Gold Circle Optical


About Us

As an owner-operated business, Gold Circle Optical offers an alternative to the big box chain stores with personalized service from someone you know and trust. Whether you are looking for a new everyday pair of glasses or a spicy pair for a night on the town, we want you to have a great experience and find the perfect pair. We are committed to being your source for the newest trends and the latest technology. Our optometrist and opticians work together to determine what types of lenses and eyewear will work best for your visual needs in terms of comfort, function and clarity.

We are members of the Buffalo Executives Association (BEA).

We proudly support locally owned businesses and invite you to do the same.
