What Our Customers Are Saying
I was told a lens replacement would take ten minutes and it took an hour and a half. The product quality seems cheap. They also have the most uncomfortable chairs I have ever sat on, it matches the decor though. The managers were on the hostile side.

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.

Nice and friendly staff. My experience here was nothing but fantastic. This place is real deal. As of writing this post, their Buy one get one deal is legit. Includes lenses and frames with included warranty. I would recommend this place to anyone that are looking for glasses and lenses. Definitely beats other competitors have to offer. This place is amazing!

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!

Customer service is great if you can get it. The phone number online sends you to and automated system and no matter what option you choose the only thing you can do is schedule an appointment. I chose "other inquiries" and asked about having my lenses replaced under the warranty and they couldn't help me so they gave me the local office number. I called it with no success. The phone would ring and go to an automated voicemail system that wasn't set up and I was afraid I had the wrong number because a large business like Stanton should probably have a more customer friendly phone system. I called the other number back, they confirmed I had the right number and they transferred me... I sat on hold for 10 minutes. After that I just called them on re-dial until finally someone answered. Then it was great! Very personable and helpful staff! I went in that day and had my order placed for new lenses. Now 10 days later I play the same phone game calling on re-dial until someone answers and ask if my lenses are ready. The lady I talked to wasn't sure but didn't think they were and has promised to call me back. Good thing I don't NEED these glasses to see all the time and they are still functional.

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.
