This was hands down the best experience I’ve ever had with any business. I recently moved to the Columbia area and Liza (the lovely associate that helped me) was absolutely incredible. She was so helpful and kind and patient with me. I had so many questions and she took the time to answer every single one of them without making me feel like I was asking dumb questions or like I was getting on her nerves. I had never had prescription sunglasses before but she helped me pick out the perfect ones and went over every single option that was offered and explained the pros and cons of each one. She didn’t come across as pitchy or pushing a sale. You could tell she genuinely wanted to help. On top of being so informative and helpful, she helped me get the best deal possible. She took the time to go over my insurance benefits and gave me an amazing price on two pair of glasses that I never would have known about! Above and beyond doesn’t even begin to cover it. As soon as I was done with my appointment, I called three of my friends from the parking lot to rave about her. It would be an absolute shame if Stanton Optical ever lost her as an employee! She’s the entire reason I’ll be a repeat customer. I can’t gush enough about her.

My mom and I came in close to closing but Christina was so helpful in helping me pick out new frames! And the buy one get one free is such a good deal! I got a new pair of my glasses and new sunglasses for so much cheaper than pretty much anywhere else. And, I came in 30 minutes before close and I can pick up my glasses in the morning!! Definitely happy with the service and won’t be going anywhere else.

I had an amazing experience today. Christina and Heather were both VERY professional and helpful throughout the entire process. Carl, although he wasn’t directly involved in the process with me, he still came and spoke to me and put in the effort to help make the experience a pleasant one. I would certainly recommend to anyone looking to change the way they see things to go to Stanton Optical.

Great service from the company and the staff members. I had a great experience last year that I had to come back again. Today June 15, 2019 I had my eye exam for free with the purchase of glasses. The good news it was buy one get one. So I got two pair of glasses for the price of one. Liza was helping me pick out my glasses and I think we had about 9 pair to narrow down from. After a long narrow down she helped me get my pair of glasses. Liza did such a get job that I would be back next just for her. If anyone need to a place to get an eye exam and great customer service you will not go wrong with Stanton Optical and ask for Liza.

Had a great experience selecting eyeglass frames with Carl Thompson in the optical section of this office in NE Columbia, SC. Carl was very knowledgeable about the different frame types and materials and did a great job of answering all of my questions. He didn’t steer me towards any particular brand of eyewear nor did he steer me towards any price level. He just listened and found cute frames that met my wants and needs. He thoroughly explained the pricing and my print out of all costs. He was very patient and a pleasure to work with today. I would definitely have Carl assist me again with my choices. I would have loved to have had a similar experience with my doctor who did my exam there, but since I didn’t, I am thankful that Carl’s pleasant demeanor made my overall experience worth the trip. Thanks, Carl!

Overall the place is great! The doctor the did the eye exam was very professional and there is a large selection of frames to choose from. The wait was a bit long but that is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The nice lady that took care of us, Liza, was excellent! She clearly explained the options when purchasing glasses and was very friendly. I am very pleased with my experience at Stanton!

I was impressed by their selection, and Carl provided excellent customer service. I shop for glasses maybe once every two years, and I always forget how difficult it is to find frames that fit well, since my face isn't very wide. I'd been to a few other places before visiting this store and just didn't see anything I found appealing. Even through I arrived about 30 minutes before they closed, Carl helped me walk me through the selection, and we ended up finding frames that look and feel great on my face. Very pleased, would highly recommend Stanton Optical.

By far the best experience I’ve ever had in a retail/medical setting! I booked my appointment online about three days prior to my visit. The online process was quick and easy, they have automated system which calls to remind you also! During my visit, I was blown away by everything. I was seen almost immediately after I signed in, the optometrist who conducted my exam was quick, effective, and kind. But the absolute best part was Ms. Jocelyn Hill. I would get a new pair of frames every day just to work with Ms. Hill! She is a super sweet young lady, very knowledgeable in her field and very warm with her customer service. After my exam, she found several pairs of frames for me to try and assisted me with finding my perfect pair! Not only that, she got me a great deal and I ended up going home with two cute pairs of frames within less than a hour. Ms. April also was a great help! She made sure my glasses fit me well and sold me on a lens cleaner kit (which they refill if you bring in the empty bottle so free warranty pretty much)! If you’re looking for an establishment that is local, determined to create familiarity, and is cost effective, please visit Stanton Optical!!!

My husband had an accident and lost his left eye. We came in with 1/2 of his old glasses in hopes of finding a frame to use his old lens in. We were nicely greeted by Autumn. She and Doug were very sympathetic to our situation and within minutes we had a new pair of glasses in the works for him. Autumn was concerned that his old lens was not polycarbonate and she worked it out so that we would have the safest lens in order to protect his remaining eye. She was very helpful and very nice in the times that we have come to get glasses for my daughter. I will definitely return and recommend Stanton Optical to my friends and family.

My husband and I had a last minute chance to get our eyes checked and they got us in within an hour(I called ahead). Everyone was extremely friendly. The gentleman that assists the doctors was so nice and very fun to be around. Alyssa helped us with our glasses and purchases. She was fantastic. There was no pressure on anything and she was genuinely honest and helpful. She was so patient with us when it came to our indecisiveness. I’ll recommend Stanton to friends and family!One thing, nothing against anyone in there, you should really add a Christmas tree ???? ☺️

I went to the store with my dad to help him get new prescription sunglasses. The GM, Autumn, provided superlative customer service, as well as Doug!Please understand that I wasn't in the market for new glasses, but the friendly staff and "no pressure" atmosphere led me to purchase a pair of prescription sunglasses also. Autumn and Joe knocked it out of the park!My dad and I entered this store thinking it was going to be like Lenscrafters, or some other big box eyeglass retailer; boy were we happily mistaken. Besides the outstanding attention provided to us, the prices were unbelievable......no games......no long wait....just a GREAT experience.

Great, cozy little place that is rather unassuming but has a great selection of inexpensive, designer glasses. I was thoroughly impressed with the atmosphere and the honesty of the staff (especially the doctor). From the Frame Specialist to the Op Tech to the Eye Doctor herself, this is a great place to get your next pair. We'll definitely be back for a few more pairs for myself and my wife and will return in 2 years for a new prescription as well.
