  • "The best pair of glasses I have ever had. With -8.5 vision it's been impossible to get a pair of glasses that didn't weigh a hundred pounds. Dr. Matt took care of that! From 9mm thick lenses to 5mm thin, and a fraction of the weight."
    Justin D.
  • "Chill spot, great service and selection."
