Head to Eyes on Main in Santa Monica for that Perfect Pair of Shades

Owning a great pair of shades is a must-have whEyesonMan-AnneetValentinen living in L.A. and fashion and function go hand in hand. That special pair of sunglasses can add some Hollywood flair, or be the perfect accent to any outfit.

Located on one of the hippest streets in Santa Monica, there is no way Eyes on Main could have lasted 28 years if it didn't keep up with all the latest styles.

Unlike most chain optical shops, Eyes on Main prides themselves on offering each costumer personal attention..."We like to spend individual time with each of our customers to help them find the best frame that is right for them and best for their prescription needs," said owner Susan Sykes.

Offering handmade frames from France, London, Denmark, Italy and more, designers include Lindberg, Anne et Valentin, Caroline Abram, Cutler and Gross and Vuarnet. In addition to featuring unique sunglasses, custom tinting is available for any frame including prescriptions.

EYESonMain-sunglassesSykes has been in the optical business most of her life and is constantly on the lookout for cutting edge designs. "We absolutely LOVE 'Anne et Valentin' and 'Cutler and Gross.' Both brands have a wide variety of unique styles and colors. They both have frames for sunglasses and clear prescription and each frame is very special and different from what you would normally see at your everyday optical shop. But everything we carry is very well made and the best of the best."

Eyes on Main is located at 3101 Main Street, Santa Monica, 90405; (310) 399-3302; http://www.eyesonmain.net
