Waco Optical gives our patients the option and convenience of filling their eyeglass prescription in-house. Our opticians have a combined experience of nearly 90 years in helping patients select the proper lenses and frames that fit their
life-style. The professional fitting by our trained opticians assure patients that they are getting not only the proper prescription, but also the proper alignment of the lenses.  The combination of these two factors is critical for comfortable vision with their glasses. Our frames vary from light-weight, flexible, strong, to hypoallergenic. We cater to the budget-minded and also carry high-end designer frames and sunglasses. 

We are also very proud to announce that we have TWO opticians (David and Laurie) who are certified by the American Board of Opticianry!
