Love being able to schedule an appointment online and was even able to get in the very next day. It was later in the afternoon and were told the glasses wouldn’t be ready until the next day. When we shared that my son’s glasses were actually broken, the sales rep went back and talked to the technician. We were able to pick up the glasses in an hour. I’ve also had an exam done and they were very thorough.

Go see Julie and get your eyes taken care of. It took all of an hour to get my eyes checked and two pairs of glasses picked out. Julie took one look at me and pulled the perfect frames off the rack, then worked with me to make sure the price was affordable. I don't expect these specs to wear out any time soon, but when they do I'll be going back to Stanton.

Tiffani Folles was excellent and went above and beyond. She was extremely funny, polite and took a lot of time to make sure that my eye exam went correctly and that I got the best lenses for my eyes. I paid exactly what I was quoted, she wasn't pushy about any upgrades to my glasses just informative. I told her I was leaving town for a while and she made sure my glasses were ready the next day. The rest of the staff was very polite as well, even as they got extremely busy when I came back to pick up my glasses. It was some of the best customer service I've had in a long time as I could tell everyone was really trying and doing their best to help the people around them. I will recommend to friends and family.

I purchased a new pair of glasses this summer while I was traveling in NY and after several weeks, I was still having headaches and couldn't see clearly. So I went into Stanton Optical by my house and they told me the pupillary distance was incorrect on the lenses. They were very knowledgeable and professional and got my lenses corrected that day! It 100% fixed my problem and I'm so grateful. They were affordable and I would certainly go back in the future.

This was my first time doing business at this location, recommended to me by word of mouth. What really sold me to give this place a try was the deal at the door. Two pair of glasses with an free eye exam* at $59.95. As a person that has used a previous pair of glasses for the past 3 years, also meaning a 3 year old prescription, I was in need of an upgrade. I arrived 10 minutes before my appointment, was greeted, showed around, and signed in before I knew it. The doctor was very easy and friendly to talk to. The exam took about 10 minutes with no hassle. The associate that helped with the hunt for glasses was really friendly too. I found 2 pair after some questions and calculations were made because I was on a budget and don't have insurance at the moment.+Plus+Very Friendly StaffFast CheckupOn Day DeliveryBudget Friendly+Minus+*The selection of 'Value' eyewear was much to be desired which is the only way to meet the advertisement of $59.95. Many will use their glasses for years after a checkup like mine and I believe you'll want okay or decent looking spectacles on your face for that time. The value selection was neither of these. Many pair of glasses (that look okay/decent) came out swinging no less than $100 and this is without any bells or whistles. Needless to say, I spent more than I expected.Bright side, the gentlemen that dealt with my budget problems went above and beyond to make me a happy customer and form a relationship for future business. So I will still highly recommend them for optical needs.

I had a great experience! The staff was super nice! I had two teenagers that needed glasses and they not only helped us with the selection of their glasses they gave us a great deal! My son had to have a eye exam and he has special needs and the nurse and doctor was wonderful! I will definitely be going back!

This was the best experience I have ever had visiting an optical center! My appointment was for 3:45 p.m. but I had to pick up a sick kid early from daycare. I arrived at 2 p.m. and the manager Jay immediately greeted me and got me going. There was another sales associate by the name of Jessie. Jay paired me with Jessie, my assumption was she was another female and could probably help me pick out glasses better. I have been calling around to Optical centers all week trying to find the best deal on getting a new pair of eyeglasses. Stanton Optical had millions of choices and Jesse help me pick out two pairs and I got one of them for free! I already had my own eye exam to bring in so for exactly $99 out the door I got to complete pairs of modern eyeglasses and lenses and here's the kicker.. I pick them up the same day just within one hour! I would recommend them to everyone!

The ladies at Stanton Optical were so helpful and worked to satisfy my wants and needs. It is hard to come by a company that works hard with a positive attitude to help you achieve what you want while getting what you need. I would recommend this company in Asheville to everyone.

I love my glasses, but this Stanton needs some work on customer service. While people are nice, I agree with everyone that they don't communicate with the customer when their glasses are ready. The customer service leaves little to be desired as they don't show any empathy that no call or notification was received, not to mention I have never had to wait this long for eyeglasses. I still think this location is new and it will improve with time (I hope).
