poor service at optical shop. Good optometrist – Tried to charge extra for ordered glasses after paid in full.
Zeiss Lenses ARE superior! – Nick Bello explained to me why Zeiss makes a superior progressive lens, but I knew my lenses were an improvement already. I could see so much better! If you have a high power prescription like mine and have been disappointed with your progressive lenses, try a pair made by Zeiss. The improvement in peripheral vision is significant and the "sweet spot" feels much larger. Yes, they are expensive, but Zeiss is worth it. After all, it's your vision, right?
22yrs of great service – Have been going to Bello's since I was 2yrs old. They have always been good to me and my family. They know my name and always acknowledge me when I come in. I have Davis and never had a problem with them. Hedi always reminds me when it's time to get new glasses or to have an eye appointment. The entire staff is great and the atmosphere is comfortable. I will continue to go here as long as I need to and tell everyone I know to as well.
Bello Opticians – I have been going to Bello's for six years now and have never had a problem. Everyone in there is always very friendly. Nick the owner has been helping me with my last pair of glasses, there was nothing wrong with them but I wasn't completely happy with them and he went out of his way to make sure I was happy even if it meant getting an entirely different pair of glasses. As long as I live in worcester I will continue to go to Bello opticians. If you are new to the area or just looking for a new place to purchase contacts and lenses you should definitely try bello's. Also the optician Dr. G is great and very personable.
personal service second to none – Nick and his staff have taken care of me for the past 15 years, i have not a single complaint.
The best -I've never seen so clearly – The optical expertise here is unsurpassed. I've been wearing glasses since first grade - so for the last 37 years. When I first got glasses through Bello Opticians nearly 14 years ago, I was amazed at how much better my vision was than ever before. They have continued to provide a high level of service and professionalism to members of my family since then (six of us need serious vision correction.) Thank you ,Nick and company, for all the wonderful years of excellent service and extraordinarily kind attention.
Shady – Overpriced. Dr.G is great but the staff is shady. If you have Davis vision make sure they actually use your benfits.. they made me pay and didn't even submit the claim. I ended up paying the full price for everything. Their contact lenses are also very pricy. Don't go hear if you have Davis vision. pick some other place.
Negligent – My recent experience with Nick Bello was very disappointing. A reviewer mentioned his proficiency in "fitting" glasses: apparently that is what his license or degree is in, because he seems not to know a thing about lenses. Not only were the frames I chose for progressive bifocal lenses not large enough to accommodate them (THEY were supposed to know this, not the customer), the peripheral 'vision' was blurry and of course shouldn't have been. I've been in touch with the appropriate authorities in an attempt to get a refund.
poor service – I went there a few months ago- i really liked the optometrist Dr. G- he was great and knowledgable. I can't say the same about the staff or the owner. They were rude and the place had a wierd smell like moldy
Meticulous Craftsmanship, Perfectly Comfortable Fit – My wife has been going to Nick for over 20 years and when we got married, she turned me on to the BEST optician I've ever dealt with. His forte is fit, you wear your glasses all the time, they must be comfortable and effective; no one is better at this than Nick. We walk in any time and he happily cleans and adjusts our glasses, his service is unparalleled. He's also got a great eye for style, it's come to the point were we just say, "what should we get?" and he helps select frames that look good on our faces and are within our budget. He's flexible. I brought in a pair of sunglasses that I bought in Italy and he made lenses for them with my new prescription. My wife wears one contact lens, he made a pair of glasses with only one correcting lens that she can wear for driving.
Bello Opticians is one of the best service companies we deal with. We like our plumber, we like our realtor, we like our mechanic, but we love Nick.
