Affordable Eyewear :: Welcome to Alabama's Source for Eyewear.

About Us

From our humble beginning in downtown Montgomery, AL back in 1987 we saw Montgomery for what it could be. Long before the RSA Tower and all the downtown development we knew the potential of our great city. With the surge in safety glasses business from all the new manufacturing jobs here in the Capital City, and central Alabama, Affordable Eyewear has added new jobs to the community. With all the new suppliers along with the soon to be Number 1 automobile maker in the world, “the sky is the limit for opportunity here in Central Alabama.”

If you have never used Affordable Eyewear you probably have paid too much for eyewear.

See our Two Pair Everyday Special!
Look at our frames and lens prices. Everything we sell along with our service is designed with you, the customer, in mind. We guarantee the Best Quality and Best Price, on everything we sell. Most of our customers purchase two pairs of glasses when they buy their new eyewear. So bring your eyeglass correction to Affordable Eyewear!.

The Most Variety

Affordable Eyewear displays more frames than any other optical outlet in Central Alabama.

Our Service

When you come into Affordable Eyewear the Opticians and  will guide you through acquiring the highest quality eyewear you have ever purchased. No eyeglasses leave store without first being custom-fitted to your face. We are always here for adjustments and repairs when needed. Most of these services are free to our customers.

Insurance and Payment Info

We accept any and all  vision plans
There is a federal law protecting your right to compare prices and shop for the best possible price and service. See the Eye Glass 2 [] case studies. The actual rule. Will your plan violate this federal law? Does your vision plan allow you to shop for the best price? Does it tell you to purchase your new eyewear from a selected provider thus giving you no choice? We encourage you to check into this.

We Don't Accept
This plan probably violates Eyeglass 2, plus they offer very little choice in eyewear.

Affordable Eyewear accepts any vision plan or vision insurance. In some cases with our prices you may not need to pay anything for your  glasses.  We will honor all coupons with some restrictions. This means if the employee or dependent has a vision plan he or she can purchase anything they wish and Affordable will accept the assignment of benefits and the  member pays the difference between the vision plan and final cost including sales tax.
