The eyes have it! Well, actually the expression is “The ayes have it!” but these three eyewear emporia do indeed have it.
Shopping for eyeglasses at The Optic Shop is an eye-opener; in both South Tampa and Downtown St. Pete, the selection is wide and the proprietors are unfailingly helpful, perceptive and patient (even if you’re one of those annoying people who have to try on every frame in the store). The boutique-y feeling and designer looks at Belleair Opticians are right in keeping with the casual chic of Belleair Bluffs. And if you think eyeglasses make you look brainier, you’ll love shopping at Warby Parker at the Oxford Exchange, which shares its space with OE’s smartly curated bookstore. (Warby Parker’s prices, convenience, personable staff and Home Try-On policy will make you feel pretty smart, too.)
