EYEWEAR TREND: THE TWO-TONE Frame

A two-tone frame is just about the perfect pair of glasses for any face shape.  They come in so many different shapes, sizes, and designs that the options are endless.  The stark contrast in the top of the glasses to the bottom balances out both angular and round facial features.

We have seen a lot of two-tone glasses come in from the designers we carry, with the demand to match.  People are loving how these unique glasses have that stand-out appeal.

Fashionista and actor Chloë Sevigny is one of the celebrities that sports this eyeglass style with ease.  Understated or impactful, depending on what she is wearing, we can see why these are her signature frames.

Why Pay When You Don’t Have To?

Purchasing new glasses is an important investment not only for your vision health, but for your personal style.  It is recommended to get your eyes tested every 2 years to make sure you have the correct prescription.  We recommend purchasing new glasses every two years to keep current with the latest eyewear trends.  Although most insurance companies cover vision care, the immediate out of pocket expense can sometimes be inconvenient.

Optimized-WHY PAY (3)

That is why we work directly with many of the insurance providers to provide a no money down service to our clients.  Contact us to find out if we can bill your insurance company directly, so there is no money out of your pocket.  After all, why pay for glasses when you don’t have to?

See It, Touch It, Feel It. The 3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Buy Eyewear Online

There is no doubt that the internet makes life faster and more convenient.  Shopping online can be a great way to find what you are looking for.  Recently we have seen a trend in online eyewear stores that let you “virtually” try on glasses and purchase them for a seemingly lower rate.  Here are three reasons why we think it is important to shop in store when it comes to eyewear.

1. See It

Visiting our downtown location allows you to see a many different designer frames side by side.  The options are endless and easy to compare when you are in a physical location.  Plus, our expert team is happy to answer any questions you may have about the frames in real time.

2. Touch It

The one thing that we have that the internet doesn’t is the ability to physically pick up the frames and try them on.  We encourage you to try on as many frames as you like.  Our team is good at helping determine which types of frames will best suit your face.  Feel free to bring a friend for a second opinion, we want to make sure you love your eyewear.

3. Feel It

The eyewear you purchase may need to be adjusted to better fit your face.  We have the expertise to do that in store, and will make sure your new frames feel great on your face.

By visiting us in store, you can see, touch and feel the quality of our lenses, contact lenses and designer frames.  Our in store eye exams and same day service makes shopping for eyewear easy and convenient.
