What People Say About Us

Always friendly and helpful even though I bought my glasses here years ago. Am a repeat customer and hope to again soon.

This place is the best!  Jenny is amazing – she will help you find some terrific frames, probably things you wouldn’t have chosen for yourself but won’t be able to live without.

Kristen V.

Everyone there is awesome, make buying glasses fun and they have the greatest selection of fun and funky styles. They also stand by their products, do repairs on the spot if possible, and work with you if something doesn’t fit correctly. I love this place.
