    I'd like to hear recommendations for a great optical shop (or specific
    optician in a shop) in the San Francisco Area. I'm looking for
    someplace that has excellent service and is great at fitting glasses.

    There are only about 20 colleges or universities in the US that offer
    degrees in optometry, and UC Berkeley is one of them (and one of the best).
    You might call them and inquire, but they would probably recommend an
    optometrist with a an optical shop in their office. I found these to be
    among the worst, because they often hire low paid persons in the optical
    shop with the assumption that the optometrist will closely supervise them,
    but they are often too busy to do it properly.. But I am sure there are some
    exceptions. It would interesting to see what they say, anyway.

    One of the best opticians I found was associated with a group practice of
    eye care doctors. That optical shop was large enough to have some skilled
    opticians. It was a separate office right next to a group of optometrists,
    ophthalmologists, and laser eye surgeons who jointly owned the optical shop.
