Eye Glasses and Honesty

I needed new eye glasses and used Optica Gavia. They are located on the SW corner of AV. 30 and Calle 34. I chose them because I see they have been in business forever at that location.

I chose some frames and received the free eye exam. The fee was 3000 pesos for 2 sets of glasses plus new lenses for an old set of frames. I paid the full amount when I placed the order.

They offered 2 day service and lived up to it. When I went in to pick up the glasses, they asked for my receipt. Not only did they have my glasses, they returned 500 pesos that I had overpaid them which I did not know I did.

Not only did I get new glasses, I met some good honest people too.

Nice to hear another GOOD thing, great place to keep in mind. I always bring my eye script with me in case.

Thanks for posting this info. A visiting friend has broke her glasses. We went to this spot today, based on your review, and they were able to place her lenses in frames they had in stock. In 20 minutes and 850 pesos we were out of there!
