What Our Customers Are Saying
RATE FIVE STARS ! Come to this office! Fast! Nice! The girl that helped me her name was justina she was so good . I thought oh no it’s going to take forever because she was by herself but no she got me and others checked in, did our exams she was so calm and well put together very polite and sweet .she didn’t act like she was in a hurry or rushing she made me feel like I was the only one their and it’ was all about me she taught me how to put my contacts in and how to take care of them she sat down looked me in the eyes was very direct on what to do . I then went up front and Jacob helped me same thing with him he was alone and had so many others but he showed me around got me checked out and was very sweet. Him and Justina both did my insurance and took the time to explain my benefits and answer all my questions . I would of thought because of how short staffed and busy it was they would be running around like a chicken with their head cut off or rude and rushing . But they weren’t. I give this office a FIVE STAR! And I will come back in two years and also continue ordering my contacts from here . This is my first time in contacts and I want to cry because I can see and show off my eyes . THANK YOU STANTON OPTICAL !!!!!!! And Justina and Jacob!

I went in for an eye exam and two pairs of glasses because I saw the sign. I had a great experience- they gave me an exam and got my glasses ready for pick up within all within a 90 minute stay. It’s worth noting that I was helped by Justine who was fun to talk to, knowledgeable, and pretty darn cute. I’ll be back when it’s time to get my eyes checked again.

Wow! Fast, easy and affordable. I didn't have an appointment, came in at 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon and I'm leaving at 3:00 with two brand new pairs of glasses, after an exam and all. I even saved $479 with a free exam and buy one get one free discount. Great deal and friendly staff! Thanks guys, Rodney and Gina especially!

My wife Sharla and I had a great experience at this location. I don’t know why the comments by some people are so angry, but I just want to say that Jacob was great, although the did admit he was rather new. He went out of his way to make sure everything was the way I wanted it, because I had 2 pairs that were each rather different and tricky. One pair was for work, just for the computer work I perform all day, and another pair for my everyday use. The price was great, and Gina, helped with the coupon we needed to use, and also helped double check to make sure everything was right. Because of Jacob and Gina (and Amanda, too!) we purchased 2 pairs for my wife, and 2 pairs for myself, yesterday. And on top of it, they stayed after closing to finalize the order, not something many retailers do nowadays. Thanks, guys!

I was pleasantly surprised. The entire staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I had made an appointment online, and they efficiently got me taken care of. From what I saw, they do take walk-ins, as time permits. I ended up purchasing 3 pairs of glasses... They have awesome prices! While they tell you that it is not a "complete eye health exam", they did test for cataracts, astigmatism, and other issues, and can inform you of potential problems with your eye health. They found out that I have very small cataracts in one eye, but at the same time, the optometrist put my mind at ease by informing me that treatment (when it becomes necessary, which it isn't yet) is routine. Thank you employees of Stanton!

I walked in to see if someone could help me with a pair of Coach sunglasses I had purchased online. I was fortunate enough to be helped by Kelly. She adjusted my glasses with the most professional and polite attitude even though I did not purchase them from Stanton. Because of Kelly going out of her way to help me, I would recommend this business to any of my friends needing their services. Thank you so much, Kelly!

I needed glasses for over 10 years . Finally decided to get new pairs. The staff here are friendly and helpful. Got my glasses same day with in a good time frame. And eye exam was free! 2 pairs for 59.00 plus tax can't beat anywhere. I'd recommend this place for all to try. I will definitely return for new glasses and or contacts.

This place is awesome. The amazing M.I.T. who helped me today was Kelly. She took the time to go over so many different pairs of glasses with me and she made sure to really find the best deal that would work with my budget. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and this company. ❤️❤️❤️

Ariela Jimenez and Eric Dodd were absolutely awesome!They were able to get me my glasses same day as well as give me the best possible deal. As a student with two jobs and being a professional athlete I utilize my glasses a ton so having two pairs for a great price is just a cherry on top!Thank you guys!

This was my first visit to Stanton optical. I stopped in to get eyeglasses not really knowing what to expect. Wow! It was the largest selection of frames that I ever seen! I had a hard time deciding., but Eric Dodd did a great job from the minute I came through the front door. He helped me choose frames and offered his advice when I was trying on different glasses. He was professional, patient, and extremely competent. I would highly recommend Eric and Stanton for a great eyeglass shopping experience!

I made a last minute appointment and was surprised with the amount of options that were available for same day appointments. Upon entering, I was greeted by enthusiastic staff, all willing to assist. The Dr. who performed the exam took his time, did not rush through the exam as I have felt at some other establishments. And Gina, the manager of the contacts/glasses department is the best! She assisted me with picking out the perfect frames! And explained how to maximize my savings options - using my insurance discounts. I was in and out (exam complete, contacts and glasses ordered) in just over an hour. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great Prices. I will return and highly recommend to everyone.

08/11/2018 - Today I returned for a second time to purchase new glasses. Again the staff was wonderful. The acting GM, Morgan was wonderful. He helped me find the perfect frames and got me back on my way in no time at all! I highly recommend coming here for not just the wonderful employees but also the huge selection of frames and best prices I’ve come across

Had a wonderful experience today 12/05. Danielle took the time to make sure we were very happy with our glasses making sure to comb through her inventory (which she knew very well) to ensure we got the right fit and style. She also worked with us to make sure we had the right price to suit our budget, going over insurance and special pricing options. I would recommend her and Stanton to anyone who needs glasses or contacts.

My 6 yr old needed glasses and after having to drive across town from our usual location on Corrales Rd due to no physical doctor, I went from irritated to extremely happy. They took great care of my daughter and made sure she was happy, despite being shorthanded and very busy. Michael McCoy was great with her and made sure mommy was happy too. Thank you for turning our day around. ????

Michael was fantastic!! He was incredibly patient and helpful. He listened to what I liked and provided me with great options. He even waited around to make sure my new glasses fit and were in tip top shape! My glasses were ready about 10 minutes after selecting. I like a larger frame and there weren’t a whole lot of options for me in the ladies section. That would be the one thing I would recommend to the company. Thank you Michael!
