An Optical Story

We have been in the optical and sunglass industry for over 35 years combined. 

We’ve both worked for other independent optical shops and alongside Optometrists and master Opticians.  One of our favorite independent brands was bought by a huge corporation and then after a stint working for an online eyewear company, we realized our passion had to turn to purpose. We opened our own shop, and we support independent eyewear brands that are not mass produced or corporate owned. 

Eyewear is very personal.  We are all designed differently, have different tastes and styles, and one brand doesn’t fit all.  We are passionate about our craft, and we thoughtfully curate our shop to offer unique and interesting brands that will appeal to those with an independent spirit. For those who want to stand out and be unique and original with their eyewear.  We love design, architecture and art.  Walking into our shop is like walking into an art gallery.  Eyewear is art that sits on your face and a reflection of who you are.  We want to be a part of it reflecting your best self!

We love being in the center of SOCO consisting of all the design showrooms.  Designers, architects and artists wear Glasses!  And we have the best selection of glasses and sunglasses in Costa Mesa!  Our clients can connect with us and appreciate the brands that we carry and the story that comes along with it from the handmade materials, unique shapes and colors, and not to mention the best optical lenses and customization of lenses to match!  We also love being a part of the Independent small business shop owners within the OC Mix.  We as a community can offer something different, something unique, something you can’t get anywhere else. 

Thanks for being you.
