What You Need to Know About Stanton Optical

By Staff

Stanton Optical is a leading national retailer operating in 14 states with 44 stores, with on-going expansion plans that will open 10-plus stores each year for the next several years.  Headquartered in Palm Springs, Florida, they are a leader in the prescription eyeglasses and contact lens industry.  Operating with the focus on quality eyecare delivery and striving for the highest in patient satisfaction, Stanton Optical has embarked on a journey to invest heavily in their people, their stores and their lab. This philosophy will allow Stanton Optical to continue to provide high-quality eyewear at all price points throughout their locations. 

One key aspect of their growth is to add technology and people to their in-house Rx lab so that they can continue to deliver high-quality eyewear in a timely fashion and maintain their high standards.  This started with a recent addition of Matt Ontko as director of their in-house lab services.  Daniel Stanton, company co-founder said, “Bringing Matt and his experience on board to help run our lab was a key addition to our management team.  His experience will help drive our lab to the next level.”

 In order to continue to meet Stanton Optical’s service levels and achieve the turn times they strive for, Ontko has added several key pieces of equipment and technology to their lab.  “We have partnered with Schneider Optical Machines as our key equipment supplier to help support the growth we are experiencing,” said Ontko.

“We had some Schneider equipment in place before, so when it came to evaluating equipment suppliers for our next growth phase it was a no-brainer for us.  Schneider continues to give us every processing advantage that we need to achieve our targets and is a true partner in every sense of the word.  When we need service or a simple consultation – they are always available at every level of their organization to help,” continued Ontko.  “We recently added several pieces of Schneider equipment including automated blocking and edging and we are excited to become a fully-digital enabled lab. This decision to continue our partnership with Schneider was based not only on today but tomorrow as well, as their leading innovations help ensure our lab will always be on the forefront of technology and not trying to play catch up.”

With over 3,000 frames in-stock, patients are sure to find the perfect pair of prescription eyeglasses at Stanton Optical, but what makes Stanton Optical stand out from the rest? Their main goal is to have a fully-satisfied customer every time they step through their door, and they all take that job very seriously.

Daniel Stanton said it best. “We want our customers to  know that the minute they walk through our door, we treat them like a special guest. As such, you are always treated with the utmost honesty and respect. From your eye exam and frame selection to the moment you walk out with your new prescription glasses, we guarantee that you will be satisfied with your experience with us. Our service to you is not driven by mere profit, but rather by the desire to provide the customer with exactly what they are looking for.”

With Stanton Optical locations growing rapidly throughout the US and with stores open 6-7 days a week, Stanton Optical knew it was critical to ensure the lab could keep up.  The latest investments in people and technology should help ensure that Stanton Optical is poised to continue this upward trajectory while ensuring that their patients get the best in eyewear and eyecare.
