Customer Reviews
Founded by a local Ophthalmologist over 20 years ago, GlassesEtc. has served Manhattan's most prominent clientele with boutique locations inside the offices of some of New York City's finest eye doctors. Our goal was to provide a greater selection of designer frames for our local Upper East Side clientele.

As our customer base expanded, we realized we needed a more convenient way to showcase all our designer frames. As one of the original pioneers of online prescription eyewear ordering; our mission is, and always has been, to provide convenience, style, and affordability. Our boutique like approach to servicing clients has expanded, and we now service customers all over the world.

GlassesEtc. offers the finest in designer eyewear and prescription lenses. We distinguish ourselves from the competition by selling only the highest quality frames and prescription lenses coupled with outstanding customer service.
