This is a great place to go for glasses and many optical needs. Joyce is the reason I started going to this locale, a colleague’s glasses were so awesome and she shared that her secret was Joyce. Even though it is really outside of my normal area and they don’t have weekend or later than typical business hours (which can be tough at times) I had to give it a try and more than ten years later here I still am going there. Joyce helps me greatly find glasses that I always get compliments on, that fit my small bridge and personality. I have a hard time deciding these things and with Joyce it is a breeze because I trust her opinion very much and she is truly gifted at finding the right frames for your face shape.
Dr. Cassis has been a great benefit to this location. She believes so much in what she does and really cares about helping people. Because this is her company, she can do so much more that will benefit you, than a Dr. at a big company and she has a lot of attention to detail. I have been timid to try new things that I need to do Vision-wise as my eyesight changes and she has given me the latitude to give it a try and to change it if I don’t like it. She has really boosted the technology and they have tests that I never knew existed and has opened a dry eye clinic. I suffer from chronic chalazion and had been only managing outbreaks with Opthamologists.
Dr. Cassis has been helping me in a new more wholistic approach to fixing the problem and keeping it controlled with methods that work for dry eye patients as well. It’s a rare problem and it was so serendipitous that I could get relief and become more on the offensive side, from a place I was already going to. This could be an even longer review, telling how this company is different and better than any other place I have been for these services for many reasons. However to put it plainly, from a person who has used many services from here and been to many different places in my past for eye needs, and who admittedly is not the easiest person to please, I highly recommend this company and you will not be disappointed if you give them a try!
I have been a patient of Dr. Nathalie Cassis for two years. I cannot speak highly enough of her and her team.
I moved to the Norfolk area two years ago. My worst nightmare is always finding a new eye doctor. I have Keratoconus, an eye disorder that thins and reshapes the cornea. My condition is treatable, but requires the help of an eye care professional who is exceptionally knowledgeable about the condition AND fitting Scleral lenses. My personal experience is most eye doctors do not have the skill level necessary to truly help their Keratoconus patients. Because of the odd shape of the cornea, fitting the lenses can be frustrating and time consuming for the patient and a true challenge for the doctor. Finding a personable, caring, committed, and knowledge optometrist, who is willing to invest the time necessary to ensure clear and comfortable vision, is near impossible. I can’t believe how lucky I was to find Dr. Nathalie. She immediately understood my special needs, used state of the art equipment to assess and map my eyes and have custom lenses crafted. My vision is now 20/20 (for the first time in years). My lenses are comfortable and I am confident Dr. Nathalie will continue to provide excellent guidance and help me protect my eye’s health.
I strongly recommend Dr. Nathalie to any individual; from a standard exam to more complex eye medical issues. You will not be disappointment. Her staff is warm, friendly, and accommodating. Dr. Nathalie is a true professional with an equally charming personality. Do yourself (and your eyes a favor) and visit Envision Ghent Optometry and Dr. Nathalie Cassis.
