Dr. Torres is he best! He genuinely cares about his patients' eye health. He listens carefully and answers questions thoughtfully. The staff are also the best! They make sure that before you walk out the door with new glasses that they meet your expectations for fit and welcome you back for an adjustment if necessary. As a patient for more than 25 years, I depend on Dr.Torres and his staff and know they will be available if needed!
I have been going to Eye Carumba Optometry for quite a while now because of Dr. Joseph Torres. I must say that every appointment is a pleasant experience because he is very Knowledgeable about his craft and really professional but at the same time, very friendly and easy to talk to. The staff are incredibly nice as well especially Trevor who helps out happily with all of his suggestions and makes it incredibly easy for me to decide on what frames or color of lens to choose ( mind you it’s not easy because they have a lot of collections to choose from).
Love Eye Carumba Optometry! I’ve been going here for many, many years and everyone is wonderful from the doctors to the front desk staff. I am really particular about my eye care and was recommended to this place from a coworker. If you are looking for a new optometrist, definitely try this place out. I used to see Dr. Yeh but now I see Dr. Pham — both are terrific. Dr. Pham is really knowledgeable and we had a fun time chatting about my vision and he helped educate me on what is going on. I can’t see myself going to any other optometrist!
I have been a patient of Dr. Torres for over 20 years. Of all the doctors I have seen in my life, he is by far my absolute favorite. I look forward to my eye exams. He is kind, knowledgeable, careful, and thorough. My teen had been told for years that she has better than 20/20 vision, yet struggled with reading and said her eyes would “blur out.” Dr. Torres knew exactly what test to administer and was able to diagnose and fix the problem. The entire team and staff at Eye Carumba are a delight.
