We've been going here for a year. Dr. Chou is the best Optometrist he is patient and very thorough. Both myself and wife are truly happy to have Dr. Chou as our optometrist. He made us see clearer and corrected our vision compared to our old optometrist. Not only he's the best but he also authored more than 60 eye care manuscripts and an expert with contact lenses. So if you want to see clearer and what a difference between night and day. Go see and set an appointment with Dr. Brian Chou. You would not regret it. Thanks Dr. Chou

My second visit to EyeLux was as good as the first. A friendly technician put my eyes through a battery of tests (for glaucoma, peripheral vision, etc.), and then Dr. Chou worked to get exactly the right prescriptions for both contact lenses and glasses. The doctor is a specialist in a condition called keratoconus that affects my eyes, causing astigmatism. He has been able to fit me with hybrid contact lenses, the central portion of which substitute a smooth surface for the bumpy eyeballs that result from keratoconus. As a result, my vision with the contact lenses is far superior to anything that eyeglasses can produce. The office is perhaps the most pleasant office I have visited. It is airy and beautiful, with large light sculptures hanging from the ceiling. I look forward to my appointments with EyeLux and really like the results they produce.

I had a generally good experience with EyeLux. They make it easy for you to schedule an appointment and fill out the paperwork beforehand and email it in. I arrived a few minutes early to look at their glasses selection, and my eye exam started right on time. The office is very modern and clean. The equipment is high-tech, and I felt very well taken care of, from the person who tested my eyes, to Dr. Chou, who was very thorough and explained things very precisely to me. I learned a lot about my eyes, as well as potential issues to look for in the future. The only thing lacking is the very expensive glasses selection. When the cheapest pair of glasses is a pair of Ray Ban's that retail for $210, you know you have a problem. Many pairs are $250 or $300+. Even with my VSP insurance, my out-of-pocket cost for my very high-index lenses and "cheap" Ray Bans would be $500. No thank you!! I know that eye doctors wrap up overhead costs into the prices for each pair of glasses, but this is beyond reasonable. Fortunately, they gave me my prescription without any fuss (which they have to provide to you, by law), and I've ordered glasses online for under $80.
