Live Scratch Free


                                                                 Tips for Scratch Free Lenses


Tip 1:  Choose a great Anti-Glare 

Choosing an anti-glare lens that is a better quality will absolutely prolong the life of your lens.  A Crizal Alize coating, for example, has easy cleaning technology, resistance to dirt/dust and great cleanability which in the long run, can prevent scratching.

Tip 2:  Know how to clean your lenses

Cleaning sprays and microfiber cloths are great and serve a wonderful purpose, but the best way to clean your glasses is extremely simple.  Soap and water.  Seriously!  No need to spend money on pre-moisened wipes from a big optical chain or CVS, when the safest thing for your lenses (and your frames) are every day household items.

Tip 3:  Use your case

We have a saying here at L’optique.  If they aren’t on your face, put them in the case.  We know that carrying a case around can be a bit of a hastle sometimes but utilizing your case is extremely important in extending the life of your lenses and frames.


Not only are glasses here to make you look great, but you’ve got to see out of them too.  ;)

Antique Gold is the New Black


At L’optique, we strive to serve the unique customer.  The customer who does not want a name brand stamped on their glasses, who wants something different, who wants to stand out.  We do this with every brand and frame we carefully hand select and sell in our store, keeping our customers in mind.  As some of our customers love colorful, funky styles we also have those that love all things vintage!  For them we carry Retrospecs Eyewear.


The company was started by Jay Owens, restoring gold-filled 1940’s frames in his 18-foot recreational vehicle.   Traveling the world, he collected and restored frames all over the United States.  From American Optical, Bausch & Lomb to Shuron Optical, Owens collected these mass produced frames that were made out of 1/10 12k gold-filled wire – a material that was developed to last forever! Once the company expanded, Retrospecs starting restoring cellulose acetate and combination frames manufactured after WWI from 1940’s-1980’s.  


Stand out.
