Designer Eyewear Q & A

What is designer eyewear?

Designer eyewear includes eyeglass frames made by fashion designers. Eye Q Optique is a full-service optometry practice that offers a wide range of eyewear options to fit any budget.


Designer frames by brand from well-known designers like Gucci, Prada, Valentino and many many more.

What are the styles of designer eyewear?

Eye Q Optique offers a number of designer eyewear styles to fit your look. Designer eyewear styles include:

Full rim

Full rim eyeglass frames surround the entire corrective lens. This type of frame can make a statement.


Semi-rimless frames leave part of the lens exposed, making the eyeglasses less noticeable.


Rimless eyewear has no frame around the lens, making them nearly invisible.

Drill Mounts

A full rimless frame, also called a “drill mount” features temples and a bridge that are mounted directly into the lenses. The bridge and the temples can be made from metal, or a hybrid of metal and plastic.


Eye Q Optique offers designer sunglasses to correct vision and protect your eyes from the sun.


The designer eyewear at Eye Q Optique includes frames made from various materials, such as titanium, plastic, metal, aluminum, carbon fiber or wood to name a few.

What designer eyewear is best for me?

The designer eyewear best for you depends on many factors. These factors include:


  • Eyeglass prescription
  • Your lifestyle
  • Face shape
  • Fashion style
  • Eyewear purpose (e.g., protection, vision, fashion)


The opticians at Eye Q Optique can help you find the perfect pair of designer eyewear. They can narrow down your search based on your budget, style, and vision needs. Then, they will work with you as you try on different pairs of eyewear so you can select the eyeglasses that fit your look.


The team also helps you select the right material for your frames. For example, titanium frames are strong, lightweight, and hypoallergenic. Plastic frames are the most popular because they come in an array of colors and styles.
