What Our Customers Are Saying
After getting my prescription elsewhere, I was struggling to find affordable glasses so I was referred here by a friend. I am so pleased with their staff and their customer service. The gentleman that assisted me helped adjust the pricing to something that I could afford without making me switch the frames I loved. I ended up spending half of what I was quoted for at the previous office (and only for one pair) and I am very pleased with the 2 pairs I received here. I definitely recommended trying this place out!

So ecstatic with Stanton Optical! I think they were just as excited for my daughter as she was for herself!! Definitely recommended. Prices are amazing and she got both pair of glasses within 25 minutes of picking them out. And since she is under 13 she got the polycarbonate lens at no charge which is amazing and also helpful with this being her first pair of glasses!!

I walked in needing either temporary glasses or contacts to wear while my new frames shipped (I accidentally broke my glasses the day before and bought replacement frames from an online vendor). The Stanton Optical sales manager, Ms. Symone Ferguson, cross-checked prices, compared my prescriptions through old lenses I supplied, and ended up replacing the lenses in an outdated frame for me (avoiding paying for a new eye exam, purchasing new frames, etc.). I waited an hour while their lab produced my new glasses on-site. She and her team were attentive, human, and fast. And now an old pair of frames is brought back to life! I’ll be back and tell all I know.

I recently had to find a quick fix to help me with some new glasses. I went online and booked a appointment. called to verify, and showed up super early, because it was a later appointment time, after i got off work. ( that's a plus in my book, if open till 7pm.) Anyways, They got me in and with a free eye exam and explained things that even my regular eye doctor ( My Eye Doc) didn't take the time to do. I was able to find two frames that in short notice and picked them up the next day!! i would have had them that night but it was already to late, but usually they try and get them to you that day. I want to say a Special Thank You to all the Employees and Doctors that helped me out in a pinch. I will be Back . Great Customer Service ..

This was honestly the best experience I've had in optical care, and I would recommend them for anyone looking for the best service an care, ask for Rick Villegas as he went above to make sure that my glasses were made to fit and provided superb customer care. I have found my new home for eye care.

I read great reviews on the service and how much money everyone was saving. I live 73 miles away one way , my town does not have at Stanton Optical available. This was my third trip and every time I go it has been worth the drive and savings. Each time I go it gets better with service . I have to say that Rick and Michael were super nice and went above and beyond with great service on June -7-2019 . They had my bifocals ready for me within an hour and half. And Michael fixed a pair of my glasses within 5 mins. I am very pleased with how they treated me and my glasses fit and look super. Now days its hard to find wonderful people that care about saving you money and making you look your best. Thank you very much Rick and Micheal . I have told a lot of my friends and family members to go to Stanton Optical for great glasses , service and savings . I know Rick and Michael will take good care of them too.

Manager Jeff is amazing! He really is friendly and has excellent customer service skills. I've researched and visited other places and was always disappointed. (Don't bother going to Penney's Optical..... awful. Person there wasn't interested in assisting even though I was the only customer there). You'll be pleasantly surprised in every way at Stanton Optical! Ask for Jeff....

Stanton Optical in Tallahassee has always made me feel like family. I have come in several times and spoke with Mike, the manager I think. He always takes care of me and I’ve had nothing but a pleasant experience. I’m 24 so I normally do not post any reviews.I walked in at 5:45, paid at 6:00, and received my glasses before the 6:30 cutoff.Five stars from a hard to please young man. 10/10. Would recommend. Ask for Mike!- Trevor

This is the best place I have been for eye exams and glasses that I have ever been to. The staff is outstanding the eye doctor was terrific! I also felt so at home here with all the down to earth staff! The glasses were extremely lower than other places and they offer deals for you with or without eye insurance which was refreshing to say the least! The only one thing is they should get up to snuff with the computerized testing so you don’t have to have the drops for dialation so I hope they get around to getting up to date. Thank you Stanton! Thank you Jeffrey and Thank you Mike!

Jeffrey at Stanton Optical is wonderful! He had so much patience with my mother-in-law and I when we visited Monday. We visited twice that day trying to make up our mind on what we wanted. He was very helpful and not pushy. We both ended up ordering two pairs of really glasses at really great prices.

Awesome customer service! My college student lost her glasses and is 6 hours from home. They were able to make her 2 new pairs of glasses the same day without insurance for less than what I paid for her original glasses with insurance. Very happy!

Just purchased two pairs of glasses from Michael T. at Stanton Optical Tallahassee. Have not experienced better service than what he gave me! He clearly explained the options and I didn't think he was trying to "up sell" me. I had both pairs in less than one hour and the clarity, fit, and finish were fantastic! I'm very pleased with the product, even more so with the customer service .

I've been needing a new pair of glasses for a while, but did not know where to go because I do not have insurance. After doing some research, I found Stanton Optical to be the most affordable for anyone without insurance. I was able to book an appointment for the same day, get an eyes exam and get 2 pairs of glasses (BOGO) for about $150. Which in my experience is at least half the price of anywhere else! I was even able to pick up my new glasses a half hour after I ordered them. All the employees were friendly and helpful and the service was fast! I would definitely come here again!

The staff was very friendly & helpful. I got great glasses for a great price. Left with my glasses in the same visit which was so incredible when I expected to have to wait a week like many other places. Highly Recommend!

I arrived a little early and they started right away. The Staff and Doctor were very friendly and helpful. My only "ding" is that online the advertised sale was 2 pair of glasses for $59 but the store LITERALLY has only 9 pair of glasses to choose from that qualified for that sale. So I of course went with the other sale going on in the store which is BOGO free.I still came out with an Awesome deal though but it cost me a little more money.

Walked in welcomed immediately by the Jeff. He so kind and responsive towards everyone he was talking too even when it was so busy!I was able to get an appointment scheduled the following day and had my eye exam and new glasses within a day! It was super fast service and they have a huge selection of frames to choose from. I enjoyed Jeff and his kind service to get the best price I could get for my new glasses!

Was very pleased with my experience. I scheduled an appointment for my brother (same day service!) and was nervous about our insurance coverage (we’ve had issues in the past because our BCBS account is a little weird). We went in and our insurance didn’t come up. After about 30 minutes of the employee trying to figure it out and calling the insurance company, she got everything working and was super helpful and patient with us. My brother was happy with his service and got his new prescription. When we went to order more contacts, the man helping us wanted to make sure we got the best deals and talked us through everything. These people are super friendly and patient with you. They answer every question you have and, even though they get pretty busy, we are happy to say we will be coming back. It was a great experience!

I just had an appointment and I actually loved this place! I came in and was immediately greeted, and everyone was nice! Unlike when I go to some others where the people there are super mean and just say "sit down" and you pay. I actually interacted with everyone. The pricing is very affordable and make sense unlike some others where it's 200 dollars for contact and eye glass exam... here was $90... WITH MY ASTIGMATISM! Coming back for sure! ????

Great service. First visit was an eye exam and contacts - they knew what they were doing, were very kind and patient and even fixed the nose pads on my glasses before I went in for the exam! Clean atmosphere and very big selection on glasses. I don't trust many eye doctors but these people were great. Will definitely come again.
