I had a great experience from Dr Samii and her team during my eye exam. Their service is professional, thorough, explained each process of the eye examination and gave recommendations for my eye health. Will definitely go back and recommend their service.

The eye exam was fine but the location is not accessible and I was forced to go the back way like some third class citizen and all of that extra walking became painful and exhausting. There is no reason why a ramp couldn't have been added to one of the front entrances. The excuse that it would encroach on the sidewalk doesn't wash: they could have moved the store back a bit and made room for a ramp. They obviously don't want walk up business except from those in perfect condition. Please note: anyone with accessibility or mobility needs is NOT welcome at this new location. They spit on us. I will not be returning unless there is a ramp at the front entrance. So the exam and the people gets five stars but the lack of accessibility means no stars for the overall experience but it won't let me post without indicating a star so I have clicked on one but I really mean zero. I know when I am not wanted. Perhaps the optometrists need to move to an accessible space so that this does not impact their practice negatively?

Hello My Name is Nanda Banerjee.I recently visited Yorkville Eyecare for an eye checkup with Dr. Sara Samii, and I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. From the moment I walked in, the receptionist Mady greeted me warmly and made me feel welcome. The facility itself is top-notch, equipped with the latest machines, ensuring a thorough and efficient examination.But what truly sets Yorkville Eyecare apart is the exceptional care provided by Dr. Sara Samii. Despite her recent location change, I made it a point to follow her because of her excellence in patient care. Dr. Samii's warm demeanor and expertise put me at ease throughout the appointment, and I left feeling confident in her diagnosis and treatment recommendations.Overall, I highly recommend Yorkville Eyecare and Dr. Sara Samii to anyone in need of comprehensive eye care. Their professionalism, warmth, and commitment to patient well-being make them stand out in the field.

Honestly the best in the area. I don’t usually leave reviews but Yorkville Eye Care deserves it. Dr. Chatterjee is so lovely and takes her time with every visit. I’ve been consistently coming here for the last year and I feel like I’m in the safest hands. Bonus points the new location is so nice!! Can’t recommend them enough 🙂

Was a new patient and had initial eye exam. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The Dr. Sara Samii was really nice and efficient and explained everything. The lens crafter staff are also really friendly and helpful to find a well suited pair of glasses that fit your style and face shape. I'll continue being a patient here as it was a great experience.

The doctor explain everything you need to know and take the time to ask question about you. I"m young, my eyes were very healthy. The technology used is I think advanced. This is why I think it's overpriced, 180$. If you just want to go and have blue Light screen glasses because you do a 9-5 job in front of a screen. There's other clinic who proposed an eye exan for less than 100$. But for people with serious eyes problem and want high quality service I would definitely recommend, doctor is very competent and there's a lot of frame choices.

First on Google it's called Yorkville Eyecare but it's hard to find because it's actually a Lens Crafters...The practitioner that took care of me was very short and didn't explain the process so I was taken off guard. The doctor was insightful and made the process easy for me to understand

I think the receptionist working during the weekdays is allergic to the phone.. I had an appointment and called 4 times for an hour before my appointment to reschedule. After not hearing back I decided to go but was running 10 minutes late. She then called me back and told me because I was going to be late and the doc has other appointments I would have to wait……I cancelled my appointment. I even called a day before for something else and no one answered.Everyone’s time could have been saved by picking up the phone.I’m sure their eye care service is great but I had a long morning, it’s freezing cold outside, and I already was on the subway by the time she returned my call. So not a good way to start the day.

I am a long-time patient of Dr. Sammei I have always enjoyed the thorough, professional appointments and friendly, open demeanor. I was somewhat disappointed during my recent appointment. Previously, the assistants were helpful and warm. I found the assistant this time to be somewhat condescending and her aggressive manner added to my stress, rather than minimizing it. I felt pressured.Regarding the exam itself, Dr. Sammei was not as explanatory and detailed as before. Explanations were rather quick compared to previous visits. Also, the retinal exam was done by machine and not discussed at all. I will only hear from her about it if there are "problems".I find this approach less than reassuring. Previously we viewed the retinal scan together and discussed various aspects together. I realize that the retinal scan technique has changed but I think that a detailed discussion of the scan is important.In summary, I found that my recent appointment was markedly inferior to the excellent, professional, in-depth and friendly service that I have received in the past.

I've been going to Yorkville Eye Care for 4 years with Dr. Sara Samii. Location is great and easy to find. Everyone (receptionist & optometrist) is always friendly & patient. Billing with insurance provider is easy. They also give generous samples of contact lens if you go for a contact lens fitting. Sometime the wait to be seen can be long, but that just depends on the time of the day and the day of the week. Overall, always a great experience and highly recommend!

Wow, great way to maintain reputation.Don’t tell me to call if I have any questions or if I’m following up for the 300th time to get my doctor’s prescription. your concierge just won’t pick up the phone or won’t do anything.

We had a wonderful experience at the 33 Bloor street east location . Kind and very helpful staff! Treated my little princess great staff was not bothered by my daughter and her active self while we waited to be seen by Dr. Sara . Ana was very kind and sweet and very helpful during our hour long of picking which frames to get . The technician who did my pressure test and all the other tests ( wish I got her name ) was great , kind and understanding . Dr. Sara was kind, warm and knowledgeable and very soft spoken I didn’t feel rushed , felt understood and felt she cared about my concerns. Third time going to lens crafters leaving satisfied . Super satisfied that the photos are included in the exam usually at other places this is extra!Look forward to picking up my glasses soon!Thank you for all your help!
Today was my first visit to this Lenscrafters’s/Yorkville Eye Care and I was quite impressed. I’m disabled and use a power wheelchair and although the street entrance has yet to have a ramp installed the staff took me through to entrance of the adjacent building and into the eye clinic which is at the rear of the Lenscrafters’s store. Very nice store indeed with extremely polite well presented sales associates.I was most Impressed with Dr. Sara Samii and Associates practise and in particular, Dr Samii who was extremely patient and helpful throughout the exam. She was very professional and took me through all the steps. I felt very comfortable with her and she always asked if there were any questions that I needed answered. I use a lot of eye specialists for various issues but I shall add Dr Samii to my support team and she will become my regular Dr.You can tell immediately that their clinic which by the way is immaculate and modern that you are in good hands. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and treated me with the utmost respect.I highly recommend Dr. Samii and Yorkville Eye care to anyone in need of an optomitrist and eye care.

Best eye exam experience ever!From the receptionists till doctor every person was super helpful.I found there from google, booked the appointment easily and visited the clinic. Dr Sara Samii visited me and my husband , she did a very comprehensive examination, showed everything to us on the computer and prescribed my contact lenses, she diagnosed my husband that he has a serious retina problem. He is referred to the retina specialist in a day and completed his eye surgery in 1 week with the help of dr Samii. The receptionists even sent me the copy of his medical report and scans.I say a big thank you to her and the team.Thank you very much!

I just moved to the city and needed a new eye doctor and Dr. Samii had great reviews, so I booked and had a great experience! The whole team was lovely, the exam was super fast and it was so cool to see the retinal imaging - I also got lost on my way to the office and the girls at the desk helped me out and gave me very good directions over the phone! Awesome experience overall
