Bryce Jones

Dr Ivie is awesome. he found out that my daughter needed to wear glasses to correct an issue with her ability to focus at distance. Was appreciative that he took the time to listen to her and us and find the right solution for her!!! Great place!!

Maria Birch

Dr.Ivie is amazing. He is always learning about the newest products to help his patients. My daughter has been begging for contacts. So we went to Dr.Ivie and he hooked us up with a hard contact she wears at night. This contact correct the shape of the eye therefor correcting her vision to 20/20 for 24 hrs. So durning the day she is free of glasses and contacts!! There are many other positive benefits to this for children. So thanks Dr.Ivie for taking the time to help my daughter!!

Lacy Barney

I have been going to family vision for about 5 years. I really like their small welcoming office. There was a mistake on my account a few years ago and they were quick to fix it to keep my family as patients. Dr Ivie is very friendly, knowledgeable, and great with my 3 small children.

Sarah Bennett

Our entire family has been going to Dr. Ivie for 5 years. His eye exams are thorough and he's confident in his profession. We've always enjoyed the office staff who are friendly and helpful. We tried other eye doctors in the area, but Dr. Ivie was definitely the right fit for my family!

AnnaMaria Rice

Love you guys. Every time we come in it is a joy.

Barry Bame

Jared is a great doctor and a great guy. He takes time to talk and explain thing to you. The staff was very helpful with a warranty item as well.

Davin Garlick

Dr. Ivie is great! Fantastic services and friendly staff.

Brian Bogdon

The most incompetent reception staff I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. My wife called to make an appointment and provided vision insurance info to be sure they excepted it before taking 2 hours off work to make the 3 hour round trip drive. They confirmed they did in fact take Federal Blue Cross insurance. Upon arrival my wife was informed that they apparently don't take all federal blue cross and it's apparently the customer's responsibility to know which ones they do and don't take. Needless to say, trying to explain how unacceptable that was only gets thrown back as being your fault that you don't know which Federal Blue Cross vision plans they actually accept. I can only hope their doctors are more competent. Be careful INL, you may not have the correct Blue Cross either. I feel sorry for anybody that will, no doubt, go through this here. And don't forget, it's your fault that you don't know what insurance they take!!! One star is way to gracious!

Micahlyn Pett

Such a friendly atmosphere, great doctors and service!


Excellent and professional

Melissa Briggs

Dr. Ivie is AMAZING! My kids think going to the eye doctor is fun. He is very kind and patient and you can tell he truly cares. My previous eye doctor seemed frustrated and impatient when I didn't like my contacts, but Dr. Ivie is willing to change my contacts and try to find something that works and is comfortable- he helped me to find contacts that work great for my picky eyes.


Ryan Lewis

They are always friendly and helpful and have been very good at having available appointments to meet my schedule.

Dr Ivie and his staff are great. I love that they have appointments you can schedule for Wednesday evenings. Dr Ivie is easy and fun to talk to. He doesn’t rush you if you have questions. Dr Ivie and his staff let you know what they are doing and what the tests are all about.

Charles Finance

We had an emergency referral from our regular doctor to see Dr. Ivie at Family Vision. They took us in the same morning without fuss. Dr. Ivie was excellent at his exam, explanations and in-office treatment. We've found our regular optometrist now for future glasses and other eye needs.

Chelsea Lundquist

I love Family Vision! I will never go anywhere else! Jared is very good at what he does! He is the kindest most genuine eye doctor I know. He makes us feel like we are the most important patients and has helped my husband out with multiple eye emergency’s. The staff at family vision is so great to work with. Very kind and professional! I highly recommend Family vision.

Benjamin Lundquist

I took my 10 yo daughter to see Dr. Oswald. He was great! Very nice and works well with kids.

Monique Stimpson

Love the staff, they go above and beyond.

Samantha Worthen

The only reason we are even giving one star is because we weren't given a choice to leave none. My husband called in and spoke to the receptionist on the phone when he made the appointment, he told her his insurance provider and was told there wouldn't be any fee, his insurance would cover it all. So we made the appointment, paid $30 for a babysitter for our kids for the day so he could make it in, and he drove down from Blackfoot. Once he got there the receptionist told him that some policies had changed with his insurance in January and there was normally a $120.00 fee he would have to pay, but since they had told him on the phone it would be free she was going to apply some discounts to lower it to a $20 copay, plus the fee for his contacts, he agreed with that and signed the forms for his insurance. After the appointment they charged him $80 and he still has to pay for his contacts. I called the office to talk to the lady to try and work something out they lied to me and told me my husband was fully aware of the fees and signed a form, but as I previously stated, he was told she was going to only charge him the $20 copay and took her word. I am super disappointed in this office, we thought the awesome reviews and "Family" name meant they were a reputable company, but we will not be returning and in our opinion it is a waste of time to go there. I did not appreciate the way the receptionist treated me in our call either, she was rude and accused my husband of being a liar. We had priced out other offices and would have chosen one more affordable had we known this was how we would be treated.

I love going to see Dr Ivie. He is very friendly, professional and answers every question that I have. I had Lasik surgery in March 2016 and he was so great with all my follow up/after care. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Highly recommend Family Vision Associates to anyone!

Witte x7

My family has been going here for years and the time, attention, and personal attention makes eye care a little less scary.

Jana Sorensen

My kids enjoy going to see Dr. Ivie. I enjoy being able to see friendly faces when I walk on the office. Very kind, respectful, and knowledgeable for the treatment which has varied for each of my kids.

Sheila Klaass

Our family loves Family Vision Associates! They are always so accommodating to our busy schedule. Great service!

heidi jensen

Paula Naegele

We love Family Vision!!

Eden Bench

Great place! Family friendly, happy, peaceful, and they are great to work with. They want to help you and make sure everything is clear. Thank you Family Vision!☺️

Betty H

I ansolutely *love* Dr. Ivie at Family Vision Associates in Idaho Falls. I have somewhat of a complicated case, but he has been so dedicated to finding the right course for me. As an uninsured person I was pleasantly surprised with how affordable it was given how many times I had to be seen. The front office was also really sweet and helped me learn to apply my new contact with patience and helpful tips. They are always very prompt and return calls quickly. I would absolutely recommend them to a friend! Thanks y'all!

Leslie Hill

Dr. Ivie is the best! He is very thorough and takes the time to get things right and is an overall kind and friendly guy.

Richard Stewart

They were very Friendly and made sure that I had the right contacts lens. I have been to many contact places. They were by far the best.

Christopher Kerns

We love this place. The entire staff is really friendly and very helpful. They are very knowledgeable about different insurance plans and can intelligently discuss covered elligibilities as well as realistic financial options. The doctor we worked with is amazing and makes you feel like family. I had a laundry list of what were probably considered silly or obvious questions about contacts for kids and they took the time with me over the phone to explain it. Ive never felt connected to any optometrist practice but this is truly a Family Vision Center.

Russ Mewes

I am at the point where I am needing reading glasses. Family Vision Associates were extremely helpful into figuring out which option would be best for me. I tried just the $5 readers from Walmart and Family Vision explained why they were not working out for me.

Cecilia M

I moved into town and I was looking for a new place. When I called the front staff was super nice and found a time that worked well for me. Upon arrival, again the staff was friendly and answered all my questions and made me feel welcomed. Dr. Ivie has a great bedside manner and you can tell he is very knowledgeable and enjoys educating during his exam. He recommended the best contacts for me since they don't carry the ones I had previously. I'm so happy I found such a great place and I highly recommend FVA!!!!

Chase Johnson

They have a great selection of glasses and they are always willing to answer any questions that I may have.

Jacinta Aljasim

UPDATE: I went there again for another appointment and another lady was hired that was so nice and that lady that was rude before was much nicer. Still love Dr. Ivie. Great doctor! I'm only giving 2 stars because Dr. Ivie is such a wonderful doctor, however, the blonde woman that does all the glasses ordering and fitting is rude and acts like she hates her job and dealing with people in general. That was my experience and I called back and spoke to the office manager and she apologized and told me that she would speak to the woman about it and that the woman was stressed out, but that is no excuse. I went back when I was called to pick up my son's glasses that came in and the office manager fitted my son in his new glasses at the receptionist counter. Did not even take us into the glasses section to properly fit him into his new glasses and we left with his glasses still crooked on his face. The tension in that office was so uncomfortable and that blonde heavyset woman who was so nasty to us was with customers but was peering at us. Terrible customer service! So embarrassing for Dr. Ivie! I will not be going there anymore!

Jessica Knoelk

My son has high functioning autism and the folks here worked well with him to get the glasses he needed. Very impressed!

Travis Dallimore

I have been going to Dr. Ivie for a while now and I really like his office. They do a great job. He is a good Dr. that knows what he is talking about

My kids and I have been going to Dr. Ivie for years. I have always liked him as a doctor. I have had issues with billing but it has been taken care of. I have never gotten glasses there because of their prices. When I saw the new doctor Dr. Oswald, he suggested I change my prescription. I looked at some glasses and got a quote for the cost. I told her I would compare pricing at other places. A week later I went in to get a brochure on a new eye drop and looked again at glasses. I picked the same ones I picked the first time. I told her I would go ahead and order them. the amount came to be almost 25.00 more but she said she couldn't figure out why. I called them back less than 24 hours later to cancel and was told I couldn't cancel. At no point was I ever told there were NO cancellations. The only thing I was told is it takes 7-10 business days. When I called the office manager she told me too bad so sad. I was responsible for the full amount regardless. Not too happy about the customer service. while writing this, i got a voicemail saying they were able to cancel my order. Funny how when you tell them you are not going to pay for them they find a way to cancel. The doctors on the other hand are great!

Jessica Keck

Such a family friendly environment. Doctor Ivie was genuinely kind and very helpful, as was the rest of his staff. I would recommend them to anyone!

,Warren Hill

They do such a great job here

Becky Wessel

Dr. Jared Ivie is outstanding. He is fantastic with kids, and really knows his stuff. His office carries eyewear that fairly priced and has great warranties. I trust him with my family's vision care. We've been going to him for over 5 years now. His office staff is super friendly and very helpful. The office itself is always clean and tidy.

Lynn Schwendiman

Dr. Ivie and his staff are very helpful and accommodating to my personal vision needs. The service is excellent and Dr. Ivie is very knowledgeable and friendly.

Heather Huntsman

I have been wearing glasses for 30 years, and have been to many eye doctors. Family Vision is EASILY the most friendly office I have ever set foot in - starting with the person who answered the phone when I called to make an appointment, continuing with the pre-exam tests, the eye doctor himself, the (immensely patient) person who helped me pick frames - just every single person in the office is friendly. You can also tell that they know what they're doing, and that they take the time to make sure they do it right - AND they make sure that you as a patient understand what they're doing as well. After several offices that missed parts of my vision that I knew needed help, and that just wanted me back out their doors as soon as possible, Family Vision was an incredibly refreshing experience. I will definitely be going back to them for all of my optometry needs!

Benjamin Egbert

When my kids eye doctor retired we searched all over Southeast Idaho and found Family Vision Associates. They have been excellent to work with. I have five kids, 3 of which require regular visits to the eye doctor, and they all have had great experiences with Dr. Ivie and his crew.
