I've been wanting a new pair of glasses forever, so I decided to stop by Eyes by Design in Toronto by Don Mills and I just wanted to share my experience with you guys, for those who are looking for a new pair of glasses like I was. And theres something special at the end for my Toronto readers, so click read more to read the story!
I came in on Friday and when I walked in to the store, I was very impressed with how gorgeous the interior was. Very modern and clean, you can't miss the upscale vibe of the boutique. I was greeted as soon as I came in, everyone was so friendly! It wasn't like those boutiques where you walk in and the secretary looks up at you from behind their screen and looks back down. They asked me how I was, what I was looking for, and they were all very sweet. After a moment Dr. Ratnasingam came out to greet me himself.
One thing that really stood out to me about this boutique is how personal everything was - and that's totally in a good way. Each eyewear piece they carry is hand selected by their team so they don't just receive a huge shipment of random glasses, but they have select styles which definitely feels more exclusive. They really wanted to make sure that I got exactly what I wanted, so when I tried on almost every frame (because I'm so indecisive and picky haha) they were really nice about it and seemed to not mind at all, regardless of the mess I made. They even gave me a bit of insight about the different kinds of lenses and told me things about eye care that I didn't know, simply because no one had ever told me before so these guys not only provide great, personalized customer experience but they also taught me a couple of things before I left!
I ended up picking a pair of Gucci frames that I absolutely LOVE (they carry other brands like Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Cavalli, Rayban, Ferragamo, and this exclusive Denmark brand that I can't remember). Here are more photos!
Oh my god and I have to share this. How cute is the lens cleaner?!?! I can't deal with how cute it is. Really stands out from the other boring ones I've gotten from other places, literally everything about this place is so fashionable.
Okay, now for that little something special! I've teamed up with Eyes by Design to give all my followers an exclusive 10% discount off all their designer frames as well as free shipping within Canada if you don't live in Toronto. If you do stop by the boutique, just mention me to them and they'll know what you're talking about and give you the discount. If you don't, definitely send them an email and they'll help you find a pair and you can get free shipping for your frames! Delivered right to your door.
Overall I had a fantastic experience with Eyes by Design, if you're ever in the area you should definitely stop by and say hi!
