What Our Customers Are Saying
Best experience at an eyeglass store ever! I was helped by the wonderful Amenah, who was attentive, very personable, friendly, and competent. She made the experience wonderful. She spent time with me explaining how the various parts of my prescription would cost, she was great helping me pick frames, and expertly summed it all up, and I left completely happy! The eye exam was also done extremely competently, and not rushed. All around, an excellent experience!

George is the guy to go too! I came in for the first time and he was very friendly and approachable, he cracked a few jokes and I was instantly relaxed. Signed me up and pre checked my eyes under 15 minutes. Helped me pick out my glasses and saw the doctor who was great as well, I forgot her name but she was a nice asian lady. After that, we paid and waited for the lenses to get cut. Only took 15 minutes and the nice man with pretty green eyes helped me adjust my glasses. After that, I was on my way! Great place! I will come again!

I am pretty impressed with Stanton Optical. Getting the appt was quick. They were more than accommodating for my teen (14) & her new contacts. After an hr and a half of trying to put the contacts in, they let us arrange to return the next day. The second day they got us right back in and she tried for another hr and a half or so. The team checked on her, gave her various options to try and gave her space. Eventually she started to be able to put them in, but one wasn't staying well. Another doctor reexamined her after trying to put them in himself and changed the prescription and lenses. There wasn't much discussion on that change to me, her parent. I asked and the doctor wasn't quite able to explain the change. I was also alarmed when I got home and saw her prescription #s we're different than the other given and had to spend some time googling. I do think they should have some plan in place for cases where someone can't put them in after a long time and is clearly frustrated: either a set plan for return or a reexamination. This seemed to be out of the ordinary for them, and there was a lot of "what do we do" discussions both when leaving and returning. I find it hard to believe this has never happened before or won't again. But the staff went out of their way despite that and was really good to my daughter, they tried to calm her, assured her it was normal to have difficulty, shared their own stories. . .

Everyone there was super helpful and able to answer any question I had for them. There was a very good selection of frames at pretty reasonable prices. Definitely suggest going to them for your eyewear needs.

Being the picky person I am, Mark our optician, was extremely accommodating and patient. I could not make up my mind on frames and his frame selection for my face was on point. Even after choosing a few pairs, I still went home and had to think about it. Glasses are not cheap, and I wanted to make sure I chose the right frame. The optometrist was super funny, and made our experience enjoyable for me and my family. She made getting older and needing new glasses very graceful and reassuring. They accepted my insurance, and had amazing deals on top of that. Needless to say, I chose both frames that were fitted to me, and I feel confident of my final choices. I would definitely recommend making an appointment versus walking in; you may have to wait a bit, but it’s worth the wait. Thank You for your great customer service😎

Stephanie was awesome!!! She is super professional and awesome at her job. She helped my wife and I get the glasses we wanted while fixing the sunglasses I already have by cleaning super glue residue off of them. Not only was she able to find us the best deal possible by cross referencing my previous purchase plan and current store promotions, she juggled assisting her coworkers with the phone and directing walk-ins customers. People like this make business personal and really give customers the experience they deserve. My wife got the reading glasses that she needed and I ordered a new pair of sunglasses for my work. So stoked. This location of stanton optical has a very nice selection of Sunglasses. Also a shout out to Senior Doc on duty. My wife said he was very pleasant and funny... Thanks again Stanton Optical!

I went to Stanton not long ago to get my glasses repaired, they were fixed in a jiffy! In the meantime, I wondered whether I should get another pair. The General Manager Ameen introduced himself and helped me find a very nice frame for me and for my daughter as well. His customer service is stupendous and he was able to explain the details of the package very clearly. His team that was on shift were such helpful friendly people and really created a comfortable environment there. Thank you so much Team Stanton of Santee we love your service!

Excellent service by Stephanie who worked with me to get glasses for night driving, trifocals, computer glasses & glasses for distance driving, all at a very reasonable price. She worked with my prescription. They also offer exams if you don’t have a prescription. Stephanie is so professional & top notch. They were even able to make 2 of my glasses that day, and they are perfect!! Great customer service by Stephanie!

I had a great experience with Stanton. The Dr. performing my exam was very informative. She explained everything in such detail. Marc helped in choosing my frames and he did an awesome job at picking styles that complimented my face. He and the rest of the staff were super friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

Wow!!! Talk about service!!! These guys slay it everytime. I am the kind of person that once I find something I like I am loyal to a fault. The manager Cody even came over to see how my experience was!!! I can see where his representatives get their service skills from. Thank you for another seemless visit.
