Since 1935, Moss Optical has helped fashion-forward customers achieve clear, accurate vision with personalized lenses, designer frames, and a commitment to customer service. Expert staffers help visitors determine which type of lenses best fit their needs, including single-vision lenses ($129+), basic progressive lenses ($259+), and telephoto lenses that allow them to see inside their coworkers' brains. All specs come with scratch-resistant coating, UV protection, and finished edge work; an antireflective coating can also be added, which makes glasses easier to clean ($75).
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.
The crew at Fridley Optical has cared for customers’ eyesight since 1978. Because they want to treat each customer like they’re a part of the family, Fridley’s staff goes beyond general eye exams and expands their service menu to include services such as pre- and post-LASIC care, custom contact fittings, glaucoma treatment, and pink-eye treatment. They provide comprehensive eye exams and stock their store with hundreds of stylish frames from designers such as Caprio and Pavi Optics as well as contacts, bifocals, and trifocal lenses.
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.
