About Soto's Optical Boutique

When Ron Soto was a teenager he’d come and help his Dad in one of his original optical stores.  He’d go to school then to his Dad’s shop and learn the trade by watching and being his Dad’s assistant.  When Ron completed his 4-year apprentice-ship, he became a licensed optician in 1980.  He personally puts the frames and lenses together on every pair of glasses he sells.  He laughs and calls it “old school”, but that’s how personal his business is.  He believes in doing one thing and doing it well.

When you enter Soto’s Optical Boutique you’ll be instantly transported into luxury; the pendant lights handing, artfully placed, the ambience of quiet and cool, and the lovely black lab sleeping away on the floor…sometimes JR will lift up his head ceremoniously to check you out, then go back to sleep.  Kim and Ron’s assistant is at the counter, a laid-back, smiling man named Mike.  Most of the time Ron and Kim are at the store, working, and customers will come in wanting glasses or even something small, like new nose tips or a repair.  Some of Ron’s customers have been coming into his store for 30 years.  In this day and age, that means a lot. In a time when a lot of stores are cutting their quality back, the Soto’s  Optical Boutique remains interested in even making a minor adjustment for someone in need.

The Sotos are just like their store…modern, fashionable, with a definite air of expertise.  They inspire confidence in their products and have leaned toward the latest, finest, and most interesting.  There isn’t a boring pair of frames in the entire store.  If you’ve looked in all the standard places for fashionable frames, you know you have seen everything in five minutes and haven’t found anything you absolutely love.  Come to Soto’s Optical Boutique if you want top quality and great style.

Their hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 10:00 a.m., to 2:00 p.m.  Soto’s Optical Boutique is a family-run business with top-of-the-line frames, glasses and accessories that will be fitted to your vision needs, and where you get individual attention to any optical problem or upscale optical product you want to purchase.
