Oakland’s East Bay Eyewear offers the finest  eyeglasses, custom made for your eyes and designed for the activities you most enjoy.  Our customers from around the San Francisco Bay area seek us out for our latest fashions, innovative, advanced lens designs and our commitment to help them see better and look their best. 

How do you know what glasses look great on you?  Who would you trust to tell you?  In my office, I’ve seen a lot of people who were truly delighted with their new glasses.  They could see well at every distance and were absolutely thrilled with how they looked wearing them.  That’s what they were looking for.  They were so pleased with the whole experience of getting glasses and not just with  the final result. 

But not everyone had that kind of great experience.  No, I’ve seen some people who felt like they were rushed to make a decision and who didn’t get good advice from the person behind the counter.  To boot, maybe the glasses didn’t fit well or didn’t complement their face or coloring. Perhaps the glasses weren’t suited for the kinds of activities they do. Something important was lacking.

What’s the biggest difference between these two groups,  those who are happy with their eyewear and those who aren’t?  You’d be  surprised—the biggest difference is the kind of service they  encountered, and who was there to be their trusted adviser.   When you  bring a friend with you to look at frames, you’ve brought somebody you  trust to tell you how you look.  That’s almost always a great idea.  But  an expert in eyewear can help you in other ways, too.  With training  and experience, they can point out how the shape, size and contour of  particular eyewear can frame your best features.  With their fingers on  the pulse of eyewear fashion, they can help guide you to the look you  want.  Besides fashion sense,  you need an expert in lens design who  will take the time to suggest lenses that will help you see your best in  the variety of activities that make up your life.  Along with expertise  in the technical parts of eyewear fitting and design, they need to know  who you are and what’s your lifestyle to help you find the right  glasses.  They need to listen.

Our staffs at East Bay Eyewear have  that kind of experience and that kind of approach to be your trusted adviser about eyeglasses.  Let them help you choose the eyewear that will enhance your lifestyle, look fantastic and help you see the world  clearly--maybe like you’ve never seen it before.  You’ll enjoy the  experience!
