What You'll Get

Jump to: Reviews | Perfecter

Many view looking good and seeing well as dual goals attainable only by monocle-graced cyclopes. Envision your new visage with today's Groupon. For $50,you get $125 worth of frames and glasses lenses at Q Optical, Boston Magazine's pick for Best Eyeglasses in 2005. Located on Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay, right off the T Green Line, Q Optical specializes in high-end European frames and lenses that refract light with elegance and subtlety.

Q Optical’s wide selection features frames from Eyephorics, Oliver Peoples, and Alain Mikli. If you’ve stayed away from upmarket, fashionable frames in the past, rightly fearing attracting too many dates, deploy this deal in combination with a claim that you are a prop comic to achieve a new look that won't cut into Boggle night.

Switch from those utilitarian, Soviet-era frames you’ve been wearing in Soviet-era musicals about Frank Lloyd Wright to one of the exclusive designer frames offered at Q Optical, and notice the difference in how people treat you. Observe, through your new crystal-clear lenses, how birds now land on your shoulder to greet you with song each morning and how strangers regale you with tales of adventure just to be in the proximity of your stylish eyewear.

This deal is valid for frames and lenses only; contacts, eye exams, and insurance not included.


Boston Magazine voted Q Optical Best Optical Shop in 2002 and Best Eyeglasses in 2005, praising the glasses' panache:

  • Optical issues are somber enough, so we love a spectacles shop that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Such is the case at Q Optical, where visitors are greeted by whimsical, four-eyed steel sculptures and treated to fun and fancy frames by Gucci, Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith, and Paul Frank. – Best of Boston 2005
  • The personable staff will walk you through the pros and cons of current trends until you feel comfortable finding the right fit for your face. – Best of Boston 2002

Three Citysearchers and three Yelpers give Q Optical a solid 3.5 stars:

  • Styles are the best available, anywhere in this world! Not the standard frames as seen in the 2 dozen shops I visited before finding Q Optical. – wildmark, Citysearch
