What Our Customers are Saying About Us...

"If you ever need a testimonial for your repairing of glasses, feel free to use my email address, name, or phone number. After receiving my repaired glasses, it is really not fair to call them repaired. The truth is, my glasses were totally reconditioned. In the interim between the time I was sending you an updated Rx for new lenses, to replace the scratched one in my glasses. I found that the VA now will replace damaged glasses… They arrived 2 days after your refurbished pair. There is NO comparison between the new pair, and your refurbished pair. After trying both pair of glasses,.."

"Whether you walk in off the street or shoot them a call, World Optic offers an incredible service with a "clear vision" of customer satisfaction. I have just recently ordered my 5th pair of glasses with them and each time I keep coming back because they stand behind their products and craftsmanship… There are not enough good things I can say about this crew, but just know that if you ever have a question, need an opinion or just want to make a hassle/pressure FREE order, then this is your one stop shop! They do it ALL at World Optic and they do it well."

"Phenomenal staff, so thorough, so helpful, the best service and quality thereof, with the best selection, better than Sunglass Hut and LensCrafters, beats them both and above all unlike those two big chains, World Optic will go the extra step & find & order the frames that you are looking for! When those other chains will simply say that model doesn't exist anymore. Thank goodness for World Optic, they are an excellent company. Thanks for everything guys, see you soon!"

"I'm thrilled with World Optic! Their customer service SHINES. Their online service is very user friendly and even though I managed to screw that up they were very patient and helped me straighten everything out. Their prices are great, they offer free shipping and with Yelp's coupon I saved even more. I would recommend them any day. I know I will be using them over and over again."

Lens Style

The lens style identifies what function the lens may serve, whether it is no prescription or a prescription lens to help address visual correction. The lens style helps to identify the lens' spherical power (Plus + or Minus -) or if it has no prescription. However, there are other faucets to prescription lenses like a cylinder and/or ADD power to accommodate correction needed for astigmatism and presbyopia.
