I saw Dr. Budner about a month ago. He was kind and compassionate. I was totally misdiagnosed by my previous 3 doctors. I now have new contact lenses that I see great with given that I have kerataconis (sp). Highly recommend this practice. They have all the state of the art technology. There fees were slightly above what I expected but given my eye problem I would have spent 3 times the amount. His staff also were extremely helpful in sorting out my insurance.

Dr. Budner was patient, knowledgeable, and considerate. I have severe myopia and astigmatism and have failed RGP lenses and had difficulty with Toric lenses. He took the time to explain my different options and prescribed me hybrid lenses. My vision is extremely important to my occupation and I am now able to see better than I have in a long time thanks to his expertise. I strongly recommend seeing Dr. Budner and have told my family and friends about him.

Dr. Budner and his staff were exceptional. From the exam to the purchase of my glasses. They even let me exchange my frame as it was not exactly what I wanted.

Re. Howard Budner & Associates: SENIORS BEWARE!!! Three issues: 1. Delivery of product. 2. Correct lenses per vision test. 3. No “right of rescission”, i.e., you can’t cancel your order, even in less than 24 hours after placement. First, let me get out of the way that my experience with this office left me feeling humiliated and ripped off. Much of the humiliation is on me, for being gullible. 1. Delivery delay: examination done August 16, 2017. Final delivery by mail: 12/19/17. My order clearly
