NICOLE!

Posted on

What attracted you to the optical industry?      I accidentally fell into it. I answered an ad for a receptionist at an optometrist’s office, and by the end of the first week I was pre-testing patients, and then by the end of my first year I had started to work in the lab edging […]


GREENERY!

Posted on

Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017, ‘Greenery’, is a bright and joyful lime green that lends itself well to graphic design, textiles, and of course – eyewear! We often find ourselves recommending green frames to our clients for a variety of reasons. For blonde hair and blue eyes, the colour compliments your features perfectly […]


SAMANTHA

Posted on

  Wonderfully talented optician Samantha has the ability to make any customer who walks into our shop feel comfortable and supported as they make an investment in a new frame. This swan-y beauty has been endlessly helpful to me since I started working at Opticianado and in my decision to become an optician myself. I took […]

Posted on

I remember being a young teenager in the early 2000s, and some of the truly regrettable stylistic choices I made (rhinestones and low-rise jeans everywhere).

WE LOVE FRENCH EYEWEAR

Posted on

There’s an elusive je-ne-sais-quoi that has made French style and fashion a beacon of excellence for decades, and the same can be said of their eyewear. While there are plenty of neutrals to choose from that would fit the chic-est of any Parisian wardrobe, we also carry funky colours that are balanced out by clean, […]

Here is where he found Spectaculars – a Long Island based frame manufacturer still adhering to the traditional hand-made process. The shapes we all know and love, […]
