Excellent shop with friendly staff. I needed a quick repair since the screw fell out of my glasses. Karen was so wonderful and helpful. Thank you, thank you! Go here for any glasses you need. The styles are fun.

What an incredible experience! Caiti and the team were professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The selection of frames was phenomenal with unique eyewear for every taste. They went the extra mile at every turn - I can’t praise them highly enough! A+++

Krispie Bambury

Outstanding selection of frames and first-rate customer service. From trying on the frames to fitting the prescription glasses, there is a difference in the caliber of the product and service. Their attention to detail in selecting the ideal frame and lens was invaluable, and the team's continuous support from the eye exam to the fitting went smoothly. Highly recommended!

Kathrina Ledesma-Holder

Finally an optician who doesn't like boring glasses. Groovy! I felt very well advised, wasn't pressured and was able to take the time I needed to make my decision. And so it was the glasses frame that the optician recommended first, with a sure feeling for my style. Very good advice. Thanks!

Had my eye test with Anna-Marie. Nothing but praise, very comprehensive and professional. Have had tests done with other optometrists but this was another level, explained everything in relaxed and leisurely manner.
