Making a decision about your eyewear...

Goes beyond good vision and makes a statement about who you are. Your decision affects how you see and also how you want to be seen by others. But with so many different styles to choose from, getting the right look for your face and your lifestyle can be overwhelming.
Our boutique  offers a wide range of quality eyewear including the latest styles in designer sunglasses and prescription eyeglasses.

Our staff will help you find the best fit for your specific needs and explain how different lenses and frames will impact your vision. They will help you narrow down your choices so you can find the look, fit and functionality you want from your eyewear.

Our optical offers a large selection of eyeglasses, designer frames, and sunglasses. We carry the latest European and American designer eyewear collections in a variety of styles, colors, and materials including acetates, titanium, stainless steel, and carbon fiber.

Eyeglass Basics

Eyeglasses are more popular today than ever, despite the availability of contact lenses and vision correction surgery.

Sunglasses

Well-chosen sunglasses offer fashion, function and protection from UV rays and can slow formation of cataracts!

Prescription Eyeglasses

Get tips on caring for your lenses and frames and learn about the benefits of bifocals, progressives, high index lenses, and prescription sunglasses.

Lens Treatments

Today’s eyeglass lens treatments make a real difference in what you see, and what you don’t see. Scratches, glare, ultraviolet rays—all are potential hazards or annoyances and can be minimized or eliminated by a lens treatment. Seattle has some of the worst glare in the USA- really!

Take me there

We can order almost any contact lense!

We can also order all of the most advanced contact lens brands!

Disposable Contacts

Disposable contact lenses are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability than hard and rigid lenses. All contacts are not the same, and are medical devices that are on the most sensitive part of the body, the cornea.

Eye Exams for Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are medical devices.
A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your appropriate optimized contact lens Rx. Therefore a contact lens evaluation is an additional service as it takes more time, expertise, and potential risk.

Contact Lenses-Live Your Best Life

We offer a wide selection of contact lenses including disposable soft contacts, bifocal/multifocal, toric, and colored, and  scleral lenses. Whether you wear daily, weekly or old monthly disposables, we might prescribe anything- we are independent and therefore not limited in what we can prescribe. We are not tools of big corporations when not virtue-signaling.  We just care about you and your eyes.We are biased for quality though.

A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.We will determine the best contact lens modality based on your lifestyle needs and the shape and health of your eye. In many cases, you’ll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam.

We are extremely current with the latest, finest contact lens technology.

We might follow up on the initial evaluation visit and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to optimize. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the eyes and lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.

Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses

These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision, and high oxygen permeability.

Multifocal Contact Lenses

Fortunately for those who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option! Multifocal and progressive contact lenses are also available in contact both soft and rigid varieties.
We prescribe a lot of these for folks who know what dialing a phone meant, or what a record looks like! Even some kids!

Contact Lenses for the "Hard-to-Fit" Patient

Challenges such as high astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus, and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time, patience and expense.
