My review is for Stahl Eye Assoc. in New York and Garden City, and specifically Galo Andrade in the Optical department. I was diagnosed with Keratoconous when I was 16 years old and subsequently had corneal transplants in both eyes over the next 8 years. When my Opthamologist retired in 1998, he referred me to Dr. Marc Werner at Stahl. He has been my Doctor since then, and he has been fantastic. He introduced me to Galo Andrade almost 15 years ago for contact lens fitting, and I have been with him ever since. Due to my condition, contact lens fittings are very difficult, but Galo has been up to the task for almost 15 years! He not only updates my lenses, as my prescription, and the topography of my cornea has undergone many changes, but he is always aware of new technologies as they appear, and is truly an expert in the field of contact lens. Thanks to Galo, I recently started wearing the Sclera lens which now allows me to participate in many activities that previously would have resulted in a lens falling out or being lost. The customer service is impeccable. Yanella, and Jessica are the best! I have referred Galo and Stahl to everyone looking for quality eye care. Their practice is state of the art, implementing the latest technologies in the treatment of eye conditions. I give Galo, Marc Werner, and Stahl Eye Assoc. my highest recommendation. These guys really ARE the best!

I can't believe some of these reviews were written about the place I just came from because my experience has been completely different! I found Galo Andrade to be highly skilled, thorough, and extremely patient. When I mentioned I needed reading glasses when I wore my contact lenses he tried me on monovision which worked out great! He also took time to repair my old eyeglass frames which were quite bent out of shape instead of trying to sell me new ones. I never felt rushed and got the impression he truly cared about my eye care needs. I was also really impressed with Tatiana (sp?) who I believe is his assistant. I had no complaints with the rest of the staff but these two were exceptional!

I had my lasik done 18 months ago here, Dr Chang told me I would see 20/20 when he was done, On my year check up I was 20/15. There was very little side effects (halos at night) that were gone in a little over a week. I researched Lasik for over 2 years and I finally decided on Stahl, when I went in Dr. Chang just happened to be the Dr that was there that day. He was a confident guy who answered my questions and put me at ease. I was able to pay interest free for 2 years. I tell everyone with glasses about Dr.Chang and how I wore glasses for 28 years and in 19 minutes they were gone for good

I've been going to Stahl (formerly Specialty Eye Care) since 1997. I have a very severe astigmatism and farsightedness and have worn glasses and seen an opthamologist since I was 3 years old. I have always received the highest quality of care at Stahl, including personalized attention by Galo Andrade, who helped me transition from glasses into my first pair of contact lenses just a couple of years ago. After trying a pair of soft lenses which weren't able to correct my vision (and which I was not charged for), Galo painstakingly fit me into rigid gas permeable (RBP) lenses. After trying out several pairs (which I was also not charged for), we finally found a fit and I have been wearing the same prescription for years - the first time in my life I can see properly and my prescription has not changed. I have been advised against LASIK for now, while I'm still not a good candidate for it, but if and when my eyes are ready for it, I will definitely go to Stahl. <br><br>I have no desire to go to anybody else and have the utmost trust in Galo and the entire staff there. I even had a cyst ON my eyeball once, and upon my insistence, Galo stayed in the room with me while the opthamologist removed it - a scary but painless procedure which fixed the problem.<br><br>Galo is not only a contact lens expert but also very adept at picking out the right frames for your face, which are available for purchase in their office as well (and generally at a deep discount from some other frame stores).<br><br>Even if you don't have VSP or any kind of special vision care plan as part of your health insurance, Stahl is a great option because an opthamologist is a medical doctor and regardless, even basic health insurance will only require you to pay a minimum copay.<br><br>The practice is quite popular as evidenced by the full waiting room, but I have NEVER had to wait long to get an appointment or to be brought into my appointment. No complaints whatsoever here.
