Our Professionals

Julie Haloua, O.D. – Dr. Haloua graduated summa cum laude from The Ohio State University School of Optometry and is certified by the American Board of Optometry. Dr. Haloua interned with a private practice in Toledo, Ohio before moving to State College to establish her own practice at Spectacles in September 2004. Since that time, Dr. Haloua has quickly established herself as one of the most caring, skilled optometric professionals in the Centre Region.

Joseph Haloua, Optician – Joseph is certified by the American Board of Opticianry and honed his skills by serving a two-year optician apprenticeship in the greater Columbus, Ohio area. Joseph utilizes an “old school” approach that guarantees your glasses don’t just look great, but that they feel great and fit great too.

Insurance/Payment Methods

Payment in full is expected upon receipt of services and/or delivery of products. Spectacles F.Y.Eye accepts cash, checks and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover) as forms of payment.

Spectacles F.Y.Eye is an in-network provider of all services within the VSP Network and an in-network provider of eye examinations within the National Vision Administrators (NVA) Network. We are an out-of-network provider for all other vision insurance carriers (i.e., Davis Vision, Spectera, etc.).

​​​​​​​Being an out-of-network provider does NOT mean that your provider won’t reimburse all or part of the cost of your exam, lenses and/or frames should you choose Spectacles; however, it does mean that you will need to submit a claim in order to be reimbursed by your provider. Of course, we’re happy to help you navigate that process – simply download a reimbursement claim form from your provider’s website, bring it with you to your appointment, and we’ll do the rest of the work for you!

If you’re a Penn State employee or graduate student seeking reimbursement, we already have all of the necessary forms – the only thing we need to complete them is your member ID, which can be found on the blue and white Davis Vision insurance card (employees) or on the white and green NVA insurance card (graduate students). Graduate students should keep in mind that Spectacles only needs this information to process claims for frames and lenses – we are already an NVA in-network provider for eye examinations.

We realize that trying to understand all of the insurance information can be overwhelming at times. In order to receive the most accurate reimbursement information based on your plan, we recommend contacting your insurance’s member services department. However, please don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have additional questions!


Spectacles F.Y.Eye is conveniently located at the corner of College Avenue and Fraser Street (138 West College Avenue) – right in the heart of downtown State College and directly across from the beautiful Penn State University Park campus. Feel free to stop by during our regular office hours to schedule an appointment or browse our distinct selection of sunglasses and prescription eyewear frames.
