Scout Notes: When you're in the market for a new pair of glasses, your vision quest can take one ...When you're in the market for a new pair of glasses, your vision quest can take one of two paths. You can go in and out of the city's various optical boutiques, trying on a few frames from each of their limited collections, or you can head directly to HMY Vision. This family-run outlet has nearly double the inventory of their local competitors, with nearly 3,000 frames on display, representing styles from over 65 top designers. It's literally a one-stop shop for all things vision-related: there are eye exams on site, and once you have a prescription, HMY's friendly, hands-on staff will help you navigate the massive array of options.
My favorite thing about having so many frames on hand to choose from is that you can do as many immediate style comparisons as you please. Square or round? Fendi or Armani? You can have them all on the counter in front of you while you decide; there’s no need to remember what that pair from the store 25 blocks away looked like when you had them on. Even better, if the selection process gets overwhelming, HMY’s team of trained professionals is on hand to offer seriously personalized service. They’ll talk you through the way the various shapes match your face, wardrobe, and lifestyle, and make sure you walk away with the glasses you were always meant to wear.
