Western Carolina Eye Associates Optical Shop provides any and all of your eyewear and eyeglasses needs. We have a large variety of great frame styles, sunglasses and designer frame lines to choose from at affordable prices. We have two Optical Shop locations in Watauga and Ashe County. Whether you are looking to purchase a colorful, trendy frame, prescription sunglasses for your next vacation, or if you just need a free and quick adjustment on your glasses; we are here to help!

Our Doctors use their extensive knowledge and state of the art equipment to determine the best glasses prescription for you and your lifestyle. One of our trained optical technicians will then consult with you about the way you plan to use your eyewear and which options, treatments, and styles will benefit you the most.

Our family-owned business provides each patient with the best quality of care and remarkable products all with hometown service to make you feel comfortable and well taken care of during your visit with us.

No need to make an appointment, drop by anytime during office hours at either of our optical shop locations in Boone or Jefferson.

Don’t resort to unreliable online glasses ordering systems. WCEA has our own Optical Finishing lab located in our Jefferson location that you can fully rely on for your satisfaction. There we perform lens edging, tinting, cutting, sizing, and assembly all in one place! Having our own lab just a few miles away allows us to have an unbeatable turnaround, better quality products, and lower costs for our patients. We stand by our work and will ensure that your glasses offer the best vision and fit possible.
