Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I have been going to Erie Optical for 3 years now. My sister referred me to Dr. Waldman after her great experience with him and the office. We had a previous eye doctor and the experience was not good and they charged so much. So when I went to Erie Optical I was so pleased with the office and Dr. Waldman's expertise and thoroughness. I ended up referring my parents and grandmother to Erie Optical too. I will never going anywhere else!!!""

  • ""They are the best- Doc Waldman takes his time with you and the staff members, like Karen, Brigit, Linda do everything they can to help you look and feel good, after all, fitting glasses is not a job for everyone!!
    You can’t go wrong there and the service is the best!""
