No help what so ever with frames! None! and they knew I was looking for a pair. It's almost like they didn't want to sell me glasses.

The care you get at McDonald Optical is personal and thorough. I know I can trust them to take care of me and my family's eye care needs.

Thuy is an excellent sales associate. She presented me with many choices and I will enjoy the frames I selected.

I went in because of eye pain. Dr Nickle thoroughly examined my eye and diagnosed a scratched cornea. She prescribed oner the counter eye drops and I was on my way. It's healing nicely.

Best thing is your personnel. Dr. Nickel (optometrist) is superior in all respects and so were the others who assisted me at the Sycamore location. I usually deal with the Clinton St. shop but this time I needed to see Dr. Nickle and she was practicing at Sycamore that day. The people downtown have always been exceptional but it was good to know that the folks at your other shops are equally helpful, caring and knowledgeable.

I've been purchasing my eyeglasses from McDonald Optical for nearly 2 decades and have always been satisfied with the product and service. For the first time I am taking advantage of the replacement of lenses under warranty. The associates were very helpful in explaining the products and services to me. My most comfortable glasses have come from McDonald and they are the only ones to carry the Swiss Flex in the area. Many thanks.

I met Dr Matt Houck for the first time and he was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He explained my issue very thoroughly and made it easy for me to understand which I really appreciated.

I'm really happy with my haircut from Groovy Katz. It's an inviting atmosphere, and my stylist was professional and talkative, which I enjoy. However, I was charged $10 for her to use product to style my hair once she was done without being informed of the charge beforehand. Their website states that cuts are $35, and my bill was around $48 with tax. She did ask if I minded if she styled my hair, and since that's usually included in the cost of the cut I said yes. She never mentioned a charge for this at all, and I feel like it's a little underhanded. However, I do really like my cut and will probably go back, but I won't have them style it again. Which is inconvenient if I have anywhere to go afterwards since I'll have to go home first to style it.

I enjoyed my maternity massage. It was just what I wanted. The maternity pillow was divine- I could lay on my stomach!!! I would have just been happy laying that way and taking a nap. My only complaint is that I am 30 weeks pregnant and when turned from my stomach to my back there was very little support (tilt) for my back on the table. It is difficult to be this pregnant and lay flat on your back. The massage therapist was very professional, and provided a relaxing environment with little to no small talk (which is what I wanted/needed). I would come back but would need the extra support as my belly gets bigger.
