Think back to when you were just a child. Did you mom or dad wear glasses? Were they the round, slightly tinted pair that seemed to span from the top of her eyebrows to the tip of her nose? Did your dad have a pair that he kept together with scotch tape? Well, chances are, they may have gotten them from Elegant Eyes. Maybe you purchase your eyewear there now. But little did you know, Elegant Eyes is New Jersey’s largest minority owned, full service optical retailer with three major locations including Newark, East Orange and Plainﬁeld. And this December, the company approaches its 25th year services the community’s visual health care (and personal style) needs. Now, in its 3rd generation, Elegant Eyes’ mission is to continue to provide upscale quality eyewear at affordable prices.
I stopped by the HQ location in Newark and was in awe of the selection and variety of eyewear they carry on display. With a range of styles from brands including Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Chanel, Gucci, Mont Blanc, Ray Ban, Tom Ford, Tory Burch and more, it is practically impossible not to find a pair (or a few pair) that you’ll absolutely love. For those too busy—or too trendy—to wait, the Elegant Eyes’ team delivers an all-inclusive treatment, which includes exam appointment scheduling with their on-staff optometrist, presentation of the latest eyewear trends and fashions, frame fitting and adjusting, lens selection, follow-ups and delivery.
