The best place if you are looking for a new eye Doctor .
I go to Dr Allouche and I'm always happy cause he is very good and I don't need to take my glasses there to fix again and again and .....
Very convenient if you work near Metro Center. Fairly easy to get an appointment. I called and had one scheduled for the following week. Dr. Glenn Allouche is very nice (I think he is the only optometrist here) and I had the least anxiety-producing glaucoma test ever. I think because the machine was silent. I HATE that bullet of air they shoot in my eye and it's even worse if accompanied by a loud recoil from the machine.
I would give 4 stars but I have to deduct one star for the cluttered space. Not in the exam room but outside in the main area where all the glasses are. Not very inviting. Some cases were overflowing with glasses, others had one or two lone ones. Files and waiting orders to be picked up were all over the counter. Just could use some organization and a better waiting area.
I totally like this place. I work around Metro Center, so it's easy to walk down the street for a quick lunchtime exam. Also, they are flexible with scheduling, so it's easy to get an appointment. I have extreme anxiety when it comes to eye exams (eeek) but thought Dr. Allouche was really thorough, nice, and attentive. Yes, the place is kind of not that organized. But, I've had no problems getting an appointment, getting my contacts, or waiting forever to be seen. Very convenient.
this place is pretty awful. the retail area looks so disorganized with most glasses out of their cases and strewn about like knock-offs on canal street. some of the glasses that were hanging were hanging diagonally, and most were not in their cases. customers' orders awaiting pick-up were sitting throughout the waiting room on chairs. these things gave the appearance of complete disarray, and it actually looked like they were having a going-out-of-business sale it was so messy. the guy up front who greeted me, whom i assumed was the optician/manager was also a little odd and unprofessional. everything gave the appearance that the place was a little sketchy, and the longer i waited for my eye exam the more i considered not even keeping my appointment because i like doctors who know what they're doing and don't have sketchy business practices. thankfully, the guy up front was not the doctor. the doctor was fine--pleasant and professional. i'll end up finding another place next time, though.
i think 3 stars is about right for this place. convenient, good prices, nice people
not anything extraordinary about this place, including their selection of glasses. and always seems like they're understaffed when i'm there -- the phone is always ringing, people are frequently coming in, and the 2 guys there are just stretched thin...

Dr. Bahn has been treating my family for years. And we're a family of people with very bad vision! I very much trust his expertise. His staff is very nice and friendly. Recommend him fully.

I would like to give zero star to Dr. Kotecha. She misdiagnosed my wife and gave her the wrong prescription for glaucoma. That was not her first misdiagnosis. She recommended her to go through more detailed tests but she still told my wife that she had glaucoma. We got a second opinion from two other doctors. They said that my wife eyes are OK.
Don't trust what she diagnoses.
I was recommended to Capital Vision because my regular eye doctor at Rosslyn Eye Associates (I would give them 5 stars) was going to be out of town. It was very easy to get an appointment at Capital Vision. When I arrived, the front desk basically threw paperwork at me and then I sat in the empty waiting room for over 15 minutes when I did not see a single other person waiting. Once I was taken back to the room, I waited another 30 minutes to see the doctor. The doctor then spent about 10 minutes with me and did not seem to have solutions for my issue. Due to the amount of time I spent waiting here, followed by an unsatisfactory appointment, I will not return.
Dr. didn't ask me what my problems were, didn't listen when I tried to explain my symptoms. There was a terribly long wait in the exam room and the exam itself was 30 seconds. I would not recommend and I will not return.
It is formally recently been pretty much 5 weeks given that my lasik operations as well as my own eye are fantastic. I will view better than 20/20 no halos or perhaps just about any unwanted side effects whatsoever. The staff in Capital Vision is incredibly very helpful as well as warm and friendly as well as Dr. Kotecha is a pro. You will find there's answer why every person goes right here to get lasik done. patients rarely have to come back for enhancements.
This is the first doctor of any kind that I've stopped seeing for any reason other than relocating out of town. I found Dr. Kotecha to be snobbish, arrogant, impatient, and more interested in "selling" than "treating." I went to her for 2 years and although I felt that way after the first visit, I decided to give it another try the following year and it was the same experience. I recently switched eye doctors and was determined to have an eye disorder that Dr. Kotecha no doubt failed to diagnose and in a case where an earlier diagnosis would have been extremely helpful. Also, as others have also noted, her staff is incompetent and rude.

What a nice Costco. Plenty of parking, easy to get to and even when it is crowded, it's not bad. I actually don't mind going to Costco now. My usual Costco is the one in Gaithersburg and I hate going there. Terrible parking lot and people almost run you over. The lines are long and the people are rude. Biggest piece if shit Costco I have ever been too. Now that the Wheaton one is open, I don't plan on going to the Gaithersburg one again. I would even drive to the Frederick Costco to avoid the Gaithersburg one! All the one in Wheaton needs is to sell alcohol, but the Montgomery County scam of allowing alcohol to be sold only in county controlled liquor stores is complete bullshit!
They have the least knowledgeable glass makers. the stsff at the counter may be nice and helpful but not the people who making prescription glasses, thay have done mine with three times trys. that was first time that I had such problem.
I usually buy a good amount of fruit from costco. and this review is for the produce department, because I've noticed that the quality of fruits from this particular costco is worse than other costco I have been to. I will surely skip this costco and will choose either the one at Gaithersburg or Beltsville.
love this Costco. much better than Gaithersburg and with much more ample parking. it's a mad dash to get in and out of the other store. it is new, but it's a big store and they have great employees who are fast and efficient.
Costco is pretty good.
I dont buy everything here but there is some stuff I only get from costco cause of quality and price.

This place is amazing for multiple reasons: Had an expensive pair of titanium glasses that I had gotten elsewhere that broke, place I got them from was most unhelpful, so I went here since they offered sautering. Unfortunately the gentleman couldn't work with this type of metal, he couldn't have been more friendly & helpful in trying to track down the manufacturer to get replacement parts. Hubby got pink eye & went in assuming he'd have to get new contacts and nope they said he could keep his gas permeables, just get a new case. We were amazed by this & took kids next time they got it. On close examination it was decided they didn't need medication since it was the viral kind. The exams each time cost i think $30?! This place is not remotely out to get your money, they want to keep their customers happy. Forget the chains & support your local business by going here!!!
This is a great place to get glasses. The folks here are super warm and friendly ... and honest. They only have a doctor available a couple times a month (bring a prescription from another doctor if you like). My appointment was in the evening - the cost was $49 plus $10 if you opt for dilation. Considering the thorough exam I received it was well worth the price. They do not take insurance but they don't inflate their prices either. You could possibly spend less money this way; for instance, my wife spent $400 out of pocket at another optometrist and that was after the insurance paid their part.
Lenses are ground on site. I can't say how long that takes since the doctor was honest enough to tell me I didn't need a new prescription. Imagine that - when was the last time that happened to any of us?
If you like to be around down to earth, real people, you will not be disappointed at Crestwood Optical.
Bargain prices, quality craftsmanship and great customer service.
If you are angry at your money and really want to get rid of it then I suggest you go buy lenses and frames at those places in the mall (based on the prices the lenses and frames are made of solid gold).
If you want bargain prices, quality craftsmanship and great customer service then come here.
