International Opticians has specialized in boutique frames and service for 47 years, without the boutique prices you’d find elsewhere. In addition, unlike most other optical stores, they have a complete surface and finish lab right on site, so turnaround time is optimized and quality-control is exemplary. Their full-service lab allows them to take charge of a customer’s needs — from grinding the Rx into lenses to cutting, edging, tinting, coating and inserting the lenses into the frame of your choice. In fact, in most cases, you can have your glasses in one hour and they provide free WiFi while you wait. They offer eye exams, an extensive selection of top designer glasses and sunglasses, including Tom Ford, Mont Blanc, Chopard and others, as well as contact lenses; 2264 Coral Way; 305.854.6191; InternationalOpticians.com.
