Purchasing glasses is always a stressful decision- but Sam was a huge help with providing different selections appropriate for my face shape and style preferences. Even after at least the15th pair I tried on she was patient and made sure I was happy with my purchase. Overall good eyeglass selection, and welcoming staff. Thank you!

Great staff. Relaxed environment. Good deals. That BOGO mix and match on glasses and sunglasses is amazing. They'll hook it up, and will work with any budget.

Went in this past weekend, was helped by Daniel. I don’t know much about glasses, I have never worn glasses until I took an eye exam there.. turns out I need glasses... he was very knowledgeable and helpful in choosing frames. Did not feel rushed at all. Very flexible in prices and offers, received no judgement from my financial situation, they made sure I got what I needed, got a great price overall.

I went in to try a new place, and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My eye exam was very thorough and the tech explained every step of the exam. Figuring my prescription was also interesting I did have someone on a computer conducting the test she was nice and patient. Daniel was patient and friendly in helping me find frames. He provides excellent customer service. Overall it was a great experience just waiting for my frames.

I was so very pleased with my visit to the Stanton Optical Store on Murphy Canyon The process was smooth. Eye exam was done according to my booked appointment. I felt at ease and took my time in choosing my frames. There is a very wide selection. . The eyeglass Rep. was Daniel and he and the store manager Michael both answered my questions and made the process of making the right choice with my insurance very easy. I am looking forward to picking up my glasses and will update more . Thank you

First of all, I was able to get my eye exam with a doctor via TV/FaceTime/super cool technology. Sweet. :) The employees are personable and I got to order my frames straight away! They made it super easy and I can’t wait to get my pair of fly frames. 😎
