Spotlight on Lindberg Custom Rimless Lenses

Part of the excitement of choosing LINDBERG eyeglasses is the freedom of personalization. The designer allows you to join in on the creative process and select your own colors, bridge size and temple style. In LINDBERG’s rimless collection, you can even customize your own lens shape.

Rimless eyewear is a good option for those who need corrective lenses but do not want to completely change their appearance. Luckily, LINDBERG gives you the control to decide exactly how you want your glasses to look.

The Spirit and Air Titanium styles come in many different lens shapes that can be uniquely crafted to suit your optical and aesthetic needs. From classic round lenses and the typical rectangular or oval shapes to funkier styles like the cat-eye and aviator, you can select from more than 150 different looks.

Because the frames are rimless, the temples are connected directly to the lenses. Without a rim to fill, lenses can be as large or small as you like. When you visit us at Vizio Optic, we are happy to guide you on finding the best styles that will flatter your face and enhance your features.

For those who need sun protection, LINDBERG also offers clip-on polarized lenses in brown and gray. This accessory, made with a lightweight titanium rim, is specially made to fit your LINDBERG eyeglasses perfectly. They are made at our lab, where our technicians have been specially trained by the eyewear company to provide you with the perfect pair of LINDBERG glasses.

Join us on October 22 for a special LINDBERG trunk show, where we will be featuring plenty of the company’s rimless designs. After we help you choose your personalized glasses, please enjoy $100 off your same-day prescription purchase. Customers will also be entered to win a free frame. We hope to see you there!

LINDBERG Rimless Eyeglasses Prove Less is More

LINDBERG Spirit Titanium 2112

With so many different styles of eyeglasses out there, it can be overwhelming to choose the one that suits your tastes. For those who prefer a minimalist approach to eyewear, LINDBERG offers its award-winning collection of rimless glasses that are modern, smart and highly customizable.

There are plenty of reasons to opt for rimless eyeglasses . Many people who need glasses in adulthood are not used to wearing them, so they want a style that won’t drastically change their look. LINDBERG’s iconic rimless glasses are less obvious than full-rim and acetate frames, and they are also much lighter thanks to the company’s historic AIR Titanium frame.

Titanium is lightweight, strong and flexible, which means less pressure on your nose and ears so you aren’t perpetually aware of the glasses’ existence. LINDBERG frames weigh as little as 1.9g. The designer also prides itself on its innovative design, for which LINDBERG has won 47 prestigious awards, as well as the Danish Royal Warrant of Appointment. Using a spring hinge in lieu of screws, you’ll never run the risk of the glasses loosening or coming apart.

While there is certainly less to choose from when it comes to rim shade and pattern, those who want a little pop of color can opt for customized temples. The arm pieces come in an array of lively colors and in a variety of cool and unique designs, from simple clean lines to artistic plates and fun patterns.

LINDBERG eyewear also offers customized bridges and lens shapes so that you are able to design the perfect pair of glasses that will flatter your face and enhance your look. Join the ranks of the Danish Royal Family, as well as international celebrities like Robert De Niro, Tyra Banks and Roberto Cavalli, with a pair of LINDBERG eyeglasses from Vizio Optic .

Don’t miss out on our LINDBERG Trunk Show , taking place at our store in Brookline, MA on October 22.

Recap: The Alain Mikli Trunk Show

Update from Vizio Optic:  We no longer carry the Mikli par Mikli or Alain Mikli brands.  Please browse our currently available designer brands and call, chat or email us for personalized assistance. We are an authorized dealer of authentic European and US brands, shipping world-wide!

Thank you from all of us at Vizio Optic!


We had such a great time at the Alain Mikli Trunk Show this past weekend. Stylish men and women from all around the Boston area came to visit us to discover the French designer’s new MATT Collection.

From full acetate and titanium frames to half-rim styles and fabulous Alain Mikli sunglasses, there were plenty of styles to choose from. Mikli’s entire collection is handmade, unique and outfitted with his patented chaam hinge, which uses a buckle-and-hook design that keeps the temples’ screws from loosening.

Those who visited us this weekend got to try out a number of looks in the MATT Collection.

Alain Mikli Sunglasses
One of the first things you may notice is the appearance of the frames. The outside surface has a more matte texture than the inner surface, which has a polished, silky finish for the ultimate comfort.

You may also notice the interesting patterns of the colored frames. From brown and gold to red and turquoise, each style is uniquely patterned. Colored petals are layered with mother of pearl, which gives Alain Mikli eyeglasses a beautiful depth and captures light at every angle. The designer even puts the luminescent twist on traditional tortoiseshell frames, giving you the opportunity to wear a modern version of a time-honored classic.

Alain Mikli Eyewear
Alain Mikli eyewear is always limited edition, as the designer only makes a certain number per style. He crafts every pair by hand, making each frame exclusive and special.

Come on in and check out the chic new MATT Collection today before it’s all gone!

We hope you consider visiting us at Vizio for our next event  on October 22, when we’ll be highlighting Linberg’s latest collection. Remember that at each trunk show, we offer $100 off with each prescription purchase, and each customer is entered to win a free pair of frames. Congratulations to this month’s winner, Rebecca S.!
