Had never been to Stanton Optical before so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very pleased with how well everything went, & I wouldn't hesitate to visit the La Mesa store again. Everyone was very friendly, efficient & professional, especially Tiffany who keeps the place running like a well-oiled machine. Kudos to her for a job well done!

Tiffany was wonderful. She acknowledged me right away, she was very detailed oriented, as well as very engaging. We had a delightful conversation. I ordered two pair of eye glasses, one of which they were able to give me that day. I would highly recommend Stanton Optical, this was my first experience with them, but it will most certainly not be my last. Thanks again Tiffany

I had a lovely time there at Stanton Optical. Doctor thoroughly explained everything during eye exam. Staff was very welcoming especially Tiffany who had helped me throughout my first time visit there. She was very helpful in showing me my options on purchasing frames and the necessities needed for lenses. Prices are a bit high but that’s due to high quality of lenses and frames. Would definitely recommend overall.

Best place ever. A little steep on prices but that’s expected out of quality. They have always take care of my needs with glasses, and so quickly. FYI Joseph is the best, too. He’s very helpful.

I was beyond impressed with the entire staff at Stanton Optical in La Mesa. I had called in earlier in the day and was able to make an appointment for that same day for an eye/contact exam! The optometrist was amazing and very sweet. I'm really not kidding when I say every person I came into contact with was so pleasant to work with. I got a great deal on a new pair of frames and 6 months of contacts. They had my prescription lenses in stock and my frames were ready next day! My contacts also came in very fast which was nice but they do give you that trial pair so there's really no waiting! I would recommend Stanton Optical to my family and friends over and over again! I tell everyone I know that they should get their eyes checked as it is SO important and LIFE CHANGING when you are finally able to see clear again! 10/10 would recommend. Joseph was amazing on getting me good deal on my frames, lenses and contacts. He was very personable and customer service orientated! If you've read this review this far, your mind should be made up. GO SEE Joseph and the other staff at Stanton Optical in La Mesa!

I hate shopping for eyeglasses but had a surprisingly wonderful experience. I was helped by Cody who was very knowledgeable and funny. After picking out several frames he was a great help choosing the best ones based on symmetry and other details I often overlook. I'm very happy with my new glasses and love wearing them. Definitely going back to see Cody the next time I need help with eyeglasses!

My 1st thought that it has to be to good to be true....! Entering the 1st day the store opened, I was greeted by "Cody". I asked him immediately what the catch was and he kindly said there is no catch and I will get an eye examine and 2 pair of glasses for $69.99. Cody is very polite and professional as is the entire staff. I recommend this store highly for anyone needing glasses or contacts. I love both pair of my glasses! I got a pair for distance and a pair for close up....
