Great Experience
I recently purchased new glasses at Spectacles and found it to be the finest experience I have had when buying glasses. My brother had recommended Spectacles as being an excellent firm which he has been dealing with for many years. Although I did not need an eye examination my prescription was filled perfectly. I will say without reservation that Joseph Haloua, the owner / optician, tried on at least a dozen frames and provided the most professional fitting I have ever received. I would not hesitate to recommend Spectacles for all types of vision needs.

Most expensive glasses shop ever
The frames I chose were $225 and was told the lenses to fit them would be $160. When I returned the next week, the lenses were now $290. With the eye exam, I was already looking at spending $440 in total. But, $570? So, I wanted to jot down style number of the frames to ask my optician friend in another state her opinion on if I really needed a certain type of lens to have progressives. When I got out my paper, the frames were snatched away. I was told they don't give out that information. (info right on the sidepiece) Before that, I had intended to return, because what is most important to me is the style advice and the doctor, both of which were good. Later, I found the frames online for under $150, which I imagine, is why they won't allow the style number to be looked at! Still, I would have returned just because I liked the people. Not now, not ever.

Great selection, thorough exam, helpful staff
I've been visiting Spectacles for years, and I can highly recommend them. Julie's exams are very thorough, and she will work with you to get your prescription to meet your needs (even if it requires followup visits to fine-tune). Her husband, Joseph, is the optician there, and he and their staff have always been willing to take the time that I needed to track down the perfect frame. The have a great selection of frames, too, across a range of styles and prices.\r\rThe shop is downtown, with easy access; there are two parking garages within a block of the shop.\r\rHighly recommended.

Disappointed
Usually this small company is quite pleasant to work with. My family and I have been regulars there for a few years.\rBut on this occasion, when I needed new glasses fairly quickly, they dropped the ball. \rTo start off, the expected wait time was a week, which I was willing to overlook because the owners went out of town and they are very accommodating people. But then, a week later, I called and called, leaving 3 messages on one day, another 2 on the following day and so on. Alas, out of the remaining employees working, no one returned my phone calls, even though they were aware of my desperate need for my new glasses. Their outgoing message was changed at one point, so I knew that my messages had been heard but ignored.\rGranted, they were/are remodeling, but that is no excuse to ignore the idea of customer service, especially to a loyal customer.
