Make a statement without saying a word...

Selecting the proper frames for your face, prescription and lifestyle can be overwhelming in a traditional optical shop. Our licensed opticians and seasoned frame stylists will help you select the best frame for your needs with the look that you want. 

Don't be fooled by our clean and minimalistic look; we have hundreds of frames for you to chose from.  We take a personalized approach and work with you through the entire process.

We don't have a doctor on staff so you simply bring us your prescription and we'll do the rest.   You can also email or fax us your prescription and we'll save a copy for when you're ready.   Click here to email your RX.

 

We are "out of network" for most insurance companies so we can help you with any paperwork that you need to submit.  The decision not to work with insurance was an intentional one.  This allows us to provide you the latest technology in lenses and the highest quality frames on the market.  

 
 

"it's not how you feel, it's how you look and you look marvelous"

It IS about how you look, but it's also about how you see...

All of the frames that we carry are produced and designed by independent eyewear companies.  What this means is that the designers who design our products don't design handbags, cars, jeans, shoes, hats or anything else- they know optical and they know fashion and using the highest quality materials available, they create stunning pieces of fashion that are also function.  

Your glasses are a medical device and while that should be remembered when purchasing them, they don't need to look like one.

Lens technology is constantly evolving and it's our job to stay on top of this.  We work with the best labs in the country to ensure that you're in the best possible lens for you.  

 

Depending on your lifestyle, you may consider more than one pair of glasses.  We offer specialized lenses such as:

  • Computer lenes

  • Golf lenses

  • Prescription Ski or SCUBA goggles

  • Kids prescripton sports goggles

  • Cycling glasses

  • and more

For years Jessica & Jed (the owners) tried to convince Vedra to move to RI from CT to work at Opt.  Finally in 2018 she gave in and the ocean state hasn't been the same since!  With over 20 years of experience, Vedra will make sure that not only will you see great, but look amazing too.
