Dr, Fredric Smilen is an excellent optometrist. He is soft spoken, intelligent, kind and patient. I so very highly recommend him, In Stamford, CT at his 80 Mill River address, you will receive only the best care,

I have found my experience at this office to be always and genuinely good. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. Dr SmiIlen's office provides exceptional service with the conscientiousness of a very professional demeanor. I like him as a person and I trust him. And the fact that he speaks Spanish better than I is of absolute delight to me. "When you're Smilen. Oh when you're Smilen. The whole world smiles with you." So true.
