Where to Buy Eyewear
It's a shopper’s paradise if you're in the market for new glasses and sunglasses. You can go anywhere from a discount optician in a big box retailer to luxury boutiques featuring the most exclusive fashion brands. What are you looking for? We help you navigate spectacle shopping.

Eyewear Fashion & Trends

Eyeglasses 101
Gone are the days when wearing glasses is a chore, because eyewear doubles up as a style statement, too. It's all about function, fun, and fashion, too.

Sunglasses
There is so much more to sunglasses than meets the eye. Shades are cool, fashionable, and help define your personality, and they give your eyes all the UV protection they need.

Choosing a Frame
Tips for selecting eyeglasses that best fit your lifestyle, budget and personal style.

Major Eyewear Brands

Eyewear Boutiques
Boutiques specializing in sunglasses only or exclusive frame collections are where you should head if you don't need a prescription or can get your lenses from your optician or eye doctor.

Eyewear Care
A good quality pair of glasses should last you at least two years (be sure you go to the eye doctor’s for an annual exam to make sure your prescription hasn’t changed). Because most manufacturers offer just a one-year warranty, here’s how you can take great care of your eyewear to keep them looking and working fine beyond 12 months.
