Our warm and welcoming team hand-select unique and beautiful quality frames and sunglasses, and take the time to personalise your consultation.

We love to support other local businesses, and that's why we use Australian-made lenses - only the best for you!

Arguably Brisbane's most stylish practice, our vision is to provide a locally owned, friendly and professional service for families in the area, so come in and check out our beautiful showroom.
