Silver Lining Opticians is the leading independent eyewear destination in New York. Our offerings include a collection of vintage and contemporary frames as well as our own private line. Silver Lining Opticians employs fully licensed opticians, ready to fill prescriptions and customize lenses. We believe in craftsmanship, attention to detail and the best frames from around the world.
We focus our passion on eyewear alone. We value our relationships with our longtime clients. We track down hard to find vintage frames to help people build their collections.
When designing our own line we were inspired by the best vintage looks and the smartest contemporary hardware. We responded to the tastes of our discerning clients, and the Silver Lining Collection satisfies modernists and classicists alike.
Currently, contemporary brands we feature include Masunaga, Barton Perreira, la Eyeworks, Garrett Leight California Optical, Andy Wolf, RVS by V, and Graz Studio.
