My wife and I have been hooked on “Modern Eyewear” since 1994. They are total professional and are very customer oriented. We both have purchased a number of frames there over the years and have enjoyed a level of superior friendly service that you rarely experience anywhere these days. The owners display a personal type of service that keeps you coming back. — William K., Mission Viejo
Most optometry appointments throughout my life have been fairly similar across the board. Never a terrible experience, but also never something to write home about. With that said, I have always just gone to the the closest convenient eye doctor with no loyalty to any particular office…until now! Everything about Modern Eyewear Optometry is awesome… — Lance J
Other optometrists couldn’t get my vision quite clear because of my astigmatism. Dr Dominguez had no issues in getting it right. Great experience in the office as well. I highly recommend Modern Eyewear. — Larry B
I LOVE new glasses !! Nothing helps switch things up like a new pair of glasses.. Modern Eyewear is one of the best. — Andrew B., Los Angeles
Excellent service by the doctor and staff! Immaculate office and so technologically advanced. I was in great hands. Dr. Dominquez was VERY thorough and kind. I look forward to seeing him every year!
Very happy with the service and quick turn around on my glasses. The customer experience was second to none. The pricing for my frames was lower than what I have seen at other eye wear stores, and with the personal help I received…this will be my main place for my families eye wear needs. Modern Eyewear exceeded my expectations. – Matt H., Rancho Santa Margarita
I recommend Modern Eyewear Optometry for all your eye needs. I am so happy with their services that I travel over 75 miles one way from Northridge for my appointment. They are very courteous and knowledgeable in their business. I have been seeing them since the opening of their offices in Lake Forest. — Antranik K
Love this place! If you need glasses, you’ve got to come here and give them try. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. They go over and above what most optometry places go. Prices were great, although I’m not a shopper and couldn’t honestly tell you if they are cheaper or not, but to me, the friendliness and attitude of everyone here will keep you coming back. — Mark T
I have been to many eye-care clinics, but I have to say that Modern In lake forest is the best by far – from Mission Viejo to LA this is the best Clinic. Dr. Dominguez interacts great in a professional and friendly manner. He was able to access the reason why my previous eye Dr. Had left me with a bad close up view. Dr. Dominguez was thorough with the Exam, using the latest equipment. I work in the Medical field, and I know great service when I experience it at Modern. I will Tell my friends about the great service. Thank You. — Carlos C
I had a great time ordering my sunglasses. The selection was extensive and the service was phenominal at Modern Eyewear. I really can not say enough about the customer service. I am extremely happy with my experience here and I will be returning in the future. — R.M., Irvine
I cannot say enough great things about my experience with Modern Eyewear. I came in pretty frazzled with my experience at Sears and Lenscrafters, with sales people that tell you everything looks good and a selection and prices I was less then pleased with… Prices are very reasonable, and she didn’t try to up-sell me on things I didn’t need – overall superb customer service. — Jami C., Foothill Ranch
Doctor Cheryl was amazing. I love that she actually took the time to explain everything and even explained the photos of what was behind the eye and what she was looking at. I love the detailed explanation. I learned a lot from her. The office is super clean and extremely modern. — Brian G
I’ve suffered from Dry Eye for years and no one ever took the time to address it as well as Dr. Dominguez. His treatment was simple, specific to me, and worked amazingly well. I now feel and see so much better! I was even able to wear contacts on my wedding day! I highly recommend Dr. Dominguez to anyone suffering from dry eye, or feels they do not receive a personalized treatment with their current optometrist. — James E
The best optometry I’ve ever been. Trust me on this. I’ve been gone thru online stores and other eye centers, and this is far the BEST one ever. I already got two pairs: one for regular glasses, another one for sunglasses. Doctor is very kind and detailed in explaining my eye conditions. I strongly recommend this place!! — David S
Fantastic service! Dr Dominguez and his staff live up to their motto of everyone is family. The equipment used is all state of the art. No more air puff machine, the Dr used a new technology that’s much more accurate. My last dr had to do the puff machine multiple times to get a consistent and accurate reading. The staff spent a ton of time going over frame options. GREAT experience! — Chuck G
Caring, personable, friendly, helpful, and most of all doctor covered all the bases to insure me that my eyes are in good health. I am impressed at all the new techniques and technologies they use. — Diane S
Everyday I drive past Modern Eyewear home from work. But it was until, I saw the rave reviews on here that I decided to stop by and purchase some eyeglasses. I’ve been to many different optical stores in search for the right frames for my face type. The moment I stop by into Modern Eyewear, the whole staff was quick to help me find the perfect frames. They quickly picked out 3 frames for me that were perfect for me. — Johnnie G., Trabuco Canyon
I went in to get my eyeglasses repaired which I had purchased over a year and a half ago in NYC. The entire staff was amazingly helpful – they called the manufacturer immediately to determine how long it would take to repair the glasses…walking me through the whole process. In the meantime, they were able to fix my current frames so that they could be used temporarily free of charge. — Dileepan S., Cambridge, MA
Great experience here. Staff is very friendly and helpful, and facilities are clean and modern. Doctors are also very friendly and knowledgeable. Other optometry places in the Lake Forest/Irvine area really pale in comparison to the service at Modern Eyewear. — Julie C
Once again, my eye appointment was smooth and prompt. The doctors are very professional and knowledgeable, not to mention friendly. The staff are also very courteous and helpful. Lastly, the equipment is all up to date, and the office itself is very clean, open and comfortable. — Donald B
I generally don’t give ANYTHING five stars but this place is FANTASTIC!!!!! Dr. D is nice and Dr. Alderson is A-Mazing!!! In my 35 years Dr. Alderson has been the only one to diagnose my eye situation and actually show me a picture of what I’ve been dealing with for so long. Rather than off-the-shelf “hope they work” contacts Dr. A did the research to find a pair of contacts (soft lenses) that could be custom made for my random eye needs… — Marcielle G
…I called around the usual places like Lens Crafters, JCPenny, and even a few local optometrists. Because of my horrible eyesight, I was quoted really high and without a quick turnaround… Then I walked in to Modern Eyewear. The owner was very helpful and nice. She wasn’t trying to push the frames in the store, instead she was ok with me bringing in my own frames and even complimented how cute they were. — Alice R., Foothill Ranch
Modern Eyewear is new to me, and I had a great experience. It was convenient to my work, so after reading some reviews online, I decided to book an appointment. I was glad I did – the staff were all very helpful, and Dr. Dominguez was very friendly, professional and efficient. I would definitely recommend this place to others, and if you just need some new frames, Leah is a great help for that too! — Brian H
I have been working next to Modern Eyewear for almost 10 years and I have bought almost a dozen pairs of glasses thru them. They has the best customer service very fast, very friendly and most of all great prices! Anytime I have a question need a repair or just want to see whats new they are always there and greet me with a smile. – Clint L., El Toro
Dr. Dominguez and his staff are all equally knowledgeable, professional and sincere. Our entire experience was relaxed and – oddly enough – enjoyable. When was the last time you had an exam that you enjoyed? Can’t recommend them enough! — Melinda M.
I highly recommend this place!! My doctor was awesome at explaining everything and making me feel really comfortable. The staff even offered to watch my 11 month old baby boy while I took my eye exam!!! Thanks again ladies 🙂 — Katherine A.
Excellent as always! Everyone in the office is very friendly and even willing to make same day appointments. Both doctors are amazing. I’m so glad I found them. Last year I was having issues with my contacts and dry eye. Dr. D was extremely patient with me and determined to find a solution. This year I saw Dr. A for my yearly check up and she was helpful and knowledgeable too. Thank you! – Tamara G
The doctors here are amazing! I love that they take the time to explain things to their patients. The office is extremely clean and spacious. I’ll be going back to this place for sure.
After many years of wearing glasses, hard contacts, soft contacts and then having cataract surgery, I was reluctant to try anyone new. Dr. Dominguez was recommended by a friend that I trust, so I went for a visit and am so glad I did. This doctor is amazing. He was kind, patient, explained everything, has super equipment, and took a long time to be sure every question I had was answered. His knowledge is incredible. I’m so glad I went to him and know I’ve found a very special doctor. — Connie V
Great experience at Modern Eyewear. This is my second visit. The service is excellent and timely. Leah is a master at frame selection and fit. I would recommend this business in a heartbeat. — Doris L
