Have to share that I had an astoundingly extraordinary experience at Overland Optical in Overland today! My unfortunate encounter with a local competitor last year prompted me to schedule an appt with them, after a 3 year absence. I have to say, the only thing that's changed is advances in technologies, because their outstanding, personalized service is always bar none. All of the staff were beyond professional, courteous, and, above all, welcoming to me as a valued customer. I'm so proud to say that, not only were Marcy, Will, Julia & Dr Schmitz extremely accommodating and meticulous to my needs from testing to picking out frames, but they took time to answer questions, got to know my preferences, and, most graciously used my preferred name and pronouns. I was so elated by their attentiveness, that I could cry. That level of understanding and care is deeply felt and appreciated by members of the LGBTQIA+ community like nothing else! Testing was a breeze, everything was explained in plain language with great detail, and I even had a fun time picking out my new frames. I can't wait to try them out! Next time, when I, or someone else needs vision care, I highly recommend Overland Optical. ❤️🌈
