His beautiful space is warm and welcoming, just like him, and he always has a fabulous selection of frames including all the latest styles and always on trend. He takes as much time as necessary to make sure that the fit and style are perfect for the individual, and you never feel rushed while you are with him. He is and absolute professional and I recommend him without reservation!" - Monica M.
"Bryon personifies what one only finds in a handful of professional practitioners: a commitment to excellence, personalized service, and a dedication to his client base that goes well beyond expectations. There simply is no other optical business in the area that provides this level of professionalism and care. And while one can pay a premium if you decide to select the most effective options currently available in the marketplace, you always receive great value and the same level of care no matter what choices you make. Bottom line, you get what you pay for, and the price differential between Optique Elegance and the chain stores is surprising less than one would expect given the variety of styles and the quality of the products and services." - Richard B.
