About Us

For 40 years, Gilbert Eyecare, has served Hampton Roads families with outstanding optical products and services. With its origins as a family-owned business in the Hilltop area of Virginia Beach, Gilbert Eyecare also expanded to downtown Norfolk. Despite it’s growing business presence in Hampton Roads, Gilbert Eyecare has maintained a family tradition of excellence in eyewear and eyecare while maintaining a friendly family-like atmosphere for employees and patients.

Our skilled team members employ their vast experience in eyewear fashion to ensure that your glasses are the perfect complement for your personal image. To help you see the difference at Gilbert Eyecare, you can use the Optical Imaging 3000 visual fashion system, which allows you to see how you look in a variety of frames while you wear your current glasses. No more squinting into a mirror and guessing how you look.
