Highly Trained Opticians…not just frame stylists.

The Eye Care Center’s team of opticians understands the importance of looking good in the right frame. In addition, we also have a thorough understanding of the science of optics and how a frame can also affect your visual results. That is something some of the boutique stores and other optical stores can't claim. We know how important it is for you to look great in your new frames, but we also have the expertise to assure that you see great as well! Different prescriptions require certain frame styles and lens treatments for your glasses to perform and also look terrific. Our team of highly trained opticians can guide you through this process. Our optical gallery has hundreds of frames from which to choose the perfect size, shape and color of frame that's right for all family members.


All prescription lenses purchased at the Eye Care Center carry a one time, 6-month warranty against normal wear scratches, manufacturer’s defects or breakage. If your lenses chip or break just return the broken lenses and they will be replaced at no cost to you. In addition, lenses purchased with premium anti-reflective coating carry up to a two year warranty against scratches and manufacturing defects. All of our frames carry a one year warranty. If for any reason your frame breaks or fails to work properly, simply bring it in and it will be replaced at no cost to you. If for any reason you are unhappy with your contact lenses within 60 days of your contact lens fitting, the Eye Care Center will gladly exchange your lenses or credit your account. In addition, we will warrant all contact lenses to be free of defects or we will replace them at no charge within 30 days of the date they were dispensed.

Competitive Pricing

At the Eye Care Center, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to wear the most updated, fashionable and sophisticated eyewear available and purchase their eyewear in a beautiful, stylish and comfortable setting. But we know that everyone has a different budget! In fact, you can get a complete pair of eyewear (frame and lenses) from $99 while still enjoying the care, dedication and service that you deserve. In addition, our contact lens prices rival that of not only our brick and mortar competitors, but also the web sale sites. We will also drop ship your order directly to you for your convenience, and still maintain the warranties that we would offer if you picked them up at our clinic. This is something many of the websites will not do.
