We welcome you to visit our Optical Shop at The Eye Care Institute
We offer a wide selection of the latest designer frames and many high quality frames without the designer price tag.
Our Opticians (licensed professionals who fit and sell eyewear) have over 45 years of combined experience. We offer the latest in fashion frames, lenses, coatings and sunglasses. We guarantee quality products and service.
When you purchase your eyeglasses from our Optical Shop we guarantee your complete satisfaction. We want to be absolutely certain that the prescription written by our doctors is made into glasses that offers your personal best vision. The only way we can do that is by filling your prescription in our own Optical Shop. We want you to be seeing your very best and will take as much time as necessary to ensure your satisfaction.
We are pleased to offer fashion frames and quality lenses for children. Our frame collection includes K-12, Vivid Kids and Nike. We prefer to use phoenix lenses with our children's frames, which are lighter more durable and provide better clarity than regular plastic lenses. We also recommend anti-glare lenses which include scratch protection on both sides of the lens to provide 100% UV protection. We also offer a two-year warranty option.
Think you don't need new glasses?
While your prescription may not have changed since your last eye exam, frame styles change about every 4 months. So, while you might not "need" a new pair of glasses, if you consider that glasses are also a fashion item with styles that change several times per year, you will want new glasses. You don't own one pair of shoes and make them fit all occasions...so why own just one pair of glasses?
Frame adjustments, lens cleaning and minor repairs (such as screw replacements) are always complimentary. Feel free to visit our Optical Shop for these services, even if you did not buy your glasses from us.
Does all of this service sound expensive?
Many people have the misconception that purchasing your glasses at an ophthalmology practice is more expensive than buying from a mall store or a discounter. Please remember the incredibly low prices that are often advertised by others are often for discontinued merchandise without any warranty, or for basic products that require many expensive add-ons before the glasses are usable. We continuously monitor the mall stores and discount chains to make sure our complete pricing packages are competitive. If you find a lower price on an identical frame or lens just tell us -- we will be glad to match the price and you will be glad to know your own eye doctor is providing the guarantee on the product.
