Welcome to Eastern Shore Optical

Serving the Eastern Shore since 1996.

  Hi Dawn;

I’d like to thank you very  much for your help in  finding new frames  for my wife’s glasses today. She’s very pleased with the new frames, they fit very well, and  she wishes to thank you too. We’re both relieved to get them fixed and I’m personally very pleased with the exceptional service I received.  Thanks again.

Dear Joe

I see you have a new website and would like to offer a testimonial for your site as you are hands down the best (and friendliest!) Optician I have had in my 40+ years of wearing glasses.  As a customer for the past 16 years, I can highly recommend not only you, but your staff as well; who are not only very knowledgeable, but also very friendly and helpful...from fixing glasses to fitting new frames or recommending the right lens.  So many thanks for everything....and see you next year for more new glasses!
