The woman who assisted me checking out of my appointment was very helpful and friendly. I have no vision insurance, so I signed up for care credit and immediately got approved for the amount that I needed to pay for my glasses. She explained to me that I needed the anti glare add on to my glasses because I have high astigmatism. I wasn’t completely sold, but then she offered me a discount on the add on and I ended up taking it! Stanton is easy, quick, and will work with your budget!

We walked in without an appointment and we were attended quickly. Tomas was very helpful and kind. Although his Spanish wasn’t great, he still spoke it as best he could. Also he helped my mom choose some glasses out and had a good attitude. I recommend coming here.

Wonderful customer service we had from Josie! A year ago i had issues with glasses and she helped me then and remembered me when my boyfriend and i came in a week ago with couple of other issues with both of our glasses. She worked in a timely manner, helped us fix our problems with our glasses, was very nice and professional! Will defiantly be back to see her if needed! Thank you Josie once again for all of you help! (:

Very nice experience overall. My son and I were first time customers last year, we each got one One pair of glasses and the other one free, I signed up for the frame warranty. Only 25$ to replace the frames, it is very easy to call and get replacement. Any issues I had, they were resolved the same day. Cynthia and Josie were very helpful and answered all my questions.

I was skeptical to come in but since the moment we stepped in, the attention we received from Sacha was phenomenal, she went above and beyond, I recommend anyone to not have an ounce of doubt to come in and SEE what their about and change your life, one frame at a time.

5 stars for Dr. Ye for an excellent exam. Extremely competent and professional. The related business is built on the upsell principle. So if you can tolerate that you'll be fine. The staff was very patient and helpful.

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. ????
