Affordable Family Eyewear began serving Eastern Oregon and Southeastern Washington in 2007 owned and operated by Marcia & Allen Lambert. Over the years, Affordable Family Eyewear has built a reputation for offering eyewear at affordable prices, outstanding customer service, and high-quality eyewear to over 13,000 patients. In 2021, Marcia and Allen wanted to transition into retirement, so Nicholas Page a long-term friend and fellow optician decided to purchase the business. As the transaction was formalized, Nick decided in order to enhance the patient experience he would create a partnership with his wife Barbara, and his friend Steve Cox. The focus has been and will continue to offer the region and patients an outstanding eyewear experience, affordable prices, high-quality eyewear, and in the shortest possible timeframe utilizing our on-site optical lab, therefore offering our patients a one-stop shop meeting their individual optical needs.
