Eye to Eye carries a selection of frames which you simply can't find elsewhere. You can tell the owner has a passion for his business. While they have been around for twenty years or so (I forget exactly how long it was that they said), they keep it fresh... and are still very current on all the latest trends.
Alex proved helpful and knowledgeable in his craft. I have never been happier with a pair of glasses.
I have been going to Eye to Eye for over 10 years and have recommended it to several friends all of whom have been very happy going there. The store has an impressive inventory of frames. Alex is careful and thorough in filling your prescription and always up-to-date on the latest technological advances. In addition, he has a great sense of style and an ability to recommend frames which are the most complimentary to you and the best for meeting your vision requirements. He takes the time to answer all questions and is genuinely interested in customer satisfaction. There is always lots of convenient parking and the store is handicapped accessible.
Want to purchase glasses at a place where you can totally trust the opinion of the person serving you? Alex at Eye to Eye is the BEST! Glasses are not something play around with especially if you have very weak vision like myself. Alex will tell you honestly what looks good on you and what does not. I totally recommend this place to anyone who wants to invest in glasses and get a good product. Would you go to a discount place to replace your arm? Why do it for glasses? Go to Eye to Eye!
Amazing selection of frames,very friendly staff,great service, i will be back for my next pair of glasses
The best Optical shop in town! – The best place for European eye wear. Beside your Gucci, Versace, Dolce and Gabbana, they carry stuff from all over the world. Designers that popular abroad like IcBerlin, Lindberg, X-ice, etc... I've never seen so many frames anywhere. The guy there, Alex, actually helps me pick out my glasses. All my friends, my co-workers got there for some cool glasses. They do have some less expensive frames, but I like the better stuff. If you want the cheap 2 pair for $99, this place may not be for you. So if you want to be a trend setter go to Eye To Eye as they are the best at what they do. I will not go anywhere else.
Expensive but Very Cool and Unique Eyeglasses – If you don't want the boring eye glasses available at the chains and at the small opiticians, if you don't want to travel to Manhattan to buy eyeglasses, and if you are willing to spend 3 times what a boring pair costs, then come to Eye to Eye. No refunds -- so be sure before you commit. The frames there are worlds beyond what can be found everywhere else. I bought four pairs (sunglasses, reading glasses, regular glasses), and the owner gave me a deal (still way more expensive than any other optician, but worth it to me because I don't like what is "in style" at this time). Next time, maybe what I like will be back in style and I won't spend so much per pair -- but if not, I'm coming back to Eye to Eye.
CROOKS AND THIEVES CHERNOFFS – I absolutely agree with Somari's review where he/she writes about VERY QUESTIONABLE BUSINESS PRACTICES of the owners and his/her terrible experience with the eye to eye store. I will paste that other review below after mine. Please read it too.
Unfortunately, there is no zero star for rating that I would choose either.
Now, I have not bought glasses from this place, however, I had an experience with the owner Boris Chernoff, his wife and their daughter.
These people had a Rehab business (which failed), where I used to be employed.
After I left, I discovered that a couple of checks written to me for my services, by accident were not cashed. I contacted Chernoff and his wife and asked to renew my checks so I could cash them.
You see, The law states that in case of uncashed checks, the company is required to 1) Inform the person about the uncashed check within a certain amount of time, 2) Send the uncashed check to the government as an unclaimed property so that the check could be recovered later by the person who it belongs to, as this check is a private property of that person whom it was written to.
Chernoffs DID NONE OF THOSE THINGS!! THEY KEPT MY MONEY ( around $1,900) and refused to answer my phone calls, hoping I will go away. They STOLE MY MONEY I WORKED HARD FOR.
Then they claimed to the Government on their tax return my payroll check as their business expense, when in reality there was no expense made as my payroll check was never paid out to me! This is a TAX FRAUD!!!
These people seem to be willing to go to any extent to make a buck. They have NO INTEGRITY
Please don't trust their sweet talking, they will not do the right thing when it is called for, as I"ve learned.
As for the glasses/frames business eye to eye: people who know Chernoffs (come from the same country) say that Chernoffs buy the glasses they sell you in China and not anywhere else, as they claim. Look like CROOKS to me!
Now, below I will paste a review written by the former customer Somari on another website.PLEASE READ:
STAY AWAY FROM EYE TO EYE LIKE THE BUBONIC PLAQUE
Their business practices are very questionable. Recently, I ordered a pair of prescription glasses. I paid for the purchase in cash ($400 plus). I was told I did not need a receipt but fortunately, I did not leave the store until they provided one for me. When I went to pick up my prescription glasses the lenses were in a different frame than the frame that I had ordered. I insisted that Eye to Eye made an error and they disagreed. I refused to take delivery of the glasses and requested the frames that I had ordered. Eye to Eye told me that since it was buyerâ??s remorse and because the lenses were already created for the frames that I allegedly ordered I would need to eat the cost of the lenses. I tried to explain that they made an error. When I placed the order, I took a photo of myself on my phone wearing the frame I picked out to show a friend of mine. Even after I showed the sales person the photo, Eye to Eye did not want to return my money. Since they were out of stock of the frame I ordered and could not reorder the frame they wanted me to pick out another frame. This was not acceptable. I spent a considerable amount of time picking out my frame, they made an error, and then they wanted me to pay for their error. I was incensed at how they had treated me. Therefore, I demanded all of my money back. Again, they balked, so I threatened to contact the police if they did not comply with my request. Only then did they return all of money. Dealing with Comcast Cable's Customer Service was a dream compared to dealing with Eye to Eye and most people in Baltimore who utilize Cable TV would readily admit that they would rather get a tooth pulled then deal with Comcastâ??s Customer Service.
The coolest frames I've ever seen!!! – I've been all over Europe and been in many optical shops, but I have never seen such a wonderful selection anywhere. I've been to local shops here in town and this place is the Bomb. They have frames from all over Europe that are funky and unique. They helped me pick out my glasses and once I got them my friends went there for theirs after they saw what an awesome job they did with fitting me with mine. I love that guy at Eye To Eye!!! He is the best at fitting with glasses you should be wearing. Did a total make over for me. I now look like a different person. Love it!!!
