Benefits of Shopping Locally for Your Eyewear

You have many options when it comes to buying a new pair of glasses. Everywhere you turn there is a chain store, and online eyeglass sellers are becoming increasingly popular. Nothing, however, will ever beat the shopping experience you will have at a local eyeglass shop. Here are just a few of the many reasons you should consider a visit to your favorite local Massachusetts eyewear boutique:

  • Try before you buy: One major reason you should never buy your eyewear online is because you won’t have the opportunity to try on frames. Every face is different, and that makes it crucial to find the right frames for your face shape and your style preferences.
  • Get advice from experts: If you visit a chain store, you can never truly know the level of expertise and knowledge of the sales representatives. When you buy from a small business, you can rest assured knowing that the employees that help you are trained properly and are passionate about what they do.
  • Support local business: Shopping at small businesses is one of the best ways you can support your local community. By keeping your spending local, you enrich the entire community, encourage environmental sustainability, and boost local character and prosperity.

If you’re looking for a local eyeglass shop in Dorchester, look no further than Eye & Eye Optics. One trip to our store and you will immediately see all the benefits of buying local. If you have questions, or want to make an appointment for an eye exam, simply call 617-296-0066.

Accessorize with Your Eyewear

 

Accessories are a terrific way to add ‘that little something’ to any outfit. Watches, hats, scarves, and jewelry can complete your ensemble, or even help you dress up or down. The same old outfit with different accessories is given new life.

Here’s a question for you, though – do you consider your eyewear as an accessory? Because you should! No one would consider wearing the same shoes at a formal event that they wear with a t-shirt and jeans – we believe that eyewear should be the same. You wouldn’t own just one hat or scarf or tie or necklace… so why stop at one pair of glasses? Even celebrities are picking up on this new trend!

Glasses come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors nowadays that it’s almost impossible to choose just one pair. To that point, maybe it’s time to expand your collection.  Get something with a pop of color for days that you’re feeling sassy. Something with a nontraditional shape (think square, round, or horn) can be fun and funky. Everyone needs something classic for dressier occasions.

The best part of using glasses as an accessory is how affordable they are. Shoes, belts, purses, and jewelry can get very expensive, but the right pair of eyewear doesn’t have to break the bank. This is especially true if you visit Eye & Eye Optics!

For more information on how you can expand your collection of eyewear, visit Eye & Eye Optics on Dorchester Avenue. Here, you can see a vast collection of glasses, one of which could be your next favorite accessory!

It’s Never Too Early to Wear Sunglasses!

Sunglasses aren’t only a fashion statement – they are also an important part of protecting your eye health. And, believe it or not, it is never too early to start wearing them!

Did you know that anytime your children are out in the sun they should be wearing sunglasses? UV exposure can have a number of harmful effects to your, and your children’s, eyes both in the short and long-term.

But don’t worry, Eye & Eye Optics can help! Not only can we find the perfect pair to match you, or your child’s, fashion, but we can also do eye exams on-site.

Stop by our office in Lower Mills to see the sunglasses we have available. If you don’t see something in stock, we may even be able to order a different style by your favorite brand! Our customer service is unparalleled, so don’t miss your opportunity to receive personalized attention.
