As you can no doubt guess once word got out on the street that I was opening my own optical store in Watertown, eyeglass and sunglass companies from around the world were calling and emailing me for the opportunity to be a part of this exciting new store. Having a limited budget it was heartbreaking to have to say no, but I was able to finally say yes to some of the finest eyewear companies anywhere, who will be showcasing their latest designs at EyeCrave Optics. Take a look at some of the wonderful products we will be featuring and stop in soon to try them on for yourself.

Götti eyeglasses are designed in Switzerland and delivered to specialty shops in more than 30 countries. A majority of the 20 employees at headquarters in Wädenswil are trained opticians. Götti does not produce a mass product that can be found on every corner, but is only available in selected specialty shops. These are in shops which, as is the brand itself, are oriented towards exclusive, high-quality products. Therefore, it is only logical that the opticians who choose Götti for their product range are among the best in their respective cities. Out of over 20,000 optical shops in America, only a few hundred have been chosen to carry Götti , including EyeCrave Optics. The collection is produced by leading manufacturers in Germany, Austria and Japan. The ideal production is guaranteed by many years of partnership
FEB31st speaks to all those who look for the essence of things, who are able to see reality with an intense and personal look, who wish to look at the beauty of the things around them. A philosophy that draws its strength and inspiration from its roots, its past, its respect for the people and the resources of our planet to look at a future even closer to their dreams and values. For this reason, FEB31st has selected wood, a material that is precious and symbolic, sensual and rich in history, elegant and natural, ancient and modern, to be the interpreter of its utopia, through innovative glasses in which color is one of the main features, which expresses a contemporary sensitiveness that seeks uniqueness in sobriety and marries past and future, in a synthesis of lightness, simplicity and sustainability.
Founded in 1967 by Mitsuhiro Matsuda in Tokyo, the Matsuda Brand quickly became one of the most celebrated Japanese fashion houses. The creations are famous for looking to the past for Inspiration, while staying current, and of the moment. In a word: Timeless. All of our eyewear is painstakingly crafted by hand in the artisinal eyewear workshops of Japan, and each Matsuda creation represents over 45 years of design history and heritage. Only the finest materials, including celluloid acetate, titanium, sterling silver, 18K solid gold, and 22.5K gold plating are used in each creation.
OVVO Optics has been present in the U.S. since March 2011. Its history, however, goes back to Europe of the Cold War era. That’s when a group of scientists, who were working on developing a material for spacecraft and military use, fused surgical steel and titanium, achieving an exceptionally light, durable and flexible material that is also hypoallergenic. Inspired by its remarkable qualities, in 1980 the engineers of the company started using this unique composite to make frames for glasses. They are handmade, but manufactured with outstanding precision, mastered by over 30 years of experience. Entirely produced in Germany and Poland, OVVO frames bring exquisite European style and unmatched quality. Weighing barely 0.6 ounces OVVO frames offer unparalleled comfort and unfailing durability. Tests showed that stretched flat frames can hold up to 90 pounds without breaking or wrecking.
Comfort and design are the strong points of Etnia Barcelona glasses. Their exhaustive knowledge of facial features is transferred to each piece, thereby producing some of the most comfortable eyewear in the world. Etnia designs and make our own eyewear, controlling the entire process, from the design of the first drawing to the production of all the components: glasses that are comfortable, that feel good on any face, with the bridge adapted to facial features, with ergonomic temple tips… they like to make and wear good products. Working with the best strategic partners for each piece of a pair of eyeglasses provides Etnia with the most technologically advanced resources: from the highest quality Barberini lens to the design of an intelligent hinge mechanism co-produced with Comotec.
It’s not every day that the choices you make can immediately change someone’s life. For every 141 Eyewear purchase, we give a new pair of prescription glasses to a person in need. No portions of proceeds. No percentages. You buy, we give. 141. 153 million people cannot see simply because they do not have access to corrective eyewear and/or cannot afford proper vision care. We have seen first hand what it is like for many of these children and adults to live without glasses. But when a child receives a pair of glasses, suddenly the blackboard becomes clear. Schoolwork gets better. Participation in extracurricular activities gets better. Life gets better. For adults, finding work is easier. Books and newspapers become readable. Faces of loved ones become recognizable. The ability to commute gets better. Life gets better.
