I love the receptionists and the doctor! I was in so much pain a few months ago from over wearing my contacts and they fit me right in after I strolled in from work. The doctor taught me a lot about my eyes and made recommendations on how to avoid having a similar issue in the future. I also bought beautiful glasses which I promptly broke but they immediately fixed and sent to me. Other reviews seem to say they're not the cheapest but honestly you only get one Set of eyes so if you really want top level care and products I would recommend them.

As a physician myself, I can attest to the fact that Dr. Philips is a seasoned doctor of optometry with decades of experience and vast knowledge. He did one of the best and more comprehensive eye exams I ever experienced, and shared a lot of his vast knowledge with us. The staff is friendly and professional, and willingly/happily consults on the many options for eye and sun glasses. I highly recommend this practice for people looking for top eye care coupled with superior high end equipment.

Dr. Phillips is intelligent, competent, friendly and patient. He always takes his time to say "hello" before the exam starts. I really appreciate his personal style and professional manner. His explanations of the tests and the results are always clear and cogent. The staff is also very friendly and courteous. I recommend, without reservation, going to Brattle Square Optical.

The staff were professional + took Covid safety seriously (all masked at all times, no nonsense). They’re appointment only and things seemed very clean. The Dr was really great - he’s smart, no BS, and gave me the right prescription after the last place I went gave me the wrong one twice. Couldn’t recommend higher.

Highly recommend! Excellent customer service; professional and friendly. Dr. Phillips was thorough with the exam and was great at explaining the anatomy of the eye.

The customer service at this place is phenomenal. As soon as I walked in, Patrick at the front desk offered me free glasses wipes to clean the raindrops off my glasses while I waited for my appointment. The exam was thorough and Dr. Phillips even took extra time to explain to me my options and let me test out a pair of contact lenses to see how they would feel. After the exam, I spent about two hours there trying on a million different pairs of awesome glasses (they have an AMAZING selection!) and was helped by pretty much all 3 employees and the Dr. in narrowing down the pairs I liked and weighing out my options. The two woman who worked there were incredibly kind and helpful, while also being incredibly honest about which pairs did and did not fit my face well (I really appreciated the honesty!). After what felt like forever, I eventually narrowed it down to 4 of my favorite pairs. One pair was a pair of black frames that I was hoping to try on in a clear color, but they did not have them in stock at the time. They were so kind and immediately ordered them so I would be able to come back and try them in person next week. Their customer service was truly amazing, and I would highly recommend this shop for anyone in need of a new pair of glasses or an updated eye exam. Since I wanted to wait to try on the other pair, I left without purchasing glasses, but they were kind enough to set aside my favorite 4 pairs for when I would return. On my way home that day, I decided to swing by Warby Parker while I waited for the bus and tried on a pair in there as well. Afterwards, I posted a collage of all 5 pairs to facebook (without listing any prices or brand names in the photos) and asked all of my friends to vote to help me pick my favorites. I was incredibly SHOCKED that the random pair from Warby Parker received 72 out of the 93 votes I received. As much as I absolutely loved all the pairs I tried on at Brattle Square - I had to listen to the people and ended up buying the pair from Warby Parker. In the long run, it worked out, since my insurance would almost completely cover them, but I still love all the pairs I tried on there and I will certainly be back again if I end up needing to spend some extra FSA money at the end of the year. I truly cannot thank everyone there enough for how kind and helpful their service was! They went above and beyond to help me out and I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!

This was the first time I went to the eye doctor and came away feeling less stressed than when I walked in. The staff was friendly and accommodating and I was seen right away at the time of my appointment. The doctor there was really great and cared to explain to me each step of what he was doing and what he was looking for. I came away feeling like I actually learned something about eyes and vision health--you can tell he is very passionate about his work! I would recommend Brattle Square Optical to anyone looking for a great experience with their eye doctor.

I've been for multiple years at this point and gotten new glasses, frames, and sunglasses. The eye doctor is absolutely fantastic and super efficient. I think the whole eye exam (plus the cool retinal scan instead of using eye drops, which is the best) only took 20 or so minutes. Afterwards, I was helped to pick out new frames and the suggestions were absolutely fantastic. I trust the staff's judgment completely! Every person in the office is very nice and I will continue coming here as long as I live in the area.
