Our Optical Services

We are, first and foremost, glasses people, and helping each customer find their perfect pair will never stop being exciting for us. We always do right by our customers, from providing a premium level of service to trying to never say “no” to your requests. As an independent optical shop, we’re proud to have the ability to avoid corporate rigamarole and offer you the kind of custom services you won’t find anywhere else. For everything from our Fair Value Plan to our Spec Check, where we’ll make sure even glasses bought elsewhere fit properly, we have you covered.

Custom Lens Lab

We have access to an in-house custom lens lab, so we can provide greater customization and a faster turnaround than our competitors, all without sacrificing quality. We’ll tailor your lenses to what your lifestyle requires, including options like blue light blocking treatments or prism eyewear.

Generations of Optical Experience

We’ve been in the eyewear business a long time — more than 80 years, in fact. Our experience has taught us that the most important work we can do is to take care of our customers, even for some truly out-of-the-ordinary requests. We also have the discerning eyes to curate an expansive collection of eyeglasses from designers you already love and independent manufacturers you’ll fall for soon enough.

Convenient Referrals

We want you to love your look and have the best vision possible, which is why we connect our customers with trusted local eye doctors. Our extensive history in the area means we have the network to put you in touch with an optometrist you can rely on. Get a precise vision prescription and clean bill of health so you can rest easy with clear eyesight and outstanding frames.

Concierge Services

As an independent, family-owned business, we’re free to offer benefits as radical as our Mobile Service, where we bring a selection of our expansive optical shop straight to you. Upon request, a member of our team can visit your home, office, or any other place of your choosing for adjustments, repairs, or a display of the hottest eyewear trends. Let us know what you’d like, and we’ll sort out the details.

In 2018, I took my 90 years old father to a routine eye check up. The Doctor there found a problem with him that required urgent surgery in both eyes to don't go blind. Thanks to her my dad's vision is perfect for his age. Great service! 🌹

Dietz-McLean Optical in San Antonio on Basse Rd... The best Optical experience I ever had. I am from California, visiting my daughter in San Antonio, and have been wearing rimless glasses for a while. No one ever did my rimless round glasses the way I wanted until I met Linda at Dietz-McLean opticals. To me, precise and accurate measurements of my round rimless glasses were of utmost importance and Linda was sharp as a whip who understood my need for precision, accuracy and elegance .She got my rimless glasses done....on time and to the exact measurements on the glasses. .I was so impressed with the quality of their work, I got 3 pairs of rimless glasses done. Linda is an asset to this company to uphold the values of Customer service, profssional atttitude and respect for the customers in listening to their needs , ontime delivery of glasses of exceptional quality and elegance. I would highly recommend Dietz-McLean Opticals for quality glasses - rim or rimless. -Mr Kumar .

I was looking for a particular pair of glasses with no luck. I found this place via Google. I spoke with Linda and she was able to find the glasses for me! Great customer service! I will only buy glasses from here going forward! Thank you, Linda!

Great company going back to my grandfather who was one of the first ophthalmologists in SA (actually the 2nd and they told him he wouldn't make it since there already was 1!). I go to Dietz-McLean for all my glasses needs. Thanks!

The best optical shop bar none. Dietz-McLean goes the extra mile in customer service and producing superb quality eyewear. Linda never gave up on me and after a new prescription my glasses were perfect. I have been a loyal customer for two decades. My prescription is difficult and this is the only optical shop that can fit me.

I've been wearing glasses for close to twenty years and have not had an easier shopping experience for new glasses in that time. Elke was very knowledgeable about my options and I was quickly able to pick a new frame that looks great. Thank you for the great service!
