I was helped out above and beyond what you could ever expect from an optical store. They stayed with me and kept offering suggestion after suggestion until I found the PERFECT pair that fit my face AND that were not too expensive. I'm very pleased with my glasses and will be back for my next Rx. Thank you!

I highly recommend DEVONSHIRE OPTICAL as the only place to get glasses in Manhattan. \nAfter hours of shopping for frames, growing more and more frustrated at the lack of customer service as well as the frame quality offered at the major chains. I turned north on University Place and walked into DEVONSHIRE OPTICAL. \n\nWow, what a difference a little intelligent human interaction can do to our daily life. I was quickly greeted by Tanisha and Betty. \n\n As I looked at their frames a woman walked in with a bag of treats. Her offering was in response to the service she received at DEVONSHIRE OPTICAL. I knew I walked into the right place. Tanisha and Betty help me find and decide the right frame for my budget and help me to choose the perfect frame. \n\nWhat made this shopping experience different from the rest is that it has to do with the fact, that Tanisha and Betty understand and practice solid good customer service. \n\nIt is the only place to go for frames in the island of Manhattan.\n\nLiliana Perez\n\n

I wanted to leave a review on Citysearch given my great customer service experience here. I got a pair of glasses, prescription, with anti-glare, etc. I just love them.\n\nI wasn't pressured into buying (unlike some other places) and the salesperson helping me was patient, kind and professional. I was in and out quickly. \n\nIn the end, I love my glasses; they are so sturdy and I think compliment my face really well. This shop is wonderful.

Having trekked the city over searching for a good places, I arrived at Devonshire Optical a weary man. I had been frustrated at countless boutiques across Manhattan, everywhere I went it seemed liked I was being pressured into buying something that wasn't me. Service went from snooty to downright mean at times. So it was with a heavy heart that I treaded in to Devonshire Optical on a cold January morning.\n\nI was immediately greeted by a friendly employee who introduced himself as Manny. He cheerily told me to make myself at home and check out anything I'd like. He was extremely helpful and never pressured me into anything, but offered great feedback, and for someone like me who isn't exactly the hippest of the hip, that means a lot. \n\nIn the end, because of Manny's great assistance and the fantastic selection of Devonshire Optical, I was able to discover a pair of glasses that were ""me."" It was such a positive experience that you'd be hard pressed to ever find any service or selection that can even come close to Devonshire Optical in Manhattan. They deserve the PERFECT reviews that they've received. Bottom line, save your time, go here first.

This is a wonderful place to shop for glasses. This cozy shop houses an incredible array of the best glasses on the market -- from classics by Oliver Peoples to very current and new and unique styles too. John, Manny and Tanisha are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful -- and not pushy in any way. You never feel like you are being 'sold' to. And, very important, - they will give yo an honest opinion about how a pair of glasses really looks on you. They stand by their glasses, so you can be sure they'll resolve any problems. Totally recommended!

Cheers and deep thanks to Manny and Tanisha, the staff at Devonshire Optical, whose helpful and friendly professionalism, wise counsel and infinite patience make the store unique. Because they don't pressure customers into quick sales, they have many loyal fans. Manny, who helped me through my indecision on two consecutive days, truly enjoys his work: a key to doing good business. \n\nDevonshire stocks a diverse collection, including elegant, fun and colorful frames, many from Europe and not commonly seen. (And since I'm splurging a bit on a more chic pair this time around, I'll make a simultaneous donation to a locally-based health-care organization in Haiti.) Put this store in your contacts list!

Some the coolest frames you can imagine in the friendly atmosphere of a long standing neighborhood shop. \n\nManny is a great representative of the store. He has a natural enthusiasm for the store and its products, and it's a pleasure to deal with him. His no-pressure, patient, and extremely knowledgeable approach made me eager to do business here. \n\nManny went above and beyond expectation in offering me all kinds of great info and spending extra time to make sure I received exactly what I needed. Thanks Manny!

Pros: Great service. Extensive collection of unique frames.

John, who owns Devonshire, shops for his frames throughout Europe. Whenever I buy glasses at Devonshire, I am often one of the first in New York to have them. It's not until one or two years later that the chains such as Lens Crafters & Cohens begin to sell them and the frames begin to show up everywhere and on everyone. That's when I know it's time to purchase new frames. Customers are given expert advice and it's almost like having a personal shopper. If you like good service, expert style advice and enjoy being the first kid on the block to own something, this is the place to go.\n

Devonshire Optical is a breath of fresh air in the city. The people at Devonshire are helpful, patient, and full of good advice. Their eyeglass selection is also one of the best in the city. I'd been to alot of stores where I felt that I was about to be swindled or where the employees were either too busy or too uninterested to care. Skip the others, and go straight here now.

After reading the reviews on Citysearch, I decided to visit Devonshire optical. I'm ashamed to say that I was a little skeptical that there was nary a negative review. But I went, I tried on several frames. Had to get new lenses as well. I was told of all my options but never felt pressured into buying anything. I love my new glasses! Also, you get an NYU student discount.

they have got everything! you name it! colors, materials, designs, customer service!\r\nI am really picky of choosing eyeglasses or sunglasses at that so I have tried many places with no results.\r\none day just walking by ""Devonshire Optical"" after my job I decided to give it a try since I have never been there before. Half an hour later I walked out as happy as never before that I finally found my perfect glasses.\r\ngreat customer service - they answered to all my questions, both the girl and the guy helped me decide which one looked better on me( since I picked out like 30 pairs).\r\nnobody pushed me or rushed me to buy anything and I am greatful for that.\r\nThank you and I will keep coming back.

You'll know as soon as you look in their rather amusing window displays that they have good selection, but when you go inside and actually get helped by a staff member, you will find that they have some really hard to find, unique and beautiful things that you wouldn't have even thought to look at. They carry Lafont eyewear, which I haven't seen in such abundance since I was in Paris. I'm sure I won't ever go to a different place for eyeglasses ever again.

I read the reviews on Citysearch, then went to three glasses places downtown before coming to Devonshire. Now I know what it must have felt like for the Israelites to come into the promised land. Just so you know, I put optical joints in the same category as mattress places: rackets. They can charge ridiculous prices and I feel like I'm being sold snake oil. But at Devonshire, I found smart, helpful, normal people who cared about finding me a couple pair of nice glasses and charging me a fair price. I've never written a review on Citysearch before and generally suffer from a sense of my own ineffectiveness. So the fact that I'm taking the time to recommend Devonshire should be taken very seriously. It's where I'm buying my glasses from now on. The search is over.

I have been extremely near-sighted for many years and so have a lot of experience buying glasses. This year I had to get bifocals--er progressives--and was really dreading this next step, so I put off getting a new pair for as long as possible, I ended up going to Devonshire shortly before leaving the country. They had a great selection at reasonable prices (for NYC) and had my glasses done in time for the trip. Dan was totally wonderful and let gave me lots of advice and encouragement with adjusting to the new prescription. I wish I could give them more stars!!!

I had a pair of non prescription sunglasses that I wanted made into prescription glasses and was told by three other opticians that it could not be done. Dan looked at them, checked the curvature of the frame and said he thought it would be possible. When my glasses were delivered to me they were perfect!!!! Thank you DEVONSHIRE !!!!! You deserve 10 stars !!! TTG

Devonshire is the place to go for high quality and chic eyewear. My opthamologist recommened I get Progressive lenses, corrective lenses that let you see at 3 distances. At Devonshire they fitted me wonderfully. I've never seen or looked better! My friends have gone there too for their eyeglasses and said it was great. This is a great place!

I was impressed with the selection of frames, the knowledge of the sales staff, and the high-quality and personable customer service. The salesperson was patient, extremely easy to talk with, and very helpful in assisting me to purchase two pairs of glasses. When I returned to pick up the frames, a second salesperson fitted the glasses, carefully making sure they were comfortable and well-placed. I highly recommend Devonshire.

I have a friend in the optical business but she works far away, way upstate. I mention that because I've gotten a lot of inside info on materials used for eye wear, designer wear vs. the eyewear designers -- and also those opticians who are talented in helping you pick frames that flatter your face, that are good for your presciption, your coloring...\r\n\r\nDevonshire not only carries all the top eyewear artists like Theo, Anne et Valentin, Booth and Bruce, to name a few, but their service is top notch. This is the kind of service you don't get anymore especially in the city. Since you have to wear glasses, you want them to be nice, right? Well, Devonshire allows you to browse their selection and take the time you need. John even wrote down the frames I liked and I came back a while later to actually order and see if I still ike them. They really know how to match your taste, and of course, the technical side of the prescription and the options for lenses.\r\n\r\nThere is a wonderful feeling here, the shop feeling, with no attitude. I can't recommend them enough.

My experience at Devonshire Optical was a great one! My boyfriend and I both got rimless glasses. Mine were Kawasaki with blue sides, and my boyfriend got Silhouettes that look great. The service there was terrific, and Dan recommended a coating that makes a huge difference in the glasses. I always love walking by and seeing their new and creative window displays.

I found the exact pair of glasses I was looking for at Devonshire. I had compared many on-line and in store options and while I found them at many locations, I chose to buy them at Devonshire because I got a great price and very helpful service. While trying on glasses the staff showed me many options from their extensive collection. And during the purchase they helped me get a great price by reminding me of the NYU discount they offer. Will definitely shop here for my next set of glasses.

both I and my husband got prescription glasses here: coolest selection of frames, without an imposing atmosphere, that I have seen after several disappointments elsewhere. This is important since one does not want to be pressured into such important purchases, of items that sit right on one's face! I especially like their color frames, possibly the largest and most varied selection of non-conservative quality frames that I've seen in NY, yet within an intimate store: closer in all these respects to shops I've used in Europe. Very attentive staff, and good optical results. Highly recommended.

the selection here is unparalleled (they actually carry frames that you will wear), as is the service. unlike other such places, they will take as much time as it takes to find the right frames for your face and give honest assessments of how each looks and without the slightest hint of sales pressure. once the frames/lens are ready, they'll sit with you for as long as it takes until the fit is correct for each time you come back for adjustments, if necessary. i just bought a pair of glasses there a few weeks ago and have subsequently gone back to purchase a new set of sunglasses as well. each time, everything has turned out perfectly. great place, great products, great people.

I have been wearing glasses for my entire life, and Devonshire Optical is the best Optical store I have ever been to. The selection they provide is unparalleled and the customer service is superb. I left with two great new pairs of glasses, and even brought my parents back to get glasses there, too! The small space and private atmosphere make it so easy to browse around and find the frames that perfectly fit your face and personality. And to top it all off, I did not have to wait very long at all before they called me to tell me that my glasses had arrived and were ready to be picked up. All in all, a great shopping experience. Very well worth it!

I have had the same pair of glasses for years and one day they finally broke. I thought they were gone forever and I brought them in to Devonshire Optical and they not only fixed them on the spot, but they also straightened them out for me and didn't even charge me. I decided it was time for a new pair and came back with my prescription the next week. For a small store they had the biggest selection of glasses I had ever seen! Dan was really good about picking out frames that looked good on me. The hardest part was choosing just one. He was really good about explaining the different types of lenses to me and wasn't pushy at all. He even told me not to pay more for the thinnest lens because I wouldn't need it in the frame I chose. My glasses were ready the next day and since then I haven't stopped getting compliments! Definitely a good experience.
