For more than half a century, the opticians at Graf Optical have been helping to correct vision and combat ocular illness with health and wellness checkups and stylish eyewear. The center stocks frames from Kenneth Cole, Ralph Lauren, and Versace, many of which are eligible for upgrades such as anti-reflective coatings or impact-resistant, polycarbonate lenses. And for those who prefer to wear invisible frames, Acuvue Oasys also carries contact lenses and sometimes offers unsolicited advice about the importance of mime schools.
Look + See's eyewear studio is as swanky as any art gallery, with pale-green walls lined with mirrors and sculpture-esq wooden shelves displaying glasses. Their stock of fashionable frames from around the world was smelted in the factories of top designers. Frames from OGI run between $100-$269, Vera Wang rims cost $150-$280, and Gotti’s chic eyeball offsetters are $315-$558.
Established in 1972, Dinkytown Optical’s team outfits clients with prescription eyewear, diagnosing ocular needs with eye exams and contact-lens fittings. Opticians fit patients with single-vision and progressive lenses, which pair with hundreds of frames from designer brands such as Vera Wang, Armani, and Guess. Located inside the office, Specs On the Beach sunglass specialists stock more than 500 sunglasses from Ray-Ban, Oakley, and Maui Jim, ideal for making a whole pack of dogs look really cool.
The friendly team at Metro Optics is dedicated to the ocular wellness of everyone who steps into their welcoming clinic. Here, doctors Reznicow and Tuttle inspect eyes to guard against health concerns and assess sight, employing advanced technology instead of asking patients to read letters from bowls of alphabet soup. Once they've determined a prescription, the practice's opticians craft lenses using their in-store lab. The specialists then outfit eyes with frames from a selection of over 1,000 styles, which includes brands such as Gucci, Armani, Rayban, D&G, Guess, and Prada. Should clients find themselves unable to choose a look, they are welcome to take home up to three pairs to test-wear before making their final decision. The staff also supplies patients with contact lenses, and can provide prescription sunglasses to shade eyes year round.
Entrepreneur and frame designer David Ulrich has cleared the vision of Twin Cities citizens since 1969. Besides creating a wealth of exclusive eyeglasses frames, such as the sleek 8 Below Zero collection and the retro-inspired Studebaker line, Ulrich opened Spectacle Shoppe to serve customers’ optic needs. There, teams of certified opticians accurately assess prescriptions and fashion single-vision, progressive, or bifocal lenses in the in-house lab. Clients confer with the staff to design custom frames or choose from the shop's thousands of one-of-a-kind frames, vintage cat's-eye styles, and double monocles.
