Fortier’s Opticians, a Local, Family-run Business Serving Our Community Since 1946
Our goal is to maintain the highest level of products and services for our community. We strive to ensure our customers satisfaction in everything we do. We want you to be a lifelong customer and work hard to be sure you enjoy the process of selecting and receiving quality eyewear as much as we enjoy helping you.
Quality, hand-crafted eyewear made to last
We carry a large selection of contemporary and traditional frames complimented by a state-of-the-art lab right on the premises. Owner and optician Frank Belluardo tests every pair of glasses before they leave his shop to be sure the prescription is accurate, the lenses are mounted and aligned to the eye correctly, and every part is tight and secure. Frank lives to hear his customers say “this is the best pair of glasses I’ve ever had!”
Lenses are cut accurately and finished quickly in our on-site lab
Unique to Santa Cruz, Fortier’s is able to ensure the highest quality lenses — both in accuracy of prescription and fit within the frames — in the shortest turnaround time: same day to 48 hours.* This is made possible by Frank’s 30 years of opticianry experience and on-site lab right inside Fortier’s downtown location.
Large selection of popular frames and sunglasses
We stock frames to meet every taste and budget. Frank and Kathy pride themselves on helping customers find just the right eyewear and even offer a custom option from one manufacturer where colors and eye shape can be individually selected to obtain an entirely unique pair of glasses. Look for the list of frames we carry and new frame styles on the product page.
Always friendly customer service to surpass your expectations
We are dedicated to creating customers for life! We consider every interaction to be an opportunity for us to win the trust of our customers. We feel so strongly about this that we personally guarantee our products and services to keep you coming back and recommending us to your friends. Just ask how we can better serve you.
