What our Clients Say

What a wonderful shop! I was able to take my vintage cat eye frames here — something my doctor told me was definitely going to shatter if they replaced the lenses — and Lisa fit them with new lenses and quickly, too. Friendly service at this cute little family owned shop.

I couldn’t be happier with my new glasses. I found Hillcrest Optical through Yelp and thank goodness I did. Customer service is FANTASTIC! Lisa is knowledgeable and respectful. No pressure, advice given if asked for it and honest feedback about pricing, the quality of lenses, coatings, etc., and if you really need them. I have a pricey prescription. After years of doing the Lens Crafters thing – wait for a sale, have to get new frames, hustled buy to this or that, wait two weeks – I finally decided to try something else after I let myself be pushed into and putting up with ill fitting, frustrating glasses for a year. The frame selection at H.O. is huge – larger and more choices than Lens Crafters! If you cannot find what you want Lisa will look on-line for you. If you have frames you are attached to you can put your new prescription in them. The pricing was less than or equal to what I had to pay at Lens Crafters. Never going back to those guys. Hillcrest Optical has my business from now on

San Diego is blessed with a number of excellent optical establishments. Over the past 20 years, I have been fortunate to try quite a number of them. Again & again, however, I end up coming back to Hillcrest Optical. Not only is their selection of frames the most comprehensive (& classy) selection in town, but...THE SERVICE! The personal attention that you will receive here simply is nowhere else to be found. I've been wearing glasses since I was a kid, but from West Coast to East Coast, never have I found the person-centered, gracious, attentive service that I have received at Hillcrest Optical. Yes, you can find similar places that are top-of-the-line right here in good, ol' San Diego, but...why? Don't waste your time. Hillcrest Optical is what you want. Heck, I was just there today, & the service was as phenomenal as ever. 'Cheers.
