I have been an Alex Optical customer for 20 years and remember going to this fine establishment for all my vision healthcare needs when they were in Tower Plaza on Thomas Rd. What keeps me coming back to Alex Optical after all these years is the friendly and knowledgeable staff. I have gotten my eyeglasses at other places, but no place do I get the service as I get at Alex Optical. When I get my eyeglasses made at Alex Optical I know I am getting a good quality pair of glasses that will benefit me and my vision healthcare needs. Thank you Alex Optical and keep up the excellent work!!!!

Alex Optical is GREAT! I have read the positive reviews about Alex Optical and I agree. They really go out of their way to help you out. They are not a franchise, which is nice. I didn't realize that Alex Optical has been around since the Tower Plaza days. Since I bought my glasses from their Metro store, I have taken my friends, mom and sister as well. And they have loved the staff. They have such a range of product that it's hard not to find something you love. I love my rimless glasses! I have been recommending Alex Optical to everyone.

I agree with the first reviewer. And I have only had the exact opposite experience than the 2nd reviewer. My personal experience was that all of the employees and the owners were friendly, knowledgeable and responsive! I bought two pairs of glasses and one sunglasses. I referred a friend and she also bought several pairs of glasses there. I get compliments all the time and I have never seen anyone with glasses like mine. They are expensive but it's something people see all the time – your face! So to me, it's worth it!

Alex Optical is the BEST. Alex Optical has GREAT SERVICE. VERY REASONABLE PRICES for what they offer. I wanted a special type of frame and they were able to SPECIAL ORDER. I got this rimless pair of glasses and wanted the lenses to be a certain shape and they were able to do it. It turned out AWESOME. I went to Lenscrafters, EyeMasters and Costco but no one else could do get what I wanted. I got a CUSTOM shape, who else could say that!

Dr. Vu Truong Optometrist gave exceptional care. He allowed me to have a early appointment on top of his full schedule which his assistant requested. His prompt care relieved a very uncomfortable eye irritation which required medication. The intervention allowed me to arrive at the annual school nurse convention on time. The Optometrist, Pharmacist and Optometry Assistant offered thorough courteous and professional care.

Great doc, very nice staff, they knew how to explain my insurance. The doctor was very thorough and my glasses came out really nice. You get what you pay for! Not sure what others are complaining about but if you want dollar store prices go get cheap stuff that will break really fast than don't come here. This place definitely knows quality!!!

I really like Alex Optical because they offer great flexibility, allowing me to bring in my own frames. I enjoy their attention to detail and quality of workmanship. Larry exemplifies this in the quality of work and customer service skills. I would highly recommend Alex Optical to others, thanks!

Staff is friendly and thorough, but delivery is atrocious. 4 Weeks to get glasses? Really??? When the glasses finally arrived the office decided to close for the week. I had to ask that the glasses be mailed to my office. Ridiculous. Absolutely horrible delivery process.

I lost my glasses and they were able to replace faster than anyone else I found. I love them and the service they provide. The lab people worked so quickly and the product they provide is very high quality. I will recommend you guys to everyone.

The staff was professional and helpful they are the best! The main reason I chose to come here was because they have their own lab and return glasses to me quick. Other stores send them out so they always take a while to get here.
Tips & Advices
To find a professional that fits your needs and wants, look for an optometrist with the proper licensing and compliance with state-specific legalities as well as these qualities: attentiveness, ability to listen, ethics, compassion, ability to communicate effectively and willingness to spend time with patients.
Vision, like dental, is often an additional voluntary cost for employers who provide health care coverage. As a result, it may not be included in basic company-sponsored insurance. Those who do have access to this type of coverage - or Medicare - often only pay for a portion of their eye exam services.
The cost of an appointment with an optometrist varies based on the services required. While a typical eye exam can range from $50 to $250, depending on location. If if glasses or contact lenses are prescribed, or tests are needed, the overall expense of an optometrist visit can increase.
The American Optometric Association recommended that patients have their first eye exam at six months of age, followed by another at 3 years old, and again at school age. At that point, Regular annual exams are recommended.
Ophthalmologists are eye doctors that have received higher levels of training than both opticians and optometrists, and can also perform eye surgery when necessary. Opticians design and fit eyeglasses, frames, and lenses that are prescribed by optometrists and ophthalmologists. They do not perform vision tests or write prescriptions for visual aids. Optometrists fall between ophthalmologists and opticians. Optometrists can detect and treat eye abnormalities, prescribe lenses, and complete eye exams, but cannot perform eye surgery.
