Our optical boutique is managed by Jim Elzroth, Board Certified Optician, who has extensive training in technical aspects of the laboratory as well as years of experience in frame styling and lens selection. This allows him to facilitate frame and lens selection to make it both functional and fashionable because the ultimate goal is that you not only see well, but look good doing it! Jim has been with AOG for almost twenty years.
Our frames are generally titanium, stainless steel, aluminum or a combination. These materials are lightweight while retaining shape and fit, and resist reacting to skin which can result in discoloration and cause discomfort.
Lens options include the lightest and thinnest polymers available, the most advanced progressive multifocal brands, superior anti-reflective coatings, and other features to make your investment worthwhile.
We have over 600 frames for your selection in a myriad of sizes and colors. Some of the stylish designer lines we carry include:
BCBG, Calvin Klein, CK, Costa del Mar, DKNY, Ellen Tracy, Flexon, Gant, Lulu Guinness, Maui Jim, Nautica, Nike, Police, Polo, Ralph Lauren, Rudy Project, Silhouette, Ted Baker, Prada, Tory Burch, Versace, Modo, Tag Heuer, Adrienne Vittadini and Carrera.
We carry Crizal Anti-Reflective Coating, Rudy Project sunglasses, Costa Del Mar sunglasses, Maui Jim sunglasses, and Silhouette, plus many other brands that are fashionable and functional.
This is not a comprehensive list, many frames may be specially ordered.
Matching Eyeglass Frames to Face Shapes
Three main points should be considered when choosing and eyeglass frame for your face shape according to the Vision Council of America (VCA)
- The frame shape should contrast with the face shape
- The frame size should be in scale with the face size
- Eyewear should repeat your personal best feature (such as a blue frame to match blue eyes
While most faces are a combination of shapes and angles, there are seven basic face shapes:
- base-down triangle
- base-up triangle
Here is a further description of these face shapes and which types of frames work for each. Our optician Jim Elzroth can help you use these guidelines to choose your new eyewear.”
