Thorough eye exam with a professional atmosphere. The staff is excellent and friendly. I will be a regular patient going forward. I am confident that I received high-quality care and highly recommend Dr. Schlussel.

I was the first appointment of the morning so I was able to get right in. Dr. Schlussel was to the point, answered all my questions, and pointed me in the right direction for purchasing a solid pair of lenses.

Dr. Schlussel has been my optometrist for nearly two decades. He has always been great and thorough in following the condition of my eyes and for that, I am very grateful. And his staff are very professional and gracious.

Dr. Schlussel himself was good. Very informative and quick. His staff, however, is a little lacking. My glasses order was lost and no one told me until I called a month later to inquire about it. When I finally canceled my order to order through a different provider, the receptionist was unable to simply email me a copy of my prescription.

The entire staff and Dr. Schlussel are fantastic. I waited less than 10min after my arrival, they completed a thorough test and examination and Dr. Schlussel takes his time examining and talking with you. I never feel rushed and it is a very easy appointment. I highly recommend this practice!

Dr. Schlussel was actually really great, and so were the technicians Jimmy and Talia, the woman who helped me pick out my glasses were super helpful and kind as well. I especially want to thank Talia for helping me pick out frames and being understanding with me!

The doctor was thorough and the office had top of the line, updated technology. I was completely comfortable and left with no questions unanswered.

My husband and I had two consequent appointments for the regular checkup and glasses prescription. We have got even more than we expected. I was advised on what kind of glasses will make my life easier and have got a stylish frame from a famous brand by reasonable price. My husband's issue was solved by the doctor who identified the source of it and made a prescription. That problem hasn't been solved (neither identified for decades). The personnel is friendly and professional. I would highly recommend the doctor.

Dr. Schlussel is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly! He corrected my vision very thoroughly and made sure my eyes were totally healthy.
July 29, 2017, by Danae H.
The doctor is fantastic, but the girl who was doing a couple of vision tests before was really horrible. Lots of sighing, borderline disrespectful, didn't seem like she knew what she was doing.

I moved 60 miles from Dr. Schlussel about 3 years ago and I consulted with two eye doctors over the next two years. The locals did not provide the quality service that this doctor provided. This year, rather than try a third doctor, I traveled the hour or so one way to receive quality care. His staff is very professional, affable and efficient. I have no regrets traveling two hours round trip and I highly recommend him.

Very professional and knowledgeable dentist. If you have eye problems - especially dry eye problems - I highly recommend. You're in good hands here.

I took my 8 yr old and 4 yr old for a checkup and he was great. very patient, interactive and my kids actually cooperated without me telling them to. Great experience!!

I love going to their office. They are sweet, friendly, and caring. The service is amazing. The only thing is you have to wait.

I was 20 minutes late due to heavy traffic and they were super accommodating! Everything about the appointment was great. Dr. Schlussel is very knowledgeable and friendly.

Dr. Schlussel was very thorough and professional. I'm very happy with the quality of care I received.
Less than a year ago, by Amy D.
Dr. Schlussel is meticulous and thorough. He spent at least 30 minutes with me and was incredibly helpful and forthright. It has taken me awhile to find an optometrist that I like in the city and I will definitely be returning to Dr. Schlussel in the future.
June 8, 2017, by Rebecca G.
Friendly staff, short wait, very accommodating to my crying baby. Overall great experience!

Dr. Schlussel was very patient and helpful and explained everything thoroughly. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional optometrist.

Great service from everyone. First time with contacts and they're very patient, changed one out for me and were thorough with making sure I had the right prescription etc. Great staff!

Long time patient very happy with expertise and diagnosis.
June 1, 2017, by Maureen M.
No wait time (I checked in online in advance.) Very thorough and informative exam. Both the doctor and the tech took the time to explain things to me. Very efficient but also a great "bedside manner" and I never felt rushed. I also bought new reading glasses there (I broke mine). I showed them what I wanted to replace and they pulled the handful of glasses that most looked like what I wanted and explained my benefits and what my costs would be. Overall, a great experience from start to finish. I've found my new eye doctor!!!

Doctor himself was amazing, wish I could go back just because he was the best.

He was detailed and thorough. I didn't feel rushed and appreciated that he answered all of my questions.

I've been seeing Dr. Schlussel ever since I first started needing glasses in middle school. He, and everyone else in his office is knowledgeable, kind, and quick! Never had to wait very long, never had an unanswered question.
May 2, 2017, by Dayna B.
Dr. Schlussel is great, very knowledgeable, explains everything, and thorough in his exam. The office is clean and the staff is friendly. Definitely, recommend!
April 26, 2017, by Shannon S.
This was a great experience, not only was the wait very short (<10 minutes total waiting time for the technician and Dr. Schlussel), but the entire process was so smooth. Everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful. I've never walked away from an eye exam understanding what I was paying for and what my health plan was paying for. They really made sure to understand my benefits, which I greatly appreciated. In addition, Dr. Schlussel is also an excellent doctor with great bedside manner, he was very friendly and efficient. He wanted me to come back for some additional testing and explained why in detail, and even reviewed my benefits to make sure it was covered or would be a decent cost. I definitely plan on continuing to see Dr. Schlussel!

Dr. Schlussel is the consummate professional, extremely knowledgeable and patient-centered. He is easy to talk to and easy to understand. He has a superb and efficient office staff. Receptionist and billing personnel were professional and extremely well organized. The optometry technician was professional and informative and administered tests in a calm, patient manner. The dispensing optician was professional, informative and helped identify the appropriate glasses for my prescription. Bottom line, a superb Optometrist with outstanding staff.

Great Doctor, Great Experience! First of all, I had a horrible experience at a Cohen's last year; Dr S gave me a more thorough exam, which resulted in a much more accurate prescription (both eyes are not the same) and while I saw that he does sell/make glasses he gladly emailed me a copy of my scrip so I could forward it right to my optician.
Great Experience!Entire staff was personable and thorough. I felt comfortable and welcome. It's great that I could register online and that there's a comprehensive online appointment scheduling system. I will be back for a check up next year without worry!

Urgent Visit for floaters! Called for sudden floaters and flashes in left eye. Seen in 3 hours. Had benign separation of vitreous fluid from retina diagnosed with no retinal detachment. As a MD I really appreciated the quality of care. Have seen Dr. Schlussel for over 20 years

New to Contacts!Yesterday I had an eye exam for my first pair of contacts. Although my appointment was at 3 I was not seen until 3:45. However, it was well worth the wait. Dr. Schlussel was patient and extremely thorough. He answered all of my concerns and then some. His team was all very receptive and helpful in teaching me how to insert my first pair of contacts. I would 100% recommend Dr. Schlussel to new patient.

I could not ask for a better care or treatment than what I always get from Dr. Schlussel and his staff. I will not hesitate to refer my friends to you.

Great! Dr. Schussel was thorough, caring, and wise. He noticed things my previous eye doctor never saw, and offered a number of helpful solutions that addressed my eye problems. I recommend him without reservation.

6/22/11 Brad M. New York, NY
Very Professional! I was impressed by every member of this office. From Dr. Schlussel to the support team, each person I dealt with was cordial and professional. They were busy and yet kept the patients moving so as not to waste anyone's time.
6/22/11 Peter J. New York, NY
Very efficient thorough exam. It's always a pleasure to visit the office. Sabina is expert at helping me select the perfect glasses. She takes time to make sure its the right fit and style for me and Dr. Schlussel and staff are great!
Dr. Alan Schlussel is a credit to his field, knowledgeable, and kind. He is always willing to take the time to answer all questions, and explain why certain test/exams are needed or not needed. He keeps his practice current and up to date with the lastest technology to better access and treat the eye. As a patient for more than 20 years, I highly recommend him for total eye care. Also the staff at 33rd Street is wonderful, great to work with.

Great office! I've been going to this office for years and always have a great experience. I usually never wait more than 10 minutes (which is pretty darn good for NYC). Dr Schlussel and his staff are fantastic and friendly. Great frame selection too!

The most thorough exam I've every had! After having been to an ophthalmologist one month previously (where I left confused and wondering why my right eye was blurry) and told to return in a year, I took matters in my own hands and called Dr. Schlussel for an optometrist exam. Within 5 minutes Dr. Schlussel diagnosed the problem, gave me a referral to get the problem taken care of and then proceeded to give me the most thorough eye exam I've every had! He is also one of the most personable doctors I've known.

I've been coming to Schlussel for over 10 years. I wouldn't trust anyone else. Dr. Schlussel and his staff are the best!
From: Barbara A. ,Manhattan
As usual, my experience at Dr. Schlussel's office was very pleasant. Dr. Schlussel is extremely professional, knowledgeable and thorough and very careful in his examination. His Assistant is very kind and polite as are the staff at reception. Ms. Krasnov, Optician, is very nice and has a large selection of frames and can obtain anything one requires. All in all, an A+

Hope for the Hopeless! I thought I would never be able to see without blurred vision, much less be able to wear contacts without my eyes turning "devil red," again. I had been going to another eye clinic and developed a problem out of nowhere. There were no effective interventions. The diagnosis and situation weren't logical, I wasn't being heard, and I was basically told I had a condition I would have to live with for the rest of my life. After countless appointments and eight months later I got fed up. I looked online for a doctor that effectively treats "dry eye" and I found Dr. Schlussel. He was very thorough and really listened to me (a dying practice in medicine these days). He told me he knew the problem and had a plan. His diagnosis was spot-on and something I had suspected but had never been heard. He was wonderful at taking the time to review my treatment plan and has given me hope that my vision will improve (already has in just a couple of days) and I'll be able to see clearly AND wear contacts again!
