Display cases filled with frames by designers such as Ray-Ban and Paul Frank dress the lemon-yellow walls at Paquette Opticians. Licensed optician and personal eyewear consultant Bonnie Boney oversees the shop's extensive collection, which includes frames for kids, athletes, and nearsighted housecats. In addition to helping clients sift through frame styles, Bonnie and her staff also fit eyes with contacts.
Though SEE Eyewear?s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop?s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn?t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
Through education and acculturation we evolve the lenses through which we see our world. Today's side deal will change the border around those lenses with $150 worth of chic frames from SF Optics for $70. Choose from a selection of glasses so fab that "two-eyes" becomes a backhanded moniker only slightly less potent than "popcorn toes."
