Dr. Saras Rustagi and his staff at Upper Montclair Eye Care & Wear are the most courteous, professional and thorough medical group I have ever encountered! I wish all my doctors were this amazing! Store had a wonderful variety of eye wear to select after my exam. I can’t wait to get my frames!
Ridgewood Eyewear is located in historic downtown. We are in the Archabald-Vroom house which was built in 1789. We have modernized but retained much of the old world charm. The frames however are the latest trend that eyewear has to offer. We understand that you want a varied selection and with over 1000 frames to choose from and a knowledgeable and friendly staff we are confident that you will be able to put your best face forward.
At our facility you and your family will receive a comprehensive eye exam from ages 6 years and up. Contact lens fittings and evaluations are available for those times when eyeglasses are not desirable. Sports or formal affairs for instance.
