I rarely write reviews, in fact, this is my second one ever. I am doing so, because the service level and overall experience was exceptional. It was my first time visiting Optical Designs (Wellesley). Samantha was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in selecting eyeglass and sunglass frames. The store has a great selection of brands and styles. For various reasons, I had to follow-up with the store when Samantha wasn't available, and Michelle and Joan assisted me on separate occasions. It was seamless speaking to all three of them, which never ever happens! I was blown away by the overall experience and I look forward to working with Optical Designs going forward and I also intend to schedule my next eye exam with one of their optometrists. By the way, my eyeglasses and sunglasses came in sooner than expected and I am delighted with them.

I have been going to Wellesley Optical for years . Dr. Prendeville is outstanding with what she does. She’s extremely thorough and so pleasant at the same time. They are extremely accommodating and offer a wide array of quality frames as well. I’ve never been disappointed.
