I’ve worn glasses or contacts for the past 35 years. Dr. Blaize is BY FAR the best eye doctor I have visited. Since I became a patient, my eye strain related headaches have gone away. The staff at Bayview Optical does an amazing job and I gladly recommend them to my family and friends.

I came here for the first last year and was not the biggest fan. Laurie was great and super friendly. However, two times during my exam, Dr. Blaize ignored me and went straight to my mother to explains things to her instead. My mother was only there to drive me home because I knew I would get my eyes dilated. I don't understand why he did that despite me filling out paperwork that included my name and birthday, showing that I was the patient and that I am an adult. The second time Laurie asked him to come out and explain things to me but she had to nudge him on the arm because he was talking to my mother AGAIN instead of to me. I found that to be quite disrespectful.
