I have been been using Oculus20/20 267 Smith St location) for over 10 years and have only had great experiences. The employees (I have worked with Tamara) She is very knowledgeable and helpful. They are able to suggest different frames and shapes which work for me, without having to try on dozens of different glasses. Dr. Amy's prescription eye examination are also prompt and accurate (I have my glasses measured each year by her and the prescription placed in the glasses is always right-on).

Basically, I am hooked. In the past 10 years, I have never purchased glasses elsewhere, and I am planning on sticking with Oculus 20/20 in the future.

This is a compliment to Oculus 20/20. I had a set budget in my flex spending account specifically for my eyeglasses. I was honest with the owner with what I could afford. An hour and a half later, I had done an eye exam and purchased a Robert Marc frame. I paid a better price than I had the year before. The owner was so happy to see me again I really felt that they cared for my needs. They worked with my budget and gave me a great discount for being an existing client.

This is a complaint against the Oculus 20/20 267 Smith Street, Brooklyn.
I bought Freudenhaus eye glasses 04/2007. The arms on the frame were loose. I went into the store and the older man whom I think is the owner with Amy Poran said first of all that I didn't buy the glasses from his store, which I did and have the receipt to prove it $714.00 later. He was extremely rude. I then went back today on 05/10/09 and he said that the glasses were 6 years old, which made me think he sold me old frames... I told him that they were loose and needed to be tighten he told me he could fix them he isn't a repair person. I then informed him that I purchased the glasses from this store which he didn't believe and proceeded to look them up on the internet which wasn't working properly. As I waited he informed me about the warranty on the frame... which is one year yet all I wanted was to tighten the arm of the glasses.
I WOULD NEVER GO BACK... I BELIEVE IN SUPPORTING MY NEIGHBORHOOD BUSINESS... THIS ONE IS HORRIBLE... I WOULD RATHER BRING MY BUSINESS TO ANY OTHER STORE MAYBE THE EYEGLASS STORE UP THE BLOCK BETWEEN UNION AND PRESIDENT.
My 84 year old mother frames broke and I bought her eye glasses from David's Optical on Montague Street. THEY WERE POLITE, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL...

First of all, I had resigned myself to wait till I went back to my home state to buy glasses, as a result of frustration. Then while exploring Bedford Avenue, I came across Oculus 20 20. The first difference that struck me was there was no glass cabinet full of frames. I hate going to places like that, because you always have to ask the salesperson to hand you each frame. The salespeople always act like they're expecting someone much more important than you. At Oculus, they open a drawer and let you take your time. The salespeople/opticians are extremely helpful and patient. I had two people helping me, and both Nick and Angelica were extremely courteous, informative and helpful. (Nick even let me bring my bicycle inside! HUGE POINTS FOR THAT!!!) I found an awesome frame, and Angelica tracked the prescription for me from the optometrist. (I'll use Dr. Poran next time.) In all, it was a great experience, and I feel I have the glasses to get me through the rest of the decade in style..(as if I know anything about that.)

Pros: Nice selection. Excellent staff. Excellent service.

Cons: I'd say pricey, but it seems no matter how huge the sale, the glasses are going to cost me more than $400...so no cons.

I fell in love with this eyewear boutique, so I took two *expensive* frames, one on a private basis, the other with my insurance plan, VSP. After I left, the salesperson called to say that I was not eligible for a frame with the insurance. (Well, I do not blame them, it is my responsibility to know my benefits.) It turned out to be that I was not eligible for frames at the time, and they told me that if I wanted the second pair I had to pay more. I politely refused and asked for a refund.

They recalled the frame back from the insurance company lab and fully refunded me. Thank you very much, Oculus 20/20. Also, the customer service was great. The frame selection in unmatched in Carroll Gardens. They sell Robert Marc, which is available through VSP insurance. I could not find another optical that offered that. Also I would like to mention that this boutique located at 267 Smith St. is loaded with beautiful handcrafted frames.

I brought my old pair of glasses to the Bedford location about a week and a half ago to replace the lenses on them. A few days later I received a phone call saying that the delivery person had an accident and that two pairs of glasses were lost, mine included. Oculus offered me to choose any frame from either of their two stores. I didn't find anything I wanted. I brought the receipt of the glasses that were lost to the owner, Amir Poran, and he refunded me every penny, and gave me a box of chocolates, as a token. Thank you for your honestly, for refunding my money, and for your speedy service. I will definitely come again to this store. I preferred not to choose a frame now because I was told by one of the salespeople that the store will be receiving a huge new shipment of frames at the end of April, after the trade show.

I have recently been to Oculus 20/20 and I am absolutly in loveee with my new glasses! After a bad experience at another optical store i was so relieved to have found Oculus! I was given fantastic service by everyone who works at that store.. including the owner who personally took his time to select the perfect frame for me. If you are absolutly clueless as to what frames are right for you (like me!), I would definitly recomend you go there. Everyone who works there gets involved in the sale and makes the decision process so much easier. Dr. Poran gave an excellent exam and the prescription was perfect. After a bad RX at the other place i was happy to be able to see clearly. I'm thrilled to have found a store and doctor that I can continue doing business with for years to come!

I went to this store last week and bought two frames. There was great service and I spent less than $150, including the exam! The doctor was great, very informative. I felt that I got alot for much less money. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Pros: great prices, great doctor

Cons: there aren't more stores like this

This store used to be so high end that I could not afford it, now they are having a liquidation sale where one frame used to sell for three or four hundred dollars, I can now get for 2 for one hundred and sixty dollars. The owner said that his plan is to keep this liquidation going. You can get amazing bargains there like frame and lenses for $50. My recommendation is to call them before you go and see when new shipments come in because the frames go fast. I went one Friday and saw about 20 sunglasses that I wanted to choose from, and when I went back on Sunday, they were gone! Sometimes you need to be patient in terms of service as it can get very busy there. I was told that it might take a week to get my frame back and it took a little longer, but I was just happy to get the bargain. Check it out!

Pros: great selection, can't find a better deal anywhere

Cons: they charge extra for cases

When my doctor told me that I had to wear eyeglasses, I had been extremely disappointed. All this just added to my mid life crisis. But anyways, what can you do....? My girlfriend had recommended Oculus 20/20 to me and had assured me that I could find frames that would suit me. Still I had entered the store with some heart felt dread. Much to my advantage, the two girls that work there had been eager to assist me. They showed me through a variety of styles , some of which weren't half bad! At the end we choose a bold frame that took away attention from my receding hairline. The glasses were done in a timely manner. The idea of getting glasses was first a rain on my parade, but hey at least I can see the road great when I ride on my new motorcycle!

Pros: Wide variety, Great quality, Smiling Faces!

Cons: I can only get a 1 new pair a year

This is definately one of the classiest places i have been to as far as eyewear goes. Dr. Poran introduced herself and braught me to the exam room which was filled with all kinds of state of the art equipment . Having Glucoma running in my family , it was important for me to trust a doctor to treat my eyes...This doctor really knows her stuff! she was a very pleasant doctor who spent atleast 45 minutes to an hour with me and answered every question i had better than i imagined. After the exam the manager of the store guided me in my search for new glasses, Let me tell you these people really know their stuff in picking out the right frame for a client. Oculus takes VSP insurance which i used for my exam and a new pair of glasses which was a huge releif. After everything was said and done, i ended up paying just over 50% out of pocket for very high end glasses which came from a top knotch selection, a full thorough exam, and progressive lenses with a scratch resistant anti glare coating. Their frames are very extravigant and are good for the "individual" shopper with taste. I compared their designers to the same ones in manhattan and the prices were atleast $100 less in the Oculus stores, give and take. My frame was ready super quick.

Overall i was very pleased with the service i received from A to Z. Everything was done as promised in an intelligent, hospitable and friendly manner. I just want to use city search to thank the people at Oculus 20/20 for all their help and time.

Pros: they treat you like royalty for the most part

Cons: You end up wanting to buy more than one frame from them

You saved my eyesight! A few months ago, I woke up in the morning and saw flashes of light. I didn't know what to do, but I found Dr. Amy Poran's name in my insurance manual. I called Oculus 20/20 on Smith St. and described my symptoms to the person who answered the phone. He consulted with the Dr., who said I should come in ASAP. Dr. Poran took me in right away, and after dilating my eyes, she told me that she found a defect in my retina, and referred me right away to a colleague who does surgery. That same day I underwent a laser procedure to save my retina. The ophthalmologist said that if I had not taken care of this problem right away, I would have lost sight in one eye! He said I was lucky that I went to such a skilled doctor who was thorough enough to find this problem. Words can't say how much I am thankful to Dr. Poran. I also want to mention that she used a really cool camera to show me exactly what and where the problem was on my retina. It made everything easier to understand. I highly recommend an eye exam by Dr. Poran.

Dr. Amy Poran was super. She was the first optometrist that I trusted and who really seemed to care if my prescription was going to improve my well being. I've suffered from migraines for years and work in front of a computer so eye strain had deteriorated my sight substantially by the time I made it to Oculus... When the prescription felt too strong for my blurry eyes to adjust to they changed the lenses and gave me a weaker prescription.The glasses I bought were expensive but gorgeous. Overall a very pleasant experience.
