Spectacle Shop

Charlottesville's preferred opticians since 1987


About Spectacle Shop

Spectacle Shop has been providing outstanding service to the Charlottesville area for the past 34 years. When we opened our doors for business in 1984, we understood then, as we do now, that there are a variety of places where you can go to purchase eyewear. Our commitment to you is to always take the time to help you select the right pair of glasses that suit your appearance and style, and then to adjust them properly so that they not only look good on you, but they also feel good when you wear them. As long as you own them, you can bring them back to us to be adjusted if you ever feel the need. Our customers and reputation mean everything to us!
