Comprehensive Eye Exams

Medical Eye Care


We carry the largest selection of frames in the county for all budgets but we are especially well known for our boutique lines, which are beautiful, well made, small batch and exclusive frames. We carefully curate our selection to bring our customers the most sought after styles as well as unusual, playful ones.

The best way to shop for the perfect glasses and sunglasses is to do it in person. With the guidance of our knowledgeable opticians you can feel confident that your frames work well with your unique features as well as your prescription.


We believe that everyone has a right to quality eye care, which starts with finding the right doctor. Your eye care needs are unique, and we are dedicated to providing detailed, tailored exams in order to address all your vision and eye health needs. Come in and see for yourself.
