Framing Our Story

We place a lot of trust in the things we frame, from pictures that capture special moments to eyeglasses that express our unique sense of style. It’s important that the things we frame come from someone you can trust. That’s why our frames are freshly designed and curated by eye care professionals, and only sold by local, independent eyeglass shops.

We are Vernon Gantry, born in Long Island City, NYC, scattered across the hearts of the greatest communities around the country. We stay true to our roots. We embrace the areas in which we live in. We seek inspiration from the colorful personalities that fill our streets. We design our frames to always reflect the neighborhoods in which we thrive.

Our mission is to change the way eyeglasses are designed and sold by bringing back a personal connection. We believe you should always feel confident knowing that your glasses are right for your eyes and your style. And we believe all of this should come from a person you can trust: your local eye care professional.

Our frames are made of high quality cellulose acetate and 3-5 barrel hinges. We work directly with factories to cut out the middle men. We don’t license designers or brand names, have sales people, or elaborate advertising. We pass those savings on to our customers. It’s eyewear the way it should be, with the savings of online pricing and the benefits of buying in store.
