I went to Dr. Fares for the first time this month and she was great. She took her time with me and recommended what I should to help with my dry eyes. The optician helped me pick out great glasses and they were ready within a week. I am very happy with the services I received from Dr. Fares and her staff, I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family in Ottawa!

Worst experience ever. Staff are incompetent and the doctor actually irritated my eyes even more versus helping me find the root cause to an on going eye issue. I would suggest seeing a different optometrist if you have any eye issues. If you’re seeing Dr. Fares for a simply eye exam you should be fine.

Dr Fares is the best opto in Ottawa no contest. I have been her patient for many years and would not even consider anyone else. Recently she referred me for cataract surgery and I knew that her referral would be to an equally professional specialist. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable! Looking forward to my next checkup ;-)

I found Dr Fares very professional , competent and personable. She is extremely knowledgeable and made me feel very confident that she will take good care of my eyesight in the years to come. Its a unique medical office which is actually fun to visit. The staff members are welcoming and very good at what they do. They and Dr Fares laugh easily. Andre knows design, colour and eyewear fashion, fit and quality and he enjoys helping one choose a new set of glasses that suit ...and if one is in the mood, are adventurous and bold. Carly is the very professional front office staffer and she took care of the business of my bills, appointments and followup extremely well. Thank you all. I am a very happy and happily fashionable new patient. I much appreciate your collective efforts to deal with eye care in all its aspects in the best way possible.

I have seen a number of optometrists in Ottawa over the past 7 years, and Dr. Fares is hands-down the best! She is very easy to get along with, and her staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Andre in particular has been very helpful in addressing all of our lens-related questions and concerns!
