracts. Dr. Solinsky was recommended to me and I got an appointment within a week or so. The staff was friendly, a technician gave me an initial exam within a few minutes of my arrival and I had my exam by Dr. Solinsky shortly after that. He confirmed my guess that I had operable cataracts, explained my options and what was involved in the surgery. A few days later, I had computerized eye measurements and vision analysis performed by one of his technicians who also scheduled the first surgery as soon as possible.
Although the concept of eye surgery made me very uncomfortable, Dr. Solinsky made me feel very comfortable and it was obvious that he is extremely experienced and competent. It was also obvious that he both trains his staff well and invests in the latest equipment.
He sees his patients the morning after surgery to make sure that everything is fine and the distance vision in the first eye (they aren't both done at the same time) was already better than 20/20. We discussed the options for the second eye and decided to do that as the "reading" eye so that, in theory, I wouldn't need glasses. That theory turned into reality after the second surgery and, for the first time in nearly 60 years, I DO NOT WEAR GLASSES...EVER!. His staff scheduled several follow-up visits to confirm that the intraocular lenses remained in place, that the eyes had healed and that my sight was stable. I am amazed and delighted every morning when I open my eyes and can see everything clearly.
I should also mention that Dr. Solinsky's staff is very diverse, extremely caring, experienced and well trained. He also has a very diverse group of patients and everyone seemed to be treated equally well and politely by his multilingual staff. I also discovered when reading a story about him, that Dr. Solinsky and his staff contribute time and materials at community health centers to provide vision assistance to those who aren't even able to get to his office. All in all, I can't imagine a better doc or a more positive experience.

I was recommended by a friend to go to Solinsky Eyecare because he loved it there so much. Once I got there, I could see why. The front desk staff was very welcoming and helped me with all the paperwork that was needed. I was helped by a very nice and professional technician first, then I saw the doctor. He listened to what I was looking for for my contact lenses and gave me some helpful recommendations for my glasses. The exam was very thorough and he answered all my questions. The contacts fit great and I can see quite well. I am going to recommend Solinsky Eyecare to my friends, family, and co-workers.

I have been going to Solinsky Eyecare for over a decade, since I was in high school. I now live a few hours away, but when I need my eyes checked, I still wait til I'm coming back to West Hartford for a visit. Dr. Solinsky is one of the nicest doctors I have ever been to - he has always treated me with respect and helped me understand my changing vision.

The medical facilities and approach are excellent for eye examinations, etc. Do not use Solinsky Opticians to order glasses. They're very expensive and do provide good service.

I have been going to Solinsky Eye care for years and it amazing me how up to date they are in the Eye world as they have all the top of the line equipment. The Dr. is one of the most personable individuals I've met and always makes me feel like my eyes are getting the best treatment.

I went to Solinkys Eye Clinic for an eye check up - and have been having problems with my eyes and bills ever since. At the first go, the gave me the wrong prescription. They also billed me to the wrong insurer. I had to make several phone calls and personal visits to get my insurer information correct - there are just too many different people answering the phone, who do not look back through the records, so I had to explain the issue multiple times. And none of them knew what was covered by my insurance company. I had to conference my insurance agent with them to convince them. In the mean time, my eye problems continued, and I went for a follow up checkup. A different doctor looked at my eyes this time and found that they had made a mistake and had given me the wrong prescription. They corrected the prescription, but would not refund me for the wrong contact lenses I had to buy because of the wrong prescription. To top it all, they once again billed the wrong insurer for my follow up appointment... I am writing this review so people are forewarned - Solinsky's eye clinic staff do not understand insurance policies, and they are too busy for their patients. Be prepared to spend a lot of time to deal with issues

My family and I have been going to Solinsky eye care for many years. We have been pleased by the professional staff and the many ancillary services offered. Dr. Solinsky has a great bedside manner and has excellent surgical eye skills. His office equipment is top notch. He accepts most major insurances. You can't go wrong with that practice.

My family and I have used this practice as needed. Very friendly staff and Dr. Solinsky was the best! Knowledgeable, patient and kind. A doctor that didn't rush through my exam to see the next guy. A doctor's opinion that i can trust. A refreshing change.

Just not happy with this practice or staffing. Too many people doing too many things. The Dr. was nice and seemed very knowledgeable but I was just not comforable overall with the practice. Another family member uses this practice and is happy but I was not and will not bring my family there.
