Welcome to Clancy Optical & Spex Eyewear!

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

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 eyeglasses utilizing the latest technologies available in lenses, materials, coatings and other lens options. 

We employ four licensed opticians with over 125 years of combined experience! You will see the same friendly, familiar, and experienced  faces year after year. We are here to help you choose a unique style that looks great on you, accommodates your prescription, and go over any lens options that may be beneficial to you.

Additionally, Clancy Optical and Spex Eyewear offer quite a few exclusive brands that can't be found anywhere else in the Knoxville area. We choose our lines for craftsmanship, quality, uniqueness, and how well a company will take care of someone that purchases one of their frames from us.

Simply put, our goal is to provide you with exceptional customer service through your selection of eyeglasses, lenses, lens options and other optical goods.

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 Clancy, of Nouveau Classics.
