What are people saying about OmniVision Eye Associates, Dr. Louis Hochberg, the Eye Exams and Eyewear at their Hamden, Connecticut eye care clinic?


I found doctor Hochberg by searching within my insurance network and I picked it randomly and I'm so glad I did. Dr. Hochberg is very kind, knowledgeable and professional. The staff is all helpful and nice. They have a wide selection of glasses I love.  The office is clean and tidy and they call me for my appointment promptly. I don't mind going to the eye doctor because its simple and quick. I filled out all my medical history online which was very simple and self explanatory. I am a new customer as of last year but I will continue to go to Omnivision.

I just wrote a review about my unfortunate experience at a plastic surgeons office/laser center in Fairfield and how unfriendly the staff and Doctor were. I wrote that even my Optometrist says hello to his customers when he walks by the waiting area. So, I thought I should give Omni Vision the wonderful review that it deserves.Dr. Hochberg is The nicest man and the staff is so friendly and Nina is THE BEST! She always makes myself and my children feel at ease and she has a wonderful sense of humor (My children are 18 and 20)Each of us just bought a new pair of glasses that Nina helped us pick out. I bought a Tiffany fame and my kids each picked out a Ray Ban frame. The selection is really nice and my glasses are so beautiful.This place deserves 10 stars. The staff is professional, friendly and worth every penny!If only other businesses were as friendly and kind, they might just make more money.....Isn't that just common sense?BTW, my Initials were changed to protect my identity.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Hochberg for many years. His staff has always been very friendly, helpful and courteous. The office is beautiful and conveniently located with plenty of parking. Dr. Hochberg explains everything thoroughly and never seems in a rush. Nina is wonderful! She will help you find the glasses that suit you best and if you have to return to have them adjusted, never a problem!

- Katrien D. NY

I have been a patient of Dr. Hochberg for the past 13 years. I get the best eye care!  I highly recommend this office.

- Molly S. Bridgeport CT

OmniVision is a fantastic place for eye care. Each staff member is friendly, and prompt. Each time you walk in you feel like family. Dr. Hochberg really takes the times to really get a closer look of your eyes, he explains everything he is doing and is always positive. Nina and Amanda are also a big part of the practice. Each of them which I always have contact with are always happy to see you and always looking for a way to help you. I recommend OmniVision to everyone, I have been going there my entire life, I enjoy going here and will continue going.

Dr. Hochberg & his staff are amazing. A very friendly and clean environment! The wait time is amazing! I go there for my glasses and contacts. I was told my contacts would come back in about 4 to 5 days they were back the NEXT DAY! (I couldn't even believe it). They are very personable and caring. This was my first visit with Omnivision, whom my cousin recommended! They are FABULOUS! Dr. Hochberg is FRIENDLY and AMAZING! He knows his STUFF! They even kept me on the call back list (as I requested) and called me every time they had a cancellation so my appointment could be moved up. The Front desk staff is friendly! The office was VERY clean! My son enjoyed the little play section that kept him VERY quiet! Dr. Hochberg's assistant (I forgot her name) was VERY NICE. Nina who helped me with my glasses was KNOWLEDGEABLE and VERY NICE! My family will be long time customers there now! If you are looking for a great eye doctor, look no further, OMNIvision is the PLACE to go

- Tiffany D. New Haven CT

I choose OmniVision for my medical eye care and my eyewear.  The staff completes all of the insurance paperwork and provides immediate information.  The equipment in the clean and friendly office is state of the art.  The office accepts used eyewear for donation to the local Lion's Club for donating eyewear to those in need.  I feel confident in Dr. Hochberg to manage my eye health and provide compassionate care, honest and expert Medical Opinion.  Frame options for price and style are Excellent.  Frame prices as low as $29-for a stylish and modern frame!  The opticians who assist Dr. Hochberg are patient and supportive.  OmniVision is a rare and valued option in today's optical market!

- Heather S, Hamden CT

Very friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable staff committed to excellent service.  Dr. Hochberg is a wonderful clinician who puts his patients first.  He was the only one who found the problem with my glasses and was able to fix it.  I will never go anywhere else.  A big thank you to Nina for always having my best interests in mind. Thank you all, keep up the excellent work...

- Joseph T. Seymour CT

Dr, Hochberg is terrific--very clear, knowledgeable and caring. I always feel like I'm in perfect hands with him. And the office staff are fantastic--so friendly, upbeat, efficient and kind. I'm tempted to come into the office even if I don't have an appointment, just to soak up the positive atmosphere they create & the whole spirit of the place. One of the team helped me pick out the best pair of glasses I've ever had. Plus: free coffee, water, and Jolly Ranchers. First rate in every way.

- Mark W. Hamden CT

The best experience I've ever had at the eye doctor.  The staff is friendly and warm and Dr. Hochberg is welcoming and professional.  I was made to feel that my patronage was sincerely appreciated.  There was no wait for my appointment and I was in and out remarkably quickly.  I will never, however, enjoy getting my pupils dilated 😛 !   I will be coming back with my wife and 3 kids!

- Mitch F. Cheshire CT

Dr. Hochberg is nice and professional. Plus the office is very clean and the staff is nice too! I highly recommend Omnivision Eye Associates!

- Jamila M. Hamden CT

This staff and eye doctor is all about the patient. They were all kind, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.  They all worked together to find me exactly what I wanted and make the eye exam a great experience.  Dr. Hochberg was great, and explained some options to help the strain my eye's were having using the computer all day. I am a very satisfied customer and highly recommend OmniVision!

- Joshua C. North Haven CT

Clean, helpful, professional!

- Thien L. Hamden CT

We have been coming for the last 6 years, seeing same fine doctor (Dr. Hochberg) and front receptionist are equally nice and helpful and knowledgeable with all kind insurances benefits. recommending it to everyone around the area or outside the network plan.recently, last visit he had refused to stop working even with his leg conditions fractured in different places.

- Tata B. North Haven CT

Great and excellent customer service.  I highly recommend Omnivision.  They have a great variety of frames to choose from.  The clinic is very clean and well-decorated.  Friendly staff.

- Zerline E. New Haven CT.

I had a wonderful expeience with my frame selection....Nina was awesome! I came in initially just browsing, just to check out their selection,( which I might add is plentiful). The frames were beautifully displayed. Nina told me to take my time browsing the frames, and she also selected quite a few for me as well...we sat down at their "frame camera" and took photos of each frame on my face! It was great. I didn't buy anything that night, but I ended up going back because I was so impressed with my overall experience.Many thanks to Nina for helping me select the perfect frame! I couln't be happier.It's also the first pair of glasses that people have actually commented on and noticed! Thanks again.Must go!I would recommend it 100%.

- L.A Hamden Ct

I recently had an eye appointment where I also was going to have to buy glasses. I arrived right on time and about 5 minutes later called back for the pre-exam. After that it was only about another 5 when Dr. Hochberg came in for the exam. He is very knowledgeable and really seems to care about the patient. When the exam was done and it was time to pick out glasses, Nina was great! She remembered me from the last appointment a year ago and was extremely helpful when it came to picking out frames. My husband just made an appointment there because he really enjoyed how friendly and clean the environment was.

- Emmy C. Hamden CT

After moving to Connecticut from Chicago, I was in need of a new eye place and glasses. After reading all of the wonderful reviews I decided to go to Omnivision. Overall, great experience. It was easy to schedule, conveniently located, easy to park, clean, a thorough and professional exam, great glasses selection, and the staff is friendly.

The office manager, Nina, is incredibly personable, kind, knowledgeable, and hard working. I was very impressed by her ability to remember mine and my husbands names after only meeting us once, and so many of her other patients/customers as well!

I also witnessed her do a very sweet act of kindness for a patient struggling with a personal issue. She multi tasks and works diligently creating a very efficient and trustworthy establishment. She is very keen on what type of glasses fit certain facial features and frames, and honest in her opinions. It's no wonder I noticed patients coming in and asking for her assistance.

It was very difficult for me to finalize my decision on a pair of glasses and she went over the top to help me throughout the process. I also have to acknowledge Abigail and also the newest team member, Allison, for also being so kind, patient, and working with me throughout the adjustment of my glasses. I would highly recommend.

- Robin D. Hamden CT

Thorough eye exam. Patient and friendly sales associates to help with frame and lens selection. Great quality glasses and staff.

- Andrew R. Hamden CT

Our whole family comes here. The communication, care, quality, and outcomes from the Doctor and the staff at OmniVision Eye Associates in Hamden sets the standard for medical professionals.

- Paul M. Sr. Hamden CT

Newer to the area and needed to get some new glasses. The office is nice and neat. I didn't have to wait long in the waiting room for my appointment. I really appreciated the help I received from Nina in picking out my glasses. She made finding a great pair easy and I am completely satisfied with the frames she helped me pick out, she is truly an asset to Omnivision!

- Certified Google user, Hamden CT

Dr Hochberg is very friendly and was very informative. I was seen promptly - I was in the waiting room for barely 2 minutes. His staff was extremely helpful and patient in helping me select a style of frames that looked good. I highly recommend this practice to others!

- Fanny W. NY

The staff here are amazing. Nina is great. The doctor is also fantastic.

- Mel V.

Very clean and organized. Staff is really helpful and always with a smile! Dr. Hochberg is really friendly, courteous, professional and knowledgeable.
Their website and patient portal are very helpful. I am glad that there are still Local, doctor's owned vision practices in town!

- Idaisa G.

Dr. Hochberg, and his entire staff, were friendly, professional and made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in the door. Everything was explained so thoroughly I didn't need to ask any questions about anything. Definitely recommend OmniVision!!!

- Claudia C.

I've been going here for many years and can't say enough about Dr. Hochberg and his staff. The office is extremely clean, efficient, and has top notch technology. Dr. Hochberg is an incredibly friendly, genuine, and competent clinician who always has his patient's best interest in mind. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I do not hesitate to recommend OmniVision to anyone.

- Jay O.

This is the best office by far!!! Dr. Hochberg is amazing, wonderful personality and so knowledgeable and kind. Nina and Erin are fantastic!!! We can sit in the office all day conversing with them, they complement the practice on the largest scale. We will NEVER go anywhere else and we recommend the practice to everyone.

- Marie N. New Haven CT

This office is fantastic.  Prompt, great communication.  Dr. Hochberg was my referring and follow up doc through Lasik two years ago and it's been the best experience ever.

- Nicole B. Hamden CT

My first time here today. Wonderful front desk staff, Doctor and Assistant. No unnecessary waiting and the doctor and assistant are clearly knowledgeable about eye health, eye care, and customer/ patient service. As someone who is hard to please, I highly recommend this practice.

- Speedy J. New Haven CT

Got my eye exam at a different place but went here to get my glasses because I heard they had a better selection of frames.  Very friendly staff, offering great recommendations without being pushy.  Pointed out which frames came in larger or smaller versions, different colors, etc.  Ended up getting both regular glasses and prescription sunglasses which were totally worth the splurge.  When I went back to pick them up (a day or two before the quoted time), they knew me by name, took time adjusting frames.  Went back one more time to fine tune the fit and again they knew me by name.  Overall pleased with the customer service, have already recommended to several friends.

- Emily S. New Haven CT

Love Dr. Hochberg and his staff. Staff is friendly and helpful and the office is clean and pleasant, but the most important reason I go to Omnivision is that Dr. Hochberg is the best eye doctor I have ever been to. My daughter and I have different eye issues that require careful management and I wouldn't trust our eyes to anyone else. His expertise and intervention have helped improve our vision and eye health. And really, what more is there?

- Lee M. North Haven CT

Great staff & expertise! Great experience for my entire family- everyone is very nice patient & professional.

- Tameeka

I have been seeing Dr. Hochberg for the last year. Every visit has been great, the office is clean and organized, the staff is super friendly, Dr. Hochberg is kind and easy to talk to about the visit, and the flow of the visit always goes smoothly. I've had no issues with ordering contacts or purchasing eyewear. They have a great selection of fashionable and unique eyewear which I can appreciate since I prefer to wear something different than most. I've found myself purchasing their accessories along the way too, they have a nice selection of everything. Visits are quick too, which is great since I am very busy with work. With that being said, the schedule is flexible and they always seem to be able to fit me in!

- Lexa R. Hamden CT

Dr. Hochberg was so kind, pleasant, and made every effort to make my experience a positive one.  He was also very accurate with my contacts prescription - he was quick and highly competent. This was my first time at this practice and I was very impressed.  The staff were very polite and clearly happy.  I would definitely recommend this place to people looking for an eye doc in the area.

- Heather H. Hamden CT

Dr Hochberg and his staff are professional, warm and friendly. I've been going to Omnivision for six years now, ever since I moved to Hamden. In fact, I am so pleased with their services that I brought my mother to them for her annual visit! Nina (who is amazing) helped her find frames that complemented her face and she walked out with a big grin. I drop in whenever I'm in the area to get my eyeglasses adjusted, and I enjoy browsing through their amazing collection of frames, trying on everything, every time I'm there. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !

- Brenda A. Amston CT

I have been returning to Omnivision in Hamden for years, and now bring my daughter also. Dr Hochberg is always 100% friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and explains everything so clearly. The staff is also completely friendly, competent, professional. They make dealing with insurance and lens discounts a breeze. The office runs on time, always, and has a very efficient routine. I never even wait for the doctor more than a minute after I'm brought to the exam room. The shop is pristine and beautiful. And Nina, the optician, is the absolute best. She is super friendly and also respectful of different people wanting different things. She is super good at picking up on your taste and helping you find frames that you like and that look good on you. She'll tell you her opinion in the most tactful way, if you ask her for that assistance, and she has a terrific eye, no matter what your style. She never pressures to buy more expensive things, and is happy with you if you get a good deal. Last time I went, she stayed to help me during her lunch break, and she was so gracious I didn't even realize it until I noticed that everyone else was gone. In a nutshell, Omnivision in Hamden is stellar at customer service, and they always make you feel like the most valued customer they have. I rarely write reviews, but this business deserves the time it takes to write all this out (on my phone!).

I had made *2* other optometry appointments in the area over the last several months and both (!!) different centers cancelled the same day citing medical emergencies. I don't know if am bad luck : ( One did not call to notify me, I just showed up midmorning and the entire building was locked up and I called to find a vm informing me. I totally get emergencies happen, and i hope all goes well, but I was surprised by the lack of coordination or notification for a healthcare business. [I will spare everyone my usual rant about how silly it is to have a health system in the 21st century be a cottage industry of store fronts thanks to our fractured privatized health care...] But since I work long hours and people seemed to booked months in advance (?!) I was very grateful that the staff at Omnivision was patient and able to work with me to figure out an appointment. I really appreciate everyone was professional, flexible, patient and courteous, and just got the job done. Thankfully there were no medical emergencies.

- D.M.

I've been going for the past few years and it remains to be the best! Dr. Hochberg is phenomenal! I have recommended multiple family and friends. I must add that Nina, the optical technician/ assistant in eyewear is truly the BEST! She is awesome with her assistance in choosing the best glasses. She has gone above and beyond and has even emailed me to assure that I am satisfied with everything. I won't go anywhere else! Thanks to the entire team!!!! I love my MODO's Nina;)

- Kal A. Hamden CT

Great staff.  Efficient.  Dr. Hochberg is attentive to patient needs and concerns.  Sound location and aesthetically pleasing.  Would recommend OmniVision to anyone with optometry needs.

- Todd S.

Everyone is so friendly here. They make you feel welcomed from the moment you walk in to the second you walk out.. Dr Hochberg is very attentive to special needs, and explains everything. The entire staff takes their time with you..

- Kimberly R. New Haven CT

This place is great! The staff was so helpful and understanding. I didn't have a sitter at the time of my eye exam and my 1 year old was being a 1 year old and the receptionists entertained him while I had my exam done. The doctor was thorough and explained what each element of the exam was. He also got me out quickly and efficiently since my son was being rambunctious. Service was great. I'm definitely trusting them with my business!!!
