What Our Customers Are Saying
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!!!😍 👑🦁🤲🕊🙌🙏😍💥

I was working my way off the streets and was in a bad spot being legally blind without contact lenses or glasses. I am so thankful that the staff at Stanton optical took time to listen to me and helped me so i was able to enjoy my sons volleyball games, and continue on with my road to recovery. I highly recommend this place and will continue to be a customer.

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.
