We offer hundreds of eyeglass frames to choose from, including major brands, designer frames from all over the world, and frames under $100. We also offer a large selection of specialty eyewear for swimming, cycling, scuba diving, racquet sports, and other activities.

We provide the highest quality lenses (including Carl Zeiss, Hoya, Essilor) and control quality and consistency in our own in-house laboratory. Contact lenses are available at MIT Medical's Eye Service (Optometry/Ophthalmology).
