When my mother visited Bozeman from the UK, she broke her only pair of glasses on the first day. A nervous person by nature this was a big deal for her. Stephanie at Bozeman Optical not only helped by talking kindly to her, she helped her find a frame that could accommodate her original lenses and replaced them on the spot. She also, free of charge, provided 2 pairs of reading glasses. My Mum loves her “Bozeman Glasses” and wears then to this day.
