(1) “Service the way it used to be.” Who knew buying glasses could be so pleasant? Dealing with Pat Vedral at Blue Sky Eyewear is like going back in time – when your business was really appreciated. She always has time and treats me like I’m her only customer. She’s why I always come back to Blue Sky Eyewear.

(2) “I’m still young enough to want to look great in a pair of glasses.” Has anybody every really helped you choose a pair of glasses that look good on you? Until I shopped at Blue Sky Eyewear it was always up to me and I was never completely happy with my choice. Pat Vedral has an eye for what looks good on you. She explains which styles will compliment you – and helps you find them in your price range. I never looked so good in glasses. Even my husband noticed.

(3) “I learned the hard way – chain store glasses aren’t always the best value.” When I got my glasses at one of the chains, it seemed like a great deal. I should have gotten a clue when they wouldn’t accept the coupon I printed off their website. My glasses broke two weeks later. And that was just the first time. What I’ve spent on gas alone has more than made up for any savings. Not to mention the aggravation. Blue Sky Eyewear is a real value. Their prices are reasonable. And the quality and service are excellent. It’s a no brainer!

(4) “Finally, glasses that actually help me do what I enjoy.” Glasses aren’t just glasses anymore. There are glasses designed for almost anything you might do – golfing, fishing, driving. You name it. Pat Vedral at Blue Sky Eyewear helped me select prescription sunglasses that are ideal for what I like to do – fishing in the Gulf. When you think of it, your glasses should be as good as any other equipment you have – your golf clubs, your fishing rods, your car. Thanks to Blue Sky Eyewear, mine really are.
