About Carey Optical

Your Vision is Our Focus

Carey_Optical-21 Adjusted.jpg

Carey Optical was founded in 2006 by Paul and Lorie Carey. As Registered Opticians, Paul and Lorie understand the importance of excellence in standards. This includes everything from providing 100% customer satisfaction, to selling the best-quality eyewear available. Customers are like family to Paul and Lorie. This is why when they decided to step down from ownership of the practice, they took the time and effort to find the right candidate to take over.

In 2021, Paul and Lorie Carey selected the perfect person who will continue their legacy that they have worked so hard to build. They passed the torch to the very knowledgeable and caring optometrist Dr. Sandra Chiu, who continues to serve the community with the same level of care that customers know and appreciate.

At Carey Optical, “Your Vision is Our Focus” has been our motto since day one. We provide great eyewear selection and outstanding services to each and every customer. We love working with you to select the lenses and frames best suited to both your prescription and your individual needs. To properly fit glasses, we insist that all fittings must be done in person by our Optometrist or Registered Optician. We will take the time to do it properly and thoroughly to ensure your satisfaction.

We believe in carrying only quality, well-constructed products in a wide price range. If you have difficulty with your glasses or are dissatisfied for any reason, we have a 90-day satisfaction guarantee. During that time, if necessary, we will make changes to ensure your complete satisfaction. We stand behind what you purchase.

Carey Optical will always be the people that care!
