Colonial Opticians has been our go-to place for lenses and frames for decades! Everyone on staff is professional, helpful, proficient and caring. Never has a mistake been made on cutting any lenses, and that was not the case with other places. I recommend them highly.

Rita Weiss

This place has excellent customer service and an amazing selection of frames and sunglasses. If you can’t find what you want, they will order it! Anytime your glasses need adjustments, they are ready and willing. Very nice staff that helped pick out a flattering pair of glasses with me.
