Testimonials from our patients

Katie R.

"I have been coming here for years and I always feel like I've had a nice and detailed exam. The staff are very kind and the doctor always goes over everything with me so I never feel like I'm missing any information."

Evan B.

"Had an eye infection and went to Dr. Schiff. He was very helpful and got me the prescription and all that I needed very fast and my eye infection went away after a week. Great service. THANKS AGAIN, DR. SCHIFF!"

Gary F.

"Very nice doctor. Very thorough examination. Very inexpensive for great glasses. Thanks again, Dr. Schiff."


"Great doctor, very kid-friendly, and makes funny jokes to make the appointment go quick!"

Robert D.

"I recommend his office and services to everyone in the area, and it's even worth a trip if you don't live close by."

Kimmie C.

"At my job, we recently switched insurance providers (thank you Obamacare!) which left me unable to see my regular eye doctor. Dr. Steven Schiff was listed as taking my insurance. I have several friends and coworkers who have gone there and have been quite satisfied, so after reading some online reviews and checking out his practice website I scheduled an appointment for my annual eye exam.

The office and waiting area were clean and welcoming, and the staff were friendly, efficient, and clearly explained which benefits were covered by my insurance, and what my non-covered expenses might be, if any. There was no wait, I was seen right on time, and Dr. Schiff conducted a thorough, professional exam and offered several new, reasonably priced choices for eyeglasses and contact lenses that had not been mentioned at all by my prior eye doctors.

I walked out of the office with better fitting contacts and fancy new glasses that cost even less than I had paid before! I highly recommend Dr. Steven Schiff and Deer Park Vision Care."

Susan M.

"Dr. Schiff is great! I started wearing glasses several years back and never had a problem with any of my glasses. The ladies in the office were extremely helpful in choosing a pair of frames that I liked. I always got compliments. I never had any issues with my glasses from Dr. Schiff's office, and if I did I'm sure they would fix them ASAP.

After that, I made the mistakes of trying Cohen's in Bayshore and Davis Visionworks in North Babylon (Cohen's because of a stupid coupon, then Visionworks because I got Davis Vision insurance). Both were terrible experiences and terrible eyeglasses. Visionworks gave me the worst glasses I ever owned.

Now that I'm due for glasses again, I won't make the mistake of going to any of these big "chains". Bonus – Dr. Schiff is in the Davis Vision plan!"

Terry P.

"My wife and I have been going to Deer Park Vision Care for years; we've both always been delighted with the service, the attention, and the overall experience. Dr. Schiff is professional AND personable, which is a nice combination. His staff is always pleasant and courteous. We've always gotten our glasses quickly and with no unpleasant surprises. My only gripe is the parking lot; be prepared to do a little maneuvering to get in and out. Otherwise, highly recommended."

Melody S.

"Professional and knowledgeable doctor and staff. Very hands-on and caring opticians. They make sure you look the best you can and are comfortable with the glasses you choose. Such a wide selection of frames for the whole family. I can't wait till next year when I can get new frames."

Jackie G.

"I've been wearing glasses and contacts for almost 35 years. This was one of the most thorough eye exams I have had. I felt very comfortable bringing my 10-year-old son to Dr. Schiff for his first pair of glasses. He was very gentle and patient and even did magic tricks to keep him amused. He explained all of the tests also. The prescriptions were right on target, the glasses were comfortable, and there were no issues with insurance payments. I have since recommended my parents to Deer Park Vision Care and they have had an equally impressive experience."

Raymond P.

"I have been using Deer Park Vision for over 10 years. They are great to work with.

Dr. Steven Schiff makes you feel like you’re his only customer! He has been also taking care of my children as well.

I highly recommend him and his team! There were nights I was running late and they waited for me. His front desk always greets you with smiles."

John B.

"The staff was courteous and helpful. Dr. Schiff did a complete battery of tests and the results of each test were clearly explained as were any abnormalities and difficulties that exist in my vision. The staff then coordinated my results with appropriate sets of frames and insurance coverage. I picked up my new glasses in a very reasonable amount of time and they adjusted the frames to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend Deer Park Vision and Dr. Schiff."

Cougar Chic

"I've been going to Deer Park Vision for a couple of years and I’ve been treated with the utmost respect that a person can receive. They take the time to make sure your needs are met to ensure the best vision for you possibly. I feel like they are an extended family when it comes to my sight. I’m a person with only 1 eye and I can see perfectly with my glasses. Dr. Schiff is a caring man when it comes to my situation and my vision."

David B.

"My family and I have been patients of Dr. Schiff for over 20 years. The doctor and his amazing staff are always very helpful and professional in all aspects of dealing with me and my family. I cannot say enough about how pleased we are with Deer Park Vision. We all recommend them highly to anyone looking for a good optometrist and a professionally run practice."

Val B.

"My experience with Deer Park Vision Care was most positive. Dr. Schiff was precise and well versed in his methodology. The staff was cooperative and made choosing a suitable frame any easy task. I must say that I wear my new glasses much more now than my previous glasses obtained elsewhere because of their comfort level and the vast improvement they incur in my visual acuity."
