Great experience here. Came here for an exam, glasses & contacts. Brianna greeted us. She was helpful, honest and clear about how much everything would cost. Exam was quick. Large choice of glasses to choose from. Waiting room was large and comfortable. So glad I saw the sign... $69 for 2 pairs of glasses and free exam. Highly recommend!!

Went into Stanton to get me some more glasses and contacts and the service was fantastic. From the moment I walked in the door, I was greeted and shown to the back area where I met my doctor. He was very professional in getting me the right glasses and contact prescription. I recommend Stanton Optical to everyone.

Went in a little early before my appointment and was seen almost immediately. Very quick, very professional and very nice employees. The location seemed busy but everyone was being helped by someone. Will definitely come back.

From the moment we walked through the door, my kids and I were treated with care and kindness! We all needed glasses and the staff was so patient with us. Everyone we met did everything to make sure we were happy and confident with our frames. My son is especially hard on his glasses and they've always been happy to repair/replace the damage. We will definitely be loyal customers, and I encourage anyone to give them a chance. They will still be taking care of you long after you receive your glasses 😉
