I just found Specs at their new place (they've moved from Ninth St) and received the usual wonderful attention. The selection is excellent and I really appreciated the individual attention and time I was given. The staff know what they are

I've patronized the Southpoint & Ninth Street shops in Durham for 10 years. I love a place that has both the most terrific frames and a well-trained staff willing to help us. Originally, my young daughter accompanied me, played with

I have been wearing glasses since I can remember and my recent experience with Specs was, without question, the best in customer service, selection, and pricing. Christian is magnanimous - I am a broke college student and she kindly and

Be very careful complaining to the owner of this optical shop. He can be very aggressive and threatening to his customers if they have a problem.

I recently visited the specs location at South Point and was graciously welcomed to the store by a nice young woman who was very patient and knowledgeable. It was the best shopping experience of my life. I felt like I was getting a make over and feel 20 years younger with my new frames picked out by this wonderful young woman. I don??t know if she is the owner of the store or just an employee but I will never go to another optician. She is the best. I receive compliments on my new frames every day!

Specs is the best place to go for glasses, hands down. I would recommend it to everyone I know! I have had nothing but great experiences every time I've visited- the owner is courteous and friendly and really spends time trying to help the customers find the glasses that are best suited for them. If you want to visit a store with a professional yet warm atmosphere that provides the most stylish glasses in the area, you won't find a better place than Specs!

SPECS, I LOVE their assortment of cool glasses!
They make buying glasses fun!

I absolutely love my new glasses from Specs. I have worn glasses since I was little and can't remember ever being so happy with my selection. The staff were unbelievably helpful and made the process enjoyable and easy. I highly recommend you give them a try if you want to be thrilled with your next eyeglass purchase.

I have been getting my glasses from Specs for over 10 years and I will only go see the owner to help me pick them out. He is the best optician in town. He can pick out what looks good on my face because when I try on new frames I can't see what I look like without my glasses on!!! I trust him to select the frames for me. I am very pleased and will never go anywhere else. I recommend Specs to everyone.

Do not purchase from Specs! A purchase from a store should be respected if they are not proper, or induce pain after wearing. A pair of sunglasses was purchased recently. A day later, the glasses caused a severe migraine. The store was contacted and a refund requested. Managers would not offer a refund and were unwilling to cooperate. The owner is extremely belligerent, discourteous, and does not deserve your patronage. Find another local optician who will treat you accordingly and will work with you to solve any problems with your purchase. Customers deserve excellent service and you will not find it at this location. This goes for the location at Southpoint Mall, and the one on 9th Street in Durham North Carolina as they are owned by the same creature. Immediately pursuant to the phone call, a report was filed with the Chamber of Commerce, the NC Business Bureau, and the Attorney General's Office.

Seek your eyewear professionals elsewhere. A review of ONE STAR was required for the posting of this review.

Be careful of your attitude as the owner is rather prickly. I suggest reading the review of the store listed at yahoo local to be forewarned of what can happen. I had the exact same experience as marty.roupe. Had left my prescription in my office but wanted to get started on finding frames since I knew it might take a few trips to decide since my opthamalogist prescribed getting two sets of glasses, readers as well as distance. Had wanted some time to digest all the wonderful choices in the store as I was overwhelmed by the selection. Owner found my pleas to just look for a minute somehow rude and took it quite personally. Even refused to sell me the readers I really wanted to buy. On yahoo local the owner responded by describing the customer as having an offensive attitude, so I guess he thought the same of me as I too was asked to leave and never come back. As a professor at Duke all my colleagues recommended the store, but from now own, I'll tell folks to try their luck farther afield...

The best part of getting my glasses at Specs is how the knowledgeable staff helped me in the selection of a complimentary frame that takes my Rx into account and fits properly on my face. I've been wearing eyeglasses for 25 years and I've dreaded gettting glasses because its always been a negative experience with the help at the doctors office. Now I wear my glasses more than I wear my contact lenses, and I am constantly being complimented on how nice I look when I wear my glasses. Its been a real pleasure, and the folks at Specs are fantastic. I highly recommened them!

Pros: Great Selection, knowledgeable-professional help, attractive and comfortable atmosphere

Cons: Southpoint does not examine eyes, have to bring doctors prescription, or duplicate eyeglasses
