“Really good selection of frames and reasonable rates. Our family is getting glasses from this place from last 4 years and the service has been exceptional. Warranty on all frames for 2 years is great – they have replaced my old broken frame without even asking any questions free of charge.”
-Shashank W., Bothell
“I have been coming to Comfort Vision for over a year and never looking back! Their customer service is excellent. When I went there to pick out new frames I tried on everything in sight and eventually described what I was looking for and ended up choosing the pair the staff member recommended.”

-Randi S., Bothell
“After hearing nothing but good things about Comfort Vision from my mother and sister, I went for myself and was very happy. They have great customer service, are open on weekends, and walk ins are welcome. They said glasses were going to take 5-7 business days, and only took 4 business days! Everyone is friendly and seams to genuinely enjoy working there.”
