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.
In our Optical boutique, we carry many top designer eyewear brands and we love each line for many reasons. All the same, certain brands have proven to be standout winners with both our patients and our staff and we’d like to share them with you.
Amy T – Assistant Manager & Licensed Optician
I have always been drawn to retro style frames. I love the new Paradigm line from Kenmark Eyewear. My favorite style is the Paradigm 19-06 in rose gold. The color is so soft and the frame is very lightweight. It gives me the retro look I love with a modern twist on a classic style.
Vera Wang, A Fit [VA30], Black Marble
Since I do have a long, thin face, I went with this rounded square frame. I knew I wanted something bigger than my last glasses which were smaller but I kept gravitating towards the oversize style. I knew I wanted some color to it also since it will complement and help me look put together no matter what I wear!
A Student's Perspective - Landon
This month we will have a student’s perspective for our Optician’s Picks in honor of all our student patients going back to school this fall. Landon has chosen a Tommy Hilfiger model frame, TH1473.
Color: matte brown. Also available matte black, matte blue, matte dark ruthenium
He says that he chose this frame because they are lightweight and he also likes the Tommy logo that is on the side.
Here is Betty's Top Frame pick!
Optician: Betty M.
Frame Pick: Motivate by Kensie
Size: 51/16 and 53/16
What Betty says about the Motivate by Kensie…
I chose the Motivate because of the clear color that allows more play with my wardrobe. I’m currently letting my hair go gray and it doesn’t look as stark with my hair and skin tone. The pop of color on the temples keeps the frame from completely disappearing. This frame is very comfortable and fits my bridge perfectly. It is available in two additional colors, brown and blue.
Here is Jess' Top Frame pick!
Optician: Jess S.
Frame Pick: Fossil 6091
Color: Transparent Black
What Jessica says about the Fossil 6091…
I love this frame for its chic, yet versatile, qualities. While technically categorized as being a man’s frame, this certainly could be worn by any woman. Many ladies on the market for a new set of frames don’t realize just how many options they have at their disposal. If she so chooses, a woman could opt for a man’s frame without issue, and many certainly do--the men’s section is one of my favorite places in the store to shop for frames to fit my specific tastes. The frame’s transparency is bold yet stylish, certainly meeting today’s current trends, and because of its neutral color, it could be worn confidently with almost any outfit and by any man or woman brave enough to sport a larger, more up-to-the-minute frame!
Here is Alice's Top Frame pick!
Optician: Alice C.
Frame Pick: Zac Posen, style Irina
What Alice has to say about the Irina...
I chose the Zac Posen style, Irina, because of it's classic tortoise shell style with an eye catching gold accent across the top. It has an understated style that is modern, wearable and comfortable.
Here is Sherry's Top Frame pick!
Optician: Sherry D.
Frame Pick: Kate Spade, Style name Vandra
Color: Black 807
Sherry has been a licensed optician for over 20 years with VisionMakers.
Sherry says about the Vandra...
I like the Kate Spade Vandra because of its sleek classy style with a slight cat eye shape. The frame fit is great and feels good on. The quality is excellent and it gives the wearer a rich, chic look. I feel you can wear this frame with anything, can be dressed up or down with the right outfit and accessories.
