Have you ever had a perfectly good pair of glasses that had a pin fall out of the temple or have the hinge break? Well, I have! And I sure didn't want to pay $400 for a new pair of glasses!
Dan has 35 years experience as a licensed optician, 17 years in that location and he has seen practically anything that can go wrong with glasses. There's an amazing assortment of frames, temples and parts in the shop that Dan has accumulated over the years, to use as spare parts, so he can handle most any issue with your glasses.
As I was waiting my turn, I watched the man in front of me describe a problem with his glasses that had lost the pin that holds the lens in the frame. Within minutes, Dan replaced it and tightened it down so it would never fall out again. The customer was delighted!
All for the total cost of a few minutes of my time and $15! What a phenomenal deal!
What an amazing savings! Instead of $400, I only paid $15!
