Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Eye Doctors and Optometrists Award Winner: Oro Valley Eyecare

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that, due to their wonderful 97.83 Rating Score™, Oro Valley Eyecare is an award-winning optometrist in Arizona.

With a patient-centered approach to eye care, Oro Valley Eyecare is the leading provider for people in the Oro Valley area looking for trustworthy, compassionate optometry services.

Oro Valley Eyecare’s approach to patient care has helped them earn more than 1,000 positive reviews across multiple verified sites, a Rating Score that any company would envy and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for the top eye doctors and optometrists in Arizona. Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that helped them get there:

“All of the team here, from the doctors to the front office staff, are extremely skilled in their roles. Start to finish, they are there for you and even after that. They frequently make themselves available for eyeglass adjustments and any questions ANYONE may have. I can assure you, you won’t find a better eye-care experience in this area! Superb service with a great selection of eyewear. P.S. Dr. M is excellent with children.” – Laura P

Not Your Average Optometrist

Oro Valley Eyecare has a commitment to providing a level of care that’s second to none, and that dedication has helped them make a name for themselves as a different kind of eye care clinic. Every member of the staff is trained as either an optician or an optometrist, ensuring that, no matter who you ask, the staff will always be able to explain the science behind your treatment. They also work hand-in-hand with their lab to ensure timely, accurate test results.

Another thing that sets Oro Valley Eyecare apart is that they want their staff to be as educated as possible about which products they recommend to their patients. When a new product comes out, the entire staff will get vouchers so that they can try it and relay the best possible information to their patients.

When asked why she does what she does, optician, Laura Zapolski, had this to say:

“Personal experience of having bad vision got me interested in optometry in the 90s. The more I worked, the more I wanted to learn! When I started, I worked for a private practice in Long Island, and my doctor there was great. I took some time off to start a family, then worked at a corporate optical company that I hated! I had a friend refer me over to Dr. Mitchell, and he really cares to know who I am as a person. I’ve told him that I am retiring with him.”

Building Success Through Genuine, Compassionate Care

According to Laura, Oro Valley Eyecare’s strong online reputation and good reviews are a result of the great work done by the doctors and staff, as well as the requests they send for reviews after their patients’ appointments. They also acquire new patients by offering free minor repairs and adjustments for anyone who needs them — not just for current patients. Another way they drum up business is by holding functions where vendors can come in and offer their patients discounts on their frames.

When asked what advice she had for other businesses looking to grow and build their online reputation, Laura had this to say:

“You have to genuinely care and enjoy what you do. If you don’t, you shouldn’t be doing it. Doing a job for a check is not worth it. Go to work, enjoy what you do and enjoy helping people!”


Thank you so much, Laura, for taking the time to share your wisdom with us. And congratulations to the team at Oro Valley Eyecare for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!
