There is Absolutely No Comparison
I absolutely love my new glasses. I didn't think it was possible to find a pair of frames that I would like and feel good in, but Wick proved me wrong. He selected a pair that not only look great but feel comfortable on my face. The digital lenses are the icing on the cake. There is absolutely no comparison between the digital technology and my older, standard lenses. I love the clarity and definition I have now. Gregor did an amazing job with my prescription.
We Are Very Fortunate to Have The Spectacle in Raleigh!
We are very fortunate to have The Spectacle in Raleigh! They stock frames as beautiful, interesting, and high quality as those I saw in boutique frame stores in San Francisco. And the service here is much better than the service I received at those places. Wick and Dave are passionate about frames (“frame geeks”!) and they clearly care very much about putting you in a pair you love. And they are THE BEST at helping you pick out frames that look good on you. Dave almost immediately picked up a frame I never would have known to choose for my face but as soon as I put them on I saw why he picked them. And I liked how he explained WHY they were good for my face. It showed they aren’t just picking up random frames to try on you. He humored me and helped me try on a bunch more frames because I just couldn’t believe he was THAT good. But we kept coming back to this original pair. Yep, he’s that good. And then Wick independently chose the same pair as the most flattering for me! They were absolutely right. I love them and get tons of compliments. These guys are amazing. I won’t go anywhere else for frames now. As someone who researches almost everything I buy and shops endlessly looking for the best, that’s saying a lot. I trust they’ve already done all that work for me. Thank you Dave and Wick! Angela J.
Great Selection and Even Better Service
Great selection and even better service. I did not expect to find such an eclectic mix of frames – many of which I had great interest in. My experience was made, however, by Wick. He has tremendous knowledge, expertise, and taste, and he had me fitted with the BEST frames in a matter of minutes. I highly recommend a trip to the store!
Great Service, Great Selection, and Great Vision
I never had compliments on my eyeglasses until now. Searching for several years all frames looked almost the same, then I visited The Spectacle. Quite a different selection! Gregor helped me select a pair of Lafont frames that are perfect for me. Great service, great selection and great vision!
The Clearest Vision I Have Ever Had (in 50+ years)
I feel like I have walked into a world of unparalleled clarity in grand style with my new glasses from The Spectacle. I am extremely near sighted and these lenses give me the clearest vision I have ever had (in 50+ years) while being the lightest and thinnest! The lenses’ digital clarity, the precision of the measurements, and the great contemporary design are unique in my experience of selecting glasses. Wick and Gregor know their eyewear science and style and they assisted me with genuine friendliness and warmth. Spectacle is a great, great place to find your perfect pair of glasses!
My New Eyeglasses are Spectacular
My new eyeglasses are spectacular – the best I have ever owned. I still can’t believe you picked out the frame I ended up purchasing within five minutes of me walking into your shop – you certainly know your eyewear!
The customer service I received was exceptional, and I can’t wait to visit your beautiful store again in pursuit of the perfect sunglasses.
All the best,
Newest Spectacles are a Huge Hit
Well Wick & Gregor, you did it again!!!!! My newest Spectacles are a huge hit. I am styling big time in my Ray-Ban. Getting tons of compliments which I needed to share........ Your talents are endless, your quality unequal. Thank you my friends, I am a happy lady sporting my Ray-Bans.
PS, Had to purchase a Lexus Convertible Sports Car to complete the package..........
Best glasses I have ever owned
I wanted to let everyone know that Wick and Gregor have made me the best pair of glasses I have ever owned. Their attention to detail and customer care is beyond anything I have ever experienced at an eye glass store. 1st class operation, if you choose them you won't go wrong.
Rolls Royce Service for Lifetime
By Rani Urabi Mustafa
My name is Rani Urabi Mustafa. I was born, raised and currently live in Raleigh. Last year, I purchased a pair of Mykita eyeglasses from The Spectacle at North Hills. My experience with the shop since that day is my reason for writing. The service that I've received since my purchase has been nothing less than spectacular. A few weeks after picking up my eyeglasses, My prescription changed. I brought in my glasses and the shop changed out my lenses at zero cost! They actually refused to take one dime; then, last weekend a house guest accidentally sat on my eyeglasses repeatedly. Tough and flexible as they are, they mirrored a pretzel. I immediately drove to the shop thinking-hoping that maybe only half the parts would need to be ordered & replaced. The owner of the shop, Wick, calmly sat me down and went to work completely disassembling my specs & bending & shaping each piece back into their original shapes. Wow in itself!! He then re-adjusted them to fit perfectly. I was stunned; & I mean stunned! Then on top of everything, no matter how hard I wrestled & argued with him, he refused to take a single penny!! The glasses were not cheap to buy, but the investment turned out to be much more than just the specs, rather it seems, lifetime Rolls Royce service. The money I spent at The Spectacle is the best I've ever spent & would stake my name behind the integrity of that shop to anyone!
Takes the pain out of progressives
My husband and I both had a great experience with Wick. I was very nervous about getting progressives. I essentially have one eye that can see far and another that can see near, and I was tired of switching between two glasses, so I decided to take the plunge. I got my progressives today and am already getting used to them. Wick showed me how to look at things when wearing the glasses and it was very easy to catch on. I had heard stories of people who hated their progressive glasses, but I am already a fan of mine. I also look great. He has a fantastic eye for putting the right shape on you, and he understands how far outside your comfort zone you are willing to go. My husband got glasses from Wick last year and he has gone from looking like a stodgy lawyer to a stylish fellow! He also has raved about the quality of the lenses and claims he now has “laser-sharp” vision. Candidly, I had resisted going to Wick for a couple years because I was sensitive to his costs, but those were two years wasted with inferior glasses. Don’t make the same mistake I did: go get your glasses from Wick today!
Never Had Glasses So Worth the Money
By Ann B.
From now on, there is only one place that I will go to for glasses and lenses… The Spectacle. I told Wick that I wanted transitions lenses. He immediately selected a pair of glasses that I initially thought were too “stylish” for me. Gregor told me about the lenses that they used that could help my vision. After some thought, I returned to their shop and tried on most of their glasses. I was amazed that I selected the same pair that Wick initially selected for me.
I have had my glasses for a couple of months now and love them! First, they look great…as regular glasses and as sunglasses. Secondly, I CAN see better! Not only are the lenses allowing better peripheral vision, they have improved my ability to drive at night! After many visits to my ophthalmologist to see if night vision could be corrected and learning that it would just get worse, Gregor proved him wrong!
I have never had a pair of glasses so worth the money.. both to complement my features and for the improved vision! Thank you Wick and Gregor!!!
These Guys Know Their Stuff
By John P.
Like everyone else responding in "The Feedback Booth" I had a most satisfying experience dealing with Gregor and Wick. I traveled to The Spectacle from Chapel Hill in order to check out the Super Focus concept eyeglasses. Though intriguing, this type of lens did not work for me, and I was sure I would end up needing a pair of special lenses just for computer work. Gregor assured me that the new digital progressives were far superior to my ten-year-old progressives, and I would not need a second prescription just for the computer. He was absolutely right!
Then, Gregor brought me into the 21st Century fashion-wise. Since the '60s, I had been wedded to my wire-rims, but Gregor put some contemporary rimless frames on me and my wife loved them -- made me look as young as she is. These guys know their stuff.
I Could Not Be Happier With My New Eyeglasses
By K. House
I went to The Spectacle at North Hills Mall expecting to simply fill a prescription for glasses, not knowing the delightful change that was in store for me. I am farsighted and was used to removing my glasses at night while driving, to avoid the glare from oncoming cars. When Wick Morgan, the owner of The Spectacle, told me I would no longer have to remove my glasses for nighttime driving, I was skeptical, but as it turned out, he was more than right! When the glasses were finished and I first put them on, I was astonished at how crystal clear everything looked. It was like not wearing glasses at all. Suddenly for the first time in years, I was seeing everything the way I used to see it, with no reflections or glare, and with perfect clarity, as if there were absolutely nothing between my eyes and the world. The difference is that these lenses are made digitally, and this advanced technology eliminates aberrations that occur in eyeglass lenses created with traditional eyeglass lens manufacturing tools and processes. I could not be happier with my new eyeglasses!
Love my new glasses!
I recently purchased my first pair of glasses from the Spectacle. Since I've never worn glasses before, I had to get used to the progressive lenses and Wick and Gregor were very helpful with that process. And they are both experts at selecting the frames that look best on you. I get compliments on the frames every day!
The Best Eyewear Shop
By John Briguglio
The Spectacle is by far the best eyewear shop I have experienced in the 40 plus years I have been wearing eyeglasses. Wick seems to know exactly the right style frame to suit any face and personality. His first pick from their wide selection of high fashion frames was perfect. Gregor made sure their new digital lenses were made precisely to suit my preferred field of vision. The digital lenses provide the clearest vision and best bifocal progression I have experienced in the 15 years I have worn bifocals. In effect I have a trifocal lense in the smallest lense I have ever worn, in both size and thickness. The difference is truly amazing, and well worth the additional expense. In short, I cannot say enough about the extraordinary products, customer service, and satisfying experience offered by Wick and Gregor at The Spectacle.
