With over 50,000 people helped since 2006, we have received numerous Visual Health Doctors reviews praising our friendly atmosphere and state-of-the-art optometric healthcare services. Take a look at what our patients have to say about their experiences at our six office locations!
Had an excellent experience at Visual Health. Fast and efficient processing for eye exams, even given a free trial pack! Doctor is kind and very good at his work. Recommend for optometry, especially yearly check-ups. They offer advanced medical screening of many eye diseases in their diagnostic.*
I’ve been coming to this practice for years. The doctor really listens and takes his time to answer any questions or concerns I have. They’ve made some changes with a new office and new staff and it’s fantastic. I had great help picking out a new pair of frames that I love! The staff was friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome. Sometimes you wait 15-20 minutes for an appointment, but this happens in a lot of doctor’s offices.*
After trying multiple optometrists this year, I had given up on the idea of finding contacts that would work. However, I was finally able to find the perfect fit thanks to the doctor at this location. The staff and Doctor were all very friendly and took time to make me feel welcome and comfortable (something I’ve rarely encountered at other doctors’ offices). I originally came into buy contacts but the staff worked out a deal where I could get a pair of raybans as well with out increasing my budget! 💯❗*
Nice new store! I’ve always loved there frame selections even when I used to go to their old location but I think their new store makes it look even better. The new spot is literally across the parking lot but when I went in I felt like I was at some fancy boutique. I was pleasantly surprised when I learned that they gave me the same deal as last year but I got to choose from even nicer brands. I definitely recommend this store because its a perfect happy medium from the overpriced snobby stores and the garbage “its too good to be true” cheap places that are flooding the area.
Congrats on the new office guys!!
See you next year*
Great experience – the exam was very professional and reminded me of the quality and care I used to see often when I was young. I really appreciated the no pressure sales which seems to plague optometrist offices these days. And customer service has been above and beyond. I will definitely be going back for my regular exams.*
The doctor here is very informative, kind and caring. Staff is great for repairing broken glasses and the shop is easier to reach as well being located on Fairfax Blvd.*
Wonderful experience. Doctor was wonderful and understanding. He made sure I was happy with my prescription and eye health plan. The staff was very helpful. They explained my benefits and helped me get a better deal on my contacts.*
My experience was efficient both cost and timewise. when i came in i was in a pretty big rush because i forgot to get my wifes birthday gift :/ I let the staff know i was in a hurry and they were very helpful! we were able to choose out some awesome frames and price everything out while I waited to be seen. The manager was kind enough to let the doctor know i was in a hurry and he was able to take care of me fast and well. they were able to get me the premium coating (def worth the $) and nice marc jacob frames for less than I spent on no-name brand glasses the last place i went. AND the guy who makes the glasses fixed my sunglasses for free while i was in my exam! I highly recommend this place if you want to save money and are in a time crunch!*
Had my eyes examed for glasses and contact. Dr. Ashish and his staff are professional in their job. They’re also very caring and helpful. They made wearing contact much easier for me by describing a few tricks. I’m very satisfied.*
What a GREAT doctor! Dr Chhitwal gave a slightly lesser script explaining that it would be about the same for distant but would make a significant difference for reading. And he was right. It has made a huge difference! I highly recommend this place!!*
Love Dr Ashish…he made me feel very comfortable there. Usually I get lectured by my eye doctors cause I’m really bad about taking my contacts out. However, when I came here he made me feel very comfortable. He obviously advised me away from sleeping in my contacts but also understood and steered me toward a better contact brand that was designed for people that sleep in them. Anyway, great pricing, great service and I’ve never had a long wait. I’ve been recommending this place to friends for a while and thought I share it with the world.*
a very clean office with friendly knowledgeable staff. Had a thorough exam where I was completely satisfied. Dr. Ashish answered all my questions patiently and took his time. I will definitely go back and I give them 5 stars.*
Had a great 1st exam with Dr. Chhitwal. He’s very knowledgeable and values the customer’s time. I was in and out within a half hour, with my exam complete, great vision, and new contacts. His prices are very competitive as well, so it saves me time because I don’t have to compare prices online. His staff was very efficient and friendly as well.
Definitely recommend Dr. Chihitwal to anyone looking for a long term eye doctor for anyone in Northern VA.*
Friendly staff and professional doctor. I had an eye related emergency last weekend. Dr. Ashish checked my eyes throughly. He also helped me find a specialist on Sunday to make sure my eyes were OK.*
I have been to my share of optometrist and I must say Visual Health by far is the all around best. Convenient, clean and very friendly. I got a full contact eye exam. Dr. Ashish was really nice and engaging. Overall process was very quick and smooth. I would recommend Visual Health to anyone.*
This is the best place to get your eye checked, glasses, contacts. Dr. Ashish is very personable and always has a great attitude. I suggest that everybody goes here!*
The Doctor has a great disposition and does his job well. I never had such a quick AND accurate eye exam in… ever? This prize of the office is his office staff though. I kept having one issue after other. With the insurance, flex medical card, and other things. They never showed annoyance and handled it like pros. I would love to go into detail about how much they went above and beyond but this is getting long enough as it is. On top of all that, turns out there is a closer office to me and they put in my order to be picked up there so I wouldn’t have to drive all the way back. With or without a groupon this is a great place for your eyewear needs. I’ll be taking my son in soon for their kid’s special: 2 glasses for $129, for less than the price of one I have his glasses and his spare ready to go. Thank again for everything!*
I am so impressed by Dr. Ashish Chhitwal and his team. My son received glasses for the first time and I got new contacts. From the reservation call, front desk, customer service and the doctor, we got excellent service! In my 17 years of wearing contacts, I’ve never have seen as clearly as I do now. I am forever grateful to Dr. Chhitwal. Everyone was patient with my 9 year old son as he chose glasses. They praised him and told him how great and trendy he looked. It really gave him a boost. Helping a child feel confident is definitely a gift and this place has it. Please, I highly recommend Visual Health in Fairfax, Va. You will not be disappointed, I promise!*
Professional staff. Doc has a very amiable demeanor. Just wish the choices among men’s frames were a little wider. Parking can be a pain because the parking lot is awkward.*
Excellent doctor’s office. Everyone is polite and whether you’re speaking with the doctor or selecting new frames, you can take your time and they will help you make the best decision for you. They do not try to sell you expensive items you don’t need – which happened to me at one of the chain optometrists in the area. Definitely recommend.*
This place is great! They’ve always gotten me in quickly, had available appointments, efficient ordering of contacts over the phone. It’s great!*
Personal attention and investment in their customers. And special effort to make sure you buy the frames that truly look your very best!*
Excellent and attentive! I waited for all of five minutes after showing up early to my appointment, and everyone who worked there gave very thorough and detailed explanations of what tests were happening, why, and what the costs were. I’ve never had such a positive experience at an eye provider. I would highly recommend them!*
Very friendly and helpful and always able to accommodate me in the evenings which is a huge help with work! Great selection of frames too.*
Good location. Close to metro and a good bubble tea place.*
I went in for a contact lens exam. The optometrist was great. Very knowledgeable. Took the time to educate me on visual acuity. Was a great resource from a Physician’s standpoint. I was leaving for a trip to Costa Rica the following day and was give 10 days worth of contact lens to try. Will return next week to let him know things worked out well and will try another brand of lens!*
Kat was amazing today!!!! Thank you for your help.his frames came in on Tuesday ;)*
I had an eye examination for contact lenses done there and ordered several months supply of contacts and the the experience was well worth it. The doctor was very knowledgeable and the examination was thorough. The staff was very professional and helpful and I would not hesitate to return for my eye care needs.*
Really like how easy it was to schedule an appointment and get my eyes checked out. My optometrist also did a great job answering and explaining all questions I had.*
Outstanding – not only is the standard service for eye exams, contact lenses etc better than at many places I’ve been, the doctor also spotted what turned out to be a serious neurological condition – thanks to her I got to a specialist very quickly! Plus which the staff are all so friendly and helpful, it’s really a pleasure to go there.*
I went through a few eye doctors over the past five years. I have a high astigmatism so I need an optometrist who actually gets it. The two eye doctors I used in DC seemed to just want my money but here they seem to care about vision and eye health. The location is conveniently located right by the Clarendon Metro even though parking is limited. The staff is awesome and welcoming and it feels like they really want you to be there. This is my doctor’s office for the foreseeable future.*
i bought a year supply of the daily contact lenses. the manager ( i think his name was Ummar) got me the contact lenses cheaper than online and gave me a rebate. I thought the rebate was a sales trick but i just received it as an american express gift card last week. also they hooked me up with a nice pair of shades for free! also if you go during your lunch hour there are alot of good places to eat near by so thats always a plus. parking was kind of annoying but was able to find some on the street not too far away. if you cant parallel park well then i would def suggest using the garage right around the block.*
Great selection and very helpful customer service, especially Kat. Those are what keep me coming back year after year. Always helpful with getting the right fit. Even when I had a cosmetic issue with my glasses, they replaced them as a courtesy.*
I recently moved to the area so this was my first time at Visual Health. The doctor was very nice and helpful and the staff were just as great. Every one took their time and was genuine. Definitely recommend!!*
Everyone is super nice. Thank you for the great service, Dr. Patel and Kat.*
Friendly staff. The doctor was thorough and patient. I went for a regular eye exam and contact lens fitting. I also took a dilation check up. Dr. Khosla was knowledgable and it was a delightful experience.
I was never provided a solution with my trial lenses but here they provided a regular as well as peroxide solution as a part of the materials coverage.
I chose a brand I liked and the receptionist was also kind enough to inform about a rebate option running on that brand. I will highly recommend this place and if I am still in the area, visit the same optometrist.*
I really liked the doctor and her insistence that I get a specialist appointment. The tests were thorough…. The place was clean and the staff were fabulous!*
After a long, depressing week I would’ve never thought coming into an eye doctor’s office would help cheer me up. The lovely ladies of Visual Health were very welcoming and helpful, especially very pretty lady came to my rescue after I stumbled in confused and disoriented.
The doctor and saleslady were both straightforward. The only thing that nags me with eye doctors and other healthcare professionals is what I call the “car salesman sales approach.” They did not try to use cheesy jokes to get me to buy anything. Instead, I was one the making the bad jokes. They smiled but I like to think they were laughing inside.
I am most definitely going to make this my primary eye doctor. If the head doctor is smart enough to hire a great Saturday staff, then I’m sure he’s great as well.
Tip: Saturday appointments are the best. Makes sure to shave, bathe and wear nice clothing.*
Great staff, quick and courteous service. Dr. Patel is great. Weekend hours are super convenient.*
Great customer service! Always a good time to when I visit for check-ups or to pick out glasses. Also they’re very flexible with orders, mistakes, etc. Once I lost my glasses, ordered a replacement pair from Visual Health, but then found the first pair and Visual Health gave the replacement pair sunglass lenses at no extra cost. Another time there was a delay and mistake in some glasses I ordered, so they gave me a free pair to choose! Loyal customer always.*
My first experience with them went great. Dr John Du is very friendly and nice. I went for contacts lens fitting and Dr. Du genuinely worked hard to get me a good fitting lens. 5 stars!*
Love that they are open late. The optometrist and staff are very competent. Only wish they had a larger selection of frames.*
Dr. John Du is the man. A true hard worker and a skilled professional. I hope my follow up visits will be as great as my last ones. 5 stars!*
Very friendly and helpful. Thanks Alice!*
Great customer service and flexibility.*
