Dr. Howard made it a quick, thorough, and fun experience

I had been putting off going to an eye doctor for my vision issues the way most people put off going to the dentist. (definitely in denial about aging) Eye Care Plus and Dr. Howard made it a quick, thorough, and fun experience. The staff was all really great and...

They had both my glasses ready in 20 minutes

Honestly stumbled upon this great little shop by accident and couldn't be more happy I did! The ladies at the front desk were very sweet and the gentleman who helped me with all the different frames was very helpful. They actually had a much better assortment then anywhere else I have looked...

Dr. Robert Howard is the best in San Diego

I have to share my great impression of Dr. Robert Howard and the assistants at his office in San Diego. I have worn contacts and glasses for many years, but only Dr. Howard could help me get a pair that really felt comfortable for all day wear. My red and itchy eyes...

I wouldn’t go anywhere else

When you've been wearing contacts and glasses as long as I have (20+ years) you are pretty quick to realize when you've found a great eyecare office. I found Dr. Howard in 1995 and I wouldn't go anywhere else. He has a great group of assistants, a good selection of glasses to...

I’ve been relying on Dr. Howard for my eye care for 21 years

I've been relying on Dr. Howard for my eye care for 21 years, since attending college in San Diego; even after moving to Orange county 15 years ago. My wife and 7 and 9 year old boys all go with me now! He has always updated his equipment to provide for a state of the...

I had never been able to wear contact lenses until Dr. Howard

I have a difficult prescription and I had never been able to wear contact lenses until a friend recommended Dr. Howard. I went to his beautiful office in Kearney Mesa and I was immediately impressed with the huge selection of eyewear, and the very caring staff. Dr.Howard took a lot of time with my exam, and made sure...

I am SO happy I found this gem!

I came in my first time a few months ago because I saw the $69 special for frames and lenses. When I arrived, they were SO welcoming. I called and had my prescription sent right over, no hassle! They have a nice selection of affordable frames for any look as...
- Krystle T. San Diego CA

They were truly amazing.

I have to admit I was skeptical that this could be as good as the reviews said. Every other eye doctor I've seen always seemed expensive and slow to make the glasses. I am very pleased to say that Dr. Howard was as wonderful as reviews say and I walked...

Super friendly staff and eye doctor.

Super friendly staff and eye doctor. Tucked into a strip mall next to the Nissan Dealership. Very agreeable staff who understood that people may want to order online these pressure to buy frames....

Can I PLEASE give more than five stars!!!

Can I PLEASE give more than five stars!!? Toya was AMAZING. I found this place on Google, looking for eye exam specials. They're friendly, fast and VERY accommodating. I WILL be bringing our three teenagers here. They even gave me two pairs of contacts ON THE SPOT to take with...
