Excellent Optometrist

I have been with Bayview Optical since 2015. I visit them every one or two years. Dr. Blaize is a very nice and excellent optometrist. He always checks my eyes thoroughly. He not only gives me perfect prescription but also checks if I have glaucoma and other eye diseases. Store manager Lori is so nice and knowledgeable. She helped me select the right glasses and frames each time. In fact, I always choose to visit on the days when she will be on duty. I really appreciate their service. Thank you Dr. Blaize, thank you Lori.

Caring Advice.

I have been coming here for at least ten years. I’ve always had a wonderful, and warm caring experience here. Dr. Blaze is so caring and any questions I’ve had even when he’s not in he’s always got back to me. Laurie has been a blessing as well. Her knowledge and advice are always right on target. The receptionists are very sweet, as well!

Sheri Colbert

LGBTQ+ Friendly.

The staff at Bayview optical is not only professional, knowledgeable, and efficient, but they also are very sensitive and caring. They are LGBTQ+ friendly and very respectful of pronouns which is something we have not experienced at every business establishment. Thank you Bayview Optical!

Great Service During COVID.

I’ve been a customer since Bayview Optical opened. I keep coming here after moving closer to work; it’s now a 35 mile drive and I make it gladly. Why? The people care. I don’t get pressure-sold something I don’t need. I get an honest answer about whether my eye prescription has changed significantly from my last pair of glasses for a new pair to be worth it. On top of that, with family members having immune issues and being especially susceptible to high-risk cases of COVID-19, they booked me end-of-day appointments, and called me in my car when the store was clear of other customers. This is the kind of thing that keeps me coming back!


Appointments available during COVID!  

The first impression is always when you come through the door for me. The expression on a person face tells it all. I always make sure I watch that. The Office is clean, smells good, the Staff is dressed presentable and ready to work. Also whether the staff is at the front desk or on the floor you are greeted. At Bayview this is a 100% for me with the Staff and Dr. Gerald N Blaize is the best ever he has patience, he isn’t in a rush, listen, suggests etc. I first learned of Bayview 2 years ago when I was doing my own researching, reading to find a place for my Husband to go to. Also with this COVID-19 going on it’s very hard to make appointments. I called around to so many places to check what insurance do they take etc. I finally got fed up and I thought about giving Bayview a jingle. I called them and said I would like to setup an appointment. I had no hassle at all! My appointment was set easy breezy. I must say the day of my appointment was awhile because of the three tests I had, getting my eyes dilated etc this was my first time so I understand. I can go on and on and on but if you truly care about your health like I do go to Bayview. I am set for the rest of the year! Lol I still have to call sometimes/ guess what no problem whatsoever! At the end they treat individuals the way they want to be treated. It’s so calm and relaxing to deal with them!

Livonia Optical Store

I started going to Bayview Optical in 2020 after moving to Livonia. Great experience for a new patient – the Dr. and staff live up to the reviews.

The Best Care in Decades! 

From my initial call to Bayview Optical all the way through to completion of my eye exam and eyeglass order, I was treated with such respect and kindness. In the past I have shopped eyeglasses at the large retail chain stores because I thought I was getting a better deal – NOT TRUE, Bayview was on point with pricing and selection. I will go back again for sure!

Andy Senita

Livonia Eye Doctor

I’ve been coming here since I moved to Livonia and would recommend Bayview to anyone who needs their eyes cared for. The whole process has been a pleasant experience as the Bayview team works behind the scenes to make improving your vision simple and easy. When I walk in I feel my concerns and questions are heard and addressed. When I walk out I feel confident I went to the right place.

Robin Harris

Livonia Optometrist

This Livonia Optometrist and his staff are outstanding. They treated me and my mother with the utmost kindness, patience and respect. No optical business goes out of there way to ensure the patient is relaxed and comfortable like Bayview Optical.

They Got My Contact Lens Prescription Right!

Fantastic experience!  From the moment you walk through the office door you are treated as if you are family.  I have searched high and low for someone who could get my contact lens prescription correct so that I could discard my dime store readers.  Dr. Blaize did it.  He listened patiently to my issues and worked with me week after week until he found just the treatments and prescription.  I am so happy to rid of the readers.  Laurie, Dr. Blaize and the rest of the staff care about their patients and their patients eye health.  I appreciate the entire cast more than they can know. Thank you!!!!!

Laura Olter

Available for Eye Emergencies

I have been a long time customer of Bayview Optical.  They are like family to us.  It’s so refreshing to be known as a person & not a number.  My daughter has been going to Bayview Optical since she was in the 2nd grade. The service we get from Dr.Blaize and his exceptional staff is amazing!  They have always been available for our eye emergencies.  I highly recommend Bayview Optical to my family & co-workers.  So if you are in search for a new optometrist I would definitely give them a call! 🙂

Tina Olter


Michigan Optometrist for Life! I have been going to Bayview Optical since I was in second grade, now I’m a senior in college and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else ! Everyone on staff here is amazing and so welcoming, its like family when I come in ! They always want to do what’s best for me. Whenever I need emergency services, they are always readily available. I would definitely refer them to all my friends and family ! 🙂


Livonia MI Optical Store

This optical store is a gem. My son had an eye injury and had never been a patient here before. They fixed an insurance issue we had and saw him that same day for care. They fixed his eye and the doctor gave us his private number to call if we had any problems over the weekend. Since then I have also been a patient and love their care. Laurie helped me find the perfect frames.



Donations from Bayview Optical Help Local Woman  I recently moved to Indianapolis because my son is deaf and they have a really good school here for him. It was an easy decision to make because I know it is what’s best for him. But I knew the process of moving and making it on my own was going to be a struggle. The day before we began our move I was surprised with a party/benefit for my son and the person who came up with this idea was Laurie. The point of the party wasn’t just to help me out financially but it was also to show me how many people love and care about us. I realized how many people are behind me supporting this decision and willing to help in whatever way they can. I was really touched that someone cares that much about me to do something like this for me. Not only did I have Laurie to thank for that but there were also several pairs of sunglasses donated from Bayview Optical for a raffle. I was really overwhelmed with all the emotions I was feeling, the fact that someone was willing to do something so thoughtful really touched my heart. There aren’t too many people and places that do things like this out of the kindness of their heart. She didn’t have to go out of her way, but she did because she cares and that is the type of person she is. It just goes to show what kind of employees Bayview Optical has. I will never forget that day, and I will always appreciate what Bayview Optical did.



Restored My Eyes To Excellent Condition  Wonderful results! When I first began seeing Dr. Blaize, my eyes were in extremely poor condition due to overuse of my contacts. As he described them, my eyes looked like “an ocean with rough waves” when they are supposed to be clear. After prescribing a treatment plan, Dr. Blaize has restored my eyes to excellent condition. I am extremely pleased and highly recommend his services. His staff will make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in the door!

Professional and Cordial!

This is a great place for eye needs. The people are very professional and cordial. Very happy with my eye exam and the new glasses.

Stephen McQuillan

Great Local Business!

Courteous staff. No waiting when we showed up for our appointment.

Angie C.

Patient for Life!

Optical appointments have been a struggle for me all my life and I had not found the perfect optometrist or facility until now. I can’t say enough positive things about my experience with Dr. Blaize and his fantastic staff. I now have a home for my optical needs, the staff takes great care of their patients, spends as much time with you as you need and never pressures you into buying, they want you to be comfortable, happy and satisfied. I can honestly say it is the BEST experience I have ever had. Thank you Dr. Blaize and staff, I’m a patient for life!

Outstanding Customer Service

We have been going to Bayview Optical for 10 plus years. Dr. Blaize is very thorough. Laurie and staff are amazing. They all treat you like family. Outstanding customer service. Highly recommend.

Kevin Murdock

Neighborhood Optician

Very friendly, welcoming and professional without losing that neighborhood feel. Took extra time to explain test results and help with eyeglass frame selections.


Professional Place and People

Very caring and they don’t try to push products for you to buy what you don’t need. Whoever I suggest to go there, they went and called back to share the professionalism and kindness at Bayview Optical Livonia. Be safe and humble!

Kelly Victor-Burke

Customer Service & Care

I’ve never been to an optical office that offers such extraordinary customer service & care. The optometrist saw me multiple times to make sure my contact lenses and eye glasses had me seeing the best I’ve saw in years. Laurie was so knowledgeable about frames and even went out of her way to order frames from a new company just because she thought they’d look good on me. I highly recommend Bayview Optical!


Special Lenses 

This place is friendly, professional, and caring. I trust Dr. Blaize with my eyes! I have astigmatism and hypertropia (lazy eye) which requires special lenses. The Doc can also provide me with no-line bifocals. The office staff is so great! My entire family of five comes here and I feel safe and well cared for.

Lisa Rankey

Emergency Eyeglass Repair

I am a long time patient of Bayview optical. Dr Blaze, Laurie and crew have always taken amazing care of me. They have squeezed me in during an emergency eyeglass repair. Always professional and knowledgeable, they answer all my questions. They also help me choose which frames fit and look best! I love my optical team! Highly recommended!! Great hours of service, day, evening and weekend appointments.

Sara Muchmore

Friendly & Efficient

The entire staff at Bayview is friendly, efficient, and willing to go the extra mile for their patients.  I highly recommend Dr. Blaze and his staff!

Kaitlyn Ellis

Best Optometrist and Optometry Service

This place is the absolute best! Been to several optometrists throughout my life, and these are the most caring, giving, and spot on I’ve ever been to. I never thought about optometry being customer service before I came here, but they bring the element of customer service to a whole new level. Great selection of glasses for all ages, too. HIGHLY recommend!!!

The Staff Always Remembers Me 

I have been coming to Dr. Blaize since 2011. He has been so accommodating with me. I HATE having anything in my eyes (drops, air, contacts). He has been very gentle and minimalist with my care while still being thorough. Plus the staff always remembers me and makes me feel at home.

Mark Johnson

Good Selection of Lenses 

The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. I feel welcome whenever I am there. The wait isn’t bad at all and I’m never feeling rushed when I leave. They have a very good selection of lenses to choose from. I’m not a big fan of reviews but I do think they deserve to be recognized for their excellent work.


Dr Blaize Is A Wonderful Optometrist

I feel Bayview Optical is a wonderful place for all your eye care needs. Dr Blaize is a wonderful optometrist that cares for his patients’ needs and the staff is really nice and always concerned. I would refer anyone to them!


Knowledgeable, Helpful, And Friendly

Awesome people here! I’ve been going to Bayview for a few years and will never go anywhere else. Very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I also like to spend my money at local businesses like Bayview.



Glad I Chose Bayview Optical Very pleasant experience. Very Friendly staff. I just moved to the area and am glad I chose to go to Bayview Optical. I ordered contacts and they came in two days. I also was set up with a bunch of rebates for the contacts which always helps.


Great Care And Friendly Atmosphere

I have been a patient of Bayview since 2008. I have had nothing but positive experiences every year. Dr. Blaize and his staff are friendly and professional. They are accommodating when it comes to scheduling an appointment and when I am in the office I feel I am among friends. I have offered the highest recommendation anytime opportunity presents itself! I will not leave the care and friendly atmosphere Dr. Blaize and his staff has treated me to since I first became a patient.



My Choice Of Eyeglasses  I enjoyed my overall experience at Bayview Optical. The people are friendly and supportive in my choice of eyeglasses. The location is basically next door to my house, so that’s a huge plus, and Bayview also takes my current insurance. I would recommend this place to my friends and employees.

  • Jason Ruzycki

    I have been going to Dr. Blaze for years now and I have always had a great experience. Dr. Blaze and the staff are always very friendly and willing to help in any way possible. It is a very comfortable setting and the vision after is always better. I would recommend Bayview Optical to anyone with corrective lens needs!

  • Kalma Ross

    I have been going to Bayview Optical for a few years now. I can't say a bad thing about them. They have always made sure my glasses/contacts are perfect. When I did have an issue with my progressive lenses I talked to them and they got it corrected quickly. Here they know who you are and treat you as part of a family. You will never be a number and will get the best service possible.

  • Craig Willbanks
    I've been coming to Bayview for many years and have always had great experiences! Dr. Blaize has been very helpful in finding the right prescription for me and trialing different lenses until finding one that works great. He also has wonderful help up front, Laurie has been extremely helpful in picking out glasses that look good.
  • Stephen Webster

    The customer service at Bayview is always excellent. The staff is super helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met. Laurie went out of her way to make sure my lenses looked great, and that they didn't make my eyes look buggy. Very Happy!

  • Kimberly Robertson
    My experience at Bayview Optical has always been great. Dr. Blaize is very knowledgeable, and has a very patient staff. Everyone is very helpful and ready to make you satisfied with your experience. They have very stylish frame choices, with a generous selection. I have absolutely no complaints. My whole family is treated by Dr. Baize and his staff and we couldn't be happier!
  • Nancy Schneider

    I was referred to Bayview by a gal at ANOTHER Optician's office. She knew I would find the frames I was searching for there. I met with Lori, Michelle, Kelly, and Dr. Blaize and was very impressed. All of them were/are very personable and professional. I was able to locate my "special" frame, and get all of my questions answered. There were/are no insurance issues and I always feel well-cared for, with undivided attention. I highly recommend Bayview Optical!!!

  • Lesa Ferencz

    We love this office. The staff is friendly and very responsive. Appointments are easy to get and the doctor very kind and most importantly....knowledgeable. Eye glass selection is comprehensive and the turn around for my child's new glasses has been timely. We highly recommend Bayview Optical.

  • Elizabeth Marino

    I started going to Bayview Optical last year and wish I had started sooner! All the workers are so professional and knowledgeable of their profession.They are SO helpful and make you feel very welcome in their store. They have a great selection of glasses and make sure you feel you are 100% satisfied before leaving. I would recommend this optometrist to anyone and already have!

  • Rebecca Sitler
    I've been coming to Bayview Optical for about ten years. Everyone there is always so welcoming and professional. I couldn't imagine a better experience and selection for my glasses and contacts needs.
  • Michael McCleary
    I have been coming here for about 4 years. The staff is great and friendly. Dr. Blaize has always been very nice and professional. The. selection of glasses is a decent size with a lot of quality frames. There Saturday hours are a huge help as I work longer hours through the week.
  • Deb Drummond

    I first came to Bayview Optical in 2010 after experiencing a disastrous experience with another office when I tried to get contacts. As a new contact wearer, the other office didn't teach me to put the contacts in nor fit me properly. Bayview fitted me with the perfect contact prescription and I could see better than with my glasses. Not only that, Laurie was such a big help, teaching me how to put them in and take care of them. Even though I no longer wear contacts, I've remained with Bayview because the service is great, the staff is friendly, and I'm always satisfied with the choices Laurie has helped me make when getting new glasses. Can't recommend Bayview highly enough!

  • Monica Levin

    Great service and beautiful eyeglasses! I have been coming to Bayview Optical for my eye exams and glasses for five years. Five Stars!

  • Maureen M

I will go back again for sure!
  • Kelsey Lamb

    Excellent customer service and quality care. The only facility I have been to that takes so much time to help me select the best pair of frames for me. Lori also sat and helped me feel confident with contacts, which is something I have always had trouble with. Highly recommend.

  • Shirley Robertson

    Our family have been going here for quite a few years now. Dr. Blaize is thorough and takes the time to listen to any concerns you have. Laurie is awesome. She is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to picking out glasses and is excellent at fitting them to your

  • Kevin Casey

    My wife and I went in for our eye exam there and it is a quiet and quaint place.
    The eye exam was is typical as you would find in many other places, but the customer service is top notch. We browsed Costco’s selection of frames but they were not as nice as Bayview’s. Bayview has a friendly staff. Dr. Blaize is laid back and very kind. The staff does not pressure you into buying anything. My wife got a pair of glasses and they bothered her. We went in every week for 3 weeks and they made sure that everything was OK. We eventually ended up going with a different frame and they were very helpful in the process and helped us out. I would highly recommend this place. It is the type of place I would take my own mother to.
