  • "The absolute best experience I have had at an eye doctor. I had gone to another local Dr. and after multiple visits I was told I could not have contacts. After one visit at McHenry Optical, Dr. Sadofsky was able to find out my exact prescription and fit. For years I had been using a prescription that was too strong for my eye, Dr. Sadofsky discovered it and now I have 20/15 vision!"

  • "Very nice and supportive people. Repair of my broken glasses under warranty has been effortless."
