Why Shop with Us

Classic Optical is a professional, locally-owned optometric office and eyeglass & contact lens dispensary conveniently located in the heart of CollegeTown at 106 Dryden Rd., Ithaca, NY (just off the Cornell University campus).

We offer:

  • fair prices
  • high quality name brand products
  • unbeatable professional service
  • fast turn around time on orders

Classic Optical specializes in contemporary, as well as modern cutting edge styles in frame selections, featuring some of the hottest collections available. Our frame selection is often mentioned as the best in Ithaca, rivaled only by the finest stores in major metro areas. We keep only the most current and highest quality products in stock at all time so we can provide the best service possible to all of our customers.

We also sell contact lenses at or below the major on-line retailers with next day service in most case for no extra charge at all.

We cut all of our lenses here in the store so you don’t have to be without your glasses if you are using your own frame. Chuck Cooley, our co-owner/optician, has been making glasses for more than 20 years and does the work himself so you can be ensured of quality, fit, and finish of your new custom eyewear. We have one of the fastest turnaround times in town, with most new orders available to pick up the next day. We use top brand lenses and have them overnight delivered from the best companies in the optical industry such as Pentax/Seiko, Varilux, Hoya, and Silor just to name a few. This ensures you will get every bit of the performance and value that you expect from your new glasses for years to come.
