Subscribing to one of Coco Chanel’s credos, “fashion is not something that exists in dresses only,” the ocular experts in charge of Eyestar Optical outfit their display racks with glasses that aren’t just functional, but also stylish. While available brands vary by location, many frames come from high-end designers such as Gucci, Prada, and Tom Ford, which can subtly complement elegant outfits or add dramatic flair to overall looks. In addition to boosting fashion cred, select locations offer eye exams to suss out any current or impending eye-related maladies, as well as contact-lens fittings for those uninterested in wearing glasses or welding together two monocles.
For more than 20 years, Ideal Optical has helped equip customers with the right prescriptions and stylish frames. After eye doctors thoroughly inspect eyes for ocular issues and prescriptions, lenses are made within the optical laboratory. Then, customers can choose one of several stylish frames from brands such as Gucci, Ray-Ban, Nike, and Dior.
In a 4,000 square-foot showroom stocked with more than 3,000 frames, you're bound to find the perfect specs. But Optical Thirty 8 doesn't rest on its massive selection; they also offer a number of services, packages, and extras that make the complicated ordeal of buying new glasses a simple one. They strive to keep the process of getting an exam, choosing a frame, and creating the glasses down to an hour or less. On-site eye exams are available, and so are free contact lens fittings. With their package deals, the price tag you see on a favored frame is what you pay—it includes the frame, the single-vision lenses, the x-ray abilities, and the lens coatings in one price. The coatings are a treat, as well. From scratch resistance to anti-reflection, all five of their protective lens coatings come complimentary with every pair of glasses. They'll even replace the nosepads and screws on an existing pair for no charge.
With frames from dozens of brands backed by a staff of eyesight experts, Focuspoint Optical helps their clients' faces look as sharp as their vision. Designs by Tom Ford, Tory Burch, Emporio Arman, and Diesl frame prescription lenses to ensure everyday specs and sunglasses maintain a crisp outlook on the world and a proper dress code during library sting operations. Meanwhile, onsite opticians perform full eye examinations and ocular health checkups, and ophthalmologists treat clients in need of specialized care.
We started Gafas in 2005 in a small shop on Queen Street West offering only hand selected collections in sunglasses. A year later we moved to our current space and converted our practice to a full optical store. Our motivation is derived from our passion in eyewear and the many facets of customers we get to interact with. E
For half a century, the opticians and frame consultants at Crown Opticians have balanced designer frames with specialized lenses upon the noses of near- and far-sighted clients. Frames by designers like Gucci, Prada, Christian Dior, and Tom Ford suspend from clear display hooks on the walls of the boutique's interior. To supplement the advanced reflective technology of mirrors, the office's innovative Optikam lets clients compare side-by-side pictures of themselves in different glasses. Instead of snapping shaky self-shots with cell phones or point-and-shoots, clients pose in front of the Optikam's lens, posing for multi-part shots that reveal each pair's most flattering angles. The camera also serves an analytical purpose, silently taking precise measurements used by doctors for final fittings and processing.
