Dr. Lai and team are excellent! They care about their customers and provide stellar care and service. I travel from Arizona for my appointments because of the staff and Dr. Lai.

I highly recommend Eyeworks of San Mateo.

I've used 4 different opticians/optometrists over the last 15 years, primarily due to location, as my job has dictation locations of convenience, but I will come to Eyeworks of San Mateo even if it means having to commute an hour! Their staff is extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and extremely professional! Top kudos to Dr. Theresa Wu who takes incredible care of me and my wife!

I saw Dr. Wu yesterday for the first time and she was warm, attentive, and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions fully and provided her professional reccommendations without bias.

Sebrina was great! She ordered the purple frames I was considering to try on in person. I was unsure because the metal looked quite bright on the website. They turned out to be perfect! Very subtle. I live in the Eastbay and always make the trip to Eyeworks for my frames. They have the best frame selection and Sebrina is always a pleasure to work with!

My experience at Eyeworks is always excellent. They're always running on time when I'm there, and the staff is friendly and helpful. At my last visit, Eddy went above and beyond with helping to sort out an issue with my VSP coverage. I really appreciate the initiative he took to communicate with VSP on my behalf. Additionally, my appointment with Dr. Lai is always efficient yet thorough. All around, a great experience.

I called with a problem tooth and they got me in within 2 hours. The staff was super friendly and Dr. Shigihara completely understood my unnatural fear of Dentists. He made me feel at ease and talked me through all of my issues. I thought I had a cracked tooth, turns out it was an infection. He prescribed some antibiotics and ibuprofen. I started feeling better within hours. Next day I felt great. I am scheduled to go for a serious cleaning this week and likely I need some teeth pulled so we are just getting started but I feel like I have found "my" Dentist
