So now I’ve bought glasses (3 pair) and contacts here, and I brought my husband for an mild eye injury. These guys are the best. It’s a bit out of my way and worth it. These guys are well trained, friendly, patient and thorough.

My glasses broke today and they were extremely helpful and friendly. I am not even a patient there. My next eye exam will be with them. Thanks!

I’ve been going to Overland Optical for my glasses/contacts since I was a little kid. Both locations (Overland/St.Charles) have an extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff that make you feel completely comfortable and at home. When I first started wearing contacts, their technician sat with me for half an hour helping me get used to taking the lenses in and out of my eyes. I will never go to another optician because I know that I will always be taken care of at Overland Optical. If you’re in the neighborhood, please do yourself a favor and swing by for an exam. You won’t regret it.

I’ve been using Overland Optical for well over a decade and have never had anything but OUTSTANDING care and service. Friendly staff and doctors, and they even laugh at my jokes, so that wins them serious points right there. In short, take “Highly Recommended” and nail three more “Highlies” and a whole raft of gold stars to it. Unless they kick my dog, or I become afflicted with amnesia due to an unfortunate bowling incident, I won’t go anywhere else for my vision care needs. Given that I don’t currently have a dog, and I don’t go bowling all that often, we’re “all good.” In all seriousness (as being serious is not my strong suit), as big as I am on convenience given my often hectic schedule, I’d go to Overland Optical even if they weren’t right around the corner from me. That’s how highly I recommend them.

I got my distorted glasses repaired on site, very quickly… The shop is really nice and bright, and the staff are very friendly and professional. It’s a small fix for my glasses, but the impression I got from this place met all my expectations and even beyond for professional eye care shops. I would come again if I ever need glass repairs or getting new glasses.

Anyone looking for a client focused and family friendly eye center should consider Overland Optical. My appointment was efficient and thorough. I enjoyed speaking with the friendly staff during my visit. Their concerns for my vision were expressed and explained in a manner that I could understand. I severely lack fashion sense and they helped me choose my frames from their large inventory; they have numerous styles for all members of the family. I am confident that you will be very satisfied with this choice for your eye care service.

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Schmitz and the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Overland Optical. I am new to wearing glasses, and the staff was extremely helpful with the entire process of understanding my eye exam and picking out the right pair of glasses. Dr. Schmitz was very thorough and really provided a personalized experience where she listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I could not be happier with the service and level of knowledge I experienced. I will definitely recommend Overland Optical to my friends and family.

I love Overland Optical! I’ve been going there for years, and I love Dr. Schmitz so much that I always go to the one on Woodson even though I now live in St. Peters. It’s worth the drive! The gals that take care of you are fabulous – customer service is a top priority with them, you can tell. I would highly recommend that you try it for yourself.

I have been going to the Overland office for several years now…I would never go anywhere else! The Doctors are so knowledgeable and really care about their patients. They ask questions about you health and any concerns or changes you might be having. The techs who help you pick your lenses and glasses are so nice and friendly too. I highly recommend this location.

Easily the best and most pleasant glasses purchasing experience I’ve ever had. The staff was informative, friendly and courteous. If I need anything eyeball related anytime soon, I will come here.

I am beyond pleased with the service I received. There was a slight issue with a pair of glasses I bought. The problem was truly a caveat emptor moment. I should have paid attention and I would have known the frames weren’t strong enough for me. During a visit to get my other pair tightened up I made a comment that I wasn’t impressed with the quality of the frames. BH took a look at the frames and attempted to fix them. He could not get them to tighten up due to the design. BH then showed me another frame that he thought would work well for me. He replaced my glasses with the new frames without any drama. Service like that is why I went to O.O. in the first place. I was not expecting that. I haven’t been here in years. Yet I was treated like I’ve bought every pair of glasses I’ve owned here. I will be buying all my glasses from here, now. Hands down best service I’ve had with an eye clinic. Thanks again BH. Much appreciated.

The staff and Doctors are wonderful. Good service and good people. I wish they had more low cost frame selections, the kind of ones that are covered under my insurance. Overall, a great experience.
