Optical Shop Q & A

What sets one optical shop apart from the next?

One of the most important features of an optical shop is their selection of glasses, frames and styles. At Astorino & Associates Eye Center, you can choose from more than 800 frames in stock, representing all the latest designer fashions and frame materials.

But they go beyond offering an exceptional selection of eyewear. The team at Astorino & Associates Eye Center includes a highly qualified optician who manages the on-site optical lab. 

David Greening is a licensed American optician (ABOC) and one of only a few opticians in California to have an honors degree in ophthalmic dispensing. At the optical shop, he oversees the optical lab, using his extensive experience to create customized eyewear that fits your style while perfectly correcting your vision.

How soon will I get my eyeglasses from the optical shop?

With the personalized service and on-site optical lab, you can count on a fast turnaround. No one waits long, but same-day service is possible for patients who only need single vision eyeglasses.

Do I need an appointment to get glasses at the optical shop?

New and current customers who have a prescription are welcome to walk into the optical shop any time it’s open. If you don’t have a prescription, you need to schedule an appointment for an eye exam by calling Astorino & Associates Eye Center or booking online.  

The team at the optical shop is always available to help you choose the frames that fit your personality and style, and then the optical lab creates your glasses. However, if you don’t have the time to sort through eyeglass frames in the shop, you can begin with their online eyeglass guide.

What is the online eyeglass guide?

The online eyeglass guide is an interactive tool that guides you through a series of questions about you, your lifestyle, and eyewear needs. As you answer the questions, the guide brings up new photos of suggested eyeglass frames that fit your profile. By the time you finish, you receive specific suggestions tailored to meet your needs.

Can I get contact lenses and specialized eyeglass lenses at the optical shop?

Yes, the full range of contact lenses and specialized eyeglass lens treatments are available at Astorino & Associates Eye Center. Whether you need hard, soft, daily wear, or extended wear contacts, or you want specialized eyeglasses that filter blue light or reduce glare, you’ll find them at the optical shop.

Visit the optical shop any time or schedule an appointment for an exam and eyeglass prescription by calling Astorino & Associates Eye Center or using the online booking feature.
