The "Mac" and "Nordstrom" of the Eyecare industry! – She is an excellent Doctor! No doubt. I've never had such care in an eye exam before. She really cares and takes the time to explain everything. I completely trust her expertise.
Her office is the best of the best quality with genuine care. Metro Eye has the most high tech office I've ever seen. I'm a very picky person and like the best of the best (which is why I'm a Mac, Shop at Nordstrom, Organic food, will pay $200 for a haircut) etc.. and Metro Eye and Dr. Amy Jankowski is the "Mac" of the eye care industry.
Thank you so much for your kind words! We enjoyed meeting you and look forward to your next visit!
Top notch but not inexpensive – We've been to Metro Eye several times now, and remain VERY impressed with the operation. Over the years we've been to a number of others, and Dr. Jankowski & Company are at the top of our list.
It's possible to get someone on a "bad day" and with a service as personal as eye care that will be a huge negative. It may be THE business, along with barbering and styling of hair, where the rapport with the provider is hugely important. Personally, that issue has not happened to us --- at Metro Eye but when I read negative comments about a place sprinkled in with glowing ones, I figure that might be the issue.
The only reason I am giving 5 stars instead of 4 is pricing. I am always blown away by the price of eye wear, no matter where I have gone. So I HAVE tried the "low end" places, and have given up on them (for the time being at least) because it just may be (surprise surprise, huh?) that you do get what you pay for. At Metro Eye, there are no bargains as far as I can tell --- but the service and selection are outstanding. So THAT choice is yours, obviously.
If I were to give advice, it might be: if concerned about cost, tell the staff you are not wanting to pay hundreds more for something that's not really clearly worth the difference in price. Not sure how much difference it would make to do that, but since this is such a "personal" kind of business, might be good establish and communicate your thoughts right off the top.
Does she really know what shes's doing? – I decided to change to Metro Eye, as I had been driving an hour away to see my old eye care provider. First, I purchased glasses that were over 600 dollars....but I haven't been able to wear them. I have never had issues with my glasses or contacts in the past. The perscription in my glasses is so wrong...that it's impossble to wear them. I've already been in once to get them fixed...and while I was there they apologized, but blamed it on me for not telling Dr. Jankowski when it was "clear" enough. Really? I've been almost blind for 15 years....and I've never had this problem before and I'm pretty sure I know the drill when getting my eyes checked. The contacts that she suggested for me too...are wrong. Well one of them is okay, the other is not the righ fit for my eye...as it is constantly twisting...So I've had one heck of a year thanks to Metro Eye, I will not be going back. I'll be going back to my old eye care provider who knows what he's doing..or possibly a new one.
Best Eye Doc in the Ward – I visited Metro Eye for the first time during their trunk show in the beginning of May. We had a great time, they had food donated from local restruraunts, great music, three designer vendors in and we had a blast!
I bought great frames, the Dr. was easy to work with and am going back to sunglasses as soon as I can!
Metro Eye is Great! – I have astigmatism to the point where contacts would stick to my eyes and dry them out immensely. Before I knew it, I had two corneal ulcers in my right eye. I went elsewhere at first to get the issue resolved (wont mention where) initially. I was prescribed drops and didnt wear my contacts for months. Then, this other place gave me more curved lenses... well that made it worse my eyes were constantly dry then one would water constantly for an entire day. They were also more red and the corneal ulcers had returned. Frustrated, I called metro eye, they got me in the next day... looked at my eyes and told me that the other place had gotten it backwards... really I needed nearly flat contacts! They tried three kinds of contacts with me. They were very thorough and were great with insurance and follow-ups. My eyes have been great for nearly 6 months now! Great place.
All about selling expensive glasses – The exam part did not go over well. I was shuffled into three different rooms. Technician had trouble with one of the machines. Prescription came out wrong.
When it came time to pay the bill my eyes were dialated and they did not explain the charges. I felt I was swindled into buying $600.00 pair of glasses. The girl behind the counted didn't understand what the big deal was. My advice, check the bill and ask a lot of questions. They tried to tack on a lot of extra stuff (tinting, glare-proofing, etc...) I didn't want. I will not return.
great service and great frames! – We basically travel 8 mos a yr. Recently while on an extended snow bird trip to Texas for the winter I lost my glasses. I went to a Texas eye Dr. to get glasses, since my prescription had expired. The new Dr found a potetial major eye problem, this problem just appered after I was diagonsed with diabetes in the last 6 mos. Dr. Amy called me directly to tell me what her input was on the exams the Dr here wanted to run. What Dr would call you directly!! I can't say enough about Dr. Amy, she is profesional, caring and friendly. The frame shop has the best selection around. If you don't want to spend a lot just let them know and they will drect you to less expensive frames.
Unique, impeccable service, extremely friendly! – Dr. Amy Jankowski and the entire team are incredibly professional, friendly, and efficient. The frames are so unique. I am constantly receiving compliments on them. This is the place to go in Milwaukee for extraordinary frames and impeccable service!
Fabulous customer service – I recently purchased three pair of glasses from Metro Eye. The customer service is outstanding. I didn't feel as if price had anything to do with the frames they were selecting for me, but rather they were helping me make the selection based on my tastes and the best fit for my face. The staff is familiar with all of the products that they carry and answered my questions completely. I will be going back to Metro Eye for all of my eyewear needs!
An EYE-opening experience – Metro Eye isn't your ordinary, run-of-the-mill eye glass store, it is an experience. A perfect fit for the rest of the boutique style, unique experience stores in the Third Ward. Dr. Amy takes a great deal of pride in her services and in the retail operations of her store. LuAnne and the rest of the staff truly help customers pick out frames that fit your face and your personality. I've been going to Metro Eye since they opened and have sent friends and family there. Don't take your eye sight for granted, go to Dr. Amy!
