Frames You Won’t Find
Anywhere Else!

As independent opticians, we’re able to source and house an unequaled selection of exceptional eyeglasses, many of which you’d never find at big box stores or less-specialized optical shops. Of course, we also recognize that you may not know your way around our favorite designers as well as we do. That’s why we bring on opticians, who truly love eyewear, to guide you through our collections and help you find eyeglass frames you’ll adore.

We don’t just want you to see better. We want you to look outstanding in glasses that last.

Sunglasses for Every Style

Your eyes need protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays just as much as your skin does, and we have you covered with a large assortment of sunglasses to fit any occasion. We carry a multitude of different styles and builds to help you stay fashionable and protected year-round. And if you want a second opinion, our opticians are happy to help you curate a signature look for fun in the sun.
