Nothing but the best – if you're looking for a place to get glasses with service, maximeyes optical is the wayy to go. i received incredible service from calvin jim and luiz. they were awesome.
jim picked out an awesome pair of glasses for me that he thought that could fit my facial features.
luiz is the one helping me make my glasses. i'm SURE they'll come out incredible.
thanks everyone at maxim eyes for your courteous respect and treatment!
Best Optical Experience – My family have been to numerious optical stores but this store is by far the best. I was personally greeted by both the optician Calvin and Dr. Elena Rosen. One is immediately led to feel that they are being serviced by people who sincerely care. The exam was complete and efficient. Afterwards you are hand-held through the selection process. My search was quickly narrowed down to two pairs of glasses. In short I was confident about my decision and actually enjoyed my time with Calvin and Elena. It truly was like shopping with friends. The store is convenient and the decor sublime. I am sorry I did not come here sooner. The selection was tremendous, the quality top notch and the prices no more expensive than going to a mass chain where the service does not compare. This is like shopping at a boutique instead of a mass retailer but at the same prices.
great eyeglass store – i made an appointment to have my eyes examined with Dr. Rosen at Maximeyes Optical. When i first walked into the store, i was greeted by Calvin the optician with a warm smile. I've always been used to going to a Lenscrafters or a Cohen's type of store, but Maximeyes was such a pleasant change. I felt very comfortable just browsing around the store until my exam. The atmosphere and decor of the store is very warm and friendly, not like a doctors office or a typical generic looking eyeglass store.
Dr. Rosen gave me a very thorough exam and it was pretty quick as well. I could definitely tell that she knew what she was doing and that really put me at ease. I have a pretty high prescription and have been wearing glasses since the 3rd grade, so I've had my fair share of exams. This one ranks up as one of the best I've experienced.
After checking my eyes for contacts and glasses (killing two birds with one stone), we proceeded to look for some frames. I've never been good at picking out glasses, but with the help of Calvin and Dr. Rosen, I actually found a good 5-6 frames that I really liked. Too bad i haven't won the lotto yet, otherwise, i would have taken them all. After narrowing some down, I finally chose a Bevel frame. It's probably the coolest frames I've ever owned. It's super lightweight and has a nice semi funky style to it. Calvin and Dr. Rosen were great at not pressuring me into making a rash decision, but offering me some advice when I needed it. They even suggested that i take my time. I thought it was so great that i didn't feel any pressure during the whole time.
Now comes the tough part, my lenses. I'm always scared of the coke bottle look since my prescription is so high. I spoke to Calvin about my concerns and he totally put me at ease about my high prescription. He assured me that i have nothing to worry about and went over all the differ net lens types and thinning lenses there were. He even told me that he's the one that will be making my glasses and that if i have any concerns about anything, to speak directly to him about it. I found that to be such a bonus that he will be personally making my glasses for me and that he knows the face and the name the glasses will be going on. Needless to say, my glasses came out perfect. He did some adjustments on the glasses so that it would fit more custom for my face.
I've already gotten a bunch of compliments on my glasses from my coworkers and my friends. I can't stop telling people about Maximeyes Optical. I'm never going anywhere else for my eyes
Most Excellent Eyewear Shop in NYC! – I love this eyeglass store!! I went here on the recommendation of a friend with fabulous chic glasses. As soon as I entered this store, it had a really great vibe, more like a Chelsea gallery than a vision shop, complete with art on the walls. The staff was enthusiastic about their products and so helpful. With their guidance, I was able to narrow my decision down to three (THREE!!) frames. For my tiny face, I usually dread looking for glasses, because everything looks too big. I chose this great frame by Salt, a brand I have not seen anywhere else. They had all styles, from the current heavy plastic retro trend to streamlined stainless steels and titaniums and lots of color. I tried them all! I had an eye exam which was so easy and comfortable and thorough. I am going back to pick out my new sunglasses here soon. Dont even bother going anywhere else! Five stars plus!
The Best Eye Glass Store in NYC – There is nothing about this store I would change. The service is impeccable from both the super friendly and knowledgeable doctor Elena and the optician Calvin, the selection is incredibly tasteful and vast, (yet somehow it takes no time to make the right choice). All other stores should take note and do the same in every way. You will get the perfect eye exam that misses nothing, followed by an overwhelming increase in complements on your new glasses. Don't bother with other stores - just come here and enjoy the absolutely delightful transaction and your improved eyes. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
I should have gone back to them!!! – I went to MaximEyes on the recommendation of a co-worker who had some really jazzy frames. She really liked the service and the selection there and told me to check them out about a year ago. I had been buying glasses at my opthamologist's office - and although I really like my doctor, I was not that thrilled about the way her office handles the retail part of purchasing the actual glasses. I got my prescription and went to MaximEyes. I found the perfect frames in like 15 - 20 minutes - which is HUGE for me! Then they filled my prescription lenses. I have never been as happy with a pair of glasses before. I have progressive lenses as well and have issues with peripheral vision. They addressed all that and it was just a very good experience. This year, I went to my opthamologist for an exam and had a SLIGHT change in vision. Since I didn't qualify for new frames this year, I figured since I was there, I'd have the doc's office handle the change of lenses. Wouldn't you know that there would be a problem! Town Optical claims that VSP broke my frames (some really nice Katana frames that I got from MaximEyes) and now they want me to come in and try to find something "comparable". I am too annoyed for words right now but I blame my own hastiness if anything. I should have just taken the new prescription to MaximEyes in the first place! I am hoping to get my lenses from Town Optical and run down to MaximEyes to humbly ask what they can do to help remedy this. Meanwhile, I have been two weeks wearing two year old glasses. What a mess! My lesson: stick with what works - even if it's a little less convenient!!!
Maximeyes Optical is the greatest – So since summer is just around the corner, i went to Maximeyes Optical again to see if i can find some cool shades. I'm kind of tired of the same old things I see everywhere like the Prada's, Oakley's, and those sorts. I wanted something a little more cutting edge. I know that Maximeyes Optical has some nice styles and I was right. With Calvin and Dr. Rosen's help and opinion, I got a pair of IC Berlin sunglasses. These are so light weight and cool. They fit my unusual head and are so comfortable. Again, Calvin and Dr. Rosen were great at picking out exactly what I was looking for. They made it so easy again. I'm normally pretty indecisive and have no idea what looks good on myself. I totally trust their opinions since they did such a great job picking out my glasses for me. This was another great experience. I'm sending everyone I know here. Thanks Dr. Rosen and Calvin
Great eyeglass store!!! – I have been a loyal customer of maximeyes for quite a long time. Dr. Rosen makes you feel very comfortable and does a very thorough eye exam. After the eye exam, both Dr. Rosen and Calvin help you pick out the best glasses. They take into account your taste, as well as which glasses fit your face. They have a great selection and very reasonable prices. I always come out of this store completely satisfied. I have received compliments on every pair that I have ever bought here. I also purchase my contacts from them (which I don't wear often due to how much I love my glasses). I recommend this place to everyone I know!!
Amazing Service -- Professional and Welcoming! – I am very happy with my entire experience. Both Dr. Rosen and Calvin (The Optician) are highly professional. In addition to their professional skills they have a great knack for helping find great frames. And, I've had to go back a couple of times for questions, or frame adjustments and was NEVER made to feel like I was a bother. I'm very happy with Maxim Eyes and would highly recommend them.
Great selection, great customer service – I am happier with my glasses than I have ever been in my almost 30 years of wearing glasses. I have always worn contacts more often that glasses, but with the newest pair I prefer to wear my glasses. Dr. Rosen and Calvin were very patient with me as I picked out the perfect pair of frames. The decision was a difficult one as they have such a great selection to choose from. They were great at helping me pick glasses that suited my face and they were honest if something did not look good. I would recommend Maximeyes to anyone looking for new glasses. The store is conveniently located, one block away from the 1 train. I cant wait until I am ready to get a new pair.
