What Our Customers Are Saying
I was lucky enough to work with Vanessa at Stanton Optical. Even at the busiest time of day, the staff was courteaous, efficient, and responsible to my questions. Vanessa went above and beyond and took the time to find the perfect plan for my budget and even after the day was done, she made sure to tell me what my options were while holding a reciprocal conversation about everyday stuff. Thanks Vanessa.

Josie was the absolute best! I came in and told her what I had to work with and she totally made it happen. The doctor listened to what I had to say and was patient with me to make sure that I had the perfect prescription - not an experience I’ve had with other optometrists in the past. I highly recommend this place. Even with a 10-14 day wait for the glasses, I honestly think it’s worth it.

A few years ago I had a horrible experience here, and I was debating on whether I was going to come back, and I have to say I'm so happy I decided to give this place a second chance! The staff is amazing and the doctor was very kind and informative. One particular employee, Alexis, was extremely helpful and sweet! She was very kind and professional and did everything she could to help me with my contacts! Thank you again. ????
