Sunglass brands we sell

Why being an independent optician affects the sunglass brands we sell

We sell a wide variety of sunglasses at all price points. As an independent optician, we attend optical trade shows to hand-pick the sunglasses that we love. We are not tied to any specific brands like the big chains.

Below is only a selection of sunglass brands that we sell. These brands vary by practice. If you want a specific brand of glasses or sunglasses, please ask as we might sell it in a different practice or be able to order it for you.
