Product Guide


  • Eyewear


This modish eyewear boutique employs an on-site optometrist, offering both experienced eye care and stylish frames. Dr. Clinton Ho presides over the back room, where he conducts eye exams and contact-lens fittings for a roster of loyal clients and downtown walk-ins. The front area serves as a chic retail space, with yellow and dark wood floors, white walls, and glass cases packed with European frames. You won't find bold-name designers like Gucci or Prada here—instead, the shop focuses on smart construction and sleek form. Featherweight Mykita frames from Germany include screwless hinges and thin, subtle rims; Kaenon specs are fitted with patented polarized lenses; and handcrafted German brand Martin & Martin features matte tortoiseshell styles in a range of hues. The selection mixes an array of international lines, like Thakoon from Italy, Urband from France, and artsy striped models from Prodesign in Denmark. Most are made from acetate plastic for flexibility and lightness, with prices ranging from $100 to $400.
