What Are Our Patient’s Saying ?

Unbeatable Glasses Repair! Whilst visiting family over Christmas, my metal frames snapped the day before we were going on a day trip to NYC. The gentleman who helped me not only soldered my frames back together, but did so immediately, in under a half hour, and in such a manner that my glasses feel better than before!

Love this optical. They always take care of your needs! I have gotten a pair of designer glasses from them for excellent quality; it’s not the cheapest rates you’ll find for glasses, but the service is always impeccable. I’ve had to return to get my glasses repaired about 3x now, and each time, I’ve gotten them back good as new and for no charge. You can’t find that customer service anywhere else!

Menki Chen

Highly Recommended. Excellent Customer service and Quality of glasses. Dedicated owner and staff that provide an Positive and Friendly Customer Experience on every single visit.  I’ve purchased all of my glasses from Karen Optical for almost 10 years now and will continue to do so. Two Thumbs up. Great job!


Great service, Fast and courteous. Knowledgeable. AFFORDABLE! The folks at Karen Optical were able to get me new lenses for my glasses in two days. I tried them out then next day and they were perfect. Won’t ever go anywhere else again.

Karen Optical is a staple in the community. You don’t get the kind of personable service like you get here at franchise eye ware stores. They have helped me with everything from polarized sunglasses to everyday eyeglasses. They also have no problems trying to find you a frame that’s on sale to help you out a bit. I have always been treated like family.

Super friendly staff, they worked with me individually to help me select frames and narrow down all the possible choices. They also cut my lenses on the spot within 30 minutes once I selected a frame. Blue light/anti glare lenses work great and don’t have a strong tint like other blue blockers do. Will definitely continue to rely on them!
