Testimonials

"Very very nice environment (and free coffee!) and friendly staff. I felt like a guest not a patient. The nice gentleman in Optics did a great job picking out frames that worked with my features & personality.  The frames, notwithstanding my insurance, were also very reasonably priced compared to the big-chain retail establishments."

--Chris P.

"Excellent place!! I took my son there today with an injury. The service and care was the best out there. We saw Dr. Giedd and she was wonderful with my son. She was patient and very informative to both myself and him. We will go back for sure!"

--Mossimus

"My whole family loves Eola Eyes. My children love Dr. Williams - She takes the time to listen to them and treats like they are her most important clients. We trust her advice on caring for our eyes. Everyone who works there is awesome! I happily recommend Eola Eyes to anyone who needs to go to the eye doctor!"

--Nicole M.

"Eola Eyes in Orlando provided me with a great eye care experience. Dr. Giedd took her time and explained my vision problems to me. Then, she helped me create a custom game plan on how to proceed with my specific needs.  The office is friendly and competent - My FAVORITE combination.  Thank you Dr. Giedd and Eola Eyes."

--Sally K.

"I would highly recommend Eola Eyes. Why should you trust me? Well, because this is my first time writing a review on yelp. The front desk staff is attentive and aware which is different than any other optometrist I've been to; I feel they focus on the customer service aspect of business more than their peers. My visit was with Dr. Beedle and she was great to work with. This place is exactly what 5 stars should exemplify."

--David F.

"The whole culture here is about excellence. I met Dr. Giedd first and she's a gem. I also love the retrofit of their office space on Mills!"

--Debbie L.

"Hands down the BEST frame selection in downtown Orlando! I also love the great service provided by Dr. Beedle and her entire staff. Everyone is friendly and helpful. This is my FAVORITE eye wear and eye care place, I can't imagine going anywhere else. HIP, COOL, FRAMES THAT EVERYONE WILL LOVE!"

--British H.

"I've tried a lot of optometrists in the area, all the typical places like 20/20 and lense crafters. After reading a few reviews here on yelp I decided to check this place out, I'm very happy with the service. I went in for a yearly exam and contact prescription and I think I'm done looking around. The building is clean and the staff is nice enough. The sales personnel weren't pushy at all, we're more than cool with me just buying a few boxes where I usually get hassled to buy a "6 month supply". But what really set this place apart was the consultation, the lady who took care of me was great, very easy going and pleasant. She took her time answering all of my questions without making me feel rushed. And did was very thorough with examinations of my vision and eyes.

Sometimes you get that feeling at these kinds of places that you're wasting their time and I just didn't get that feeling at all. I now understand why their ratings are so high, they deserve it."

--Erick A.

"If you want great service combined with top of the line style and the best eye care treatment, search no further.

Eola Eyes will take care of all your needs and they treat you like your one of their family members.  DO NOT let pricing keep you away.  These are your eyes people and worth the investment!!

Thank you Eola Eyes for taking care of your Orlando customers."

--Breanda R.

"Great doctors! I've followed them from Summerlin to Jackson Street to Mills. Very happy to know these wonderful women who support downtown Orlando as local business owners!"

--Cindy G.

"Great experience all around. Friendly, professional and thorough."

--Art C.

"I went here today for the first time and had a great experience. Everyone is extremely professional and courteous, and made me feel comfortable and welcome.

Once my eye exam was done, I was introduced to Ron, who was extremely personable and helped me pick out a few different frames that fit my face (and my budget!)

Overall it was a fantastic visit, and I can definitely say I'll be coming here in the future!"

--Marc P.

"Best Eye Doctors and staff in Orlando!!!"

--Christopher M.

"The best service around. They treat their customers like family.  I've been going here for over 3 years now.  Even though I don't live downtown any more, they aren't losing my business. I recently ran out of contacts before I had an order placed. I didn't realize until the day that I was going to a football game.  Being a Saturday, I was worried I couldn't get more contacts, and I really didn't want to wear my glasses all day. I called a few local eyeglass places that were open, and they all said they didn't have any in stock. A few offered to see me for a fee and they may be able to get me some trials, bit it would be about $120 for the appointment. Annoyed and out of options, I called Eola Eyes.  They were closed, but the recording had the number for the doctor on call. I called her, and told her my dilemma. I told her I needed to reorder asap. She offered to run by the office and not only place my reorder, but get me some trials for the game that day! Sure enough, an hour later I got a text and she said there was an envelope taped to the door with my name on it. I had some trials to wear while I waited on my order, which came in on Tuesday!

If you are looking for an amazing group of professionals, you won't find anyone better.  Their eyewear team is also great, and have put me in a pair of glasses that I get more compliments about then any I've ever worn. I highly recommend them."

--Ryan  M.

"They know me so well here that Jay saw a pair of awesome custom Davies frames for me in NYC and placed an order right there on the spot. Exceptional service. Great eye care.  Cool office. Awesome location. I get my contacts here and anything else I need for eyecare. I highly recommend."

--Beatrice M.

"I absolutely love Eola Eyes.  The courteousness shown by the staff and doctors is incomparable to any other optometrist I've been to.

Dr. Beedle was extremely kind and helped me with my decision to get daily contact lenses, and I needed a pair of new glasses.  She was patient with me as I had a few questions, and Ron on the retail side for frames was AMAZING.  I could not decide on a pair and he was extremely helpful on picking out the right frames for my face. I purchased those Oliver Peoples and they were ready extremely quickly. 

My contacts had to be ordered, but Dr. Beedle ensured I'd be covered because she gave me almost 2 weeks' worth of samples! 

The atmosphere is clean, trendy...the music is fun and there's coffee with all kinds of flavors while you're waiting or choosing frames.

I will never go anywhere else!  Ron will be picking out my prescription sunglasses too. :)"

--Destiny Q.

"What a great experience. I have been going to one of their competitors a few miles down on Mills and was turned off by the office, long waiting times, and bedside manner. I saw Dr. Beedle and she was excellent. Friendly, smart, and she did not try to push any products or services on me. I have a unique situation and she explained everything to me in an easy to understand way.

The equipment there is impressive - very top of the line. And the office is super modern and aesthetically pleasing. They also offer coffee and tea while you wait. And they send you text/email reminders which I LOVE. For some reason it freaks me out when I see a doctor's office calling me so I prefer texts."

--Brooke H.

"Wow! I am thoroughly impressed with this place.  Great service from everyone on staff. My eye exam was thorough, not rushed. The doctor engaged me in thorough discussion about overall eye health and even took the time to discuss the various options of contact lenses that would meet my needs and lifestyle. She did not rush me in and out. I greatly appreciate the fact that she took TIME. It gave me a sense that she was really interested in EYES and left no stone unturned in evaluating my vision.

Everyone here is warm and acts with care and concern for the patients/customers walking through.

There is a great selection of frames here as well. Someone has good taste for what styles are brought into the inventory. Also I was impressed with the speed with which my glasses were ready for me to pick up.

And yes, like everyone else has mentioned ... current technology, clean, and polished looking and all of that good and comforting stuff! PLUS tea/coffee and water!"

--Sydney H.

"Clean and they run on time. Love this place when my eyes need a check up!"

--Rhia M.

"I love the look of this place. Everything is so clean, organized and modern looking.  What a fantastic staff.  Everyone is friendly (and attractive).

Dr. Beedle really took her time diagnosing and treating my many eye ailments.  Follow up visits and any appointments needed because of contact issues are free."

--Frances F.

"Came in today and saw Dr Williams for my Annual Eye Exam - I switched to this boutique office due to I like the modern feel and my Specs received tons of Compliments from various friends etc! They are the only office I know that carry $750 eye FRAMES lol! The variety of frames they have range from Oliver Peoples, Chanel, Gucci, Coach, Rayban and other unknown and unheard of brands that to me are excellent modern looking frames!

They also are big on up to date technology with eye science spectrum."

--Joy J.

"This is the best experience I have had at any type of medical office BY FAR.  The doctor was friendly and efficient yet patient with me (I'm always worried I'm going to choose the wrong one when they're rapid firing those blurry images at you).  She double checked all the settings to make sure she got my Rx exactly right. 

I loved the technology in the office - for example instead of getting an uncomfortable puff of air to the eyeball she had this new handheld tool that did the same test with absolutely no discomfort. 

I also really appreciated the efficiency in the office - they don't just leave you waiting like their time is so much more important than yours.  Instead of sitting in the chair waiting for my eyes to dilate, I was sent out to Jay on the retail side to choose my glasses, and was able to order/pay and complete all the business, then go back for the last part of my exam, and then I was on my way.  Glasses and sunglasses came in within the week, and Jay called to update me on their progress. 

Well run, friendly and efficient office!"

--Jessica M.

"This place is top notch .

Can't say enough, my first time there, they hooked me up found me some glasses everything was quick, professional, and super friendly."

--Stephen L.

"I will never go to another eye place again!
I've been going to Dr. Beadle for a LONG time now - maybe 10 years?
I have lots of "eye issues" as in, I don't like things in/near/around my eyes.  I don't like exams, I will never wear contacts...I don't even wear eye makeup.
She is super patient with me and the whole staff makes me feel very normal - even though I know I'm a freak!
Then it comes to the glasses side.  Jay is the man.  See no one else!
He's absolutely the best person you could see in this situation.
I love that I can put on a pair of glasses and he'll literally say to me, "take those off they are hurting my eyes..."  That is the kind of honest truth I need when picking out something I'm going to wear every single day!!
I've gotten some awesome glasses there, and each time, I get so many compliments.
They are so helpful, patient and quick!  I can't recommend them enough!"

--Jennifer C.

"I am so glad that my friend and co-worker recommended this office. A proud supporter of my home neighborhood of Mills50 - I am interested in bringing patronage to businesses along this corridor of Downtown Orlando. I was surprised to hear my co-worker mention the location that I knew was close to me as his 'go to, must see' location for eye care.

He couldn't have been more accurate.

This office meets my needs on all levels. Fantastic small business prowess, clear on what they want to bring to the Mills50 neighborhood - and above all great eye care. This team has a focused understanding of brand, location/atmosphere and above all patient care. I was blown away by the office based on it's upkeep, modern design, attuned staff and efficiency in appointment scheduling and follow through - and that's long before I met my Doctor, Dr. Kerry Giedd.

Here's what I wrote on their Facebook Wall:

So proud to recommend Eola Eyes to anyone who is looking for a new eye care group. I have not been good about my ocular health and I can't tell you how effortless, enjoyable and personalized Eola Eyes made this for me. Dr. Kerry Giedd's bedside manner, personalization and memorization to specifics sets the bar for the health care industry. The offices understanding of their brand image and citizenship in the Mills50 area makes me proud to call them my eye care home!

This was written after I became under the care of the fantastic Dr. Kerry Giedd - who's not only connected as a working doctor in Central Florida, but clear on her small business objectives...setting the bar for eye care in Central Florida - but her attention to detail (Mentioning my aforementioned co-worker by name and his last visit) and eye education. (Walking me through and ensuring serious follow up on a small 'blip' on my overall eye care.)

My partner is switching to this office...and we couldn't be more thrilled with our choice in eye care.

*I noticed that another reviewer mentioned 'no high pressure sales.' I couldn't agree more. Couple of noteworthy items in their retail area. First, the specialist offered to fix my Banana Republic sunglasses for optimal fitting. (They were a side mention in the store, she knew just what to do!) Second, a random bicyclist and wayward gent knocked on a service door, only to be promptly assisted by Dr. Kerry - for a minor glasses adjustment he needed. From what I gathered, not even a patient. The team didn't bat an eye to help - FANTASTIC service."

--Jeff L.

"I have been wearing prescription lenses for 30 years.  I have never enjoyed the process of buying them.  I have never been pleased with my frames.  I have never felt that I made a good purchase.  Until today.

My wife purchased custom frames from Eola Eyes last month.  The process was quick and painless -- my favorite kind of shopping.  As a result, I decided that I needed to go have my eyes examined and get some new glasses (perhaps in large part because I cannot find my old pair of glasses, which I suspect, but cannot prove, have been hidden by members of my household . . . but I digress).

I had a 9:30 appointment and arrived at 9:15.  After I had filled out my paperwork, it was 9:25.  I did not have to wait but was immediately brought to the optometrist for my exam.  She was fast, effective and friendly.  On the whole, it was a great experience, to the extent one can have a great experience getting one's eyes examined. 

I then went out to look at frames.  The frame consultants (my term, because they were not trying to sell me anything) both independently identified the same frames as best for me.  I have to agree with them.  I did turn rather pale when I saw that they cost $525 but they really looked so much better than the $175 frames that I could not purchase anything else.

Any business that can make me feel good about spending $500 eyeglass frames (plus another $350 or so for progressive lenses) must be a five star business."

--David M.

"Highly recommend this place. Great staff. Fantastic doctor and NO HIGH PRESSURE SALES.

On time and my glasses  arrived early. Can't beat that."

--Trey T.

"Optometrist, optician and staff are all great and very professional. They use more modern methods to determine prescription requirements and I find this to be significantly more accurate compared to optometrists that still use older methods. I highly recommend these folks for your eye care needs."

--Bill T.

"My whole family loves Eola Eyes. My children love Dr. Williams - She takes the time to listen to them and treats like they are her most important clients. We trust her advice on caring for our eyes. Everyone who works there is awesome! I happily recommend Eola Eyes to anyone who needs to go to the eye doctor!"

"Been wearing glasses since I was 8 and this has been the best eye doctor I have been to! Dr. Beedle knew what she was doing and did it quickly and with care, my contacts feel great now. Melanie (I think was her name) was great with helping me pick out glasses, explain what my insurance covered, and never pressured me to get something I did not need. Thanks so much, I will be back!"

--Michael O.

"I loved my appointment the staff is friendly and efficient ! I can't wait to get my new pair of specs!"

--Mindy R.

"You guys are excellent! I was very happy with my visit. I'm recommending you guys to my friends and coworkers!"

--Patricia C.

"I've been a problem child for optometrists and ophthalmologists for 30+ years and Dr. Beedle gave me the best exam of my life. An eye exam is an eye exam, right? This one felt better. My vision issues were better addressed. Everything was better. Thank you, Dr. B."

--Shanna G.

"I am SO HAPPY I found Eola Eyes!!! The service is exceptional, the eye technology used for the exam is up to date and state of the art, the frame choices are hot, creative and very upscale....I LOVE THIS PLACE! Thank you for making my "4 eyes" experience a stylish and sexy one!"

--British H.

--Google Reviewer

"When I first moved to FL eight years ago, I was referred to Eola Eyes by a friend. It was a bit of a drive to get there but definitely worth it. It is great going back and seeing everyone. You are never forgotten (even if it has been a year since your last visit)! I always walk away with a thorough eye exam and quality contacts and glasses. Great place, great people, great experience. I highly recommend it if you are looking (no pun intended) for an eye doctor!"

--Amy C.

"I have been going to Eola Eyes for years now. They are always super professional, friendly and quick. I always ask for Jay when choosing my glasses as he's very knowledgeable. If youre looking for an eye doctor in the Orlando or Winter Park Florida area.....check them out!"

--Dustin D.

"Every experience I have had at Eola Eyes with Dr Giedd has been fantastic!  Their new location is extremely convenient if you live or work near the downtown Orlando area.  The new office isn't only chic but very clean, spacious and there is a large inventory of frames available to try on and to select from.  Dr Giedd is very thorough and ensures all your questions are answered, you're comfortable with the products chosen and cares you get the proper attention!  The staff has been nothing but professional, pleasant and helpful.  Definitely recommend!!!"

--Kristi S.

"Eola Eyes is the BEST!  Everything from the beautiful decor, to the wide variety of eyewear selections, great location, and amazing staff and doctors, from top to bottom, they are top notch!  Dr. Giedd always makes you feel comfortable and is very thorough during the examination.  She is very patient and happy to answer any questions you may have.  Even the front desk staff is always very friendly and welcoming.  When it comes to picking out new eyewear, Jay is the best in town!  He's very knowledgeable and fabulous to work with.  Their new location is not only chic, but equipped with the latest technology.  I know that I'm in the best hands with the most up to date resources.  Coming to Eola Eyes is definitely one doctors appointment that I look forward to going to!"

--Shonna W.

"If you live in the greater Orlando area this is the only place to go for eyecare and eye wear!"

--Deb D.

“My experience as well as that of my family has been amazing with Eola Eyes. My parents come from overseas to visit and have made it a habit to see Dr. Giedd for their vision needs. She is extremely thorough, very helpful and has made the experience for my parents a great one. My husband, child and I also see Dr. Giedd on a regular basis and every time the experience has been the same: Excellent!
The staff at Eola Eyes is very friendly and helpful, specially Jay, who would go the extra mile to help with anything a patient needs. Last thing, the facility... it is very contemporary and beautifully designed!"

--Maria K.

“In an era of voice menus and online shopping, the personal touch is a thing of the past... except at Eola Eyes. I have been a patient of Dr. Giedd's for nearly 9 years. When I go in for a routine eye examination, she checks all of the numbers and stats from my prior exams and points out changes. I feel a great deal of comfort in knowing that she is truly "caring" for me and my eyes. I was taken aback when I got a personal email from Dr. Giedd earlier this year. Talk about going the extra mile!! And I can't say enough about Jay! I'm one of those people who is never confident in how a pair of glasses looks on me. Jay gives me advice without being pushy, and whenever I take his advice (which is always!), I get tons of compliments on my eyewear. The location is convenient, attractive and comfortable, and they have walls and walls of stylish and affordable eyewear. For me, Eola Eyes is the complete package when it comes to eye care and eyewear!!"

--Janet S.

“Love, love, love this place! Beautiful location, decent street parking if the lot is full, gorgeous interior, a huge selection of fabulous brands, and a wonderful team ready to help you find just the right frames for your face.

A friend told me about Eola Eyes when I was new in town and exasperated by my fruitless, never-ending search for great specs. Every place I stepped in to, it seemed, had the same boring style that went out back in 2007. Seriously -- it's like they mass produced that one frame style and that's all everyone would wear. Well, not me!

Walking in the door at Eola Eyes was a breath of fresh air. Relief! Variety! BIG variety! I spent more time than I expected playing around with different shapes, colors and designers - and the staff was pleased to let me at it. I think they had just as much fun as I did. ;)

Jay has an opinion and I trust it 100% -- as should you! This guy knows his stuff! Thanks, Jay! You really are some kind of genius.

Thank you, Eola Eyes!"

--Kari O.

“Great customer service (Jenny) and Jay is very helpful; hooked me up with a great pair of Oliver Peoples glasses."

--Nadia M.

“Finding a good Doctor in any discipline is difficult task at best, but thanks to Yelp I've at least found a brilliant Optometrist!

I called Monday morning and they were kind enough to fit me in the following Wednesday afternoon. Just walking into the facility you feel like you're going to be well taken care of. The front desk treats you like a person, not a dollar sign. All their equipment is brand new, even their eye charts are on LCD screens. Their glaucoma test in the best I've ever had, no more eye dilation or air puffs. Instead just a simple device that barely touches your eye.

I highly recommend Dr. Brighid Williams, she was courteous and extremely knowledgeable. She answered all my questions about family history, contact lenses and future eye care with no hesitation.

Don't settle for an "optometrist in the box" at a strip mall, go support your Orlando small business and be much happier with your eye care!"

--Daniel D.

“Can't imagine a better optometrist in Orlando! I only wish I would have discovered them earlier. (I went through 3 different doctors before Eola Eyes.) Can't say enough for the friendliness of Dr. Williams, Jay, and the whole team at Eola Eyes. And their very cool new office space. Awesome, bright environment to choose new eyewear. Highly recommend Eola Eyes!"

--John C.

“It's been my mission this year to find health care providers that offer more than just a routine check up. A place, where you are a person instead of a number. Eola Eyes is one of those places.
They have an excellent selection of glasses and a guy standing by to give you an honest opinion so you don't walk out of there looking like a hot mess. I was introduced to Eola eyes by a friend of mine when I went to help him pick out some glasses. He was so in love with this place that I had to give it a try when it was time for my annual check up. I have been very happy with the level of care and attention ever since. I've heard a number of good things about all of the Doctors, but my personal fave is Dr. Kerry Giedd, She is always friendly and happy to see me, and has an excellent mix of professionalism and personal attention."

--Tishka M.

“Great office, staff and service! Dr. Williams is friendly and helpful. Got a cute pair of glasses at a good price."

--Courdy C.

I have been a patient for a while with Eola Eyes and I love the new location. It is trendy has a very professional staff and Dr Williams is great. I felt well informed and their selection of frames and glasses is extensive. I will recommend them to all my friends. Keep up the good work!"

--Darnell L.

My experience at Eola Eyes has always been wonderful! The new location is extremely convenient if you live or work near the downtown Orlando area. In addition, not only is the new location very chic but it is clean and the selection of frames is very broad. The staff has always been friendly, helpful and organized. Dr Giedd is always thorough, has may options for appointment times and ensures that you have all your questions answered regarding your exam and products. I wouldn't recommend any other location in Orlando!"

--Kristi S.

My family and I are long time patients of Dr. Giedd's. We are fortunate to have such a thorough and understanding eye doctor, since everyone in our family has challanging eye issues. The friendly and knowledgeable Eola Eyes staff makes you feel very comfortable when you are there. We always recommend Eola Eyes when asked about our vision care."

--Melissa G.

“Been coming here for years - LOVE Dr. Giedd! She is awesome - very good doctor, very professional AND down to earth. The practice is fabulous - they have the coolest frames in town. Jay can just look at your face and suggest a pair of glasses that look great on. I recommend them to anyone who needs glasses and even those who just want some different styles for their eyes. Eola Eyes is THE place!"

--Google Reviewer

“I have been going to Dr. Geidd and Eola Eyes for 8 years! I won't go anyplace else.... The staff is very friendly and Jay has helped me on numerous occasions for an adjustment of my glasses... There are so many chic frames to choose from, I have a hard time selecting but always find the perfect ones. I highly recommend Eola Eyes to anyone looking for that unique, one-of-a kind frame, and, of course, the best customer service you can find :)"

“Just had my first appointment yesterday and it was amazing! The whole team was so nice and professional.

Thanks Kerry and staff!"

“Fantastic people! My entire family goes to Dr. Williams and she is great, especially with our daughters (ages 8 and 12). Jay, the "Master of Glasses," is also excellent. He takes time helping you find the best pair of glasses for your face and even cleans and adjusts all of our glasses whenever we need it. The doctors and staff are all competent, extremely friendly and all around wonderful people.”

“Dr. Williams is amazing. I tried for years to find the right contacts and she was able to fit me perfectly after one visit. I will never go to another eye doctor. She has a patient for life.”

--Leslie I.

“The staff at Eola Eyes has become like a family over the past six years that I've been receiving their services. The front staff is incredibly helpful in picking out frames that are flattering and within my budget, while the doctors are extremely knowledgeable and professional. I recommend Eola Eyes to all of my friends looking for excellent eye care!”

--Emily S.

“I have been a patient of Dr Kerry Giedd for over three years. She has provided the highest quality care for my annual eye exams and contact prescription. Being of an age when I started needing reading glasses, Dr Giedd helped me adjust my contacts so that I can see distance and read without glasses. My most recent visit was at Eola Eye's new location. The design was outstanding both for atmosphere and function.”

--Laura C.

“I have been wearing glasses since I was a child - I am now 51. Needless to say, I have gone through many a doctor and many pairs of glasses. I can't say however, that I EVER received the sort of attention and service that I was provided at Eola Eyes. Dr. Williams was thorough, and she explained everything. Jay was amazing - he took measurements that I had never even knew existed to ensure my glasses were perfect. And once I received my glasses, I couldn't believe the comfort and clarity - they've been the best glasses I've ever owned. I didn't realize there could be such a difference. Also, Eola Eyes offers extremely flexible office hours so you don't have to leave work. I fully recommend to anyone looking for superior service and eyewear to make an appointment at Eola Eyes. You'll be glad you did!”

“This is a great little optometrist and eyeglass place right in the middle of downtown. I've been there several times so far, and they've been incredibly nice, patient, and competent for every visit. The doctors are knowledgeable, friendly, and never seem to want to rush you out the door. The guy in charge of their showroom is very dedicated and knows what looks good - also, when I had an issue with a new pair of lenses, he replaced them not once, but twice, free of charge. Basically, the vibe you get from this place is very professional and trendy. It's got a great feel to it and a great staff. If you live downtown and need an eye doctor or a stylish new pair of glasses, this is a great place to go.”

“Our family has received great service from Eola Eyes. I especially appreciate the way I have been able to bring in my oddball frames that I have found all over the US, and they are happy to fix me up with new glass. Not too many eye care facilities are happy to do that.”

--Linda W.

“I have had nothing but excellent eye care and compassionate service from everyone at Eola Eyes. Dr. Beedle is very attentive to my particular situations and when I need additional care, she sees that I get the best available, immediately, and follows up to be sure all went well. I feel I am truly in good hands at Eola Eyes. I have recommended your services and also got rave reviews. You are the BEST! Thank you.”

“I started seeing Dr. Williams at Eola Eyes when I turned 40. At that time, I had never had any problems with my eyesight so I knew that age was coming into play. Dr. Williams and the entire staff at Eola Eyes made me very comfortable and were all very understanding of the shock that comes to a person who has never needed glasses. Their explanation of the conditions present in my eyes helped me understand what was happening and their guidance in the selection of frames (while staying in budget) was invaluable. I have been a patient there for almost 5 years now as they always make me feel welcome and comfortable.”

“I prefer Brighid Williams, of Eola Eyes, over all other eye doctors I have had because she keeps up with the latest medical information, uses the latest equipment, and answers all of my questions.”

--Barbara B.

“On my first visit to Eola Eyes, I was pleasantly surprised by the staff and doctors! They were all "super" friendly and it didn't seem to be contrived at all. The office reminded me of the ENT's office I used to visit as a little girl: I felt that I would receive excellent care, and I felt safe there. Can't wait until the next visit.”

--Priscilla R.

“I followed Dr. Beedle from her former practice to Eola Eyes and could not be happier. Dr. Beedle's excellent and thorough care is now combined with a very pleasant, service-oriented staff, who could not be more helpful. The office atmosphere is professional, yet warm and personable. I would highly recommend Eola Eyes and Dr. Beedle.”

--Toni H.

“Eola Eyes is a great place to go and receive quality eye care from highly trained doctors. My doctor is great and always has a great personality. The staff at Eola Eyes are wonderful and the atmosphere is always enjoyable. I would recommend anyone looking for a great place to get their eyes examined to check out Eola Eyes.”

--Bobby N.

“I've been to so many opticians in my 20 years of living in Orlando that it's ridiculous. I have a very high prescription and astigmatism and never had a decent pair of contacts or glasses until I met Dr. Giedd. She really cares about her patients and their vision needs.”

“This is a great eye doctor for your family. They are patient with adults as well as children. They are also flexible with scheduling. I recommend this eye doctor for annual exams and glaucoma tests. Nobody in my family has glasses so I am not sure how that service would be. Based upon the staff and experience, I would assume that service would be great too!”

--Alicia L. on Insiderpages

“The staff at Eola Eyes are consumate professionals as well as some of the most patient people our family has ever seen (literally). Both of the Doctors are top notch. The patience level this team showed when examining our children was beyond expectations. They will do their best to help fit your needs with your insurance plans, and always with respect and courtesy. We would recommend anyone needing eye exams or glasses to seek out Eola Eyes team. It is one appointment we look forward to attending. Thank You.”

--Susan M.

“A friend of mine recommended this place and it is just awesome. It is located right off Jackson Street and looks like its situated in what was a little house. The staff there is great. Jay Maxwell is the best. Dr Williams is great. I always have a pleasant experience here, full eye exam and great selection of in style eyewear. I highly recommend this eye doctor's office if you are looking for someone who you can easily talk to and feel like you are among old friends when you visit."

--Janell W. on Insiderpages

“This place is super friendly and very downtown Orlando neighborhood oriented. In the heart of downtown, they have a variety of glasses (some really expensive, some affordable) and a staff that is very friendly. The doctor I saw was excellent, too. Highly recommended.”

“Eola Eyes is a nice little place smack dab in the middle of downtown Orlando. I’ve used them for a couple of years, now (need new glasses yearly). My insurance plan is covered. I will use them again."
