We are so excited to introduce Lunor into the Vizio Optic family. Founded in 1991, Lunor has always strived to be a unique brand. The name Lunor came from the French “Lunette d’Or”, or golden spectacles. This name is a result of Lunor’s first collection of eyeglasses, which were made out of gold.
Founder Gernot Lindner was motivated by his collection of antique eyeglasses and cases. Some of his most popular acetate frames get their inspiration from the 1930’s and 1960’s, some of his designs even get their inspiration from the 18th and 19th century! The modern twist is that they are now made from acetate but have the original retro design.
Did you know that each pair of Lunor frames goes through up to 200 steps to create the perfect frame? The many years Lunor has spent working closely with manufacturers in southern Germany, as well as the abandonment of mass production, gives strength to the designs and ensures quality products.
Lunor eyeglasses are all made with the utmost care and specificity, down to the hinges, which are hand crafted piece by piece from a metal rod and functional rivets providing durability and style.
Our gorgeous Lunor frame selection contains so many well-made, stylish, and distinct frames that are a must-see!

This week we debuted a new brand on in our online shop, with 15 new styles available that add to our expanding collection of innovative designer eyewear from German brands. That’s right, yet another eyeglasses company out in Europe has caught our eye, and it sure keeps us entranced with its crazy silhouettes and funky color combinations. Check it out:
Wissing eyewear has some amazing styles that you’ve never seen before, like the above Wissing 2653 eyeglasses. This asymmetrical frame comes in navy blue, with a slim plastic frame, a bridge that is both straight and arched, and, oh yeah, one square lens and one circular lens. If you take a look at local fashion blogger HollyDolly’s blog, you’ll see her wearing this exact pair on her visit to Vizio last year.
In this pair of Wissing 2340 eyeglasses, have pronounced rectangular lenses separated by a center-set bridge with an arch in the middle, decorated in red, blue, yellow, orange and purple stripes. This bold frame is by no means for the fashion timid. It’s the perfect style for someone who wants to stand out from the rest and be their own person!
In the more “subdued” part of the collection is this pair of Wissing 2635 eyeglasses, wish a nice, classic silhouette colored in beautifully with various shades of purple stripes. While this is on the softer side of the brand’s offerings, it’s still a great standout piece that’ll separate you from the crowd.
Are you brave enough to wear bright specs like these? Check out the collection on our site and let us know which frames you’d be bold enough to wear in the comments!
