EXCELLENT OPTICAL STORE!!!!! – I have finally found an eyewear store that not only has a fabulous selection of glasses but did a great job on making my lenses too! I have a strong prescription and they helped me pick out a pair of frames that not only look great on me but make my lenses look really thin. I feel much more confident wearing glasses. They have also been great at replacing lenses in frames that I already owned. Their Optometrist was really nice and very thorough with her examination. I can't imagine going anywhere else to get glasses. I highly recommend 20/20 Optical.
Buyer beware -- I second that! – As a lifelong glasses wearer, I can tell you that 20/20 Optical on 8th Street in NYC is the ONLY glasses stores where I've had a negative experience. Right after dropping hundreds of dollars there on one pair of Oliver People's frames, they destroyed a second pair of glasses. I asked them to fix them and a week later they handed them back to me in even worse condition. And it was obvious--one lens was significantly larger and differently shaped than the other. I asked the store owner to fix it one more time and he refused. Then, he had the gall to kick me out of the store while screaming and swearing at me! It was if I hadn't just spent a good chunk of money there! But, never again!
Excellent Service! – Well...I didn't get my glasses from there but I was walking by and as my 2+ year old frameless Silouette Titans (which had never been adjusted) were falling off my face, I went in. The guy spent about 10 minutes making them perfect (these frames don't have screws so it takes some finesse) and now they are good as new. NO CHARGE. Thanks Guys. I got your card, when I get a new prescription I know where I'm going.
Optical extroadinare! – 20/20 is the best! The opticians Michael and Michael are adorable! I have never had a problem with any of my frames even with my difficult perscription!!! Selection and prices at 20/20 are also great. I would highly recommend 20/20 to anyone!
BUYER BEWARE!!! – These people are crazy! I came in here a couple of months ago and spend over $900 bucks on a pair of Oliver Peoples frames with some fancy progressive lenses. (I got ripped off!) When I called to check on my glasses the guy on the phone was blah and indifferent. "hey dude I just spent $900 buck. be a little more friendly". Anyway, I pick up my glasses and I'm having difficulty getting used it these things. I was told that I'll get used it and that it'll take some time. 4 weeks later and I'm still not used it. I go back to resolve this issue and I get nothing but hassles. Finally I just wanted my money back. Guess what? NO REFUNDS. STORE CREDIT ONLY. That's just BS. People, if you can avoid this place, DO!
