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.

I've read a few of the negative reviews regarding the Stahl Eye Center and Galo Andrade and I'm wondering what planet these people are from. I've only had wonderful experiences. <br><br>My own doctor is not part of the practice, but I have dealt with Galo Andrade. I had cataract surgery in the past, but was not a candidate for intra-ocular lenses. I also suffer from dry eye. He is a miracle worker with contact lenses. I hadn't had a new RX in years and he worked with me for weeks in order to get me the best possible fit. Not only do my lenses fit properly now, but with his help I've been able to attain my best vision ever. He really knows his stuff. <br><br>I only have praises for the staff as well. They're respectful and professional and caring. I won't go anywhere else for my ophthalmic needs.

I have been going here for years. I have always been able to easily get an appointment with a knowledgeable doctor - and the exams have always been thorough. I had lasik a few years ago with Dr. Werner - it was the best thing I ever did and Dr. Werner was great!!! I wouldnt trust anyone else with my eyes - these guys are the best!

I had my lasik eye surgery done here seven years ago, and still use Dr. Chang as my opthalmologist. Very happy with the results (seven years and - knock on wood - still no glasses). There's usually a bit of a wait but not too bad. I follow up with Dr. Chang at the NYC office, and it's not difficult to get an appointment within a few days.
