Goleta Location

If you’re from Goleta, or even Santa Barbara proper for that matter, it’s extremely likely that you or someone you know has purchased eyewear from Goleta Valley Optical. It might be a friend, mother, or even grandfather! For almost three generations, GVO has been supporting our community. The first Goleta Valley Optical (now known affectionately as GV Optical or GVO) was established in 1970. Since then the location has changed and the eyeglass inventory has exploded to over 750 frames! Still located in Goleta, only now at the corner of Turnpike and Hollister, GV Optical is a one stop shop for your eyewear and eyecare needs. GVO is equipped with a state of the art eyeglass surfacing lab that has the capacity to generate prescription eyeglass lenses in a little over an hour. The lab also can generate high power eyeglasses with a prescription over -18.00 diopters in strength!

The on-site optical lens inventory is stocked with Transition or Photochromic lenses, blended progressive lenses, and single vision lenses alike. This means that GV Optical can meet your urgent needs and accommodate eyewear emergencies. The optical staff is well trained in repairing, adjusting, and fitting eyewear.

Conveniently located next to Santa Barbara Eyecare’s Goleta Valley location, GV Optical Goleta can make your eyecare experience efficient and easy. Come by for an eye exam, contact lenses, or eyeglass needs. Parking is abundant, as we are located in the Turnpike shopping center near Vons grocery.
