You ever had the experience of walking into a business, and feeling pretty uplifted and happy when you leave?

That’s the feeling you get when you visit EyeSite. Although I’ve seen some other reviews indicating an unfriendly “receptionist”, that is far from the truth today.

Robert Messinger is a very friendly and sarcastic kind of guy. Quite helpful & fun. Not sure if he’s that way because he’s laughing his way to the bank or not, but who cares! His assistant was courteous, informative and more than willing. To help, that is. With other optical locations closing, your choices are dwindling. I’d rather go someplace I enjoy.

This location has been an eye center since 1927.

Here’s the friendly staff:

Recently went back for my annual exam with Dr. Rob Messinger- was impressed again by how thorough he was – AND he kept me laughing the whole time! I had been worried about some spots or floaters I had- he was able to put my mind at ease about them. PHEW!

Also got great Dior sunglasses at about HALF of what I saw them for in the city. AND got a refill on my contacts for same as that online contacts place.

All in all, great experience. He finall got his website online, too-



Can I just say that Dr. Messinger is the best! Just moved up to Hoboken a few months ago and pretty pensive about going to a new eye doctor. Actually went to EyeSite based on recommendations from Hoboken 411 (didn’t hurt that he took my insurance). What a guy! Friendly, funny, makes you feel totally at ease but at the same time answers all your questions seriously.

The receptionist was ok — didn’t really interact with her too much. But go to EyeSite and see Dr. Messinger — when was the last time you had fun going to the doctor?


Anyone know their hours?


Maybe you found this info out already but he is open M, Tu and Friday 9:30-6; Thursday late until 8:00 pm, and Sat 9-1:00 (except July & August). He is closed Wednesday when he devotes time to patients at the Helen Keller Institute for the Blind in Brooklyn!

Great guy, and GREAT prices on contacts- most seem about the same as 1-800-CONTACTS. Nice frame selection, too.

I’ve been going to Bob for about 8 years. I trust him with my eyes, period. He always tells the same corny jokes but you know what, that’s OK. Good person.


[quote comment=”99794″]Doc is a wonderful guy. He always goes out of his way to help you if you need something.
He is always very charming, and same with his staff. His glasses are very stylish and he is always available to answer questions.
I have been his patient for over 17 years and I recommend him more than any other optometrist in Hoboken.

He’s wonderful.
Believe me-
I live with the guy.[/quote]

Yeah I got my last pair of glasses here a few months ago based on my initial post experience. Very happy with the the results.

And I don’t live with the guy or know him other than the 2 times I have been there
