What Our Customers Are Saying
I had to come back several times because my prescription had changed significantly. I worked with multiple staff members, had to have my eyes rechecked, just happened to show up on days that they were extremely busy AND I was a walk in every time. Through it all, everyone on staff was incredibly knowledgeable, extremely patient and very respectful. I really gave them a hassle (not on purpose) but they handled it with grace and some of the best customer service I have experienced in a while. Thank you! I am seeing much better now!
This was the best experience I’ve had at Stanton optical. I was in and out with a new pair of glasses. My exam was at 2:30, but I was early and they saw me right way. Heather was an amazing help setting me up with my pair of glasses. Such a friendly and open staff. 10/10 would recommend.
Dr. Bartlett and Stephanie A were absolutely AMAZING they helped me not only get new glasses the same day after mine broke into pieces, but I also got super cute sunglasses, amazing service, and an overall wonderful experience. I was so worried and stressed out over my situation, but the moment I walked into Stanton my stress was gone because of how amazing and helpful the two of them were. I HIGHLY recommend going here for any glasses or contacts needs you might have!!
Had an amazing buying experience. Staff was cordial and knowledgeable of their products and was understanding of my son's optic needs and wants, leading us to a great product. Thank you to Kayla Wright who made the whole experience possible.P.s. She deserves a raise
I am a smart consumer who always shops around. When I went to check out Stanton Optical, the staff was warm and friendly. I was greeted immediately and given personal attention. They answered all my questions in detail. I normally feel like most people in the sales industry don't care about me and are just out for my money. This was not the case at Stanton. While I wasn't ready to make a purchase at the time, I am definitely returning to Stanton when I am. The price I was quoted was better than the other 4 places I looked into but what really won my business was the outstanding customer service from all of the staff.
My name is Phillip Mark. I came in with my daughter An who needed her first pair of glasses. An is 5 years old. Our tech Jason helped us and he was so patient. He wasn’t the normal sales person just try to get a sales type of person he really cared about my daughters and he went out of his way to help me find a better discount on the price of her glasses. I really appreciated the service Phillip Mark
Jason was amazing, I highly recommend him! He was very friendly and patient with my son and the price very fair. There wasn’t a line but when I go back I will wait in line for him if I have to! Thanks Jason! I also liked Dr. Frecker who did the exam. We had an exam, order glasses and walked out with them in less than 2 hours!
After using a different optician closer to my home for years, I initially went to Stanton Optical because of their advertised special pricing and free eye exam. I was very pleased with the quality of the eye exam and the excellent help I received from the staff member who helped me choose my glasses. I will mention that I did not receive my exam for free. I was told prior to the exam that I had to choose glasses that day to receive the exam for free. I was overwhelmed with the choices and unable to decide on frames that same day. I paid for the exam and returned a week later to decide on frames. It would be a nice gesture to apply the price of the exam to the frames if a customer returns within 30 days. Regardless of this, I was very happy and will make Stanton Optical my first choice when I need new glasses
Open weekends to acomadate people who work during the week. Dr was very attentive and informative. Lots of styles to choose from. Stephanie A worked her magic to make sure I was totally satisfied with my glasses. She knows her stuff and has an awesome personality that made me feel like family. The hostess( Heather?) Very professional and buzzed sound the office tending to all customers needs. Overall great experience
Amazing experience! Staff was incredibly helpful! Helped me pick out frames, was not rushed, and helped with any questions I had. Jason explained everything very thoroughly and made it easy to understand. I thought this was too good to be true, but it sure was everything they advertised!! Got glasses when I left! Highly recommend!
My experience at Stanton Optical was very satisfactory. The service was excellent. I was seen by Dr. Farlow, who was very personable, patient, and understanding with me. He was very professional and knowledgable. He explained my medical situation to me in depth and the effects they would have, which helped me reach a better understanding of my vision. I cannot recall the name of the associate who helped me out in picking frames, but I feel she was honest, pleasant, and technically proficient. She knew what she was doing and was very professional while taking measurements, going over prices and the entire process. She answered all of my questions fully. She explained the warranty and exchange policy and told me to come back in if I ever needed adjustments or repairs. I purchased 2 pairs of glasses; one for close computer work and one for overall wear. I left feeling that I would be taken care of in the future, should any issues arise.Issues did arise, as I was having issues adjusting to the computer glasses. As I have to move around a lot at my job, my visual range is constantly changing and the glasses were not working as I had hoped. I felt I would be better off with another pair of progressive glasses, so I came back. They promptly assisted me by switching out the lenses without any hassle or delay, and with minimal cost. I am very happy with the service I have received and would recommend them to anyone. The only reason I did not rate them as 5 stars, is because I will never give ANYONE a 5 star rating, but they came pretty darn close.
Visited on a Saturday afternoon with an existing prescription and were wonderfully assisted by Stephanie A., Assistant Sales Manager. She was helping multiple customers, but she was great about communicating where she would be, how soon she would be back, and what the next step would be. She knew the frame selection and what would fit and look good. She made us feel fantastic about our purchase.Pros:. Wide selection, open weekends, great service, prices seemed reasonable.Cons:. Who were all the other people standing around not helping customers? Really need to spend some money to replace the ripped carpet and stained ceiling tiles. Seemed like paperwork could be fully computerized for faster check-out.
I had an excellent experience at this Stanton Optical. I was looking for an eye doctor near my house that could take me on short notice. The scheduling processes was a breeze because I could just do it online. Every person that I interacted with was extremely pleasant, especially Brittany. I highly recommend!
For the past several years I have relied on Stanton Optical for my eyeglass needs. Most recently, I was very satisfied with the professional and kind service of Optometrist Dr. Teeter (eye exam) and the young lady staff person who assisted me in choosing eyeglass frames and pricing. I was pleased with both the quality of the eyeglasses I received as well as the competitive (after discussion) pricing of Stanton. Highly recommend based on my experience.
I'm terrified of eye doctors. They could see how nervous I was and the eye doctor actually gave me a little pep talk. Best eye exam I have had. Went to start looking for frames and a lady came up and introduced herself as Stephanie. I said, "Oh, you're the Stephanie everyone raves about in the reviews." And now I see why. She was honest about how the frames looked on me. Was able to get my glasses that day. Little did I know, this whole time, my boyfriend was scheming with everyone in there. Tried my glasses on, and they were making sure I could read and see around, when the guy had me turn around to find my boyfriend on one knee. Yup, I got engaged at Stanton Optical (so I could see what I was getting myself into, ya get it?). Thanks guys, for helping with everything. I don't plan on ever going anywhere else.
Stephanie A was tremendously helpful in making us satisfied customers. After being a little intimidated by the prices from the get-go, she was able to find us glasses in our price range. She was also very pleasant, and I recommend anyone go to her, as she made our Stanton experience a good one.
Stephanie A. took amazing care of me! She has great customer service skills. It was crazy busy and I had my eye exam, frames, and paid for everything in 45 mins. Thank you Stephanie A.! By the way she deserves a vacation.
My husband got bad scratch his lenses just 2 days ago. We walked in and he needs new glasses asap which he could done by same day with his prescription!! We were so happy that staff were so friendly and he could find the perfect frame.The only thing I was wondering if we could get free cleaning cloth for first time purchase. Also I hope they will have more frams for Asian then I would be highly recommend.
My daughter's frames were defective, and Sam tried to repair them. She told us they could not be repaired but we're still under warranty. Those exact frames are no longer available but we could pick another. My daughter was disappointed to lose frames she loved but started looking. Sam found a very similar pair and showed my daughter. We really appreciated the extra care and effort that showed.
The appointment was easy to book online and I didn’t have to wait when I got here. The doctor saw me right away. Then Stephanie A. helped me with the rest. She ran my insurance and got me the best deal. She looked for any promotion she could get me. Stephanie was amazing and super friendly. I normally struggle to even find one pair of glasses that I like with my face shape, but I loved their selection. The whole process took less than an hour and that includes me walking out with 3 new pairs of glasses. Highly recommend.
Great friendly service. Was very fast paced the whole way through, they did not keep me waiting for long periods. I would have given 5 stars but they get you with underlying costs. They do not make it very clear that the sale price is only for frames and exam and does not include the price of lenses, those start at $227... So when I expected to pay $89 (the cost on the frames)and got slapped with $316 final bill due to lens costs. Beware! Otherwise I am happy with my experience.
Heather was extremely attentive and helped us find exactly what we needed. We picked out one of the frames that fall under the 2 for $60 deal but they became unavailable so she was able to help us find a better pair for the same price. I recommend Staton to anyone, and ask for Heather. You will not be let down.
I was so pleased with the service from the time I walked in the door until when I left! Our service tech was Brook Myers ( I asked) and I was in with my grandson and she was so attentive and playful with my grandson who is 5 that it was completely painless!,The staff as a whole was fun upbeat and great! The quality is great as well as the service that comes with the glasses. Thank you Stanton because of this young woman I will be using your center from now on!
I love this place! I have 8 pairs of glasses from 2 different shopping trips here. I can never leave with just 1 pair because they're all so cute! I love the variety of glasses! They're also ready really quickly. Last time they were ready in about 24 hours. This time they were ready within 30 minutes. The employees are also friendly and helpful. They give you honest feedback on the glasses you're trying on. They also make sure to give you the best discount available on your glasses. They're also knowledgeable about the glasses they have in stock. I came in looking for a pair of orange glasses and was disappointed I couldnt find a pair that looked good on me. Heather, who was helping me, was able to find the perfect orange pair as soon as I mentioned that was what I was looking for. I've been completely happy with both times I've been here.
Heather, the branch manager is the absolute best!!! My dog ate mine and my boyfriend’s glasses and after getting there towards the end of the day (ordered them after they stopped making glasses for the day) she made sure we got our glasses before we left! And gave us a deal no one could beat!! Thank you so much Heather! You’re a life saver!!
I took my daughter for the special. The staff was friendly and fast paced. HEATHER the manager was SUPER nice worked within our budget and yet held my daughters hapiness to the up most priority! We got a great deal and my baby girl left Smiling ear to ear excited to get her New glasses. Thank you so much Heather you are awesome
Stephanie A was extremely nice and knowledgeable. She helped me pick out some super cute frames that I'm very happy with.My glasses we ready in literally ten minutes. Walked in with no glasses, left with two beautiful pairs in about an hour including an exam and picking out frames.I was greeted by Kayla the Manager who was more than willing to help me out.I had a slight inconvenience with my insurance (not Stanton's fault. It was the insurance policy rules. I'm on my parents insurance but they stop covering vision at 19years. I'm 25) and because of that and my time constraints with my family I had to reschedule for the next day. They felt bad about the inconveniences so as I walked into Stanton the next day they were more than willing to help me out and definitely helped me out to compensate me coming back the next day.I definitely highly recommend them.The doctor is very friendly and personable.Great customer service.Quick, friendly, educated and definitely the place to go!!!
So grateful for Stephanie A. and Kayla!! Not only were they both helpful courteous and professional but they helped me with my contacts and sunglasses!! Definitely a pleasant experience and I will be returning to order glasses!!
