Great doctor and staff!!! 2/2/2012

LOVED the frames, ended up buying two because I couldn't choose! One's got a lot of bling and a little funky the other a little more geek sheek. The staff helped me pick best colors and sizes. Not high pressure sales like some other places I checked out. Plus picked them up in an hour :) 2 Thumbs up! more

Amazing 4/14/2011

This is the best place to buy glasses. The sales staff was very kind and knew what they where talking about. My glasses came back perfect. Thank you to everyone at One Hour Optical and I will be buying all my glasses from you. more

made buying glasses enjoyable 4/2/2011

Great experience all around! Loved the doctor, got extra attentive service from the salesperson, and had more than enough styles of frames to choose from. I'm writing this because people don't take enough time to point the good experiences that we have with businesses. It seems more negative is online than the opposite. So here it is: I highly recommend them if you need glasses quickly and want to leave feeling that it was overall a great experience (I usually hate going to buy glasses). more

""We have a no refund policy"" 2/22/2011

Worst eyeglass experience of my life! Great doctor, but get your glasses someplace else. After 6 weeks I still didn't have my glasses, and they refused to refund my money. - ""we have a no refund policy"" is what they told me. Nice. more

Great Glasses shopping experience 9/20/2010

Usually I hate shopping for eyeglasses, though when I went ot One Hour Optical I had nothing but the best in service and selection. I loved their Doctor-Dr Lansink, and was very impressed with the variety of selection from inexpensive to high end. The store is also really beautiful and clean. I love my new glasses and would highly recommend for anyone to go there. more

Expensive 8/21/2010

I would not recomend this place to anyone. They are very expensive and they do not care about their customers. more

Great Doctor 7/25/2008

I use the eye doctor here though don't often purchase contacts or lenses here since there are less expensive places. But the doctor is knowledgable, friendly, and thourogh. Pros: Great Doctor Cons: Expensive Eye Wear more

I love this place!! 5/4/2008

I went into the store and was impressed by the decor and the kindness of the people working there. They answered all of my questions and got my unusual request...though they have a huge selection (that I will check out again), I'd already had my heart set. I wanted my vintage sunglasses tinted a color I knew but couldn't describe. I was treated with great enthusiasm and patience. At the end my glasses were done expertly and in no time. I love them. I was completely happy with the experience and would recommend them to anyone looking for glasses and fine service. more

Completely dishonest, horrible service, Do NOT shop at One Hour Optical!! 11/27/2007

DO NOT SHOP AT ONE HOUR OPTICAL! First, they do not have price tags on their frames. The sales person tries to ask about $100 more than other optical stores on the average pair of frames. With no prices posted, it's like shopping at a used car lot. I have a special prescription and every other optical store told me it would take up to two weeks to get the lenses. The only reason I shopped at One Hour Optical is because they guaranteed me they would have the lenses in three days. When I called three days later, they made up a huge lie about how they had mis-cut the lenses and needed to order new lens material. I called a few days later when they were suppose to be done for the second time. Again I was told some unbelievable story. In the end it took the full two weeks, as all the other optical stores had told me. The difference was I paid about $150 extra for frames and lens at One Hour Optical and still had to wait the entire two weeks. I cannot emphasize enough how much of dishonest scam this business is. Cons: Dishonest, Over-priced more
