- $35 for an eye exam ($60 value) and $200 toward a complete pair of glasses with frames and lenses ($260 total value)
Since opening its first store in New York's Financial District 100 years ago, Sterling Optical has grown to more than 125 locations across the country. In addition to offering eye exams from certified optometrists, each Sterling location carries an expansive selection of frames that includes both budget-conscious styles and designer frames from brands such as Gucci and Michael Kors. Kids' glasses can be built with shatter-resistant lenses, and adults can opt for Transitions models, which automatically darken to protect eyes from harsh outdoor light or street hypnotists.
“Friendly fast service but expect to pay at least $40 more for any glasses plus lots of other add-ons”
