    I call it an eyeglass(es) store. Here, they are mostly chain stores: Cohen's Optical, Pearle Vision, etc.

    Re: shop sells glasses

    Thanks.
    But is there any combination for the name where we have the word "optic" or something like this in the name?
    I think I have seen something but I don't remember.

    Re: shop sells glasses

    In the UK, the place you go for an eye examination (eye test) and where you can then buy your glasses or contact lenses is an optician's or an ophthamologist's.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
