For my first pair of glasses I could not have dreamt up a better experience. The staff at Modern Eye is beyond helpful, in fact, they are very down to earth people, who actually are having fun at their jobs! I was pleasantly surprised that staff members like Liz, Marian and Will were so genuine, and sincere and having as much fun as I was as I tried on every pair of glasses, staring at myself and them asking "these?" "these? "These"? I felt that they are very honest and forth right about the pros and cons of choosing the right a pair of glasses, as well as educating me about available upgrades. They listened well and understood all the gazillion variables that go in to matching the person to the right pair of glasses. They patiently guided me to make a great choice (their styles are great!) Last, Dr. Machamer is probably the hippest Doctor I've ever come across, for sure, and so personable (and *cute* always a bonus!!) I walked away feeling a tad hipper, definitely more educated and smiling from the fun that I had in there. Modern Eye is lucky to have this team of people! FIVE STARS

I have been going to Modern Eye for years. First met the owner at the gym and said I like your glasses, so he handed me his card and he was the optometrist. Have gone thru several styles as they change and it is always fun to be served by very helpful folks who care. I take in glasses that I might have slept in the night before needing adjustment. They are not always interested in a sale and there is no pressure to buy, but you will want to. From vintage to practical to outrageous, they have them all. And they are worth the price. I used to have to take a bus over the river, but now Modern Eye is located a block away from work so I have to pull myself away from wanting to go buy another pair and have as many as Elton John, but that will never happen and I can always dream. It's now time to get an eye exam and look again for something fun to ware.

Under cover of night, I snuck up real close and rang the Liberty Bell with my ball peen hammer.
The resonance shattered my eyeglass lenses.
Will was very understanding, recounting his own eyewear incident chipping off a hunk of Plymouth Rock, and made my new glasses ASAP.
Modern Eye is fantastic!

already wrote a review for the Modern Eye in West Philly. I recently got a new pair of glasses and thought I'd try the Center City location. I was not disappointed. It's a great looking place and the staff is amazingly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They helped me pick out a cool frame by Mykita, cool and modern (hey! just like the name Modern Eye!).

Don't fall for the hype of other places. This place beats them all. Amazing staff, cool doctors, ultra cool decor, ultra, ultra cool eyeglasses. And great prices. I've been to them all and this place beats them hands down.
