I understand that most reviews for a service based business end up being from people who have had bad experiences and if you had a good experience, well... that's what you expected to have so no need to right a review. But I think there needs to be another voice here. My family and I moved here a year ago and I've had a good experience each time I've come. True, the first time we had a long wait but they had a lot of customers. True, there was some upselling but that's the nature of business. Each time I've been there they have worked to give me free upgrades and this last time, the turn around time was spectacularly quick (3 days). I have a hard time rating any expenditure of money, "Loved it! Five stars" but I don't have any reason to give my experience at Stanton less than that.

This was one of the worst medical experiences I've ever had. I've been wearing glasses for two decades and loved my previous eye doctor but recently moved to Madison. The Optician was beyond unprofessional - he was downright rude. First, he was impatient with me as soon as I walked in. He sped through the exam to the point of my confusion. He used terms that I didn't know and when I said I didn't understand he stalked off huffing. Once I put in the new contacts, he kept asking me if I was sure I couldn't see the letters.. what did he think I was lying? At one point I was so insulted I laughed at him when he questioned me for the FOURTH time whether I was sure I could see? His exam room was disgusting. The trash can was overflowing and there were empty contact containers just strewn all over his desk. To be fair, the techs were all friendly and helpful, although clearly overly busy. The glasses selection was basic but decent and if you're looking for more high-end frames don't go here.

I should of checked some of these reviews before putting my fiancee and i this situation. Stanton does not fulfill their promise to customers. First of all 3 weeks past still haven't heard a word on the status of our glasses. Second, after doing further research, we could of saved more money and time buying designer glasses else where. I hope this won't happen to you, save yourself the trouble.

Never again!! It has been 6 weeks and I still don't have my 2 pairs of glasses. First pair had one lens that was not a transition. They had my computer glasses the same prescription as my regular glasses!! Second time around I noticed the glasses were thicker than coke bottle bottoms and so heavy they were impossible to wear for any length of time. Hope the third time is a charm. Employees were helpful. Manager was a joke!! First time he made me wait 30 minutes while he ran around the store looking for someones glasses. Second time he was just plain rude!! And I was just on the phone with them now and the third time is not a charm. One pair is ready and the other is not!! Unbelievable!! Save yourself a lot of grief - go to Lenscrafters!!

I don't know why everyone is so up in arms over that place. I was greeted right when I walked in. They gave me my exam right when I scheduled it for and they identified the exact problem I had with my eyesight. I got my prescirption, picked out a pair of lenses with the help of one of their sales people and was out the door in less than a hour. Overall an excellent expereince!

I had an excellent experience with Stanton Optical East in Madison, WI. I returned for eye exam adjustment and received super comfortable contacts and a prescription with better clarity than I had previously. Their staff were knowledgable, helpful and meticulous.
