FAQs

What are your hours?
Call for hours: 937-294-1010

Where are you located?
We’re located at 2319 Far Hills Ave.
Dayton, OH 45419.

How long will my order take to complete?
…NOT in about an hour. In fact, we pride ourselves on not being even remotely like any eyewear chain. That said, if we have the frame and you have a simple RX, typically, a week to ten days. If we have to order the frame from overseas, which is not uncommon, the time frame varies. We’ll keep you informed as much or as little as you like. EYEWEAR EMERGENCY? Ask about our 24-48 hour Rush Service.

Do you take (fill in the name) insurance?
Sorry… we don’t accept ANY insurance. We WILL provide you with an itemized receipt that you can submit. And, we’ll be more than happy to help you spend your medical flex dollars.

How much do your frames cost?
We’re not cheap (but we are easy!) We deal with the Euro, the Yen and a bunch of other foreign currencies, so we’re at the mercy of “the system.” On the flip side, you definitely get what you pay for… and a lot more. You can be assured you have the most technologically-advanced optics and the coolest frames around. You’ll receive unparalleled service from a professional staff (no one’s on commission) that is committed to our clients and actually like working here.

Can I bring in my prescription?
Of course! Any RX from an
opthalmologist (MD) or optometrist (OD)
is valid for two years from the date issued.

Do you have vintage frames… children’s frames… and perfectly round frames… frames that Angelina Jolie wore in last week’s People magazine?
Yes, yes, yes and yes (although you probably won’t look like Ms. Jolie, but if you do look like her, don’t forget to leave us your cell number.)

Can I get my contacts from you?
Yes, if you are a current contact wearer, we just need your RX. We’ll order the brand and number of boxes you request and have them for you in 1-3 days, again depending on the specific RX. We charge about $5.00 over cost, to cover manufacturer’s handing and shipping costs. If you are a first timer, we will schedule a contact consultation with a licensed optician. There is a minimal fee for the “fitting.”

Do you sell telescopes… binoculars?
We carry most things optical: from telescopes (and accessories – SEE www.scopemonkey.com) to microscopes, monoculars, to binoculars, magnifiers to opera glasses from such names as Swarovski, Explore Scientific, Vixen
and Celestron.

Is there any parking?
…anywhere legal…it’s Hyde Park Square, you know the drill.
