Sam grinds his own glass and is a perfectionist. There is a huge selection of lightweight frames, including Silhouette. Sam and Anna are friendly and welcoming. The service is outstanding and the quality of the eyeglasses can't be beat.

I found Sam and Anna because they accept the UFT optical voucher for nycdoe teachers. Not many places take the voucher, so I was thrilled to know Sam and Anna do. They have a great selection of both eyeglasses and sunglasses. The best part of the experience was meeting both Sam and Anna. They are kind and patient and skilled at what they do. I felt really comfortable and that's a rarity in NYC where sometimes you are just a number. I highly recommend this shop for both the selection of glasses and excellent customer service.

I found Sam & Anna online through searches for locally owned and operated (not huge chain-store) optical stores. Sam helped me personally and the service he provided was incredibly patient and thoughtful. There is a huge selection of frames here from very utilitarian everyday-wear to unusual-looking high-end european items. I thought the prices were more than fair and I definitely recommend this store to anyone who needs a prescription filled or some special shades.

For at least 10 years I've bought eyeglasses from Sam and Anna Optics, where the highly professional service is friendly and attentive. Anna is always helpful and patient with my sometimes lengthy process of selecting new frames.

Shopping at this independent, family-run business is a refreshing change from buying eyeglasses at a chain-store where salespeople seem eager to get to the next customer, and don't recognize you, just your credit card.

All work is done on the premises. Prescriptions are always perfectly filled and scrupulous care is given to my needs as a person with age-related macular degeneration. Any repairs of eyeglasses bought at Sam and Anna Optics are made promptly, cheerfully and free.

In 60 years of wearing eyeglasses, it's only since shopping at Sam and Anna Optics that people have said, "I really like those glasses, where did you get them?" I'm glad to tell them.

Have been going to Sam and Anna's for years--they have a huge selection of the latest frames (many of which I don't see elsewhere), great taste in frames, and the patience to help you select the best pair for your face. Very satisfied with my most recent pair of glasses--Sam guided me to a pretty Lafont frame that is ideal for my prescription; the frame looks like it's edged with lace filigree, plus it's light, comfortable, easy to wear. Expect compliments!

My favorite all-time glasses are from Sam & Anna Optics because I don't feel as if I'm wearing glasses. The frames are very light and the progressive lenses have been made so I see near, far, and middle distances perfectly. I get compliments all the time about my glasses but I'm happiest about the way I see when I wear them. They have an amazing selection of frames and will work with you closely and for long as it takes to find the right pair and fit. I would give Sam and Anna's six stars if possible!

Pros: best fit, looks great, terrific service

Meet Sam. He takes order, check measurement, grind lenses and fit (perfectly). If this is not a full service, I don't know what is. He is by far the best technician I''ve ever met. Three weeks ago I bought a pair glasses at warehouse place thinking saving some money. Boy did I disappointed! My doctor said prescription was filled right, but I've had this unthinkable discomfort. I took them to Sam, and he made a new set for me. Wasted money plus a new order became the most expensive glasses I've own. I learned again. 'You get what you paid for' is still valid. It's hard to find top professional in any field. As far as glasses concern, I'll leave it to Sam.

I searched all around Manhattan for Silhouette frames, which I wanted, and nobody has a larger selection than this store. Prices are very good, but service in fitting, etc. is even better. I also bought non-Silhouette frames and was very happy. I like to support good neighborhood places, but went outside of my neighborhood to shop here, it was that good for me. If you don't care about your glasses, you can go anywhere. But if you do care about quality and style and good value, you simply can not do better than here.

I have been going to them for the past 5 years. They take the time with me and listen to my requests regarding purchasing a new pair of glasses, the price etc. There is no store like Sam & Anna Optics Inc . I would recommend them to anyone. Even if you once had purchased glasses from them and your glasses need tweaking they would take the time to do so.

Pros: The Best and Personal Service

I visited Dr. Lau there a couple of times (because I had a few follow up questions) and she was very patient and super informative. Her perscription was on the dot. Especially cause other doctors I visited before had trouble figuring out my correct prescription.

The shop itself is family run, so it will have a warm feeling when you go in. And you will feel this in their great service!

Definitely worth going!!! =)

Sam and Anna Optics is the best eye doctor I have ever been to. Not only is Dr. Nguyen extremely thorough in her exams and recommendations, but the business is run with a friendliness and efficiency that are quite rare. Appointments are always honored (no waiting half and hour past the appointed time here), orders are handled quickly, and everyone is always as pleasant and helpful as anyone could ask. I enthusiastically recommend this place to anyone looking for a doctor they can trust and service they are always happy with.

I was referred to Sam and Anna's by my eye doctor, and I couldn't be more pleased. Sam and Anna combine top-notch professionalism and excellent service with warmth and friendliness. The selection of frames is fanatastic (they have many Jean LaFont frames, among many others) and they do the lab work themselves. I had complete confidence that they knew exactly what they were doing. They care about and respect their customers. Great shop!

I got an eye exam and a new pair of glasses here. They were extremely professional and very friendly. It's always hard to pick a new set of glasses, but they were great at helping me narrow down my search and find a pair I'm happy with.

They also had a nice selection of styles for glassware. It's refreshing to go somewhere with such nice service. I really felt like they wanted to earn my business and respect. Much appreciated.

I am an international student from China. Past summer when I traveled NYC, I broke my glasses (actually I dropped glasses and someone stepped on them). I stopped by nearest optical store, asked to replace heavily scretched lenses. I wore very strong prescription glasses, and I coudn't function without my glasses. I also needed glasses urgently because I scheduled fly to Toronto next day. Guess what! The optical shop owner personally drove 2 hours (total 4 hours) to Upstate lens company to pick up my lenses, and they ground my lenses at their shop! It only took a half day to pick up my glasses. I found the business name was Sam & Anna Optics. I appreciate their service. Whenever I clean my glasses, I often thinking about them even though it happened a few months ago. I truly hope they stay in business for long, long time.

My father lives in a nursing home near Sam & Anna Optics. When my father got new glasses RX, I took him to Sam & Anna Optics upon eye doctor's recommendation. Sam & Anna personally took time to select best frames for my father. One for reading and another for distance. Next day they delivered glasses to my father (so fast!!!) so my father didn't have to arrange wheelchair aide to pick up glasses. My father enjoy watching his favorite TV show again. I am thankful for their service.

I found this place when I woke up one morning with pink eye.
I went in and was seen immediately by a young doctor. She was knowledgeble and friendly.
I was given eye drops and the infection cleared up within 2 days!
I was so happy, I went back for a glasses and contact lens prescription. The doctor was so friendly and told me everything about my eyes, and even said my last glasses prescription (which I hated) was too strong! The staff showed me some really funky frames and now I get compliments every time I wear the glasses.
It's a family owned business that takes pride in their work and customer service. I'm sending all my friends there.

I'd definitely recommend them to all my friends.
