Our optical boutique carries thousands of pairs of frames ranging from sleek to sexy, and conservative to contemporary.

We have privileged partnerships with brands locally exclusive to The Bixby Eye Center, such as Gazal, Tom Davies, and Rain City. Our fashion variety includes sunglasses, transitions, and sports-specific eyewear such as shooting glasses. We want you to feel confident whenever and wherever you wear glasses.
