Very caring


Decided to book an appointment here as it was the closest optometrist to my workplace. I had a very thorough eye exam and did not get a hard sell for glasses. The front office staff were friendly and based on interactions with other patients very caring. Would recommend to anyone.

Warm, helpful, professional and thorough


Warm, helpful, professional, and thorough. I cannot recommend Gramercy Park Optical highly enough. This was my first visit as a new patient. The staff behind the desk were knowledgeable and attentive. I saw the doctor with hardly any waiting. Dr. Miro was amazing. He really cares about vision health and pays individual attention to each patient. I was in and out in under 40 minutes despite some complications with insurance. Do yourself a favor and visit!

Big thanks to the staff at Gramercy Park Optical!


Big thanks to the staff at Gramercy Park Optical! I was in town on a weekend trip and my only contacts ripped. They were willing to work with me, fax my optometrist back in Cleveland, and help me get replacement contacts all in about 15 minutes. If that's the service they offer for someone they just met, I'm sure they are fantastic for anyone with an actual appointment! Thank you again!

I couldn’t have hoped for a better visit


What a marvelous office! The optometrist I saw, Dr. Miro, performed my eye exam with grace and skill, astutely identifying that I had been slightly misdiagnosed in the past. He also recommended a new contact-lens brand, which I am enjoying better than I have any other lens before. The staff was equally delightful--friendly, professional, knowledgeable. They even made the loathsome task of navigating insurance a breeze! I couldn't have hoped for a better visit, and never will I go to any other optometrist in NYC.

The staff here is absolutely excellent


The staff here is absolutely excellent. Jasmine was particularly beyond helpful when I had an issue with my insurance provider. She was patient and understanding, as well as determined to resolve the issue. So happy I came here and will definitely be back for any of my optical needs!
