Thank you for visiting our website! And an especially big thank-you to all of our customers for supporting local businesses like MSO here in Crete.  We are also very appreciative of your referrals of family members and friends to come and see us, thank you! 

This is our eighth year on Main Street, and we wouldn't be here without you! 

We are located next door to the Edge Coffee House (excellent drinks and tasty treats) and a few doors north of Aurelio's Pizza (try the spinach and hot jardinaire pizza). 

We accept most insurance plans!

There are over 1,500 frames on display, and just recently we added Silhouette Eyewear and Vera Bradley to our collections, the Silhouette Titanium frames are hand-made in Austria, here's the link:

We also added the Europa Collections, including Cinzia, Michael Ryen, and Scott Harris:

We are located in one of Crete's oldest commercial buildings (from the late 1800's), and invite you to stop in and take a look around. With 1,500 frames on display (most of these styles are not available at the mall stores or the chains) you are sure to find something you'll like! Some of the more popular styles are from Armani, Gucci, DKNY, D&G, Ray-Ban, Harley-Davidson, Candies, Guess, Timex, Vera Bradley, Banana Republic, and Liz Claiborne, but there are many, many more!

The new Hi-Definition Digital progressive and single vision lenses are generated by a computer program that optimizes the lens design based on your prescription and frame choice...which creates custom-made, one-of-a-kind, digital lenses just for you; the vision experience has been compared to the difference between watching regular TV and HI-DEF TV. 

Other frames on display are from Perry Ellis, Revlon, Cover Girl, Hush Puppies, John Deere, Altair, Elizabeth Arden, Joseph Abboud, Tommy Bahama, Thalia, Esquire, Tehama, Bugle Boy, John Lennon, Alfred Sung, Jones New York, Vera Wang, Wiley-X, Sigrid Olsen, Pierre Cardin, Gant, Converse, Nike, and Nickolodeon.

For prescription safety eyewear, we have over 100 frames on display, from Titmus (UVEX), OnGuard, Hudson, ArmourX, Art-Craft and Wolverine, from basic to fashion.

Are you a bifocal wearer, and the computer's driving you crazy? We have a couple of lens solutions available that can make those hours much more pleasant; no more searching for the sweet spot, no more neck-aches, and a lot less head-turning. Our customers that use them have only one regret:  that they didn't start using them years earlier!

We have a lens lab on-site, so we can get your new glasses to you quickly, and can also complete most repairs the same day. If you have a broken frame, but the lenses are still in good shape, we can almost always re-cut your lenses into a new frame, and save you from having to buy a complete pair.  If you have some expensive non-Rx sunglasses and the frames are still in fine shape, but the lenses are damaged, we can replace these with (often-times) much better non-Rx polarized lenses for much less than a new pair would cost; we can also do mirror coatings on these lenses!  (We stock these lenses, so the turnaround time is usually same-day).

Drop in or give us a call for more information, and thank you again for visiting our site.

Dr. Tom & Mark & Katey & Sherry
