Our Reviews

Such a nice store with a good collection of specs. Customer service is really good. Specially Minoska is great. She gives you ample and patiently shows different frames/glasses and explains every option in detail. They also don't trick you to purchase unnecessary add-ons and stuff. However, this store is not for anyone looking for glasses as cheap as Walmart. You get what you pay for. P.S. I have not used their eye care services, perhaps next time.

This is my first visit to this office due to my only pair of glasses breaking, and my mind was blown. I have never encountered such a nice staff there first goal was to make me feel comfortable.. which they did. They made the whole process go smoothly from paperwork, to payment, to appointment setup just all of it. Dr. Carter is extremely patient, and more importantly knowledgeable at her craft, but what made the difference for me is she has a great attitude, and is very personable. Willing to take the extra steps, but could say that about everyone that works there. This is a must go if you are in the need for glasses or contacts or if you just want to visit I'm sure they wouldn't mind lol. Highly recommend to everyone.
