I recently visited here with my 4 year old, as I had been told they have an amazing section of kids glasses and he had very specific requirements for his glasses (blue and orange 😂). Ruth Ann was the first person to ever correctly fit my child for glasses. The glasses he really wanted did not fit his nose bridge at all. She went above and beyond and ordered a pair that fit him in the colors he was demanding. They arrived, price was great and customer service was amazing. Highly recommend this place!
