  • "As someone who has had glasses/contacts all their life, I can say Dr. Li is the best optometrist I've had. He takes time to explain test results, the appointment was efficient but not rushed, and he personally responds to emails promptly."

  • "Love this place. Staff is nice, professional, and thoughtful, from the front desk back to the doctors. Also, unlike 99% of eye docs, these guys don't hold your prescription (or details of it) ransom so you can order your glasses and contacts from anyone (from them, online, anything. Also, they have the most extensive eye exams I've seen."

  • "Super efficient - have all eye equipment lined up in a row so just need to scoot over to finish all the tests with the technician. The front desk understands insurance policies and coordination very well. In and out in 20 minutes. Free wifi."

  • "Love this place. Needed a last minute replacement contact lens when I was on vacation in NY. My friend took me to her optometrist. Dr. James Li was hands down one of the most attentive and accommodating professionals I have ever met. Totally helped me out. You da man James! I wish there was a clone of him and Manhattan Vision Associates out here on the West Coast!"

  • "Really feel confident in the care at Manhattan Vision Associates. Dr. Lori Rothman is wonderful. So thorough and excellent at explaining things. When a test revealed the potential for me to develop glaucoma she re-ran the test to confirm the results (have to love her accuracy!) and then took the time to explain my situation in detail. All in all I highly recommend Dr. Rothman and Manhattan Vision Associates."
