I highly recommend them if you need your eyes checked and prescription reviewed. Office is clean, people are nice. The appointment was on time and went well, my prescription was re-evaluated, and I think they zeroed in correcting my prescription better than anyone else ever has, that was very important, and I feel great with the current prescription given to me. They have very nice eyeglasses, types I have purchased before from other places, but I found their prices to be high for the frames I chose and had them price, so I didn't buy any eyeglasses there because of the price.

My little grandson and I were wrestling as he loves to do and my glasses got the worst of it. I thought the Oakley frames were probably beyond repair and they were not new frames. Unfortunately I was right about the frames. I was very pleased and surprised when they said they would replace the frames and even adjust the prescription slightly in the lenses. Dr Todd Hamilton at the Standish Office definitely went above and beyond to take great care of me and it is very much appreciated!

I have been going to see Dr. Hamilton at the Standish location for a few years and have always had a great experience! The atmosphere is always good and all of the staff treats everyone respectfully. They even took the time to explain my eyeglass prescription so I could price out glasses online and didn’t give me or my husband a hard time about not getting both of our glasses through them. Excellent service all the way around!
