Very professional, very helpful, answered all my questions I had and let me know if I had any questions or concerns on the health of my eyes or problems with glasses to stop in or call and they would help me out! The gals helping me with the frames... were very honest and I valued their opinions on the frames we picked out and then they went over the costs line by line so I knew what we were getting! Thank you!read more
