StarStarStarStarStar 5 stars for Advanced Eye Care —    (Patient since 2010)

I have been a patient of Dr Harney at Advanced Eye Care for 30 years and I would never consider changing my optometrist. The entire staff is courteous and competent. Also I have seen advances in the instruments used for evaluation over the years.


StarStarStarStarStar Rev. Paul Millin —    (Patient since 2013)

A great experience, professional staff with a customer service mindset. Even with all that is going on their process was flawless and I was in and out of the appointment without any delays. They obviously have their timing down and the rooms used for patients were spotless and marked with sign as to the status of being clean and ready for use, then the staff would change the status once we entered the room. I was very comfortable being there and needed to get the appointment complete.

I can't say enough positive things about this office. I've been a patient here for years.

Excellent experience as usual! The staff is incredible. I was impressed with the COVID precautions as well.


StarStarStarStarStar Awesome!! —    (Patient since 2018)

Great service. I would definitely recommend a friend here if they ever ask. The assistant was so very understanding and helped me with whatever I am having trouble with. The doctor always makes me feel at ease. For some reason, the people managing the glass model service have been less than ideal in terms of welcoming but I will digress. Great place!!!!


StarStarStarStarStar Super friendly staff —    (Patient since 2017)

The staff at advanced eye care is so friendly. I always have great experiences from check in, to initial tests, to dr keeping me fully informed, to ordering contacts/glasses. They all work well together. I felt safe visiting during these days of Corona.

Occasionally the doctors do run behind. Typically it is due to an unexpected emergency that has been added to our schedule. We do our best to accommodate any and all of our patients experiencing such emergencies without disrupting our regular schedule, but it is often challenging to do just that. We apologize for not alerting you to the fact we had this type of scenario during your visit.

StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since 2010)

Very professional, and kind. My only problem, I had an appointment on a particular day, actually a reschedule due to the virus. However my appointment got moved, I was not notified of the change. If I hadn't called before hand I wouldn't. Have know until I made a wasted trip. There must be an easier way to notified patients of a cancelled or reschuled appointment. Other than I have been a long time patient long before it became Advanced Eye Care.

We have experienced many challenges with the schedule over the past few months and all of them are directly related to the COVID 19 pandemic. The biggest challenge is forecasting what the schedule will be in the future due to the fact that the state can not set safety guidelines for any significant length of time. The schedule has had to change on a month to month basis as we navigate this difficult terrain and we appreciate the understanding of our patients that things are not at all back to normal for any of us as much as we all wish they could be. The ladies that make up our front desk team are instructed to confirm appointment times when making our required confirmation call, we apologize if this did not occur during your confirmation call.

My concern with my appointment was the young lady who took care of me initially with the testing I felt she was inexperienced with taking the pictures of my eyes and another person had to come and assist, holding my eyelids open to do the test. I was not happy about the way it was done and concerned about the accuracy of the test. I have been a patient there for many years and have never had this happen before. It may be she was very new to the office. She was a very polite and a friendly young woman and I have no issues there. Dr Harney and Dave were wonderful and the staff at the desk as well.

Finding a good eye doctor is like trying to find a good dentist, they are a rare find. Advanced Eye Care Associates is just that a rare find. From the moment you enter the office your are greeted by a professional staff. Dr. Karalekas truly cares about your well-being. I have had some medical issues that could affect my eyesight and he addresses them in a way I can understand. Then there is the staff that helps with the selection of hrames, etc. They have an "eye" for helping you select the nicest frames. They also work within your insurance guidelines. For the best place to go I'd highly recommend Advanced Eye Care Associates.

I called the office on my way home from work to ask for an unscheduled appointment within the hour to check a left eye issue. My call was handled promptly and professionally with the outcome for me to stop into the office for an exam. I was immediately escorted to an exam room to give basic info and within 10 minutes was being examined by Dr K. The Dr quickly determined the problem and reviewed the details of the situation with me. He described the various treatments and had a staff member call in a prescription.

Elizabeth, we apologize for the inconvenience the wait time caused during your visit. In healthcare, the days are almost always unpredictable and dynamic in nature. Occasionally emergency situations present themselves that force us to make difficult decisions that can effect the flow of the schedule. We do our best to communicate when this occurs to our patients so they may decide to keep the appointment or reschedule. We're sorry this did not occur in your case.

I have been use to have these appointments drawn out over 4 or 5 visits, presumably to soak the insurance companies. It was a great waste of my time having to burn leave and make the trips. My only minor complaint, against the industry is that they sell 'glasses' that are not al all made of "glass". I do not have confidence that these poly-whatever constructs will be able to put up my amount of wear and tear.

StarStarStarNo StarNo Star Waiting an hour past appointment time —    (Patient since 2014)

I feel that treatment is good, but the wait time is unacceptable to me. No matter how long in advance I make an appointment, I usually wait about an hour past my appointment time. Not sure why that is, but my feedback is to look at your appointment scheduling, and if you need to spread them out more. When I asked, I am told that the provider is running behind. I can understand that to happen occasionally, but not every time. I rush to my appointment from work to be on time, and it is not okay that I then sit in the waiting room for an hour.


Reply

Andrea, our records show you called a few days prior to your appointment. Since the nature of your call indicated a medical emergency we offered a time that same day on which we had an opening. You were unable to take an appointment that day so we did our best to accommodate your schedule and thus fit you in when at a time which was more convenient for you. We will always accept a patient in need of medical attention and at the same time try to schedule an appointment which is the least disruptive to our schedule in an effort to ensure that particular doctor stays on time. Patients often are unable to accept what we offer despite the nature of their emergency so we will occasionally fit them in along side another patient which will typically cause a delay in the doctor's schedule. We apologize if that was not communicated to you at the time of your call.

I don't think I've ever been treated so phenomenally by a team of people before! From the moment I walked in, to the second I left, I was attended by a kind, curtious, staff that just wanted to help. They explained, in detail, everything I needed to know, and if I didn't understand something, they didn't hesitate to explain it in simpler terms. They seemed genuinely concerned about my opinion and took all the time needed to find me a perfect fit for my new glasses! Needless to say I won't be going anywhere else!

My son and I are patients here.I was midway through my exam and told worker I was wearing contacts. She had me redo my exam after finding this out. I could not afford a $200.00 contact lense evaluation, and when the doc came in I explained that I wear daysoft contact lenses that are really cheap from Scotland. I told him it was my last pair. I asked him if I could possibly have a sample because I didn't have glasses. He did not like that I went through a contact lens company that was cheap in Scotland. He told me to keep my contact lenses in and ride it out for the next couple of days knowing I don't even have glasses. I noticed tons of samples of contact lenses that he easily could have given me if he gave any care about my eyes he would have given me a sample like eye doctors in the past have simply been able to do. They actually care about their clients eyesight. I asked him 3 times and he shuffled me out of the room while I waited to be evaluated for a coworker that was very friendly, email, that picked out a nice pair of glasses for me. I don't understand why he couldn't have just said no I cannot give you a sample of contact lenses because you might be a liability. But I don't think that was the case, and the next time I go to an eye doctor it's not going to be this one. I've been waiting a week for my glasses and I still have the old contact lenses in my eyes.


Reply

Hi Robin. We do our best to screen patients during the appointment scheduling process to find out if they are contact lens wearers. The pre-exam process is different for those who are and are not. In your response you mentioned that it is a liability for a practice to give out contacts without doing a contact lens exam. That is exactly right and the doctor should have explained that to you clearly. In fact this is a MA state law that contacts are treated exactly like a prescribed medication. All optometry practices have a separate fee for a contact lens evaluation because it is considered a choice to wear them instead of glasses and not a necessity for the patient to have (which is why insurance companies generally do not cover it). Those fees will of course differ. We will often give patients trials until they can come in for an evaluation; if they are current contact lens wearers and have been prescribed lenses by our doctors in the past. However there was no contact lens prescription on file for you from any previous visit so this option was not possible. As far as glasses are concerned we can generally turn around a purchased pair in one to two days, as we are controlling the manufacturing process. If the glasses are processed through insurance then we have no control over the time it takes for the glasses to be made.

They have the most modern technology. No longer do we get drops to numb our eyes because they have scanners. You have me for life!!!

The nurse who prepped me to meet the doctor, the doctor who saw me, and the guy who helped me pick up my prescription glasses were all wonderful. I suggest people should just try them even if you already have an eye doctor. Soon as I left the office I recommended it to a friend who already had an eye doctor. My friend has already called for an appointment to be seen.

I have been a patient of Dr. Harney for over 20 years. A few years ago we worked with me over the course of 1 year to find contact lenses which allow me to see near and far. His diligence paid off. Even with a prospective move from the area, I plan on coming back to see Dr. Harney.


StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since 2017)

Aside from an issue with a last minute appointment change by staff, everything went very well.


StarStarStarStarStar Emergency visit —    (Patient since 2018)

I work in the plaza and they were able to fit me in on an emergency basis due to an eye injury. They got me in right away and Dr. Harney was more thorough during his emergency exam than my previous eye doctor was during my annual eye exams. Once this eye issue settles down I am planning on scheduling an appointment for a new patient visit. I am very appreciative of the office working with my schedule and fitting me in so I can get this issue resolved. Thanks!

Hi Samantha. We apologize for the delay. Occasionally we do have unforeseen circumstances such as emergencies that can cause the doctor to get behind. We do our best to keep patients informed of any set backs so they may have the opportunity to reschedule if they desire. I'm sorry if we did not keep you up to date during your visit.

While we do have staff members that speak many different languages including Khmer, Spanish and Portugese, they are staffed to handle specific job duties and are not here to provide translation services. We do try to accommodate patients to the best of our ability in this regard, but we do highly recommend bringing a family member or friend to the appointment if language communication is a concern.

Loved my visit. Firstly, let me start by saying that I found Advance Eye Care Associates thanks to the many online positive reviews. My eyesight has been off for years. I have seen several neuro optimologist and have had many expensive tests done. I was concerned about going to any eye doctor. Fast forward, Dr. Christopher Karalekas and his team performed extensive tests using the latest technology. With a smile and great energy, he explained each test and my results in lament terms and I actually understood it. The end result was that I needed new glasses to address my astigmatism and tear drops for my dry eyes. I was so happy to see again.

StarNo StarNo StarNo StarNo Star Charged for non-existent service —    (Patient since 2016)

The doctor performed a routine yearly eye checkup, with all the hallmarks of a routine eye exam - basic vision test, pictures of the eye, etc. However, the office charged me $95 because they classified it as a "contact lens exam." There was absolutely nothing different in the exam from a routine eye appointment, but they charged me nearly $100 for a completely nonexistent service; when I asked the front desk agent how my appointment was different from a standard $10 co-pay eye exam, she literally had no answer. I will likely be switching providers because of this, especially because they require this $95 checkup every year just to re-order contacts.


Reply

Nathaniel, We apologize for the lack of communication. The contact lens portion of the exam is always a separate charge no matter where you go for eye care, although fees may vary. This is because it is an additional service provided by the doctor. He must evaluate your vision, the fit of the contact lens and the health of your eye. These services are required by the doctors in order to write a prescription for contacts. It is also required each year for contact lens patients. The yearly requirement is because contact lenses are considered a medical device and treated much like a written prescription for medicine at the pharmacy. Unfortunately most insurances do not provide coverage because contact lens wear is considered to be elective and not necessary for vision correction unlike glasses. Occasionally contact lens wear can be considered medically necessary, but requires a specific medical diagnosis due to a medical condition.

I actually enjoy my eye appointments. Advanced Eye Care invests in their business and has cutting edge screening equipment. I am confident my eye health is being properly evaluated.

We apologize for your wait. We understand that your time is valuable.

StarStarStarStarNo Star Good service but over scheduled. —    (Patient since 2016)

They saved my vacation when both my clear and sun glasses broke the same week. The support staff is amazing. I had very good service during my exam but the office was a bit over scheduled. I waited about 20 minutes after my appointment and another 20 minutes between the preliminary testing and actually seeing the doctor. The whole appointment ended up being two hours long.


StarStarStarStarStar Amazing! —    (Patient since 2017)

Wow, it was a pleasant experience coming to Advanced Eye Care Associates. Dr. K was very friendly, and enthusiastic about eyes! It was refreshing to have such kind staff who were also knowledgeable. I felt comfortable.


StarStarStarStarStar The BEST Optomestrists —    (Patient since 2010)

Advanced Eye is hands-down the best optometry office in the area! My entire family and I have been seeing Dr. Karalekas for all our eye care needs longer than I can remember. Not only do we get quality care, he treats us like family – you can't ask for more than that!

StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since 2017)

I made my appointment based on an outside recommendation. I couldn't have been more pleased with the entire experience. I was impressed with the state of the art technology and the expertise of the technician who did the initial tests. Dr. Sikalis took the time to explain the results of all the screenings and the implications. Dave was extremely helpful and knowledgeable regarding choosing my new frames. I have already recommended Advanced Eye Care Associates to family members and friends.

My experience and that of my 4yr and 12yr old daughters was far superior to those at Mass eye an ear, a mile from our Boston home. The children were treated with age appropriate care and Dr Harney takes time to explain everything. Highly recommend.

I found your office when I worked at the Cross Point Towers (right across the street), so it was convenient at first. But I had also recently had some trouble finding a good eye doctor, and had some bad experiences so I was skeptical. Dr. Karalekas is the best! He is the main reason that I love that place. About seven years ago my work office moved from Lowell Cross Point to a building in Waltham (and I live in Shirley) my point being Lowell is not super convenient for me, but I refuse to find another Dr. because I really love Advanced Eye Care!!

Ive been going here now for about 4 years or so. My girlfriend had recommended them to me when my primary care physician had mentioned i should have my eyes checked on a regular basis (which i had never done.. Ever). So i went to Advance eye care to get checked out and everything was pretty much OK but its nice to know for sure there are no underlying issue. I go get checked every year just to see if anything has changed. They are very efficient in the office and the Exam takes no time at all. I would and do recommend this office to anyone who need their vision checked.

StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since 2010)

Hi! I cannot say a negative thing about AECA. From the front desk staff to the techs to Dr. Harney, service and care is excellent. I feel welcome when I arrive, I feel the tech staff is well-versed in the field, and Dr. Harney is likely the most dedicated eye care professional in the business. I drive nearly an hour from Salem, MA for my visits, and despite my frustration with traffic, the effort is worth it! thank you all for your kindness, professionalism and dedication. -Lisa Cammarata

StarStarStarStarStar First Class Optical Care —    (Patient since 2012)

Recently I've been dealing with some neck issues, and frustrating doctor visits - lack of attention, being rushed in and out, etc... This is absolutely NOT the case at Advanced Eye Care. Dr. Karalekas spent a great deal time with me, actually listening to how my neck issues were affecting everyday tasks such as working on the computer and reading. He took the time to determine a better prescription for reading glasses, and went the extra effort to adjust my current glasses so I'm not straining my neck. The staff and physicians truly care about the patients - their professionalism is truly appreciated.


StarStarStarStarStar Excellent Eye Care —    (Patient since 2017)

A friend of ours in Stow recommended Dr. Harney to us. I was a bit reluctant to travel to Lowell but it was well worth the extra drive. Dr. Harney is excellent; he obviously enjoys his work and takes time to explain every detail to you. The equipment in the office is state-of-the-art, critical to me as eye diseases run in my family. Really positive experience!

The experience I had yesterday was very thorough. Dr. K. was great at explaining everything going on with my eyes. His excitement about all of it was contagious! Everyone was so pleasant, I've already recommended the office to family.


StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since 2014)

My only complaint is that I felt pressured by the "add on" products and services offered. That is when I did not feel like I was being listened to. It was also very vague as to what I would actually be paying for the add ons - I wasn't told what they would cost, just that they were being "recommended". In the end the only way I knew what I was paying for was to see the printed invoice - and they were not able to print one for me at the time due to some computer glitch, so I still don't know what I am paying for. The eye care is fabulous, so I will be staying for that in spite of the pressure, but I still don't like it.


StarStarStarStarStar Great Service —    (Patient since 2010)

The service at Advanced Eye Care is always great! From the check-in to the eye exams the staff pays great attention to making your visit as comfortable as possible!

Great staff that was very friendly and helpful. They took lots of time explaining everything and helping my daughter with her contacts for the first time. The lady helping her during her contact instruction was super patient and so very nice. Front desk was extrememely helpful and friendly. The only negative issue was the amount or wait time in the actual vision exam room to see the doctor- my daughter was getting upset she was forgot about - but I understand it was pretty busy. The doctor was very knowledgeable and freindly. I would highly recommend to anyone.

I have serious issues with how I was charged for my visit. I feel that I have been overcharged and I was not given my insurance discount on my eye glass frames. I did have some charges taken off after I called and spoke with Gerry but after looking over my statement.
