Optical Shop

Eyeglasses have been around for over 700 years, but today more than ever, they’re about more than just improving your vision. Add a tint, a splash of color, unique shape or material, and you can completely change your look. The glasses you choose can make you look more conservative, or creative, or polished. But how do you pick the style that’s right for you?

The professional opticians at the Optical Shop in Tacoma & Gig Harbor at Pacific Northwest Eye Associates have helped generations of South Sound residents not only see their best, but look their best, too.


We carry one of the largest inventories of designer frames in the South Sound, including styles from Calvin Klein, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Kate Spade, Vera Wang, and Versace. Have an active lifestyle? You’ll find plenty of rugged titanium frames from Flexon and Silhouette to choose from. And for the younger members of the family you’ll find a wide selection of children’s frames, including Callaway Juniors for boys, and Wildflower frames for girls.


At Pacific Northwest Eye Associates, our skilled opticians are ABO and NCLE certified to insure that your contact lenses are properly fit to enhance your vision. We stock the most popular lenses available, and at prices that are competitive with any of the online retailers.

During your fitting, our contact lens specialist will teach you how to safely wear your lenses and care for them. After you’ve worn contact lenses for awhile, small changes can occur to your eyes, so it’s a good idea to stop in periodically for a quick eye check to make sure they still fit properly.
