Patient Testimonials

Great experience, everything went as expected, front desk personnel was pleasant, everyone that saw me explained everything before they did what they were going to do. They get it, great customer service, I recommend them.

- Andrew J.
This is my fourth time in the past three years that I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Alice Chen. I have had optometry services for 50 years now, and I believe Dr. Chen and the whole staff at Citilight are the best I've experienced. When I called to make the appt., the receptionist pulled my record within seconds, so I didn't have to go through my history, past appointments (the most recent almost a year ago), or navigate insurance bureaucracy at all -- and when I appeared in person, I was immediately taken to the exam room and saw Dr. Chen within minutes of arriving. What an pure joy! I wish all my healthcare appointments were as smooth and efficient. Dr. Chen is focused, clear in her explanations (though my situation is complicated), and compassionate in her very human interaction with me, especially today when I was fearful about the prospects for my eye health. I am so grateful and very impressed with the Citilights.

Q&A With Dr. Chen

Eye Allergies

What Causes Eye Allergies

Many allergens (substances that can evoke an allergic response) are in the air, where they come in contact with your eyes and nose. Airborne allergens include pollen, mold, dust and pet dander. Other causes of allergies, such as certain foods or bee stings, do not typically affect the eyes the way airborne allergens do. Adverse reactions to certain cosmetics or drugs such as antibiotic eyedrops also may cause eye allergies.
