June, 2017: "Great service overall. Staff was friendly as soon as I walked through the door. Was seen fast and efficiently. Let me know I had an eye problem that no doctor has mentioned before. Great selection of eyeglasses and at the moment had a great discount. Will recommend to all friends and family. Drove from Pacific beach to get glasses in traffic hour. Definitely worth it." - Karina M.

June, 2017: "Dr. Chinn is fabulous.  He has a great personality and is totally professional at the same time, totally rocks!!"- Elizabeth P.

June, 2017: "I had my first visit with Dr Chinn today. His staff is very nice and efficient. I was seen by the doctor immediately.  Dr Chinn is awesome, very nice, and easy to talk to. He is knowledgeable and genuinely cares. I will proudly be using him as my new optometrist. His staff is very helpful as well when it came to purchasing my glasses, and they had very reasonable prices and options. Definitely deserves a five stars." - Dan A.

May, 2017: "Friendly, professional staff with state-of-the-art equipment. Felt very much at ease and informed every step of the way."- Dinah M.

May, 2017: "The whole team at the office is super professional and helpful and intelligent. I got awesome service and thoughtful medical attention and a rad new pair of glasses! They'll fill out and submit your rebates for contacts and have awesome offers on hip brands. Tiffany and Cindy are especially helpful and lovely to work with, and Dr. Jennifer Chinn is so friendly and thorough (and chic!)! If you love supporting a local, family-owned business that takes care of their patients, this is your spot!" -Jared. H

March, 2017: "This visit exceeded my expectations. I was greeted as soon as I walked through the door and the experience just kept getting better after that. This was my first visit here and I had a tiny bit of paperwork to fill out (that could also be filled out ahead of time online but I didn't do that). I was seen immediately after I filled out the paperwork I was taken to the back for my eye exam. Updated equipment made this a very efficient process. What stood out the most was the customer service and how informative EVERYONE was. The staff is very friendly and went out of the way to really educate me on ways to maintain healthy vision for the long run. I have had glasses in the past from a different doctor's office and that experience was nowhere near as great as this. As a matter-of-fact, had I come to this location for my first set of glasses, I would've learned a lot more about eye care and how to adjust to glasses. Now I can really make the most out of my new glasses since someone took the time to give me tips and pointers that are custom to my lifestyle needs. This is a family run establishment and they definitely have an amazing balance of expertise from vision, customer service, style and everything in between. If you are looking to purchase glasses, they have a selection on display and really take the time to help you find the ones best for you. They also have a good special as well as affordable options based on your exact needs. I've already recommended some folks in my network to check them out and highly recommend anyone reading this to check out Dr. Chinn's location. Thanks so much for a great experience. This time around I am actually excited about wearing glasses." -Jennifer M.

December, 2016: "I've been going to see Dr Chinn for a few years now. Both Dr. Chinn and his staff are professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I used to jump around with eye doctors, but I'm staying out here." - Jill R.

November, 2016: "Dr. Chinn and his office manager are very friendly. There was no wait and I was able to take care of my appointment and get back to work for a meeting due to their efficiency. I would highly recommend Dr. Chinn to anybody who needs an eye exam! #GoBears" - Nicholas S.

October, 2016: "I thought Dr. Chinn and his staff were both extremely, professional, courteous, and welcoming. They explained each step of the exam and made sure I understood what was going to take-place/what my options were." - Michael M.

September, 2016: "I recently got glasses from Dr Chinn's optometry.  I just wanted to say it was the most positive experience I've ever had at an optometrist! And I've worn glasses my whole life!
His staff is extremely friendly and helpful.  They were quick, efficient, and honest.  No extra costs or mark ups thrown in either!
From my experience, some glasses places will try to rip you off.
Not this one!
In fact, they even take medi-cal! Despite that though they have the latest in optometric technology! For just 30 extra dollars I opted for their 3D eye scan machine. No dilation necessary. They also have a machine that tests your peripheral vision and the one that measures your new persciption is also mostly automated!
Now I have new, very flattering, AFFORDABLE  glasses and I can see a lot better! Will totally go again in  a few years. Best optometrist I've ever been to." -Erica B.

It was simple to be prepared to see the doctor and they called my insurance and let me know my coverage well I saw the doctor. The office is spotless and they have the most up-to-date technology at their disposal. Dr. Chinn is very professional. It is obvious that he has been a doctor of Optometry for several years. He's also very funny and very nice. He knows how to use all the great technology he has throughout his office. It's easy to tell that you're in good hands. I can't believe it's taking me this long to find such a fantastic practice. I wish he was my MD!" - Alex M.

April, 2016: "Everything was quick, easy & professional. I also liked the text reminders & the ability to fill out forms online before my visit. They seem to have the newest technology & made my visit very informative & comfortable." - Samantha B.

April, 2016: "Staff were SUPER cool and accommodating. Dr. Took extra time to re and double/triple check my eyes as I'm probably about 90% blind in my right eye. Dr. is genuine , gentle, kind hearted and the type of doc you hope to see when you go for any visit- anywhere!" - Sarah C.

November, 2015: "My visit with Stephen Chinn was awesome. The staff was courteous and helpful and Mr. Chinn was extremely knowledgeable.

July, 2015: "Dr. Chinn is AWESOME! Delightful conversation with some good laughs. He and his staff made me feel comfortable. Explained every procedure and wasn't there to "make a sale". They educate you and allow you to make educated decisions. Very nice!" - Jocorro S.

June, 2015: "I had a great visit with Dr. Chinn. Both he and his staff were super friendly and welcoming. I didn't wait long at all - maybe 10 minutes at most. The technology they use is very modern. I felt very confident I was getting high quality care. I definitely plan on sticking with Dr. Chinn as my go-to OD." - Amanda G.

March, 2015: "Being new in town, I was hesitant to choose a doctor based solely on online reviews, but experience was great. The assistants were welcoming and so was Dr Chinn. He was thorough and answered my questions. It was helpful they take appointments past 5pm and using the ZocDoc it makes the visit pretty quick. They even took their own time to submit my rebate." - Anonymous

Testimonial

"Awesome place for all your eyeglass needs! The staff is very professional, friendly and efficient!  Dr. Chinn is very knowledgeable and attentive. The shop is clean, organized and located in a very trendy, cool neighborhood.  Got my glasses just the way I ordered them, and the girls really help in explaining and helping out to find the perfect pair, fashion-wise as well as going over different features/lenses/etc. They were also very helpful to my parents who went on a separate occasion. They raved on how understanding and patient the girls were in helping them with their needs. Would definitely recommend them."
