Designer, Couture Frames Well Worth the Price – This is the second year that we've purchased glasses from C Distinctive Eyewear. We were referred to this location for exclusive eye wear by one of the major eye wear locations in Winston-Salem. Those chains carry decent frames, but they are not couture frames. The quality of the frames is fantastic and the staff is always personable and provide impeccable service. If you want OK glasses that you may see on others then go to a chain eye wear location, but if you want distinctive eye wear that really speak to your personality, we wouldn't go anywhere other than C Distinctive. It's simply the difference between Nine West and Christian Louboutin. We've never been disappointed.
In response to lexy1650 – Dear Lexy1650,
I'm so glad you were impressed with how nice and helpful our staff was. We strive for only the best in customer service! We also strive for only the best in eyewear from around the world. We search diligently for companies who design and manufacturer their own eyewear, rather than having their name stamped on factory produced frames. This allows us to offer each customer the highest quality, unique, and exclusive eyewear available.
I'm terribly sorry the frame you chose did not show you enough value to warrant the cost. I would encourage you to stop back in some time and give us another chance. While we certainly have frames that cost $500 (and more), our frame prices start at only $120 and our average frame price is about $300.
Whenever it's time for you to find your next pair of spectacles we would love to see you. I'm sure we can find a pair of unique and amazing eyewear that will be perfect for you and fit into your budget.
Feel free to call me personally if you have any questions or comments - Calvin @ Ceyewear 336-722-5346.
Everyone was very nice..but... – I was impressed by how nice and helpful the staff was. I don't appreciate, however, being charged almost $500 for a pair of frames. The frames were small plastic frames, not worth $500. I left with my prescription and found a much nicer set for $200.
Simply the best! – C eyewear is simply best! I can say so because I have been a customer for years. I go to C eyewear for all of my needs...examination and eyeglasses. The doctor is great, the eyewear is fabulous, and you can't find a friendlier, helpful, and more fun staff. I have had several pairs of glasses from C eyewear and they have lasted forever...the frames they carry are sturdy and great looking. They even help you with selecting the perfect frame shape and color for your face shape. Hey, go to C eyewear...really...seriously...they are the best!
The devil is in the details – The selection of glasses, is at best average. Nothing I haven't seen in Lens Crafters or SAMS Club, COSTCO. The brands may differ but I'm talking about STYLE. Prices are elevated since this is trying to be a boutique store. Which in Winston Salem, if you are not a big box store, you are a boutique, I guess.
The best thing about this place?
A. A few oddly HOT girls working there.
B. Customer Service.
Best Place for ALL your eye needs! – Great place...they are so welcoming and comfortable in there..Excellent
Customer service lives! – I stopped in to have a new pair of glasses adjusted because the place I bought them from couldn't get it right. The girl who helped me at CEyewear was so helpful. They fit great now. And she also fixed some defect in the arm that made the screw not tighten. Now they are nice and tight. She showed me some of their glasses and invited me to come back the next time I need to buy glasses. She did not make me feel pressured or obligated. What a great place. I will buying glasses from them next time and maybe even getting my exam there as well. Wonderful!
Won't go back – I have a nice set of Mikli frames (rimless on the bottom) that were only a couple of years old and wanted to have my new prescription put into them. I felt more comfortable with this store over the others in the area since they sell glasses in this price range, assuming they would have a higher level of standards.
When I first got my glasses, I quickly realized that the lens guy cut an abnormally deep groove in the lenses - giving me a nice white border around what should be pretty nondescript glasses. I took them back and the people were nice enough and offered to have them replaced.
I just picked them up after the replacement and it's pretty much the exact same thing - he obviously tried to buff some of the border out, so the white is not "quite" as bright. However, the top of the lenses obviously were not cut correctly and don't sit in the frame well (I can see gaps in the corners).
The girl at the counter knew that there was not much of a difference and offered to send them off to a lab to have them redone for a third time (effectively telling me that they can't do it right) - and rather than risk something worse again - I told her not to worry about it and left.
Billing themselves as a boutique eyeglasses store - I cannot believe that they would let a shotty product like this out of their doors. I will not return and will suggest against it for any of my friends and family.
Now I'm left with a set of $400 frames with lenses that look like they were made at Wal-Mart (no offense intended, they might have done a better job!). My only consolation is that it's near the end of the year, so I can get insurance to cover another set of lenses in a month.
To be fair though:
- The optometrist was very nice and thorough, and I feel like my prescription is spot on
- The staff is friendly
- They have a good selection of glasses
Best glasses store!!! – Outstanding service! Awesome people! Great selection of frames! My wife and I have made several purchases in the last couple of years, and we are very satisfied customers.
What a wonderful place! – I really enjoyed my experience at C. Distinctive Eyewear. I have worn glasses since the second grade, so I have years (more than I would like to count) of visiting the eye doctor. C. Distinctive Eyewear is the first place that I did not feel rushed with the staff or the doctor. They were open to my questions and offered me a number of options to try out a new contact lens perscription. I live out of town most of the time and they were nice enough to have a sample pair of contacts mailed to me. It does not get any better than that! They have stylish eyewear and a stylish staff! I was excited to see that most of the staff wore glasses too! I have been recommending them to everyone. I can not wait to go back!
