Come Christmas Day, unwrapping a locally purchased package feels extra special and that’s because it is.

Visualeyes offers so much more than the average eyewear shop. When you walk inside, it’s an experience. The staff here travels the world to find the styles they stock. If someone on your wish list needs a new pair, think local first. Choosing can be challenging. Here’s a guide to help you get started.

1. Branded Collection

Jewelry tells a story, and this one is very personal. The jewelry is made by survivors of human trafficking to help them rebuild their lives. The numbers on the jewelry represent the actual numbers that were branded on their bodies when they were kidnapped. Wear the story, share the story, change the story. A purchase from the Branded Collection is meaningful for many. You’ll find this collection at the Elmwood location.

Think futuristic vintage. Inspired by vintage and updated with an avant-gardist touch, that’s exactly what’s happening here. These sunglasses are all flat fronted, giving a futuristic twist to retro-inspired shapes. The flat mirrored lenses are encased in a peek-a-boo metal frame defining true femininity. This is a need not a want.

So many choices. If you need help deciding, stop by one of the two locations and ask for a rec. If you think the special someone on your shopping list would prefer to pick their pair, a gift card is the perfect gift!
