$35 for an Eye Exam and $200 Toward Eyewear ($305 Value)

After a thorough 50-minute eye exam from a certified optometrist, prescription lenses ($170) are paired with designer frames from Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith, and Anne et Valentin ($175+).

Anthony Aiden Opticians

Amid the boutiques of East Village, Anthony Aiden Opticians stands out as a purveyor of not only designer, but one-of-a-kind eyewear. Vintage-inspired frames from Oliver Peoples, with whom Anthony Aiden partnered to open their flagship Soho store, form the crux of the shop's off-the-shelf collection. For truly unique eyewear, though, the shop can fabricate replicas of any plastic frame in a wide range of colors, furnishing customers with brand new pairs of discontinued, vintage, or otherwise unobtainable frames. Eyepieces can be further personalized with custom lens coloring, which reduces eyestrain by imbuing lenses with green hues, rosy tints, or tiny umbrellas.


The vibe in the shop is fantastic, and the staff is very knowledgable.
