Everyone was fantastic there, but McKenzie walked me thru the process and was very helpful and professional! I stopped going to my last place because the staff was not so great, but I'll be going back to Stanton for sure. Thank you

I just want to thank Marie for being a great employee and providing information when I had questions. She is very kind and lovely. Great energy to be around! Also so patient because I had to get opinions on glasses I couldn’t choose from. Definitely would recommend friends to Marie!

Just went to Stanton to get glasses for my son. Marie was so kind and patient and respectful of our decisions. My son has always had a hard time picking out glasses and she made him at ease. Thank you!

This was the best experience I’ve ever had getting glasses! I live in Valdez, AK which is a 5 hour drive from Anchorage. I’m originally from Portland, OR but have lived in Alaska for 5 years. I was overdue for contacts and an exam so I drove to Anchorage as we do not have an optometrist in Valdez. Mackenzie helped me throughout the whole process and she was such a wonderful person to work with and I felt an instant connection with her! She was actually SO wonderful that my boyfriend AND my best friend got new glasses as well! (We drove up together to get supplies for our business and new glasses were not even on their radar) all 3 of us - with Mackenzies help - picked such awesome frames and we were all able to pick them up same day. We are so so grateful for Mackenzie and her keen eye. Stanton should feel lucky to have her, she is very very good at what she does! Thank you Mackenzie! We will see you next year! - Natalie, Nat and Alec

I went and got contacts and glasses there. The exam was quick and easy, and the ladies working there were absolutely fantastic. They even held my baby so I could put my contacts in. Mackenzie is the sales manager and she personally stayed late to help me find the perfect pair of glasses and gave honest feedback. I used to go to a private eye doctor in eagle river, but now I’m sending my husband here as well. The price is unbeatable even without insurance, and the staff are fantastic. My prescription is perfect and I haven’t seen better in years!

My eyes have been getting worse and needed to upgrade from the cheaters I was using. Got my exam done right away. Took my time checking out the extensive frame options to find a couple pair I liked. Sarah and Andria were very helpful and walked me through all the options available to meet my specific needs and wants.

After reading the reviews I can understand where people are coming from. I went in with an appointment and didn't get in for my exam for a good amount of time. All in all I spent around 2 and a half hours at the store. Luckily Mackenzie helped out and got things situated with my glass's. I was fairly happy when I left with what I got but will be going back to get my glass's soon and will be able to tell how they turned out.Was very pleased with the customer service and help that was provided just was a little on the long side of time spent there.

Was able to go in as a walk in two days ago and was seen for an eye exam Immediately, the staff were very helpful and kind in assisting me with making my first glasses purchase on my own, and they had the pair I chose ready to go with my new prescription lenses within 20 Minutes of picking them out! I've been getting so many compliments on my glasses, they have a huge selection to try on in store, fitting for many budgets. Was an easy and pleasant experience and I couldn't recommend them enough honestly.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED MY VISIT AT STANTON OPTICAL! 😍 There was a bit of mix up with what my option of frames were, but it got resolved by the next day. We were in Anchorage with our kids Christmas shopping, so I went ahead and made an appointment. 2 pair of glasses🤓 for $59 and a free eye exam, WOW. I Linda hadn't been to an eye doctor for MANY YEARS, if I had to make a guess, I would say 30+ years.We got into town, had lunch then went for my appointment. I got right in, had my eye exam and was done within 20-30 minutes. I needed glasses, so the lady took me over to the frames and pointed to the ones I could choose from. I thought it was whole area on the wall, because the advertisement said 1000's of frames to choose from. I choose my frames, got them rang up, to realize the frames I choose wasn't in the choices of the advertisement. The choices were just 2 rows of ugly plastic frames. I completely misunderstood, maybe because it wasn't explained correctly to me!Got it figured out, decided we would pay the extra for the frames because there wasn't any I liked in the 2 rows I was able to choose from. Left the store, went and did our shopping, then came back a few hours later. They got my glasses and fitted them to me, one of the pair had a broken frame, PRAISE JESUS, the lady noticed it. I took the one pair, which were reading glasses, then when we got to the van, my husband was looking over the order. He realized I had only reading glasses and they were costing me $300 and some odd dollars, for reading glasses. I immediately called them back, explained my issue and it was taken care off by the store manager McKenzie! She is AMAZING and very professional. She got my pair of glasses that needed the new frame and changed them to my every day glasses. She then gave me some discounts, to meet my needs, and said they would be shipped to me. I was HAPPY & VERY PLEASED with how McKenzie went the extra mile to give me COMPLETE customer satisfaction...She is the best. I would definitely go back to Stanton Optical for my future eye care...ABOVE AND BEYOND IS WHAT MCKENZIE DID! I AM 100% PLUS SATISFIED...THANK YOU McKenzie for GREAT, WONDERFUL, AMAZING and how it should be done customer service...BLESSINGS TO YOUR LIFE...JESUS LOVES YOU!!!😍 👑🦁🤲🕊🙌🙏😍💥

Super helpful staff. I was a little surprised that the exam was a virtual exam, however, by the end of the exam it all made sense. They were patient with me and answered all my questions. The young lady was very thourough in explaining to me what the costs were that went into my frames. I will definitely be back. Thank you

My 5 year old son broke his glasses today! Sunday! No ones open on Sunday! The day before he starts kindergarten!!!! I was freaked out! I called and spoke with James. He was wonderful! He explained what they could do and couldn’t do. They were very upfront on pricing and how long it would take. James advised me to get down there ASAP so we could have glasses for him to wear tomorrow for school. I got down there. We met Miss. Tierra. She’s absolutely amazing! She was great with my son! She helped us find a pair of glasses that fit him properly and that would work with his activities. She explained the glasses club and how it works. That sounds like a great program for us. All in all we had a great experience. We walked away with 2 pairs of glasses for a great price. I really appreciate them helping us! We will be back! I can’t say enough good about this place! I know they have my back.

Scheduled a same day appointment and was greeted right when I walked in. The manager was very helpful and knowledgeable with any questions I had and even helped me pick out glasses that fit my needs. If you want a huge variety of glasses and great customer service I would strongly recommend Stanton Optical!

I like that you can make appointments online and at the very last minute. It was interesting to have the exam with a doctor that wasn't in the room, but on a webcam. It works. They have decent prices on glasses and a fairly good selection of frames.
