"This is my 2nd time in a span of 3 years (leveraging benefits) that I have chosen to ask Monica and her team at Zoom Optical for their assistance. Both occasions involved me requiring a new pair of reading glasses. I happened to know exactly what I wanted my first time and Monica's store was the only store in Toronto that could deliver what I was seeking (other stores didn't even carry the brand - Barton Perreira). Monica's enthusiasm to help me get what I wanted in addition to her opinion of my choice was awesome! The process was incredibly smooth and pleasant. I had received countless compliments on this pair which had me feeling joy, especially for not giving up on what I wanted and for Zoom Optical for hooking it up!
My 2nd and very recent (this month) purchase was an event greater experience! I emailed Monica a few options of what I wanted and knew she could order in. I then went to see her so that we could further discuss my options and her opinions. When I arrived she assured me that she could easily order in any of my proposals but to try on a different brand (Gotti - Adil model) that perfectly matched the specifications of what I was looking for (I had shared additional specifications during our phone chat that didn't necessarily reflect in the photos I sent her).
I LOVED THEM! They matched every single specification I was seeking and even had a feature I didn't expect or knew existed (no nose pads)!
I gave her my OK almost immediately and rocked my new face / glasses the following week. I wear my glasses quite regularly and feel so happy putting my new pair on.
Zoom Optical isn't just another store. They truly care for your comfort and happiness and have incredible selections that aren't so mainstream. Easily my go-to spot."

"Love my glasses already. The fact that I can wear them and walk and check my phone at the same time is amazing!"

"I've been going to Zoom Optical for years for my eye exam and glasses. Monica and her team have always taken great care of my needs. Their level of customer service is top-notch and I highly recommend them."
 Karl Mangaliman
"I have been buying glasses for years and it's usually a very straightforward experience. You pick the style, the optician fits the frame to your face and you're pretty much done. But what happens if there are issues with the product? This is where most optical stores could never compare with the incredible customer service at Zoom Optical. I discovered this small optical boutique via a Google search when I went looking for a bespoke frame that almost no one else carried in the Toronto area. The staff was immediately welcoming, helpful and attentive throughout my fitting and purchase of, what are now, my favourite pair of glasses...ever! Unfortunately, there were a few technical issues with the frame and lenses when they arrived. I mostly dealt with Monica at Zoom Optical and she was nothing short of amazing in going above and beyond to make things right. Her perfectionist drive to make things as great as possible was all the more impressive because you could actually feel her passion for making the customer happy. Ultimately everything worked out even better than expected which prompted me to write this review for a company that deserves heavy praise for their efforts. Blown away by the people, the service and the product. Wish I could give it 10 stars.

Thanks Zoom!"

I picked out the coolest frames. They were made even more perfect with high quality progressive lenses and a custom built nose piece for my small bridge.

"I love my new frames and lenses.
My eyes had been bothering me for a long time and I could not figure out why. The long times spent in front of monitors, gadgets and reading have been wearing my eyes out and making them feel fatigued.
Glad I came back to see you for my recent pair of glasses.
I wasn't sure if progressive lenses were for me and the alternatives you showed me are wonderful."

 Ray Garces
"Monica So really knows her stuff. After years of only wearing contact lenses I switched back to glasses. Choosing the right frames and lenses was a difficult decision, but Monica made the process easy. She knew what styles would compliment my face. I would never had picked out the frames she recommended, but they were perfect for me. I wear them everyday and get compliments on them all the time. If you want great, personalized service, Zoom Optical is the place to go!."
 Susan Kronick

"Thank you so much for taking the time to speak to me about progressive contact lenses and convincing me to give it a try!
These lenses have totally changed my life. No longer do I need to wear both contact lenses and reading glasses!
I still am amazed how I can read everything around me so easily.
Monica, whatever hardships or trials you went through to become an Optician and start Zoom Optical, please know that it was absolutely worth it!
You helped me see clearly for the first time in years and this has changed my life!
You and your staff are so wonderful and inviting, I thoroughly enjoy my visits every time!
Thanks again and I will be back soon to buy new sunglasses!"

"If anyone is wondering what good customer service is, go to @ZoomOptical. Monica is the best."
  Jonathan Garcia-Mainou
"Great selection of stylish frames. Service is attentive and friendly offering good advice and recommendations. Glasses are more than simply how the frame looks on you and Monica was thorough in explaining the quality of the lenses. After two days, I couldn't be happier with the fit, style, comfort and clear vision. Delivery was speedy as well."
  Edwin Hew
"Having been a contact lens wearer for many years, I was somewhat hesitant to make the transition to progressive lenses for glasses. About a year ago, I discovered Zoom Optical and met Monica, the owner. After having browsed and spoken to Monica, I knew Zoom was where I would purchase my eyewear when I was ready. Monica had assuaged my fears regarding the transition to progressive lenses.
Monica is such a lovely woman with an infectious smile. She clearly loves dealing with people and she makes shopping for eyewear an enjoyable experience for all her customers. With her expert assistance, I recently selected a pair of Lindberg frames (which are extremely light in craftmanship). They are so chic with an 'understated elegance'. I am also thrilled with the quality of my Nikon lenses.
About two weeks after purchasing my Lindberg eyewear, I returned to Zoom and purchased a pair of Ete sunglasses which are so unique and exquisite in design (feathers are laminated in the frames). They are totally stunning! If you are looking for a fabulous selection of eyewear at reasonable prices and desire great customer service, head to Zoom Optical and meet Monica. You will not be disappointed."

  Donna Dunzl

"Absolutely amazing selection & service!! I keep coming back for another pair every couple of months...and always find something new that I love! Monica is amazing to deal with - she is so bubbly and truly cares about finding something special for me - something that suits me (and my personality), but also makes me look really trendy :) Love this place!"
  Stephanie Kalen
"I just wanted to send a quick 'thank-you' note your way; your professionalism and exceptional service was greatly appreciated. I was very impressed by not only the selection that Zoom Optical had to offer, but also the store set-up itself. Sophia was kind enough to suggest to me numerous pairs to what I was specifically looking for. I came across the perfect pair of glasses -- which I absolutely love! Monica was just awesome in telling me about the specific lens that I had to get, and it was just a pleasure dealing with you both.
I will definitely be recommending your fine establishment to others, and I look forward to future encounters at Zoom Optical."

"This letter is to tell you about Monica.
I first met her while shopping for sunglasses. As a contact lens wearer, I need good protection for my eyes. She recommended a pair, and her advice was good. I have been back since, and always enjoy dealing with this bright, helpful, and personable young woman.
Zoom Optical carries premium lines of glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses at reasonable prices. I have recommended this store to friends without a second thought."

I received excellent service and assistance in picking the right frames and lenses with the various options explained very clearly.

She is extremely friendly and very helpful in the style of frame that is flattering for the wearer. Monica is always very patient and never pushy in her attitude.

I can truly say that Monica is the nicest salesperson you will meet and you will be very happy in your decision to buy from Zoom Optical."

You are very pleasant and your energetic personality was infectious. Monica you are a prime example of 'quality and fantastic customer service'.
Keep on smiling!"

  Ida Lirangi
"I have been wearing glasses & contact lenses since I was 9 so I am in constant need of a very reliable optical and optician who knows exactly what kind of lenses would suit me best. I was so happy when I found this new store Zoom Optical which is close to my workplace and the service I get from Monica is nothing compared to the other opticals I have been to! Monica really listens to my preferences in eyeglasses and provides suggestions to match my style. I also have very dry eyes and she helped me try on different brands of contact lenses to find out which one would be most comfortable for me. I am so happy with the service and with the prescription glasses I purchased from Zoom Optical and I will surely come back here for another pair next year when I'm due for my next eye checkup."

"Monica @ Zoom Optical is amazing to deal with. She knew I wanted something funky and different. She provides her customers with a world wide selection because she gets her frames from all over the world which sets her apart from most other run of the mill eyewear places. You won't find her items at chain stores, that's for sure. It can be hard because she has so many different frames to that can provide different looks. But she can help you find something that will set you apart.
It certainly helps that Monica is super friendly, patient, knowledgeable and her attention to detail is top notch. She wants you to walk out excited about your new frames. I trusted her to help me pick out a frame that was different and made a bold statement.
I get comments all the time about my frames and where I got them. I love them!" "

"My teenage son had just lost his brand new prescription glasses and I was stressed shopping around trying to replace it. That is when I came across Zoom Optical! The wide range and flexibility of service and great customer service was almost too good to be true. I had a lot of restrictions to work around and Monica was able to address all of them. I was able to replace my son’s glasses at a great price in record time, and he actually liked them better than the first pair he lost!!!!!
Thank you Monica!!!!"

"I wear graduated lenses and to find the right ones that I could wear all day and work with, was a challenge, including 3 trips to a leading eyeware company who failed to get it right. But Monica offered me the best options regarding lenses with affordable price points. Zoom also had my glasses ready in a timely fashion.
I highly recommend Zoom Optical for personal and professional eye care."

  John Corcelli

"I have been looking at glasses for at least two months until I dropped in to take a look at Zoom Optical.
After Monica presented a number of frames and frame-less glasses I was very impress with the LINDBERG frames. The glasses were very comfortable, and so was the price compared to other companies. I was very concerned about the weight of the glasses, but I was assured they would be light weight and comfortable to wear.
Thanks to Monica at Zoom Optical."

  Anthony Daniel
"As a happy customer, I would like to drop you a quick note. I picked up my new pair of eyeglasses (Mykita Lite "Mats" with Essilor 1.74 lens) about a week ago. The frame fits the shape of my face very well and the lens are so thin & light. Thanks for your professional advice and service. I do not hesitate recommending your service to my friends and colleagues."

"I had acquired a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses from elsewhere. Unfortunately, I subsequently broke one of the arms of the frame and after returning to the place of purchase I was told that there was nothing they could do to repair the frame. I happened to visit Zoom Optical and was pleasantly surprised when I was told that the frames could in fact be repaired. A couple of days later, I was able to collect my repaired sunglasses that had been professionally repaired at a very reasonable cost. Needless to say, I was most pleased with the courteous, professional and efficient service provided by Zoom Optical."
