Describe your experience finding glasses in the past. What was your experience at Vision by Design?

I’ve struggled finding frames for my narrow face in the past. I usually end up being shown children’s frames, but I prefer the styles of the adult frames over the kids’. I loved when your opticians took the time to guide me in the process of choosing frames. I’m really happy with my new frames. I’ve gotten lots of positive feedback and they are very comfortable.

Describe your personal style:

Conservative but I have a fun side too

What do you look for in a pair of glasses?

Subtle with a standout feature, like colour or shape. Not too out there but still something fun

They really complete my look each day

How many pairs of glasses/sunglasses do you own?

One pair of glasses and one pair of sunglasses

What is your biggest fashion pet peeve?

When women don’t leave anything to the imagination

Heidi

Describe your experience finding glasses in the past. What was your experience at Vision by Design?

I’ve struggle finding frames that fit and are light enough to be comfortable for daily use. I’ve been disappointed with the selection that other places have given me in the past, but when I came to Vision by Design’s eyewear makeover event I had so many frames to choose from.

If I had 10 pairs, I would match each outfit to my glasses, but since I wear progressives I just have my one pair that I really like that they go with many things in my wardrobe

Having clothing that has naturally sourced fabrics is important to me. It can make it harder to follow trends, but I would describe my style as more conservative

Yolan

Describe your experience finding glasses in the past. What was your experience at Vision by Design?

I’ve often left opticals disappointed because so many of the glasses are too mainstream. They seem to sell the same brands and the same shapes/styles at most place. I was really excited about the Lafont trunk show because there were so many unique frames to choose from that suit my style.

I like some of the vintage inspired styles that are trendy right now

They’re more of an accessory to me
