Welcome to Clancy Optical & Spex Eyewear!

Clancy Optical Company was first established in 1943 -  the oldest family-owned optical specialists in Knoxville. To coin a phrase, we're not the best because we're the oldest - we're the oldest because we're the best! Steve Clancy is the third generation of his family providing optical services for Knoxville and the surrounding areas.

Over the years, we have become known as the most experienced, service-oriented, and trusted makers of fine eyewear in East Tennessee. We specialize in difficult, as well as routine, prescription glasses utilizing the latest technologies available.

We employ four licensed opticians with over 125 years of combined experience! What this means for our customers is they will see the same friendly, familiar, and experienced  faces year after year. We take great pride in being a trusted part of the Knoxville community.

We have recently relocated our West Knoxville store to Franklin Square (the same shopping center as The Chop House). We'd love for you to stop by and check out our updated look designed by Steve's wife, Paula, of Nouveau Classics.
