The Optical Shop for Kids

Contacting or Visiting the Shop

There are two optical shop locations: one in our Virginia Beach office and the second in our Chesapeake office. The optical shops are open from 9:00-12:30 and 1:30-4:30 Monday-Friday and patients may walk in without an appointment to pick-up glasses until 4:00pm. Please call us at 757-461-0050 extension 4 to schedule an appointment to try on our wide selection of glasses, place orders for glasses, or for any repairs.

You can reach the optical staff directly by emailing Optical@VirginiaPediatricEye.com or by calling (757) 461-0050 and selecting option 4.

Insurance & Vision Plans

We work with a variety of vision plans that cover the cost of glasses for their members.  We accept 

We welcome you to call or email us to find out if we work with your vision plan.

Order Cancellation

Because eyeglass lens orders are highly customized and cannot be canceled once they have been placed with the optical lab, a fee will be assessed in the event of order cancellation of 25% of the original retail cost of prescription lenses.


Frames have a one year warranty, from the time the glasses are available for pickup, that allows one free frame replacement for manufacturer defects such as  temple breakage. The frame warranty does not cover accidental damage like a dog chewing the glasses or children dropping or stepping on glasses. If a second frame is replaced, the cost is 50% of the current selling price. If three or more frames are replaced, the full cost of the frame is charged. 

Our lens warranty is a one year scratch warranty along with one 6-month doctor’s prescription change warranty. The lens warranty begins on the date that the glasses are received at Virginia Pediatric Eye Center. If a second lens replacement or second doctor’s prescription change is required, the full cost of the lens is charged. 

The frame and lens warranties do not cover loss or theft of the glasses. All material and pieces must be returned at time of pick-up of the replacement glasses. If your child breaks their glasses, please do not discard any pieces or attempt to super glue them back together. Please bring in any breakage to our optical shop for possible repair.
