Accent on Eyewear opened in Menlo Park in 1988.  For more than a quarter of century our goal has remained the same: to provide eyewear products of the finest caliber and to do so with courtesy, care and understanding.  All of which contribute to the exemplary customer service.  Our returning clients value the fact we have maintained the lofty standards which are our benchmark.  New clients comment on how impressed they are by our wide-ranging professionalism and knowledge – both scientific and cosmetic.  And, more often than not, new clients join the ranks of those we have served for years, those who return again and again and steadfastly recommend our services and products to co-workers, family and friends.

The skills and extensive work experience of the entire team is geared toward advising and assuring that every client’s prescribed lenses will be inserted into the ‘the perfect frame’ chosen from our extensive, diverse and exclusive eyewear collections.   When it comes to customer service – be it advice on the care and handling of eyewear, suggestions, maintenance, dealing with repairs or guarantees – we do our utmost to uphold our original goal: to provide eyewear products of the finest caliber, and to do so with courtesy care and understanding.  The positive feedback we receive from our clients confirms that is precisely what we’ve been doing all along and that strengthens our resolve to match and surpass our goal.

“For the past years, I’ve never gone anywhere else to have my eye prescriptions filled. I can’t imagine trusting anyone but the wonderful team at Accent on Eyewear. Now that I’m retired, I have more time to play golf and I swear my game has exponentially improved since I got fitted for my snazzy- wrap-style polarized sunglasses. Thank you AOE!”
