Lisa did a perfect placement of my progressive RX in my frame. Her price is very reasonable.

I found the perfect glasses. Hillcrest Optical is a great shop with a huge selection of frames. Lisa is so friendly and stayed late when my glasses came in to adjust them to make sure I was happy with them. Very friendly and fast service.
