StarStarStarStarStar Excellent Medical Care for Your Eyes —    (Patient since Tue Mar 29 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

I am so pleased with Northern Virginia Doctors of Optometry, Dr. Giles, and her support staff. I went in for a routine contact exam but mentioned I'd been having some problems and everyone took my concerns very seriously. I received an extremely thorough exam and was referred to another doctor to further investigate my issues. At other practices where I brought up the same issues, I was just given contacts, sent on my way and told that this was the best they could do for me. It was so incredibly refreshing to be taken seriously and treated with care and concern. I am recommending NVDO to all my friends and family precisely because of the level of care, time and understanding I received.

Great eye doctor's office! - I have only ever met with Dr. Snively so my review is reflective of her and the team's great work! They are all incredibly professional, appointments run on time, and they take time to assess broader eye health during the annual check. In addition, they offer great weekday evening options and weekend slots so I can see them even though I work in DC. They also help me find good contact lenses that both fit my needs and budget.

Received a thorough examination promptly and enjoyed my conversation with Dr Snively.

I've been a client of Dr. Snively's for 20 years and I've always been very pleased with her care as well as her courteous staff who make the visits so pleasant.

Support was very good for same day appointment. I have always used this Eye doctor, and the ability to fit me in so quickly was wonderful. Thank you!


StarStarStarStarStar Excellent service as always.  —    (Patient since Thu Feb 21 00:00:00 MST 2008)

Excellent service as always. Dr. Snively is a real pleasure, and obviously quite adept at her occupation.


StarStarStarStarStar Fantastic Service —    (Patient since Mon Jul 11 00:00:00 MDT 2016)

I have worn glasses my for 25 years and have seen my fair share of eye doctors. I am consistently blown away by the service and care of the Northern Virginia Doctors of Optometry and their staff. I will be utilizing their services as long as I am in the area.


StarStarNo StarNo StarNo Star Professional Optometry but Robotic —    (Patient since Thu May 17 00:00:00 MDT 2018)

Firstly, the technician and the Doctor who did my exam were very impersonal. I left there feeling like I had just been part of some robotic training. It's a shame nowadays that Doctors feel they need to keep patients at arms length and not get personal. This place takes first place in staff with zero personality and needs to take some lessons on asking patients some questions to break the ice - and maybe, just maybe, adding in a smile wouldn't hurt either. Furthermore, upon checkout, though I was advised of the $39.99 extra fee for the diagnostic exam there was an additional fee of $29.00 that wasn't disclosed - (and the extra charge for trying on contact lenses - which I didn't do) these charges on top of the "regular" eye visit charge of $125. This should be disclosed up front upon making the appointment. I felt I was getting nickel and dimed. I'm surprised they don't charge to adjust your glasses! Would not come back again.


StarStarStarStarStar Outstanding service —    (Patient since Wed May 28 00:00:00 MDT 2008)

They were outstanding service because the front desk knows some American Sign Language (ASL). Also, they aware that I am Deaf and they used paper and pen to write back and forth. They are awesome service with front desk, doctor, and others.

Our family has been coming to NoVa Eye Doctors for over 15 years and they are all like our family. Our vision health and *style* is excellent under their care, products and services. It is always a pleasure to see them!

Knowledgeable doctors, friendly staff, clean office, quick service and a large selection of eyeglasses.

The receptionist named Lorena or Loretta was EXTREMELY rude and awful to my Fiance. Doctor Kim and her technician were great. We will be looking for a different office moving forward and hope that your management takes action to reprimand this receptionist for her horrible and rude customer service.

After having a couple of iffy interactions with one of the optometrists (which resulted in my lens being incorrectly ground and about 2mm off, and my having to wear these glasses for 2 years), I was given by Dr. Kim to Brian. Brian did a phenomenal job fitting me to my new glasses, and even found the 2mm discrepancy which confirmed my suspicions. He made me aware of a different tint of Transitions, which I instantly chose, and finally made me have great anticipation for my new set of glasses - arriving in about a week. Can't wait! No more squinting my left eye!!

I was blown away at how professional Dr. Smithson and everyone is at NVDO. D. Smithson promised to help change my vision before I left and he is a man of his word.

I recently relocated to Reston and visited this office for the first time. I was scheduled with Dr Kim who I found to be very professional, friendly, excellent listener and bedside manner. I have been an RN in the health field for 30 years, therefore I am very particular about the health care provider and services I receive. I would recommend Dr Kim and the entire staff to anyone looking for Optometry services. I also enjoyed choosing my eyeglasses with the help of the eye wear staff. They were also friendly and took interest in helping me choose the right glasses.


StarStarStarStarStar Exceptional staff! Great Office!  —    (Patient since Mon Oct 31 00:00:00 MDT 2011)

I have been coming to this office for 4 years. The staff if always extremely friendly. They are very well organized and there is minimal waiting, if any at all. Dr. Sparrenberger is absolutely amazing! I am sure the other doctors are great but I make a point to see him every time.

Dr. Smithson is outstanding! He listens to our needs, has a thorough understanding of all the options, and is excellent as communicating with us. The staff is friendly and we always feel welcome. Would highly recommend NOVA Doctors of Optometry to everyone!


StarStarStarStarStar Great staff and a wonderful doctor  —    (Patient since Fri Jan 24 00:00:00 MST 2014)

Dr. Smithson is truly amazing. Since 5 years ago that I’ve been seeing Dr. Smithson, my eyes vision improved a lot which it was never like that before. Unlike other doctors he doesn’t change my eye numbers if it’s not necessary and I truly appreciate that! I feel so lucky to be his patient!!!


StarStarStarStarStar The eyes have it! —    (Patient since Mon Jul 26 00:00:00 MDT 2010)

Been coming to Dr. Sparrenberger for years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. The optometrists are also always extremely professional and helpful.

Came in to get a check-up due to becoming more near-sighted. Set an appointment for about a week later. On the day of the appointment, I arrived on-time and was attended to within 5 minutes of checking in. All of the tests were understandable and the staff members accommodated my needs. Getting a new pair of glasses in a few days! Had a decent time, for a check-up.

I always have a good experience when visiting the practice. Saturday appointments are very convenient and are on time.

Always easy to get an appointment with a great eye doctor. I’ve been seeing the same one, Dr. Snively, for years, and she is excellent: she takes the time to understand exactly what’s is going on with your vision and comes up with N excellent prescription. When buying eyeglasses, the range of frames and lens options is far-ranging and there’s never any pressure: the opticians take their time with you.


StarStarStarStarStar Everything was first-rate! —    (Patient since Wed May 07 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

Everything was first-rate!


StarStarStarStarStar Great group of folks at Reston's NVDO.  —    (Patient since Sat Mar 18 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

My annual eye exam......I would like to thank the staff at Reston's NVDO for making my checkup meaningful. They take customer service to the next level, from the time I arrived for my appointment the front staff were very attentive and customer focused. Dr. Kim was awesome in her detailed check up and cared about my health and how that could affect my vision. I was given great medical advice and offered no pressure options. I was able to close my appointment out with John who helped find the right pair of glasses that was affordable and looked good too. He took his time to see that my choices were addressed and with patience I found what I wanted. Overall I would recommend the NVDO office in Reston, VA if you are new to the area or looking for a place that takes care of you and the family.

My appointment was on time. The exam was with explanations on results, and the optician was great. I'm glad at making the choice going there. One factor was the large selection of frames.

I was very impressed with staff and Doctors at NVDO. I didn't feel like cattle, like some of the mall places make you feel. They took the time to explain everything and in a way that was easy to understand. They were especially a big help picking out the right glasses for my face.

I have been a client starting with Dr G in Crystal City over 20 + years ago. If there is anything I did not like I would have left a long time ago. The doctors and professional staff are above the best.


StarStarStarStarStar If you value your vision, come here! —    (Patient since Fri Feb 09 00:00:00 MST 2018)

My son recently saw Dr. Smithson at his Reston office. This was by far the most thorough exam I have ever seen! Dr. Smithson probably spent 5x longer with us than any other doctor has with an exam for anyone in my family. Professional, top-of-the-line diagnostics and an amazing personality.... my entire family will now be seeing Dr. Smithson. It's worth the drive!

Thank you to Dr Smithson and optician Brain Quinn!!! Dr Smithson made my exam enjoyable. He was very engaging and provided all kinds of information regarding my eye health. As usual Brian went above and beyond to make sure I was well informed about new technology and what was covered by my VSP plan. His customer service and attention to detail deserves recognition. He is an asset to your business success and customer retention!

I have been seeing Hope Snively for over 30 years. Your practice is wonderful. The whole experience is always a pleasure. I even convinced my husband to transfer his eye care from another doctor. He could not be more pleased.

Dr. Smithson was just great. We went over all the information, he showed me and explained each of the pictures of my eyes, laid out what he suggested for me going forward, and let it up to me to select how I wanted to proceed. I've been seeing him for over 10 years and highly recommend him.

I broke my glasses that I had for years and was in need of new glasses as well as a new prescription. I was able to schedule a morning appointment with Dr. Snavely the next day, where I received my new prescription and new glasses! They were able to make lenses for my glasses in house! I was amazed with the customer service from the moment I entered to the second I left. I highly recommend and will continue to visit for any eyewear needs.

I have been a client of NVDO for almost 11 years (Since Jan 2007). I chose NVDO is because they are partnered or associated with TLC Lasik Center where I got my lasik procedure. I am really happy that I've found and chosen NVDO. I first saw a couple of DRs there and ended up with Dr. Sparrenberger. I love that he is outgoing, friendly and professional. He makes the whole eye exam experience fun, and he is an experienced optometrist. He is patient and answers all my questions. The check in/out staff and Clinical Technician are friendly and helpful. The Opticians there can be good, depending who I worked with. I am very picky about how my glasses sit on my face. A year ago, Oct 2016, there were 2 opticians that helped me (1 female and 1 male), the male optician is the best. The female one seemed impatient and in a hurry, and she expected me to settle with the adjustments she made. I ended up going to the male optician, who was more concerned with how I like the glasses to fit, and he was more of a perfectionist. After 1-2 adjustments, the glasses fit perfectly, the way I want them to. I feel like he and I are on the same page. NVDO also has a great selection of eyewear - glasses and sunglasses. I love the Kate Spade glasses and the Maui Jim Sunglasses, both prescription, from NVDO. I have a pair of Oakley that I got somewhere else, and NVDO is able to send my Oakley sunglasses to Oakley to have new prescription lenses put in. I am already eyeballing a pair of Maui Jim that I plan on getting next Summer. It takes about 2 weeks for all prescription glasses to be ready. I highly recommend NVDO. If you're looking for a great and experienced optometrist who is outgoing, Dr Sparrenberger is the one for you.

Great service and appointment. The staff was great, helpful on decisions and letting me know how my vision was and what you'd do to help with my new prescription.


StarStarStarStarStar Dr. Giles is Fantastic! —    (Patient since Fri Oct 17 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

Dr. Giles is Fantastic! Efficient and still very thorough. I had several questions and she took the time to answer every one, and she helped me with my dry eye issue. I highly recommend Dr. Giles. On the office/admin side, I do wish the online appointment system actually worked. I've tried to use it a few times and never receive a follow-up to actually schedule the appointment, but receive auto-email after auto-email reminding me that it is time for my annual exam.


StarStarStarStarStar The best eye care in Virginia! —    (Patient since Thu Apr 03 00:00:00 MDT 2008)

I have been a patient at NOVA Eye Docs for 10 years, and continue to be pleased with their care and service. No matter how busy they are, each member of the team takes the time to answer my questions and address my concerns. The opticians also do not try to push a certain brand of glasses to me; instead, they work with what I want and help me choose the best options.


StarStarStarStarStar Great People, Great Place! —    (Patient since Wed May 13 00:00:00 MDT 2009)

I honestly look forward to my annual eye exams at NVDO. Scheduling is easy and convenient, and the staff is always polite and helpful. Dr. Sparrenberger, in the Reston office, is extremely knowledgeable, great at inviting and answering questions, and always upbeat.

I have found my new Optometrist. This place incredible...the staff was very helpful and courteous. Brian Quinn is a wealth of knowledge in sports optics.....he helped get me fitted in a great pair of Rudy Project cycling glasses that would accept my outrageous prescription. Dr. Smithson was right on point with what I was needing and provided great information on the right style of glasses that would meet my prescription needs. They also have a great selection of name brand glasses for any style or fashion need.


StarStarNo StarNo StarNo Star Customer service fell severely short —    (Patient since Sat Oct 14 00:00:00 MDT 2017)

After my eye exam, where I was pushed to add on retinal imaging for additional charge, they then pushed me to purchase only the most expensive lens and coating options without reviewing other alternatives. It was the end of their business day, so I understand that they were interested in leaving. It was obvious that the person helping me was more interested in his commission than serving his customer. It should be expected that customers will need time to select frames and should be offered options other than the most expensive. In the end it was my fault for signing on the dotted line but I am very disappointed with my experience. The (most expensive) coating that was requested by my optometrist also results in a blue mirroring that I was not warned about and would not have chosen. It causes a glare off of the back of the lenses that is distracting. They also said that I had no coverage for a second pair of glasses and would need to return with more documentation at a later time. As a federal employee I have many options for vision coverage and I had specifically chosen an insurance option for offering 40% off a second pair of glasses. I knew that I had the coverage and guessed that this would be easily resolved once I brought in my insurance documents with details. When I returned 3 days later to show them the documentation, they said that they don't deal with submitting claims to the insurance company and that I would have to pay up front without knowing how much would actually be covered. The insurance company told me earlier that day that previous customers had used the discount for a second pair of glasses and this location had submitted to insurance. The two women that were working at that time were very short with me and were not willing to try to get to the root of the problem. It almost seemed that they were just trying to make me go away. When I picked up my glasses, these two women were equally brief and not friendly.


StarStarStarStarStar Great place for eyecare and glasses —    (Patient since Tue Sep 02 00:00:00 MDT 2008)

I've been getting my eyes checked here and buying my glasses here for over 10 years. Dr Snively is great; she explains things well and is very thorough. The office also keeps up with technology well. As for the opticians, they are awesome. I'm horrible at picking out frames, so they offer advice that is always spot on

This is a very professional office from the Office Manager, to the Technician to Dr. Snively. All personnel are TOP NOTCH and very knowledgeable in their fields. Patients are treated with respect and kindness. They understand that seniors are on a budget and work with you on insurance etc. I find Dr. Snively more thorough and detailed in her examinations than any Eye Doctor I have gone to. She explains issues in great detail and goes over x-rays etc. so the patient understands her eye issues.

StarStarStarStarStar Very professional and polite doctors, though.. —    (Patient since Tue Jan 31 00:00:00 MST 2017)

I had an appointment for general check on February 7th. The stuff and Doctor Jiles were very professional, polite and caring. However, my glasses didn't come in on the time. Plus, I was told to come pick up the glasses on Wednesday, when showed up and waiting 30 min cause they couldn't find my glasses, it appeared that glasses were not ready until Friday. Quite unpleasant experience on this side, especially that no one felt anyhow responsible or carrying to apologise for the experience. Finally, they offered to change lenses for free on a different pair of glasses. I will take the offer, but have to say politeness is obviously not the strongest side of the technician Jones


StarStarStarStarStar I took my 86 yo mother and the staff was superb! —    (Patient since Fri Jun 14 00:00:00 MDT 2013)

I took my 86 yo mother and the staff couldn't have been more pleasant. The three working the desk (a southern man, the lefty(!) and the red haired woman) all were polite, efficient and personable. The best was Dimitri who was very kind to my mom, explained things, was deferential to her without being stiff and was extremely helpful as she is not mobile and we needed some manpower to get her in and out of the exam chair. Dr Snively opened with a wonderful story of her name (same as my mother's) which broke the ice. We were shown how the last glasses prescription from another company did not take into account my mother's astigmatism proving what my mom felt all along: they just don't work. And the crack in my mother's current eyeglass lenses? It was actually thin monofilament that slipped out of a groove and ran across the face of a lens appearing to be a crack. The optician fixed it for free. We have extreme confidence in the service and professionalism of this office. Would highly recommend to anyone.


StarStarStarStarStar Dr. Snively is the best! —    (Patient since Thu Oct 25 00:00:00 MDT 2007)

Dr. Smithson is knowledgeable and very easy to connect with. He walked me through his insights from the images of my eyes and comparisons to images from prior years, carefully studying the details in a way that gave me great confidence. He offered a personalized set of contact and glasses recommendations and different options that would appeal for cost management, should I be interested. The staff is very pleasant, and the experience was very smooth. I was never left waiting around and was treated very professionally.

I was totally satisfied with my first experience at the Reston office. Dr. Giles did the most extensive exam I have ever had. She was very professional as well as attentive to my concerns. The staff was also very helpful. I wasn't "steered" to frames that usually did not sell good, as I have been at other pratices. I was able to select the pair I wanted without being pushed or rushed. Then, and only then did the staff amke suggestions as to how they looked on me and showed me similiar pairs to compare with. I plan on staying with the Reston office.

This is just a great group and I am sorry I have taken so long to recognize their expertise, friendly quality staff and killer optical shop. I have been a satisfied patient for several years. I am extremely nearsighted and come in annually for a check to be sure my peepers are at their healthiest best. Truly enjoy Dr. Sparreberger who has a great sense of humor but is obviously very qualified and serious about his profession. Have ordered many pairs of glasses through the optics side and appreciate their willingness to work with me and build glasses that are both fun to wear and meet my many sight requirements.

Saw Dr. Kim and was very unimpressed. Felt she was very pushy trying to convince me to change my prescription. I told her I was happy with my eyesight and having no problems whatsoever. It was a routine annual visit. I told her if that was her philosophy to try and change prescriptions each visit she was not going to be a good fit for me. I honestly don't know if I'd come back.

Camy was the consummate professional answering my questions and ensuring my comfort was a priority, while working to ensure the tests were conducted thoroughly and correctly. Dr. Briceno is nothing less than the absolute ideal doctor. Her patient care skills are second to none. Dr. Briceno explained test results in lay terms so that I was thoroughly aware of my vision condition. When additional tests were ordered, she went the extra mile to explain the reason why, and made sure my questions were answered. I will continue to use Northern Virginia Doctors of Optometry as long as vision technicians such as Camy, and Doctors such as Dr. Briceno continue their association with the practice.

Amazingly efficient optometrists. From the moment you walk in the door, they quickly and professionally hand you off from one expert to another to the Doctor, with no down time. In the span of about 30 minutes, I received an eye exam, a contact lens fitting, a new fangled retinal scan of some sort, and even ordered new glasses.

The Plaza America facility is large and the staff is mostly set way back from the entrance. When it's busy it's hard to know where to start. Would you consider a little sign hanging over the long sign in desk by the back wall that says "Check in here first" or something like that?

This is the second time I have experienced less than adequate service from your staff. This time, I had lost complete vision in one eye (ended up seeing ophthalmologist and retinal specialist) and ebony and other staff members would not let me speak to dr sparrenberger or any of the technicians, nor would they book an appointment for me less than two weeks out. I plan to take my business, my daughter, my husband and two friends that I previously referred to this office to see another optometrist. Not worth the headache to deal with your inadequate, off putting staff. I think Dr Sparrenberger is excellent and I hope he receives this information

Setting up the appointment by could be sooo much better. I'm only allowed to indicate that I want to schedule an appointment and wait to be contacted. I ended up calling to set up my appointment. Would be nice if I could indicate times that worked best for me or pick a time from available times online.

The Dr. was great. I have problem with the insurance. Although my insurance said the doctor was in network and a yearly eye exam is covered by my insurance I ended up paying $249 dollars for the exam and contact fitting. I don't understand why my vision insurance with Blue Cross Blue Shield would not apply for this visit. I have been going to this place for five years and really like the staff and Drs. and have recommended the office to friends and family. Now that my insurance is no longer accepted, I will have to change optometrist.

When I got a call to make the appointment, I had to provide all the information i sent online over the phone again. It was a waste of my time. Once I provided it, there was no appointment for 3 weeks. I told them it would have been nice to know they couldn't see me sooner as my eyes have been blurry. She worked to bump it up sooner, which I appreciated. When I walked in for my appointment, the receptionist said to wait. I stood for 5 minutes before she then tended to someone else first. I sat down and someone called me 5 minutes later. Would appreciate a final close out with the doctor to review prescription -- felt rushed to be handed off to pick out glasses with no formal recap of recommendations.

Also, they treated me with their respect as human being alike everyone as diversity, not treat me different because of my Deaf with ASL.

Horrendous service! Our family members have consulted at various times with Dr Snively, Smithson, Giles, and Briceno. They're all very nice. The front line personel, except for the black man, is pitiful. The old white lady is rude and doesn't give a hoot about customers. The Indian girl is not friendly and takes it upon herself to make charges without explanation to the customer. The reception desk can't seem to know what they're doing. It took them 1/2 hour to cancel unapproved charges and settled my bill. This is not the first time that we have witnessed this.

Dr. Giles is excellent, she is not only very skilled and knowledgable, but also very concerned about the patient. Take my case for example, due to my condition of a present mild infection and dryness of the eyes, she suggest it might not be the correct lens prescription from this exam, and asked me to come back after two weeks after these conditions are gone. She is trying to make sure the results are without doubts according to her best knowledge, and not being bothered by the cost of her time. That's what makes a good doctor.

every time I come in for an appointment, the Dr's are running late and I am told this. If this is an ongoing issue, maybe schedule more time for each patient/Dr visit. This is frustrating when you make a point to arrive on time or a little early for paperwork to find out you still have to wait due the dr running behind.

It was sort of a "meh" experience. The front office staff all seem sort of cranky, and the upsell for a 3D eyeball scan came on quite strong. $170 for just some plastic glasses seems crazy, too. I *have* insurance. Gah. Probably should have shopped around more.

I did not understand specifically what I was being charged for. The invoice had two exams-I paid $10 of the $160 for the first one and the entire amount on the second one. I asked the person at check out to explain the two exams and why I was being charged for the second one and the only answer I received was "That's what your benefit covers". I do not recall paying for two separate exams in the past-I would like further clarification on this.

The Dr. was an hour late. The Technician told me she was "running 20 minutes behind", but I wasn't shown to the Dr until 55 minutes after my scheduled visit. Upon meeting with the Dr. she failed to even acknowledge the fact that she was running behind until the end of the visit when I asked her about the delay, to which she appeared to have no idea of even how far behind schedule she was. If it was an option, I would give zero stars. I will likely not be returning to this practice.

It would be nice if they gave some discounts on contacts I bought; especially since my Eye insurance only able to use once. If I actually go to the Marrieta website it seems to be cheaper to order from them. I was a little upset when the company that I got my contacts originally from lost my records so the staff at northern doctors of optometry did not know what contact to order and then my order was put in later.

StarStarStarStarNo Star Front Desk Confusion —    (Patient since Fri Mar 20 00:00:00 MDT 2009)

The fellow who was at the front desk did not seem to know understand that my daughter was in because of an emergency-she had a foreign body in her eye. He told us to wait and he would fit us in. One of the patients waiting said my daughter could take her place because it seemed more important. Was awkward, but I assumed that an emergency would take precedence over a scheduled appointment ~ most people understand this. Just don't know if this is your policy or not.

The staff seemed very unsure of my benefits and it took much longer than I would've liked checking out as a result. I also wanted contact lenses, but because they were not clear on my insurance I had to leave without them. I still have to call back when I have time to get further information and see if I can add the lenses to my order. Otherwise my visit with the doctor and the service while choosing my new frames was excellent.

I showed them the text that I send and they realized their system messed up. So I had to wait an extra 20 min to be squeezed in-between appts. Other than that, the staff and doctor were wonderful.

The Optical team member that we dealt was not able to provide the necessary information that we were requesting. She seems to be not interested at all in helping us and was in her own world. She just scribbled some numbers and asked us payment without explanation. I had to literally ask her 3 times to get her attention for payment. She also charged with unnecessary charges without even having basic knowledge of checking with insurance. We had to explain to her that it was covered by our insurance.

Please tone down your reminder 'bot. Multiple, simultaneous reminders via SMS and email a week ahead and a day ahead is abusive. I'd suggest doing a 1-week-advance email only. Then if the customer hits the OK button, don't send any more reminders. If no response by the customer, you might send one and only one SMS message, maybe at three days. Any further response should be from a human being, or else just stop.
