With my son, they were able to properly diagnose that he needed glasses and was able to pick some in the small shop within the vicinity within an hour of the appt.

I've been having nighttime pain and irritation in my right eye for some time now with no relief using drops, thinking I had dry eyes. Dr. Matzkin took one brief look and immediately diagnosed me with something I cannot repeat (because I can't remember) but thoroughly explained it to me in plain English...and then fixed me right up with a "bandage contact". I felt such an immediate relief that it made me emotional...I AM A VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Matzkin!
