While visiting Seattle from Houston, the screw came out of the arm of my glasses. The lovely ladies at Spex were able to fix my glasses better than before with a locktite screw. I am so thankful to be able to use my glasses! Thank you so very much!

I had broken a pair of glasses I got from a different store and reached out to Spex to see if they could fix them. Anna was able to get me in right away and my glasses were fixed in minutes! They have such an fun collection of glasses and the store looked fabulous. I’ll definitely be stopping back here when it’s time to get my next pair!

Best eye care specialist in Seattle! I called to get my crooked eyeglasses fixed on the same day, and they were able to fit me into their schedule very easily. My glasses were not purchased at Spex, but they still fixed my glasses free of charge! The two women who helped me were the sweetest and kindest employees! I will definitely be getting my next eye exam done at Spex.
