So, I finally went! They finally answered the phone! The whole reason I wanted to go so badly is because a friend suggested I go, she said they had very unique glasses for good prices. I went. Nothing special. The guy who was like the "office manager-all in one" was a cool dude.
Now, two weeks later I'm still waiting on my glasses and yet again they're not answering their phone during normal business hours.
However, my friend was right. Very cool frames for a good price. However, pricing for an exam was unclear and not really explained to well until after the fact that they've performed services.
All in all, the frames are worth the mess....depending on how bad you want a unique frame.
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.
Dr. Allouche has been my eye doctor for more than 4 years now and he's amazing. I always feel important and remembered when I go here, and even when it's busy, I get quality service.
Great for your yearly checkup. It's easy to get an appointment and they're efficient. You know exactly how much different sets of contacts will cost you with your insurance.
I decided to get a new eye doctor this year since my previous optometrist hated me as much as I hated him, was pretty pricey (even with my insurance), and had a great selection of designer frames that only Post-MBA Vonetta would be able to afford.
Gave Capitol Eyes a whirl and was rather satisfied. Dr. Allouche was very nice. It does seem to be just him and the admin guy, but they were both great. I was most impressed with how they handled my insurance stuff; no sweat on my part whatsoever. They took care of everything, layed out my costs very simply, and made sure not to tempt me with pricey frames. And the eye exam itself was a snap. I was in and out of the office in about 30 minutes. Excellent!
They do seem a tad disorganized, though, with no visible filing system and glasses orders sitting all over the place. But they didn't make any mistakes with my stuff, so that's fine by me.
So Capitol Eyes, you get 3.5 stars, and I get these great naughty librarian glasses. ;)

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.

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.
One of the best eye exam experiences I've had in a very long time.
Booking an appointment was quick and easy. Once I got there, Dr. Kotecha and her staff were super friendly and were thorough with my exam; I didn't feel like they were trying to rush me out of there. She very is professional and intuitive in her field.
Everyone should have a periodic and thorough eye exam as part of their routine primary care. I recommend going to Capital Vision!
They can determine what areas of your vision needs assessing, tests and examinations. If you tell them that you have been having "X" problems in your vision/eye, they will be able to pin-point "Y" cause.
I couldn't decide between two types of contacts, so Dr. Kotecha told me to test-try them both and return for a follow-up just to see which I preferred. My follow-up was quick and simple - she ordered my year's worth of contacts for me on the spot, and sent me a rebate for my contacts. I saved a tone of money and had really great service.
I could not be more satisfied. Definitely recommending to family and friends.
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.
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.

No wine, beer, or gas station (yet) but it has everything else a Costco should, with an amazing selection. Of course, it gets crowded on weekends, but that's hard to avoid. There are lots of checkout lanes and they move faster than you would expect.
Tip: Park in the garage and take the bridge to the store, instead of using the surface lot.
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.
Compared to other COSTCO's, this one is really nice. The floors are clean. The shopping carts roll with ease. The aisles are very large. Parking is best on the backside in the garage though. If you park in front of the COSTCO you may not find a spot.
The best Costco around.
Well lit, immaculate, wide isles, good parking, and very nice people willing to help you out.

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.
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!!!
