Had a mishap of one of the lenses of my glasses pop out of the frame while we were on vacation and my spare pair had missed being packed. The staff, from the receptionist to the technician, were friendly, courteous, and efficient. They explained what they would need to do and advised me that there was a slight risk that my frames could be damaged. The fears were unfounded - their expertise had my glasses back to normal in no time at all...and they didn't even charge for the service! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing optical service and products. Will definitely be back the next time we're in town.
