    America's Best: Eyeglass or Contact needs

    by dustmon Written Dec 14, 2012

    While you are in the area, if you have any needs about glasses or contacts, this is the place....I went in to buy some new glasses and they had a deal, 2 pair for about $120 including a new eye exam. I picked out some regular glasses and also picked out some Raybans (really cool looking!) and got both prescription pairs for about $140.
    The real deal is that 4-5 days after buying, a cheap pen leaked in my pocket with the sunglasses right there---ink got all over the plastic lenses and I didnt see til the next day! Took them back up there to see if they knew of something to get the ink off, and Joshua Ricks (general manager) and his staff used alcohol wipes to get all the ink off---it took them about 20 minutes...Some of the tint had come off from the ink for some reason, and Josh offered to retint them if I could come back the next day---Went back the next day for absolutely new looking glasses at no charge.....
    Great job Josh and staff!

    What to buy: glasses, contacts

    What to pay: inexpensive
