Contacts and Specs has been dishing up steaming platters of freshly minted eyewear since 1982. Its studio is far flung from the gritty, bare-bones ophthalmologists' offices of old, featuring burnished wood floors, overhead chandeliers, and optical wares displayed on walls like fine jewelry. With spectacles from numerous high-end designers, the options are as aesthetically pleasing as they are visually clarifying. Pick up a pair of classic tortoiseshell frames from Oliver Peoples for $315, or get sassy with cat's-eye frames from Salt ($285). Shield your socket-warmers from sun damage with a pair of Blinde sunglasses for $265, or pick up a fancy wooden vanity case ($159) for storing pre-existing pairs of pince-nez.

Glasses frames have come a long way from the clunky, squarish black frames that were originally used to punish children for squinting in church. With the bevy of eye-based potentialities squirming at your fingertips, a visit to Contacts and Specs will have you looking chic and seeing the hungry dire wolf on the horizon clearly. A staff of skilled opticians on hand for tending to all eye needs from lid to lash ensures high-quality customer service. Whether you just want to update your look or finally be rid of the iron manacles you've been using as a makeshift field glass since the prison break, a visit to Contacts and Specs will fit the bill.


Yelpers and four Citysearchers give Contacts and Specs four stars:

  • The selection of frame [sic] is unreal, The store is beautiful, The staff is very helpful and honest. If you want to look your best in glasses this is the only place to shop. – Queeni, Citysearch
  • The doctor was amazing, she has so much life and positive vibes. I really had a comfortable time, even laughed a lot. Super excited about picking up my new specs! – doejo w., Yelp

Contacts and Specs

Since 1982, the family behind Contacts and Specs has outfitted eyes in a slew of designer frames and contact lenses. Each in-house optometrist draws from at least a decade of experience when determining prescriptions through 20- to 30-minute exams or providing Lasik consultations. The knowledgeable staff helps clients to navigate through neat rows of designer frames from brands such as Ray-Ban and Mont Blanc. A curtained-off area lined with damask wallpaper, curvy, white mirrors, and whimsical lighting provides a discreet place for clients to try out frames or reenact favorite fashion montages.
