I&I Optical (located inside SMO) contains a wide variety of eyeglass frames to choose from, making SMO your one-stop-shop for all of your vision needs. We offer vision solutions that fit your lifestyle and your budget.
Opticians are technicians trained to design, verify and fit eyeglass lenses and frames, contact lenses, and other devices to correct eyesight. They use prescriptions supplied by ophthalmologists or optometrists, but do not test vision or write prescriptions for visual correction. Opticians are not permitted to diagnose or treat eye diseases.
I&I Optical has two knowledgeable and friendly opticians with over 75 years of experience between them. They are ready to help you find the perfect frame and to navigate/explain your insurance so you understand exactly what you're getting and how much it will cost you out-of-pocket. Need a new nose pad, lose a screw, or just need an adjustment? They're ready to help you with that too! Just stop in and we'll take care of it at no charge (no need for an appointment).
We offer a variety of lenses to meet your vision needs. We offer thin and more lightweight lenses along with multi-focal lenses, Transitions® lenses, Crizal anti-reflective coating and more. After your eye appointment, meet with one of our opticians who will make recommendations and help choose the right lens for your eye based on our expert eye exams. Did you have an eye exam somewhere else? We accept outside prescriptions for glasses, so bring yours in and we'll make sure you're taken care of!
We also offer a wide selection of sunglass options. Sunglasses are not just for style, but also protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.
Our on-site lab can make your prescription lenses available the same day or the next day, in most cases. We can also make sunglasses for almost any frame we offer and make them available to you quickly.
The eyeglass frames you choose are important to you. They are also important to SMO. That's why we offer more than 1,500 frame options that will fit any style. We stock a variety of styles and colors for men, women, teens and children giving you a large selection at competitive pricing that will fit any style and budget. Some of our frames are available in fashion-forward styles from designers such as Columbia (we're the only optical shop with Columbia frames in the area), Dragons, Ray Ban, Nike, Kate Spade, Tommy Bahama, Vera Bradley, Harley Davidson, Marc Jacobs, Sacks 5th Avenue, Wiley-X, Flexon by Marchon, and many others. Our opticians will be happy to assist you in finding the right fit and style, and will also help you review your insurance coverage to assure there are no surprise costs.
Technological advancements in contact lens design have benefited our patients in a variety of ways. Contacts now fit your style in terms of how often you want to change your lenses and what best fits your eye shape and vision needs. Contact lenses can correct your vision while remaining comfortable and practically unnoticeable. I&I Optical offers many different contact lens options including ACUVUE Oasys (2-week lenses) and the new ACUVUE Vita (1-month lenses).
You can get more than just glasses or contact lenses through I&I Optical. We offer a range of accessories including: eyeglass cleaner spray, microfiber lens cleaning cloths, eyeglass chains, sports straps, clip-on sunglasses, over-the-counter reading glasses or sunglasses, eyeglass cases, safety glasses, magnifiers, and more.
Beyond the typical optical accessories, we also stock Oasis Tears (for dry eyes), Cliradex wipes and Blephadex foam (daily lid, eyelash and facial cleansers), and a variety of orthoptic eye patches for treatment of strabismus/amblyopia/etc.
