The opticians on this list have  been recommended by our customers, have previously cut lenses into our frames or have agreed to fit lenses into other people’s/our frames when contacted by me.  The ones that say  “ask for” are opticians I have spoken to over the phone when looking for people to recommend. I have never had anyone turn me down so if you can’t find someone close enough to you on this list just go online and look up “best opticians” (on Yelp) in your area and then try calling them first before going there.  Don’t bother with chains or big box opticals, they are not a good fit.
