  • A little hard to find but worth the effort!  I was always told my prescription was difficult and it would take a week to get my glasses.  Went to Salem Optical Outlet and I got my glasses the same day!  Thanks!

  • My son needed glasses and no one had much to choose from. Went to Salem Optical Outlet and was blown away by there children's frame selection. Highly recommend!

  • Great selection.  Great price.  Great service.  The optician took the time to ensure I had the best lenses for my lifestyle.

  • I needed glasses quick and I was on a budget.  I went to a couple "Big Box" stores but that "sale" was only on a few frames and none of the looked good.  I went to Salem Outlet and  was able to find the perfect glasses and had them in less than an hour.  Thank you guys!
