    Excellent

    A great experience, from beginning to end. The optometrist you have on staff is wonderful, the styles of glasses were beautiful and varied, and the staff was professional, elegant, and helpful. When I came back in, I received prompt service and a gorgeous new pair of Beausoleil's that I love! Would highly recommend!

    Very good staff and service.

    The store staff was quick and efficient during my check-in process. As always, the doctor was friendly and thorough. She was very clear on her instructions and considerate while touching near my eyes (so if you're squeamish, this will be not be an issue for you!)

  • 5

    Very pleasant!

    While I waited, I was offered sparkling water or espresso and my eye appointment was handled professionally and quickly. The doctor was so thorough and gentle, even when I was extremely squirmish!

    Mom's appointment

    My Mom is 93 and hadn't had her eyes checked in a few years. I took her to see Dr. Rabkin. She was great. She was very patient and I think she ran overtime, but made sure that my mother had the attention that she needed. She was very thorough, doing all the testing that was needed. The rest of the people were also very friendly and attentive. And they even gave my mother a discount.

    My recent visit

    I had a painful, swollen red eye the other day and called the office. Not only did I get an appointment within a couple of hours. Dr. Zappala also followed up via e-mail later the day. This is first-class service!!!

    Amazing

    Dr. Galina Rabkin is the best. She really takes the time to listen to you and wants to work with you. You never feel rushed and she takes your concerns very seriously. She is also the best at helping you pick out frames that are flattering and unique, while staying within a budget. All of the staff are very friendly and willing to help. Best eye care experiences I have ever had!!

    eye exam

    Very thorough and professional. Friendly atmosphere with service being front and center.This is my second time to get my eyes checked in four years with no need to change my lenses. Gentle suggestion about getting new lenses because the materials have been improved but no push to sell product. I truly uplifted environment.

    Vizio Optics Boston

    Dr. Zappala was very patient and answered all my questions and concerns. She also explained every procedure she was performing, which made me very comfortable. Definitely an eye doctor i will return to for future consults. Erin also provided me with great service in picking out a pair of eyeglass. She was very patient in the selection process, and was extremely helpful!

  • 5

    Simply the BEST

    I have stalled many years for an updated eye exam. Dr. Rabkin was so patient and kind with me, I felt as if I were her only patient. Afterward, Alex was equally patient - and amazingly quick - in helping me narrow down and chose a frame to go with my new prescription. My son and daughter-in-law have sworn by Vizio Optic and their entire staff for years, and I am so glad to be part of their family! I cannot wait to pick up my new glasses!

    Eye doctor

    Very pleasant office and friendly staff. I would definitely go again. The doctor was extremely accommodating, patient and an expert at her job. She answered all of my questions and I left the office feeling great. The front desk staff were friendly and made sure that I was well taken care of.

  • 5

    Dr. Zappala

    I had the most wonderful experience here. Dr. Zappala really listened to what I wanted and was patient and knowledgeable. She also gave me what I asked for (soft lenses) which my previous eye doctor would not do. It was a revelation to me to find an eye doctor who could be as forward-thinking as I wanted to be about my vision and comfort. I am very grateful for the care.

  • 5

    Outstanding Service (and Gorgeous Frames)

    Everyone here is professional and attentive. Thorough eye exams, using state of the art equipment. They take the time to explain everything carefully. The shop staff are extremely helpful with selecting frames that flatter, and pointed me to several styles and colors that I might never have picked on my own. Dr. Rabkin has always been good, and Dr. Zappala is a good addition to the team. I go out of my way to come here now -- wouldn't think of going anywhere else anymore.

  • 5

    Always Top Quality Service

    I have been a customer here for over three years and have always been impressed how thorough the eye exams are here. Dr. Rabkin is very knowledgeable in her field and takes all the time necessary to insure customers are completely satisfied.

    Best Eye Care Ever!

    Dr. Rabkin is professional, thorough,relaxed, enthusiastic and dedicated. She has, on more than one occasion, helped me to understand problems with my vision and has taken the time needed to communicate effectively. Erin, who has been with Dr. Rabkin for a long time is highly skilled, unpretentious, and very helpful in selecting and fitting frames. I cannot recommend Eye Care Boston too highly; as this is the best Eye Care venue I have ever experienced.

    excellent experience

    Dr. Rabkin is extremely knowledgeable. She offers great suggestions and is willing to try unusual solutions for both mundane and abnormal issues. She is up-to-date on the latest eye glass materials and executes beautifully on fulfilling prescriptions - even for eyes that are off-center. Her eye-glass frame selection is second to none!

    Incredible doctor, efficient service

    For the first time in many years I have found my eye doctor, Dr. Mary-Ann Zappala. I have come to her office expecting just basic optometric measurements taken, left with full understanding of the status of my eye care, and what should I do with it for the rest of my life. Strongly recommend, will refer all my family and friends to her - thank you !

  • 5

    Engaged and efficient service

    We came for three appointments--myself and my two teens. They ran exactly on time so my kids could miss as little of school as possible (they were on free blocks), accommodated my need to squeeze in conference calls while my children were being examined, frame sales were accommodating and low-pressure. Highly recommend!

    EyeCareBoston/Vizio

    This is not my first visit to Vizio; I had not met Dr. Zappala before, but she is just as thorough, informative, friendly and courteous as Dr. Rabkin has been. The rest of the staff are also friendly and helpful. Great place.

    review of Vizio

    Excellent refraction experience with Dr. Zappala. She was attentive and thoughtful throughout and answered all of my questions

  • 5

    Definitely a great experience!

    I recently went into VisioOptic for 2 appts- one for treatment of an eye infection and the other for routine eye exam. Dr. Zappala was very thorough, knowledgable, and personable. I will definitely be seeing her in the future for my eye care needs. Also the floor staff (especially Erin) were absolutely wonderful. Erin was able to find me the perfect set of glasses (honestly I've never had glasses look this good) in about 5 minutes. They are a great team!

    Nice Experience

    Eye exam

    For over 55 yrs I have been wearing glasses. I can truthfully state my exam was the most comprehensive eye exam I have ever experienced. Resulting from this exam I have been referred to a retina specialist and have been diagnosed with beginning stages of cataracts. Dr Zappala thank you

    Best Eye Care In Boston

    I was referred by my boss Anne who absolutely loves Dr. Galina. She is very professional at all times and works with you in selecting the best possible care available. Believe me when you walk out that door, your spirits are on high and you are satisfied with the services received. I would recommend anyone to try this new experience.

    Best in Boston

    Dr. Rabkin is absolutely the best. Few years ago, I took my prescription in and went away amazed at how much time she spent with me to make sure things were just right for my situation. This time around I had the complete eye exam and my expectations were met and surpassed. She really handles difficult prescription situations with expertise and above all, patience. I agree with the other reviewers - never go anywhere else.

    Worth a 6 hour round trip drive

    This was one of the most thorough, and pleasant, eye examinations I have ever had. From the moment I was greeted at the door, to the long and detailed examination of my vision and eyes, I knew I was being cared for in a totally professional manner by an expert.

    Galina and her team are simply best in class and just the kindest and most attentive people you will ever have the good fortune to encounter.

I've had both my eyeglasses and sunglasses made here for years and simply would not trust anyone else.

    Dr. Rabkin and her staff deserve their numerous Best of Boston awards. I've been her patient for over 10 years.

Aside from her clinical expertise, her staff will show the most stylish frames this side of New York, Montreal, Paris, London or Milan.
