Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint was a great experience and my new glasses look slick! There is no sales pressure it's just always low prices. The staff will never force you for anything. Really nice brand frame selection and the staff members are nice as they can be. Had my frames ready for me the next day! They are really nice and accommodating, happy to have you come back in if you need adjustments to your frames. I'll be coming here again.

I Give Optical Warehouse Of Greenpoint An A+ In All Categories

If you're in the market for new eyewear and are looking for fantastic selection and even better service, you need look no further. While traveling in Europe, I saw a pair of sunglasses that I absolutely 'had' to have; upon returning home, I looked for them at a few places to no avail. Then, a couple of weeks later, I visited the Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint on 764 Manhattan Avenue and there they were. The staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and attentive. They sized my new pair perfectly, and even cleaned and re-sized the shades I was wearing, even though I had not purchased them at their store. I give Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint an A+ in all categories, and will definitely be back.

I recently needed my glasses repaired and didn't have time to go to my regular optometrist, so I stopped by Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint. The first time, I lost one of the nose pads on my glasses. They gave me a new one and put it on and I was out the door within minutes. I think it only cost few $, maybe less. The second time, I needed my glasses tightened. They also did that within minutes and didn't charge. Thanks Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint!! I will be back soon for my new eyewear.

Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint is Awesome with some of the coolest styles of glasses I've ever seen. I had a hard time finding anything that suited me personally, I was looking for a more industrial high-speed look, but these seemed to be more artsy styles. Still, a very very impressive selection, I bought Tiffany frame for me + lenses & surprisingly i got both of them at very reasonable price. Highly recommend checking this place out if you're a fashionista.

I love Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint! I commented to a friend that she had cute frames and asked where she got them and she told she found them here! So upon her recommendation I checked them out and left with two frames for at very reasonable price! My friend's frames were Paul Smiths and they have other designer glasses as well and lots of choices to choose from. But I think mine were a total steal! The staff were super helpful and I had them give me a lot of input while picking out the right frames and it was awesome. I totally recommend Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint to anyone who needs new frames and cute stylish ones that aren't crazy overpriced! Great place and helpful staff and overall awesome place!

I Promise You a 5-star Experience.

I can't even begin to express the fabulous experience I had here at Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint. The entire time I felt comfortable looking through the wonderful collection of glasses the store offered and never felt pressured to buy something or try on something on that I didn't like. Agnes, was extremely approachable and friendly and didn't mind breaking down the prices for me. She also gave very useful advice without being too pushy, which was mindful. I found a pair of glasses that I really liked and wanted to compare prices online. Right away, Agnes offered to write down the model numbers for me knowing that I wasn't purchasing right at the moment. On top of the great customer service, the glasses collection was spectacular and versatile. There were glasses ranging cheaply from a hundred dollars to high-end brands like Prada, Gucci, and Armani that were about two-hundred to three-hundred dollars. The styles were also very up to date. Be sure to check Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint out! I promise you a 5-star experience.

I prefer the Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint best one.

I just picked up my new glasses from Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint and I am very pleased with them. I have bad eyesight but they got me the thinnest lenses and they have a very nice selection of frames. They didn't pressure me on anything. The salespeople as well as my eye examiner Dr. Tisdale (Violet, who is not only great by nature but also gorgeous) were all top notch. I cannot say that this place is inexpensive, however. I have VSP insurance and still ended up paying good price for my glasses. However I got the thinnest lenses as well as the anti glare coating, which amounted to about half that total. I never ever wore my old glasses but am really happy I actually have an alternative to my contacts now! I also went to the other optical stores before which was fine but I prefer the Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint best one. Check this place out if you need glasses. They are one of the few good places that take insurance.

Wow Such A Wonderful Staff!!

Wow such a wonderful staff!! I have ever been experienced at Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint, but they are just busy being the best optician/eyeglass joint in NYC still i never got any complaint with their service. The eye doctor Dr. Tisdale is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable and never made me feel stupid for doing things like wearing my contacts 3 days in a row. When i came in to pick out frames, they were unfailingly patient even when they had to repeat what was covered by insurance to my uncomprehending self-5 or 6 times. They have an amazing selection of frames in tons of styles and varying prices. I also ordered my contacts here and they arrive in 1-2 business days. Exceptional selection of frames and quality customer service and follow up. Highly recommended!

I don't normally review places, but Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint made me feel like I need to spread the word about this place. I read the already positive reviews and after haggling with my old optical store about my insurance, I bailed and checked out Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint. They were so nice and helpful as I tried on almost every pair of glasses and it was just such a positive experience. Affordable and accessible services for the working class in the heart of the brooklyn. I've recommended this place to a number of people and they've all come back with the same reaction. Fantastic, definitely recommended! Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint I love you...

Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint Is Nice Place.

Optical Warehouse of Greenpoint is nice place. Big store so you have plenty of room to walk around and look at all the nice frames. The staff (Agnes, Violet & Dr. Tisdale) is very friendly. I came with my sister and she actually tried on many frames by her own choice but Agnes helped us to find the perfect frame for my sister within out budget. The frames selection was very unlimited, but we managed to pick one that my sister liked. Eye exam took about 15-20 minutes and we were told glasses would be ready in an hour. I came back 30 minutes later and they already were. I will come back here in the future though (I live across the street).
