The Optics

Located in the heart of Coral Gables, the passion for eyewear gets noticed. It began over 15 years ago, when Lisa decided to dedicate her life to the practice of Opticianry. After many years and hard work, she decided to open her own space and The Eyeglass Place was born in 2002.

Our mission is to offer you something different and unique from any part of the world.  Our trendsetting hall of frames is inspired in different cities of Europe and is changing constantly.

Our philosophy, eyeglasses should be your best accessory, one that you need every day so it’s time to give them the importance they deserve

After 10 years of Managerial Experience at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute (The Number #1 Eye Hospital in the U.S.) and inspired from her frequent trips to Europe, Lisa decided on establishing The Eyeglass Place™ located at 430 S. Dixie Highway, where it’s been since 2002.

Always interested in fashion, Lisa adjusts her collection seasonally to ensure that her clients always have something new to wear. She strives daily to emphasize the role of eyewear as your most important fashion accesory.
