    I met with Dr. Schwartz for the first time today because I needed an annual eye exam + I was having some weird visual stuff. Long story short, everything turned out to be fine but he was very gracious in dealing with my anxiety about the situation. The office is located within an eyeglasses place and is super private and easy to get in and out of. The staff was really nice as well. Great experience and this is my eye doctor moving forward.

    Just had my annual check up, have been seeing Jason for about twenty years now. Great service and good history. Why would I go anywhere else? Seven months later and an unscheduled trip to see Dr. Schwartz, i was being checked out within one hour and twenty minutes of the phone call. Awesome.

  • Great eye doctor. Very professional. Made me feel very comfortable during an eye procedure that I was very nervous about. I am definitely going back to Dr. Schwartz for any issues with my eyes.

    Really attentive and pleasant, and rather than just deal with the exam and prescription as requested, went the extra mile to discuss other options I could consider. Plus an informative briefing on my eye health as well. quick and efficient service too. And on top of all that, a nice guy! Strongly recommend him.

  • I have been a patient of Dr Jason Schwartz for 15+ years now and I am so grateful that I found him. I have secondary glaucoma so I need to come for a checkup every 6 months.
    Dr Schwartz is very knowledgeable and exceptionally good at what he does and on top of that he really truly cares about his patients. I can really recommend him!
    He also has a very friendly and efficient staff and his office is located at Clearsight South Optician where you can have your glasses made the same day!
    So for me it easy to give him 5 stars!
