Visual needs, lifestyles, personal taste and budgets are infinitely variable. We recognize this and stock 3,000-5,000 frames at both locations for you to choose from. Usually, your best choice is to invest in more than one pair of glasses with different lenses based on the purpose of the eyewear. For example, use the thinnest lenses for dress and casual wear, the safest lenses for sport and active wear, and polarized or tinted sunglasses for California's sunny climate.
There are many factors that contribute to the price of a frame. Differences in materials, coloration, craftsmanship, country of origin, quality assurance and design all effect the price. Our experienced staff members are available to assist you with facial shape recommendations and design options to maximize the cosmetic appeal.
Designer wear is a staple in our culture. In the eyeglass field, designer frames are the sturdiest and best crafted frames on the market. Designers often utilize modern materials such as titanium, one of the lightest weight and most durable metals available. They also use flexible polymers and zyles (plastic) which are virtually unbreakable. Our extensive collection of designers includes both American and European designers.
