              I bought my current glasses from Overland Optical about five years ago, I stopped in to look at new frames and Teresa helped me find a new frame that I liked, they have a good selection and I went with Ray Bans that Teresa suggested. I like that they offer glass lenses, never buying plastic lenses again. They aren't cheap, but they are the best. I highly recommend them if you need their services.

              I love Overland Optical! I've been going there for years because of their excellent service and their awesome staff! Whether I'm getting an eye exam, fitted for a new pair of glasses, an adjustment, or just stopping by to say hello, I'm always greeted with a smile and made to feel welcome, while being waited on in a timely manner. Overland Optical has a phenomenal staff, so come see Theresa, Julia, Dr. Schmitz, or anyone else on their crew and you too will finally discover the Eye Care Center that you've been looking for!

              Maybe ?.

              It has been a couple years since I have had my eyes examined. Dr. Schmitt was on vacation, so there was another doctor filling in for her. She was very nice and thorough. She mentioned that I do need a prescription for night driving, but didn't force me to get them. Mentioned that if I wanted to get them now I could. Otherwise, the prescription would be on file for a year, if I wanted to come back and get them at a different time. All the ladies were polite and pleasant. I had some issues w/ my insurance & they were willing to call the company and try a couple of other things. Unfortunately, they were unable to get my insurance info during the visit. I was able to call back later that day with the correct eye insurance info & they said they would add it to my account and submit it to the insurance company.

              I had a wonderful experience with getting my glasses adjusted here. Everyone at this place was very friendly and the repair was done within a few minutes. Would highly recommend for getting glasses fitted, made, and adjusted.
