I broke my usual pair of glasses and my backups kept falling off my face. The woman who helped me couldn't have been nicer. She handed off my glasses (which were purchased at another store) to a colleague for an adjustment and made suggestions for fixing my regular pair. Outstanding.

Very knowledgeable and meticulous...

My wife and I have been buying our eyeglasses at Optical designs for years. Dr. Goldman is great. Very knowledgeable and meticulous. The staff is extremely helpful and very experienced. Once I get the prescription, they sit down with me and explain all the options. They are good listeners, have an amazing eye for style and actually better than me in picking designs that fit my look and needs. I had Ilana and she was amazing. They always have diverse styles and top quality selection.
