Dr. Eric Chang is very professional and caring. I feared that I had a retina tear, call other optometrist in the area, all said they could get me in in 2 weeks. Dr. Chang was able to get me in the same day for an exam, and no retina tear--thank you so much.

Dr. Chang’s awesome… professional and detail oriented. He took time outside of our appointment to research and find a pediatric optometrist for my newborn.

Dr. Chang does an excellent job, the selection of frames is fantastic, and the staff is always so pleasant and helpful (the Office Manager Pat has been a staple for years, she's the absolute best there is!)... I highly recommend Issaquah Optometric Center.

Was sent to Dr. Chang by a place in Redmond. Had a lot of discomfort in my right eye that started a day before the appointment and Dr. Chang promptly identified the issue. Left the same day appointment with all my issues resolved, which super surprised me. He is a top notch doctor with a strong passion in his field. Explained many things to me and gave me lots of advice for my eyes and my wellbeing in general.

I never know that eye exam was a thing until I lost one of my glass lenses and had to get prescription for new ones. I think last time I visited an eye doctor was 6+ years ago. I came here because Costco doesn't take Kaiser and the wait is over 30 days. So I searched and find this one nearest to my house. I came without any expectation, was just here to get prescription. Thought it would be an in and out thing. But then Dr. Chang was friendly and knowledgeable, I learned A LOT from him, including getting many of my stereotype busted. I was happy with the service and satisfied with the professionalism. Will definitely refer all my Issaquah friend to him in the future.

Dr. Chang provides excellent eye care to my my husband and myself. When my husband started having some double vision problems, Dr. Chang suggested adding a prism to his eyeglass prescription. This resolved the problem! Dr. Chang takes time to explain thoroughly each procedure of your exam. We are both very confident that we are receiving the best care possible! Pat, Dr. Chang’s assistant is exceptional! She is an expert at helping to pick out the most flattering eye ware, and takes the time to make sure that they are adjusted and fit properly when you pick up your prescription. She is fun and a joy to visit with. She has been at Issaquah Optometric Center for as long as I can remember! We consider her a friend. Karen Penewell and Rich Moothart
