I visited Spex to see if they could help fix the frames of a couple pairs of glasses. Even though I didn’t purchase these from Spex, they were very welcoming and willing to help. One of the pairs had an arm that kept falling off. Since I didn’t buy them there, they didn’t have the materials they needed to fix it. But instead of saying no, they went out of their way to solve the problem, using spare materials for their own frames, even though they were not designed the same, and she was able to fix the arm back on. Most of all, I was surprised in the end that they didn’t charge me a single cent! Only thing to note: they are no longer on Stewart. Their new address is not on Google maps but it’s on their website. They’re in the medical dental building.

Spex were a huge help to me! I was on a trip from out of town for Labor Day and forgot my contact lenses. Spex gave me a complementary pair with my exact prescription and the staff were amazingly friendly. Highly recommended!

Excellent customer service. I was in town on business and needed an emergency repair on glasses. They were able to see me for the quick repair without an appointment and were able to quickly solve the problem.
