Designer Frames

Glasses, more than ever, say a lot about your personality, style, and fashion. Selecting the right frames can be confusing and daunting, especially for first time patients. Our staff has a great deal of experience helping patients find the best frames for them - taking into account budget, medical needs, lifestyle, and appearance. At The Optical Shop, we are here to help you find the perfect look, while also correcting your vision. There is no replacement for professional help finding the right frames for your face, but the guide below can give you an idea of what to look for.

Eyecare Services

We are dedicated to providing the highest level of service so you can have the vision you deserve. We truly believe in routine eye examinations so that you can see as clearly as possible. Once you have to get glasses or contacts, it is even more important to watch the health of your eyes. You also need routine checks to ensure your prescription has not changed.

  • Since moving to Florida, I've gotten my glasses at The Optical Shop. The staff is wonderful! Unfailingly enthusiastic and helpful, while also being refreshingly human and funny. Everyone is highly trained and skilled, as well, and there is a wide range of frames to choose from. In fact, I love my new glasses and have gotten many compliments! I recommend The Optical Shop--and its marvelous staff.

  • I saw Dr. Kuplicki. He did an awesome job. I was wearing contacts that were over correcting one eye. He found the problem and fixed it. Now I can see far and near with my contacts without having to use readers. He was patient, nice and competent. The staff were super kind and helpful. Very friendly. I will continue to come to this establishment. Great service!
