Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Great Dr and family staff."
    C.J Fitz
  • "I've been going to Baystate Eye Associates/Dr. Kahan yearly since 2009. He and his staff are very friendly and professional. The exams are quick but seem thorough. Dr. Kahan does like to talk about his family and sometimes takes out photos forgetting you don't have your contact lenses in, lol. Usually you can get an appointment within one to two weeks of calling.

    They also have a good selection of frames and lenses and offer referrals for LASIK to a practice in Waltham if you are a good candidate. You can buy contact lenses directly from the office or if you order from someone online I've never had a problem verifying my prescription. They also will price match contact lenses prices from other retailers if you bring in a printout of the lower price."

  • "Dr kahn is one of the best eye drs around i am completely satisfied with this business"
    Christina R.
  • "Have always been indifferent about eye exams but Bay State Eye changed my mind. Dr Kahan did the exam for my wife and I and made it very enjoyable. The staff was excellent and was happy to special order my frames and even gave my wife multiple samples of different color contacts. I have already recommended them to my friends and family, even the ones without glasses."
    DEANKALIKULUS
  • "I went with my wife for an appointment with Doc. David Kahan and we were impressed by his knowledge and the service at the place. Since the arrival in the office until the consultancy to buy new glasses, everything ran smoothly and we have all information we need. Fair price and a great service."
