Frames : Start turning heads — for all the right reasons.

Faces come in different shapes and sizes. That’s why choosing the right eyeglass frame for your face – and your personality – may initially seem daunting. It’s good to know that our handpicked opticians are trained to help you choose a frame that’s right for you. From petite to extra-large – and everything in between – we have an amazing selection of ready-to-wear and custom, made-to-measure frames to complement your face and work with your prescription.

We select our frame collections with you in mind, and many of our eyewear collections are only available at Arlington Optical. By the way, we’re also the only Central Ohio retailer that can make Chemistrie magnetic Sunclips in our in-house lab.
