At Eye Spy Optical, our mission is to provide unique, handmade eyewear and excellent customer service in a comfortable atmosphere. What could be more relaxing that trying on a simply spectacular pair of eyeglasses in an atmosphere that feels just like your living room? Apparently, Chicagoans agree because Eye Spy was voted Best Designer Eyewear and Best Place to Get Eyewear in NewCity Magazine and the Chicago Reader.
We pride ourselves in putting frames on customers that are bit out-of- the-ordinary. Many of our customers say that they are surprised at what we choose for them, but they love their glasses! Believe it or not, we sell more red and purple glasses, than black and brown glasses! We also do a ton of special orders, so if you are looking for something specific, we can help you find it.
At the end of the day, though, we want to make sure that our customers can see well, look fabulous, and feel great in their glasses.
After 12 years of traveling to the eyewear shows in Paris and New York annually, we have our favorites, but we are always keeping our eyes open for new and unusual lines.
The lines that we carry are imported from Europe and all are handmade. What does this mean? Our frames are hand-cut, hand-polished, and hand-assembled. Therefore, each pair is a little different from the next.
In addition, the frames will last longer, are more durable, and are inherently unique, since only a small number are made and sold to boutiques like Eye Spy Optical. As a result, when a customer purchases a spectacular frame, you might not see the frame at Eye Spy ever again and you probably won't see anyone else wearing it in Chicago!
Our selection of eyewear and sunwear includes:
??? Anne et Valentin (only store in the U.S. with the entire collection!)
