Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "First-time visit. Dr. Vu-Gia was professional, personable, and took time to explain both the exam procedures and vision options for my personal needs. Then his optician Ashley was very helpful in explaining the various brands of frames and benefits for me. She was very diligent in working with my insurance to provide the best glasses at the least cost. Their corner storefront is smaller than some of the larger chains but I found in 15 minutes 6 frames that my wife and I both liked. At a much larger store in the Tyson’s mall, we looked for an hour and found nothing we liked. Wish I had come here 3 years ago when we moved into N VA. Highly recommend."
    Jeff S., Oakton Office
  • "I was referred to Dr. Colbourne by a friend and I am so pleased with my experience. He takes a lot of time with his patients and is very thorough...just what I was looking for. You just know you are in great hands the second you meet him! His office staff has also been exceptional. Katrina patiently helped me pick out new frames and has been awesome with every detail along the way to get me all set with new contacts. Sometimes it takes years to find the right healthcare provider! I will be a lifelong patient of Dr. Colbournes. My eyes deserve it!"
    Tracy C., Bristow Office
  • "Associates in Eyecare is a wonderful eye care practice. The staff is most courteous and professional. Dr. Lione is the best eye doctor I have ever been to. She is extremely professional and has given me perfect vision. I will always come to her office for exams and for quality contacts and glasses."
    Jerry D., Stone Ridge Office
  • "I recently went for my first eye exam at the Dunn Loring Office location. I was definitely nervous as I did not know what to expect during my exam. The staff made sure to take time to explain everything to me before so that I would know what was going to happen. Sarah at the front desk was super patient! I had to call back several times to confirm which insurance plan I was going to use based on which had better benefits. Dr. Teser also was very detailed in her review of my exam and explained in great detail her observations from my exam. I essentially got a class in optometry! I am very glad that I found this place and would definitely recommend it to others! Super clean and cute office is an added bonus to the top care that I received."
    Stephanie G., Dunn Loring Office
