Optique de Mel's optician owner, Mel Clague, personally assists customers while cultivating a stylish garden of designer frames and lenses for men, women, and children. Pick a set of eye fences from the almost 40 frames populating the Richard Scot collection, which pairs thin, impact-resistant lenses with metal, plastic, or handcrafted frames
available in two to three colors. An invisible, anti-reflective coating covers each lightweight, UV-resistant lens to improve night driving, thwart fluorescent lighting fatigue, combat computer glare, and increase the chance of victory during staring contests with laser-eyed robots. It typically takes at least a half hour for Clague to properly fit glasses before sending a courier owl to the land of frame-forging with the order, expecting the majestic creatures to return 2–5 days later with the personalized spectacles. Each lens is then carefully finagled into its home on-site. The one-year limited warranty covers manufacturer defects to guarantee a level of quality normally reserved for the royal retinas of duchesses, dukes, and calculator salesman.
