What Our Customers Are Saying
We have a lot of good things to say about this place. The dr. We saw was the sweetest man and made my son feel really great about the process. The staff were all more than helpful both times we came in. When we brought our frames in to be fitted with lenses Lindsay, took such wonderful care of us. She made our entire process clear and efficient and treated my son with tremendous care and kindness. Definitely a returning customer.

Lyndsay Holmes and Dr. McDonald at Stanton Optical are the best!! Dr. McDonald took the time to find out what my vision problem really was unlike the several other eye glass stores I’ve been too. Lyndsay went way above and beyond to help me understand my insurance, my new prescriptions and helped me pick my new glasses. She really took the time and listened to what I wanted and helped me maximize my insurance benefits to get the best deal. I will not go anywhere else. I have found my new eyeglass store. 🥰

I had an excellent experience here. I was since rather quickly, the exam was thorough yet efficient. I felt comfortable and an adequate amount of time was taken to answer questions I had and the doctor was very intelligent. I think he was my favorite eye doctor so far and I've seen quite a few. Lindsay was one of the receptionist/check out persons and she was extremely helpful, kind and personable. She really helps to make customers feel welcomed and valued, which adds to a climate of care and belonging, I really appreciated it.

My husband and I BOTH needed eye exams & glasses (me for the first time). We went in on a very busy day (that was also understaffed due to a few folks calling in sick, apparently). Despite this (and as a business owner, I know how tough this is), the person in charge of keeping everything moving for customers--named Lindsay--was fantastic! I just wanted to give her a shout-out, because she truly managed to pull off the seemingly impossible...taking care of multiple customers & their various needs in a timely & professional manner and doing it all with smiles and goodwill all around. We highly recommend this business both for its stellar employees (Lindsay for certain!), excellent care (the professional eye exams were also a huge plus and very thorough), & competitive pricing & specials.

Richard was super helpful! With his guidance we were able to find awesome new frames and get a new prescription for less than what we would have paid for one pair of frames at our last doctor. Highly recommend going in to see Richard!

I went in yesterday with my 20yr old son. He has worn glasses since he was 2 yrs old. He lives in Florida and lost his glasses the day before flying up to see his Dad and I. He has terrible eyesight and of course his lenses will need to be ordered. We were so incredibly fortunate to have Lyndsay Holmes help us. She was so sweet. She helped us with checking in for his eye exam, helped my son pick out some really nice looking frames, that by the way he never would have considered but loves them. She made sure that we were completely informed and that we were getting the best deal possible. She is also going to try to speed up getting his glasses in since he cant see. Never in the 18yrs of purchasing glasses for my son has anyone been this dedicated to making sure that the customer is happy. I have made up my mind that when he needs to have glasses again, I will fly him up here so that we can go back to Lyndsay. Truly a top notch young woman that cares about her customers. Thank you Lyndsay.Colleen Williams Luke Kidd

I got a new pair of glass here about a year ago, they're great. I recently went in to update my contact prescription and had a heck of a time with the trial pair I was given. I called the store and the manager was kind and helpful; couple hours later I went into the store and Lyndsay Holmes found my prescription and gave me a new trial pair that work perfectly! It was customer service way beyond my expectations

I went by the store today, Sunday, and it was pretty quiet inside. I was greeted by Ed and Rena upon entering and when they determined I had an appointment for an eye exam I was escorted to the back examination area. There I met Lindsey who took great care of me through the examination process. She took note of my being in a wheelchair and made sure I didn't experience any difficulties maneuvering around the exam rooms. My vision exam was with Raquel, she performed the exam remotely. She was patient and good at giving me the exam. Afterward, I went back out front and picked out some frames while waiting for the prescription to come back. Once I had some frames picked out Ed and Rena gave me world class service while not draining my bank account. I still spent a couple hundred dollars but felt like I had spent a million with the level of service I received. I want to thank Lindsey, Rena and Ed for their genuinely helpful customer service, knowledge and overall friendliness.

I was greeted as soon as I came in by Lindsey Holmes, a staff member at Stanton. Lindsey was very patient with me, explaining all of my options and helping me pick out frames. She was very personable and made the interaction feel less like a marketing tactic and more like chatting with a friend. In addition, I feel like Stanton offers competitive pricing for the area. I will definitely be back because of the good service I received at Stanton.

My son and went for eye exams and contacts and glasses. We were there a total of 2.5 hours start to finish. Our glasses were ready for pick up 1.5 hours after we were done the same day!Dr. Quilla was super nice and very professional, Along with all the other staff. The gentleman that works up front is awesome (sorry I didn’t remember your name). Rena S. Helped my son and I. My son got a 6 months supply of contacts and a pair of glasses. I got two pairs of glasses; one regular pair and one pair of sunglasses. Rena took time to do all the math to figure out the cheapest way for me to file on our insurance. I saved over $900! This place is awesome and has my future business!

Branch Manager Tiffani Folles was awesome. My optician gave me the wrong RX, and I only noticed after having already paid (yikes). Tiffani was able to go back in and make sure the order was updated. They are always polite, and the orders always come quickly (more on the end of 5 business days than 10). Highly recommend.

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.

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.

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!

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).
