At Designer Optics, we take pride in being one of the largest online marketplaces for prescription sunglasses and eyeglasses. Whether you're looking for trendy Ray-Ban Wayfarers, Tom Ford eyeglasses, or any other type of eyewear, we’ve got the best selection - at the best prices.

But how did we get started? Why do we do what we do? How can we offer such low prices on top brands? To learn more, keep reading - and get more details about the story of Designer Optics.

Designer Optics - Born In Brooklyn, Serving The Nation

We founded Designer Optics in 2011 based on a simple idea – that we can offer both fashionable, authentic name brands as well as more affordable sunglasses and eyeglasses in one place

Too often, we had seen designer eyewear marketplaces that focused only on high-end glasses - and excluded those who couldn't spend hundreds of dollars on a single pair of frames. And, on the other hand, we had seen eyewear companies that focused only on bargain frames – and had a poor overall selection.

That's why we founded Designer Optics in 2011 in Brooklyn. We decided to combine the best of both worlds – and offer designer eyewear at the lowest possible prices. From Gucci to Prada, Tom Ford and more, we have a huge variety of frames - all at prices that just about anyone can afford.

Over the last eight years, we've been growing our business, and earning loyal customers not just in Brooklyn - but all throughout the nation. Our online eyewear marketplace has continued to grow and add more frames from top designers, and our dedication to efficiency has allowed us to keep our prices low.

Our Commitment To Our Customers - Quality, Affordability And Authenticity

Before we launched our store way back in 2011, we did some research about the state of eyewear shopping in America, and what customers want from eyewear stores. We found that there were three things that customers wanted.

  1. High quality eyewear that is a perfect fit for their vision – Whether you're getting prescription glasses or sunglasses, or non-prescription shades, you want eyewear that’s built to last – and uses the highest quality lenses and materials.
  2. Eyewear that’s actually affordable – Yes, you may love the look of those Oliver Peoples sunglasses – but you probably can’t drop four figures on a pair of glasses. That’s why, at Designer Optics, we do our best to find the best wholesale bargains on designer eyewear – and keep our glasses affordable.
  3. Eyewear that’s authentic, fashionable, and stylish – Finally (and perhaps most importantly) you want eyewear that makes you feel like a million bucks whenever you put it on. Whether you’re getting ready for the day and putting on your glasses, or tossing on your designer shades for a day at the beach, we want to offer eyewear that helps you express your unique personality and style – and that makes you look great.

At Designer Optics, our commitment is to always keep this in mind – to offer the highest-quality frames and lenses at an affordable price, and from a wide variety of designers that can match your style.
