Frames Matter

Frames make a huge difference in your optics, and your overall satisfaction with your glasses. We sometimes are frustrated by new patients who come in, and have never been told ‘no’ on frames that did not fit them. By the time we see them, they are frustrated, have headaches, or generally are just “making do” with their look. We’re not just frame stylists: we’re trained opticians who have all been in the industry for a long time. We will find frames that are made to fit your unique face with your prescription – and nobody else’s. We take into consideration a huge variety of factors: face shapes, current trends, lifestyle decisions, aesthetics, ideal optics, functionality, and your own sense of style. To do that , we carry about about fifty different brands and thousands of frames in the office.

Frame Warranty

We guarantee your frames are free from defects. If any part of your frame or lenses break, under normal wearing conditions, within one year from the date of purchase, return all parts and we will repair or replace it at no charge. Replacement of plastic lenses purchased with an extra scratch coating, antireflective coating, polarization or polycarbonate  is limited to once in a 12 month period. Lens replacement must be in the original prescription. Limited warrantee does not cover: loss, theft, accident, abuse, CR/39 lenses or glass lenses. Some limitations apply.

Petite Adults’ Frames

If you have always had a hard time finding frames that fit your face, but don’t have Saturday morning cartoons on them, you should come by our office. We carry a wide variety of petite frames from various manufacturers, including the luxury brands, designer brands, and basic frame manufacturers. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to fitting frames, so we always make sure to have frames that fit all our patients.
