Common Questions About Our Eyeglasses Services

Do I Need an Appointment to Pick Out Eyeglasses?

No. Walk-ins are welcome during regular practice hours at our Gainesville Optical Shop on NW 8th Avenue, where we have three licensed opticians to serve you.

Will Someone Help Me Pick Out Frames?

Yes. An optician will work with you to choose your perfect eyeglasses. We begin by analyzing your prescription and talking to you about your specific eyeglasses and lifestyle needs. Then comes the fun part! Your optician will help you select from hundreds of designer frames to find the perfect look for your individual style.

Can I Bring My Prescription from Another Eye Doctor?

Yes. We accept outside prescriptions.

Can You Put New Prescription Lenses in My Existing Eyeglasses Frames?

Yes. And, if you originally purchased your existing frames from us, we can do so without you having to lose the use of your eyeglasses during the process. If your frames were purchased elsewhere, we will need to send them to our lab, which usually takes about 10 business days.

Do You Accept Vision Insurance Plans?

We accept both VSP and EyeMed for comprehensive eye exams, contact lenses and eyeglasses.

Can My New Eyeglasses be Made the Same Day?

No. Quality lenses take more than one day to fabricate. Our process ensures you get top-of-the-line eyeglasses to reliably bring your vision into focus.

I Have a Difficult Prescription. Can You Make My Eyeglasses?

Yes. Our experts can fill any type of eyeglasses prescription…and we love a good challenge!
