Spending time selecting eye glass frames is fun with Dorothy. Making this kind of purchase isn’t easy, and with her expertise, and prices, I am really happy with my glasses
I just picked up my glasses Saturday and love them. I love them more because as soon as I put them on i could ‘see’. I say that because I made the mistake of going to a ‘chain’ eyeglass store and each time I picked up my glasses I had to search to find the ‘spot’ I could see from. I was impressed from the moment I went in. I’m very pleased with the selection, service, expertise and would highly recommend them.
This is the best place to get glasses. I wear a small frame and their selection was fantastic. They took a lot of time and patience with me during the selection process. The turn around from purchase to pick up was fast. They felt right from the minute I tried my new glasses on!
I highly recommend this business!
Great selection of glasses in a really comfortable setting. Dorothy was incredibly helpful when it came to picking out shades that are great for my face. I get compliments most every day! (yes today too)
When I went to pick up my new eyeglasses at Optical Alternatives the moment I put them on I could see better than I ever have in my entire life. Crystal clear vision with no distortions in the lenses. I can’t tell you what a great experience I had at this store. The staff was very knowledgeable and professional. They helped me choose the style of frame that fit my style. Dorothy explained why she liked certain frames on me. When it was time to make the final decision I was confident I was making the right choice,”edgy but not trying too hard” is what they said about my selection. My 23 year old Daughter loves them too and that doesn’t happen often. I would definitely recommend Optical Alternatives!
After years of disappointments at the big eyeglass chains, I asked my optometrist for a store recommendation and she suggested Optical Alternatives. I could not be more satisfied with this business. I received very helpful opinions on the frame selection. They offer very unusual and on trend frames that you won’t see on everyone on the street. A couple of weeks after having a rough adjustment to my new progressive prescription lenses, I stopped by the store. Dorothy checked my vision and determined that I needed a tweak on my distance part of my lenses. I returned to the eye Doctor and got the new script. Optical Alternatives replaced the lenses at no additional cost! The service here is personal and top notch. Both Dorothy and Cindy are licensed Opticians so you won’t be fitted for glasses by a novice. I highly recommend this business store for all your eyeglass needs.
