$20 for $150 Toward Complete Set of Prescription Lenses with Frames
Constructed with materials that range from durable titanium to lightweight plastic acetate, the optical boutique’s frames ($150+) include selections from well-known designers such as Kala ($195+), OGI ($195+), and Oga ($295+). Techs can also shield single-vision lenses with an antireflective coating and a two-year scratch-resistant warranty ($220).
Striking a balance between the cosmopolitan classiness of a designer's studio and the warm friendliness of a neighborhood shop, Village Optique’s small, family-run boutique dresses eyes in frames that exude contemporary or traditional fashion. A staff well-versed in the intricacies of ocular styling assists customers from the moment they walk in the door, giving them little time to idly observe the boutique’s purple-hued walls, distinctive wooden chandelier, and collection of psychedelic eye charts. Those who do pause to take in the décor’s understated elegance may find it the perfect complement to an artful selection of eyewear from designers such as Theo, Italy's Jee Vice, Etnia Barcelona, and Boz by J.F. Rey. Frames constructed with durable titanium, stainless steel, and lightweight plastic acetate provide a wealth of options regardless of face shape and personal preference.
