Healthy & Beauty in Providence

Select Local Merchants

Owners Jed and Jessica Leach established Opt Eyewear Boutique in 2010, and set out to bring luxury sunglasses, frames, and lenses from all corners of the globe back to their Providence shop. Their ever-growing stock includes eyewear from renowned brand names—such as Prada, Lafont, and Ted Baker—as well as the latest styles from independent manufacturers. Most recently, they’ve shifted their focus back onto regional soil, carrying products crafted by local students and startup companies such as Arborglass. They help shoppers navigate the selection inside their newly renovated store, decorated with sleek wood floors and mod white furnishings that recall boutiques found sprinkled across London and the inside of Martha Stewart’s mind.
