Are you tired of going back to the place you purchased your eyeglasses or sunglasses, with a question or for an adjustment, only to learn the optician you were working with is no longer there? Would you like to see the same optician every time? That is exactly what you get at Brighton Optical. Our skilled opticians love what they do, and they love working with our customers. They will be here for you when you have a question or need an adjustment.

Stop in to view the latest styles and fashions on display. Our large selection contains a variety of the latest styles and fashions, in every price range. All eyeglasses are made right here in Buffalo NY, at our Tonawanda office. Repairs are done on the premises, as well, and can often be done while you wait.

We have convenient hours that span evenings and Saturdays, and we provide eye examinations by our staff Doctors of Optometry. You can park right at our door and enjoy our friendly service.

Ask Questions


Brighton Optical Offers An In-House Lab?

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.
