Line Of Sight

We have a proud and long history here in the New Haven area. There was a University before there was a country. We love taking a look back as much as we love looking forward. Did you know that the first eyeglasses available in the US (about the time Yale was founded) cost about $200? That would be equivalent to $6,000 in today’s dollars, so keep that in mind next time you look at all the great styles in eyewear we sell in the $250 to $500 range. Here is an infographic from the folks at Unity Lenses that gives us nice short history of eyeglasses and a compelling reason for all eyeglass wearers to consider the technological advances of digital lenses available today.
