I wish I had found Mickey Stasey long ago! I finally have glasses that work perfectly for me thanks to Mickey. He makes you feel like you are special and spends as much time as needed with you, which makes you come away very satisfied. Not only does he know what he is doing but he is so personable and friendly! Don't even think about going anywhere else!

I am 50 years old and have worn glasses for 42 years. I'm extremely perfectionistic to a fault. I have worn glasses from the highest end to the lower end, experiencing both ends of the spectrum with lenses and optical stores. So, I have some credibility with this review.
My recent experience with Mickey Stasey was absolutely outstanding. I took a chance after reading the reviews on City Search and speaking with him on the phone.
I was extremely pleased with both the service and QUALITY of my new glasses. My vision is problematic. Mickey was able to create a pair of lenses that are absolutely the best. This is the clearest, best vision I have ever had given my prescription. Also, I love the frame selection he has in the store and he was very helpful and patient in assisting me with the frames.
Mickey is a perfectionist and he goes out of his way to make sure the measurements are precise and exact. He is a rare Optician these days, with experience, expertise and having a deep understanding of how to get it right! You won't find a more experienced Optician in Texas. I only hope and beg that he stays in business a long time because his expertise is not easily replaceable.

He walk over to counter pick up the glasses i had pictured in my mind and said try theses on see what you think. I loved them!!!! This is the place you want to go for eye wear trust me. Mickey knows what he is doing and you will never need to look for a Opticians again!! no pun intended:)

My daughter needed glasses in a hurry and Mickey opened up his store over the holidays to help us out. He kept in close contact while the lenses were ordered and worked hard to get the fit just right. He is a perfectionist and this is what you want in an optician. She loves her new ""stylin'"" glasses and can see much better too! The next time I need to update my glasses, this is the only place I'll go!

I'd gone years with ill-fitting glasses, including many new ones, thinking my nose wasn't large enough to keep eyeglasses straight, before visiting South Austin Optical. And my glasses weren't cheap.
After a doctors' office suggestion, my wife and I went in. My wife was shown the best-looking glasses she's had. The fit was both technical and experience-based intuitive, quick, exacting and superior. Plus, while awaiting her new glasses, her old ones were refitted to be better than another optician, where she'd purchased the glasses, had done.
My experience was the same. Great new glasses, better coating, better vision, better fit. And while waiting a week for the new ones, my old ill-fitting glasses were quickly made to fit better than ever.
South Austin Optical and Mickie Seasie, what a find!

Let me go on record here: This is the best optical shop in the world! I feel I am qualified to say that as I have lived in Europe and the US.
Mickey is the best..I will never buy a pair of eye glasses from anyone else.
I live in Hawaii and was having a terrible time getting someone to get my lenses made correctly. I went to several different places all with the same results.. a slanted world, I can adjust to a new scrip but I can't adjust to my world being slanted. Every single time I returned the glasses and everytime I was told you just need time to adjust.. Really!
It had been about 17 years since Mickey had made me a pair of glasses. I stopped by SAO when I was passing though on a visit home from Germany and had him make me some glasses. So after not being able to find anyone on the island that could get my new scrip right I said hmm maybe I should give Mickey a call. So the next day I did just that. I explained my situation and he said send me your scrip I'll pick out some frames for you and make you the best pair of glasses you have ever had. He was right.. I LOVE my frames perfect color, sassy with a little bling just like me.. and of course the best part I no longer have to live in a world that is slanted!
He is an expert at what he does. He is not only friendly, personalbe, and knowledgable...but he'll work with you no matter how annoying you can be. Believe me I can be annoying just ask any of the 3 shops I visited here in Hawaii!
Thank you so much Mickey for taking the time to make me the perfect pair of glasses w/o me ever having to step foot in your beautiful store. I appreciate all you were able to do for me over the phone.. You are truly one of a kind.. I am positive no other optician would have even attempted to make me a pair of glasses over the phone!

I can't say enough great things about South Austin Optical.
The service is fantastic, Mickey is the cream of the crop. He picked my glasses for me because I couldn't pick from his huge selection. I got the mercedes of glasses, the works. I didn't realize what I wasn't seeing until I put them on.
I did not have any problems from the moment I put them own. If you want a true professional to get your glasses right the first time, Mickey Stasey is your man. I will never go anywhere else for my glasses from now on. I am one satisfied customer. Thanks Mickey!!!!

I just picked up my fourth pair of glasses from S. Austin Optical. If you are as picky as I am this is the only place to go. Quality material and expert service. If you've ever have problems with the chain optical stores as I have, run don't walk to see Mickey

South Austin Optical is the best because of the service, professionalism, and knowing what the patient wants
and needs in quality eye care. Mickey is always there to help even if the glasses need to be tweeked or a lens
needs to be changed. The service is always done in a
timley manner. Try to get this service in a big box store.
Mickey knows what he's doing, no question. I have been to 3 different optical businesses over the years (my bad) and this guy has got 'em beat hands down!! Mickey is a pro, he's courteous, has an awesome personality as well as the ""best of quality"" inventory you'll ever find and ALWAYS knows what is best for his customers.
Thanks for being there for me Mickey!

After having my glasses adjusted 4 separate times within the same week by other eyeglass stores in South Austin that only seemed to mutilate them and make them worse, I was referred to South Austin Optical by my ophthalmologist, who raved about Mickey Stasey being the very best for eye-wear in Austin, and he was so right!
With only one foot in the building, Mickey could immediately tell that my glasses needed some major adjustments, and didn't even have to ask me what the problem was--just took them off my head and into the back to fix them. It was amazing! Even though I was hyper-sensitive to the adjustment in light of all of the problems my glasses had incurred from before, Mickey remained charming and patient with my every adjustment request. The entire experience was awesome--my glasses were fixed beautifully (I was absolutely astonished at how well he adjusted them, after they had been so poorly treated at other places), and he genuinely cared about my well-being. He was so personable and warm that my anxiety about being too picky about the adjustments or that I was taking too much time didn't seem to bother him at all.
I would definitely recommend him, for anyone with glasses or contacts, as I plan to return to him to have my lenses re-done in my glasses as well as for contacts in the future. Also, my ophthalmologist described how the lenses Mickey uses in glasses give him the best vision he's ever had, so I can't wait to try them soon!

On the hunt for new glasses and sick of the LensCrafters and EyeMasters of the world, I came across Mickey and the South Austin Optical Shop on a random google search. Not knowing anything more than the address and hours of operation, I stopped in late one afternoon to see what I might find.
What I found was Mickey.
Extremely professional and courteous, Mickey made me feel at home right off the bat. Instead of giving me the cursory ""hello"" and brushing me off (as you find at other places), he took me under his wing and went on a search for the perfect pair of glasses. Not finding the right fit that day, Mickey went out of his way to order frames especially for me--I didn't have to do any of the hard work. Moreover, he was straightforward with me regarding the shape, color and fit that I needed—in other words, he won’t let you walk out of the shop in a pair of glasses that aren’t flattering just to make a buck.
After a few weeks, we finally found the perfect pair. Affordable, comfortable and high quality, I couldn’t have asked for a better pair of glasses or a better shopping experience. I’ve also never received so many compliments about a pair of glasses before!
I’ve already recommended South Austin Optical to my friends. I highly recommend it to you as well—I doubt you will be disappointed.

I just got done ordering a pair of Glasses and set of contacts from Mickey at South Austin Optical Boutique.
Not only is this the best set of both glasses and contacts that I have had in my 10 years of glasses wearing, but the experience was SO quick and painless!
If you are looking to go to a place that provides products with amazing quality (seriously, talk to Mickey about the quality of the lenses he uses), and you don't want to feel like you're just another number walking through a shop; this is where you should go!
After my visit to this place I have decided that I will go no where else for my eye wear needs.
Thanks a million times over Mickey!

I have finally found my eyesight again. And, thanks to the patience and expertise of a true professional, apparently I even look good in the process. I had many self doubts due to a bad 1st experience, and years of struggling through glasses that just weren't right. My fight has ended and I am ecstatic....I can see and, shop without feeling queasy from imperfect lenses. Thank you Mickey for adjusting my glasses just right for Me ,and for helping me select the frames best suited for my face. I now have confidence again. Thanks Mickey!!!!

I just got my second pair of lenses from Mickey. These are even better (new technology) than the last pair. Something about super HD? Bifocals with *no* adjustment time! Woohoo! And, I love my frames... can't beat it! :-)
Oh, the chocolate part? There's a little bowl of 'em by the door. That's probably why I stop by so often ;-)

Recently moved to Austin and needed new glasses. Mickey looked at my old ones and promised he could make a pair that would be more comfortable and not feel like they needed constant adjusting. He did and after wearing the new ones for a month I could not be happier!
I recommend South Austin Optical to everyone.
