Lehandré is a wonderful optometrist who is extremely well educated and amazing at what she does. She explained everything thoroughly, and was kind and professional throughout. The professionalism and friendliness runs through to reception as well. Good quality, and a wide variety of frames and lenses available to choose from. I can highly recommend the Family Optometrist.
Lehandre is very professional and explains everything very clearly. She also had a look at my daughter age 3 eyes, and the experience was so great that my little one did not want to leave. Would highly recommend her to anyone...
Last words from our "family"...
The optometrist, Lehandrè, pays so much attention to the causes of the eye sight problems. She sends an email to explain the conditions of your eye site and why she is recommending certain lenses. I stay very far from Brooklyn, but I still use her services gladly. She helped my daughter in correcting her prescription which caused her headaches from another optometrist. My daughter has not experienced those headaches ever since her new prescription. 🙏🏽
The Family Optometrist is an amazing practice where the whole experience is efficient and memorable from start to finish. From the friendly reception welcome, to the finer details and client experience. Lehandré is amazing at what she does and is very thorough and caring while performing the eye test. I can highly recommend The Family Optometrist.
The Family Optometrist took the word "family" and incorporated it into their daily practice. Lehandré and Shane are not only some of the kindest and friendliest people I have met, but they have such a passion for what they do and it shines through everytime I visit them. This type of professionalism that allows for personalisation is what I think is the core of fantastic customer service. Lehandré is compassionate and caring and dealt with all my silly questions and fears in the best way, even when telling me I needed glasses when I was convinced I had perfect vision. Shane helped me choose the nicest frame to compliment my face shape and personality and it helped me a lot with my self confidence and reluctance to start wearing specs. Thank you x
