We are one of the few opticians in the area with our own in house lab. This means we have the ability to make most eyeglasses right in our own office reducing the amount of time our patients have to wait for new eyeglasses. We can even make lenses for your existing frames without patients having to leave their eyeglass frames. We can also repair and solder most broken frames while you wait.


Sunglasses are equally important, and you want to be sure you have a stylish pair for every season! We offer some great brands, and even have prescription sunglasses too!
