– The finest in eyeglass lenses –

Our team strives to provide the finest in eyeglass lenses with a specialization in Customized Hi-Def Progressive Lenses. We are proud to announce that we now sell lenses that block 100% of blue light! Since our exposure to high-intensity blue light has only been increasing in recent years, experts are still determining its long-term effects on our eye health. Still, there are steps we can use to understand risk, and there are small steps we can take to reduce our exposure. Learn more about digital eyestrain.

So glad I switched to this office! I had a wonderful first visit. Everyone was so polite and welcoming. I felt immediately comfortable.
Dr. Gousey was wonderful, very personable.
The selection of frames is spectacular. Nikki was so great in helping me choose just the right frames. She knows her stuff, and was really fun to work with (fanny pack and all)! And I certainly appreciated the input of Charissa as well.
I will recommend you to my friends! Thank you! – Tina Chevalier 4/10/2018

Belchertown Eye Care and Sunglass Shop is the best! I’ve had two awesome pairs of glasses from them and wouldn’t go anywhere else! Their customer service is top notch and the quality of their product is excellent. I’m a very happy customer. – Michelle Courtois Moreno 2/20/2018

I wouldn’t go anywhere else! The owner and staff are so knowledgeable, so willing to take time and help, and so remarkably friendly along the way. The owner went out of her way for me when my glasses were lost in a hospital setting, even creating a new pair for me before having any assurance of getting reimbursed by the hospital. Likewise, the staff is always accommodating to my son’s needs when he waits til the last minute to order his contact lenses. I appreciate this team of professionals so much that when I learned my particular vision insurance wasn’t one they participated in, instead of going elsewhere, I cancelled the insurance and opted to stay there! Simply the best!! – Pam Dansereau 4/29/2017

These guys are the best. It took me 3 visits and probably about 6 hours to pick my first pair of glasses. Charissa (sorry if I spelled that wrong) was endlessly patient, honest about how things looked, ordered things she didn’t have just to try them, and never made me feel rushed or like I was taking too long. Which I definitely was. People ask where I got my glasses all the time! I will not go any place else. Oh, and did I mention her prices are excellent? She just works with you until you are entirely happy. – Jen from Shutesbury, Massachusetts

Superb service
I could not recommend more highly. I was looking for the best progressive lenses, with the widest field of view available. (I’d found the narrow width of the focal area on previous progressives quite irritating.) I did quite a bit of research on the web and visited at least six local optical shops. Charissa, the owner at Belchertown Eye Care, stood out as unusually knowledgeable and helpful. She conveys a personal and straightforward attention to the functional and aesthetic concerns of the customer. It’s clear that her concern is not marketing a product, but assuring that you get the glasses that will work and feel best for you. She provided me with a superb set of glasses, with lenses custom shaped (she grinds the perimeter herself) to extend the visual field available without head movement. They feel so natural I virtually never take them off. I might also add that I saw in my visits that as the only shop in town, she serves all sorts of clients and is very good with kids. -Tom Harris from Amherst, Massachusetts
