Spectacle Frames

From a distance frames can look quite similar. It's when you get up close and personal that the detail and quality becomes apparent. Click to view our portfolio.

We personally hand-pick around 400 optical frames to display in our collection. These are selected based upon uniqueness, quality, workmanship and our knowledge of spectacle frames. 

And if that's not enough to choose from, our digital catalogs give us fast access to 160 brands and over 22,000 models of optical frame in every shape, colour, size and material imaginable. Many can be delivered to us over night for inspection by you within a day or two.

You won't see many "brand name" spectacle frames in our store, because the best frames are designed by specialized optical frame designers, not handbag and clothing designers. We also don't sell optical frames online because they require proper fitting, adjustments and personalized measurements for good quality prescription lenses.

So, which frame do you buy?

With so many spectacle frames now available on the market, it's important that you understand what you're paying for in a frame. When it comes to spectacle frames, you generally get what you pay for. There are vast differences in quality and inferior frames will also affect the vision provided by the lenses.

Good quality frames will require less maintenance. Hinges are better engineered, more resilient and will last longer. The materials used in a quality frame are first grade and will resist corrosion, won't react with your skin and are more comfortable to wear. Because they will last you longer, they will ultimately cost you less.

How to choose the right frame

Glasses frames are a tactile and personal choice. Feeling them on your nose and ears as well has how the colours look against your eyes and skin are all important parts of making the best choice for you. There are also more technical skills required to ensure you get the most out of the lenses which the frames will ultimately hold. While a frame may look fantastic, if the lenses don't function properly, it's not serving it's main purpose; which is to improve the way you look (see!).

We enjoy fitting our frames and most of all, we love seeing our customers wearing a great frame that suits their style and personality. 

What can our frame stylists do for you?

Our frame stylists are experienced and undertake a lot of training. It's something that sets us apart from retail chain stores. They understand face shape, colour, fashion trends and simply...what works. They'll probably take you outside of your comfort zone and they're not going to show you just a classic black frame. You may have a frame in mind, but if it's not a great fit, or if we think it's the wrong frame for you, we'll tell you, and we'll explain why.

Our reputation is at stake with every frame we fit. 

We'll also be balancing the completed prescription lens and frame combination so that it will be functional and comfortable. Ultimately we want you to feel great in your new frames, but we also want you to wear them. 

Personal service included

All our frames come with much more than what you walk out with. You can always return for service, cleaning and adjustments free of charge. Most minor repairs can be completed in house for little or no cost and if your frames find themselves in need of more drastic repairs, we can fix most things without the need to buy a new frame.
