mykita glassesTraditional spring and summer wardrobes have a lot of "must-have" items; sandals, shorts and that irreplaceable t-shirt that fits just right to name a few of the things that fill our closets. Perhaps though, as temperatures rise and the sun shines brighter and hotter, the most treasured part of anyone’s spring wardrobe is a classy and unique pair of sunglasses. Or, as in most of our cases, pairs of sunglasses.

Prescription Lens & Frame Warranty from The Eye Bar

We have a great warranty that is included with your prescription lenses purchased at The Eye Bar. 

1. 2 year scratch protection warranty. If anytime within 2 years your lenses are scratched or are defective with general use, we will replace them at no charge.

2. Our "oh no" or "my dog chewed on the glasses" warranty. Within those 2 years if your frames or lenses are damaged due to accidental breakage or abuse we will replace the lenses or any part of the frame at 40% off the regular price. We have to replace the same frame or lenses to be covered. All frames are covered under a manufactures warranty against defects for a minimum of 1 year.

How to clean your glasses? Please pay attention!

So I have been noticing several customers lately who seem to always scratch the prescription lenses they have. The lenses we use are the best available and always use either Crizal Alize, Crizal Avance or the equivalent from Zeiss, Kodak, or Hoya for Anti-reflective coatings. The digital progressives and single vision lenses all need to be cleaned in the same manner and have scratch resistant coatings (note - not scratch proof). Please use your cleaning kits and cleaning cloths. A little hand soap and water once in awhile wont hurt either!

See all that Oliver Peoples has to offer at The Eye Bar. You can also buy the frames on our eshop and we ship anywhere in the world!

Alain Mikli bought by Luxottica!

Design powerhouse Alain Mikli has sold out to giant world dominating Luxottica for likely in the neighborhood of 90 million Euros! Alain Mikli has long been a successful independent eyewear designer and manufacturer in France. We have admired his frames for years, however, they were never for us at The Eye Bar. The designs seemed to be dated the last few years.  Nothing really innovative or fresh. Maybe that will change. Of course its more likely that you might start seeing Alain Mikli everywhere. Its crazy to think one company, Luxottica, owns so many brands of eyewear. If you buy your frames from Pearle Vision, Lenscrafters, Target Optical, Sears Optical, Sunglasses Hut, iLori or Optical Shop of Aspen, they are all owned by Luxoittica! Did you know that Luxottica also owns a major eye insurance company? Yep, they own EyeMed too!
