What our customers say about us
I have bought glasses with Ed and Sarna twice now and each time my experience with them was perfect!

I have been searching to replace my favorite pair of Paloma Picasso sunglasses and was thrilled to find them here. I sent them photos and they had their lab do a fully custom tint to recreate them. I was amazed.
I bought a pair of 1980s Carl Zeiss aviator sunglasses and I could not be happier with my purchase, the lenses are amazing and they were delivered the next day.
