I was referred to Stanton Optical in Santa Maris by my cousin. I was totally amazed at how fast and efficient they are. I called and they got me in the same day. Kassandra was the representative who helped me and she was super friendly and very informative which I loved. They have a wide range of frames that were all just super cute. Ulises walked me through the exam. It was very thorough and quick. Staff was attentive and will definitely be recommending others to come here. If I could give them an extra star I would.

Sacha was awesome!, as well as the Male who's name I'm unsure of , it was Steve ? I believe ,friendly ,happy guy! Helpful! Warmly greeted and helped quickly to exam area by Sacha and then to promptly ordering my glasses . I was in a bind having mine broken and so their customer service and help was appreciated! Also the type of exam for me personally was awesome! I guess maybe not for some as some reviews seem unkind but I honestly thought it was so neat! Also it's extremely accurate unless you did not answer correctly or were unsure of how the device works .I say this because my Rx came back exactly as prior apt with an in person Dr. , All in all a great experience and I highly recommend them here at Santa Maria Stanton ! Thanks again guys !

Need glasses? This is the spot. From start to finish the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I was so impressed with the service. They have a great selectionof glasses of all prices. My current budget is pretty tight and Steve really took the time to listen to what I liked and helped me find a pair that I love. Going to pick out glasses felt like a chore but Steve and Stanton make it really easy.

Normally I dread going to the eye doctor. It usually comes with long waits and being ignored by the employees, but at Stanton Optical I got the complete opposite experience. Right from the start the staff was friendly and welcoming, eager to help me in any way that they could. Ulises and Kassandra were very respectful, patient, and helpful in helping find the right frames for me. Overall very pleased with my experience.

I recently moved to the Santa Maria area. Sacha Rhoades is the branch manager of the Stanton Optical store in this area. She is AMAZING... As soon as I walked in, I was greeted warmly and had the best experience one could have for an eye exam! I would recommend her to anyone in the area. The world needs more people like her! THANK YOU!!

Got my glasses here 2 years ago. Service and glasses were great. Brought my mom here this year and she was greatly satisfied with what she was able to find here. She'd been searching for that perfect frame for the past year.

We needed a pair of eyeglasses for our granddaughter and we searched several places but could not find the perfect fit for her. Most places are friendly to little kids, however when visiting Staton Optical in Santa Maria, Steve’s customer service was beyond reproach. I would highly recommend anyone at any age to go see Steve at the Santa Maria location. He is extremely knowledgeable at his craft and patient when it comes to his customers. Steve has earned a customer for life in me and my family.

First time at Stanton, didn't exactly know what to expect. A lot of people in the establishment on this day, Saturday, but the service I received from Nicole was exceptional. She took the time work with me and I received a great deal.Picked-up my glasses about two weeks later. Glasses were quality and I am pleased with the outcome.Would recommend and return again in the future.

Took a chance on the buy one get one free and eye exam offer. Was very impressed with the eye exam. It was even more comprehensive than an exam at the ophthalmology office. They also have a large selection of glasses to meet many design requirements. Although my final price far exceeded the $59.00 offer, I am very pleased with my new regular and sunglasses and would recommend Stanton Optical to anyone.

Changing my review from 1 to 5 stars. Originally tried to go here when the place first opened and they did not have it together. But now a couple of years later they are doing a fantastic job. Everyone who helped me today from the technician to the remote optician to Eddie were fantastic. I came in with my old glasses literally falling off my face and they took excellent care of me. You can really tell that they care about their customers and want to give you the best experience possible. I would highly recommend this location, especially Eddie for helping you find a pair of new glasses that you'll fall in love with.

Was very pleasantly surprised by my whole experience at Stanton today! From the phone customer service to the last detail of ordering my glasses. My exam was very thorough as well. I appreciated how informative and sweet Nicole was! The best part of it all was Sacha, she made our experience enjoyable and was super cool and friendly as well as knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Super happy I took a chance at Stanton today and they gained long term customers out of my husband and I.

I visited this Stanton Optical fairly close to closing time. My eyeglasses had unexpectedly broke, and I was in need of a quick fix and new pair of glasses (because my glasses were quite old). The service far exceeded my expectations. I was able to not only get a great frame, but I walked in when they had a 'get a second frame for no additional charge' offer. The employee and manager were helpful and perfectly professional throughout the process. The manager went above and beyond to fix up my current glasses while ordering my new pairs with the perfect prescription and features. My old glasses had a broken nose piece that was not easy to fix, yet the manager stayed extra and stuck with the repair to make absolutely sure my current glasses were suitable to wear while I awaited the new glasses. I’m very impressed with this the highest level of service. Stanton Optical helped me just when I needed it.

I went in without an appointment and was able to be seen right away. They had a great selection of eyewear. Sasha Rhoadez was very helpful. She was honest about my glasses choices and I appreciate that. There was no pressure to buy. I was surprised about the virtual eye doctor. I hope the exam is correct, but Sasha was great.

Fast and efficient staff with great attitudes. A big and great selection of glasses with an area dedicated to sunglasses. Sacha, the Brand Manager was extremely helpful. As someone who was new to glasses, I had so many questions and she was more than happy to answer them. She even helped me choose glasses that complimented me best. Some people may be put off the eye exam which has a doctor doing the exam over a video call but honestly it works really well. There were no problems, the process was seamless. The eye exam is not expensive and it takes no more than an hour. I've recommended this place to friends and I recommend this to you. Again, big thank you to Sacha and her team. If you've been wondering about your vision or looking to grab a new pair of glasses, come check this place out!

I had a great experience with Stanton! From the minute I walked in the door I felt like I was the only customer in the place! Everyone was very attentive and helpful. The exam was pretty awesome too!! It was very new age using a Dr. who basically Skyped in and was able to do the whole exam remotely! I guess by doing this it’s a great way to give us all lower prices. Very cool in my book!! Sacha helped me pick out 2 pair of glasses (one regular and one sunglasses) that totally fit my personality. I’m really going to enjoy my new look! Thanks Stanton!! I’ll be back!

I came in to Stanton's after an exciting morning of stepping on my glasses getting out of bed for work. I had'nt been to an optomitrist in several years and it was the first time I went to buy glasses on my own. They were friendly and made me feel comfortable. They also allowed me to look through the frames without interruption and gave me options without being pushy. It was a wonderful experience and I will continue to do business with them. Highly recommend!

My son needed glasses and I called to make an appointment (free exam w bogo!) They had an appointment soon after and got him into the exam when we walked in. My son was skeptical about having to need glasses but they were patient and let him choose what he wanted. John was very helpful and explained everything easily. He was able to help us out w a few other things and I’m happy.

I couldn't be more happy with the service provided by Stanton Optical! The staff is extremely friendly. Both the manager & Sam took extra time to help me select the right glasses & contacts for my light-sensitivity issues. I received my order within the time-frame given and am very satisfied with the quality of the glasses. I definitely recommend Stanton for your vision needs and have already told family & friends to give them a try.

I visited Stanton Optical yesterday and was very impressed with the Store and the staff everyone was very helpful. Victoria did an outstanding job explaining the check in process and helped me fill out my insurance reimbursement form even offered to fax it in. After my exam I was taken over to see Erick who did an excellent job. He directed me to over to pick out some glasses and after a few minutes not able to decide on anything he right away came over and helped me pick my pair. I would highly recommend this place. A+++++

Staff at Stanton was awesome. Great prices and very experienced staff. I'm even able to return and receive 2 pair frames only in 2 years. Awesome deal. Can't beat that. Dr T. is very gentle and takes her time to explain process in detail. You'll love her. I walked out with 3 prescription glasses for under 300 with my insurance applied.
