FLEX dollars here!

What are "Flex Dollars" you ask? Well, many employers offer Flex Spending accounts for you to use on all things medical. Including glasses!! You don't need to use it in conjunction with your insurance and you aren't limited to using it on medically necessary or "junky, boring" frames. Eye Candy will happily help you select a fine pair of glasses or sunglasses and take your Flex Spending Dollars! In most cases Flex Dollars run out at the end of the year and re-fill at the beginning of each year, so you better put your money to good use before the years end! This gives you three weeks to "use them or lose them"!
Have questions or need to schedule a private consultation? Email me at and I can help you find a new look to ring in the new year!

"SunSpecs" Sunglasses have arrived...

Think 20th Century icons. Grace Kelly, Michael Caine, Audrey Hepburn, John Lennon. Think iconic style makers. Givenchy, Dior, Vidal Sassoon. Think iconic films of the Fifties and Sixties. The Ipcress File, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Two for the Road. They’ve all got one thing in common:

Oliver Goldsmith.

Now available at Eye Candy, Oliver Goldsmith is much more than just Sunglasses, they are SunSpecs! Set out to transform the way that glasses were both designed and made, Oliver Goldsmith designed glasses that were made to be sunglasses. Large, over sized and totally Hollywood; and at Eye Candy we can even put your prescription in them. Giving the result of high-glam that are also highly functional.

Oliver Goldsmith were the first to see glasses as fashion accessories; the first to make SunSpecs; the first to make ‘winter sunglasses’ and the first to work alongside fashion houses to create one-off pieces for the catwalks.

Stop in Eye Candy and see what Vogue magazine rants and raves about. Get fitted and walk with pure style, SunSpec style.

100% boredom-free...

In a time where most of the "trendy" people are fashion victims, wearing clothes, accessories and eyewear "designed" by a few big labels, it is almost impossible to find real originality and independence.

The company grotesque frame was founded to change that. Each style is a statement for uniqueness and originality. You can find the models only in the best optical shops worldwide.
Eye Candy being one of them! Eye Candy is proud to introduce Grotesque Frame! Hand made in Germany, grotesque frame is a combination of nice details, shiny colours and great workmanship for everybody that wants to underline his personality. Made from the finest materials, all models are made in small quantities, for individuals, not for the masses.

Why has the name "grotesque frame" been chosen? "We wanted to have a name that stands out of the mudd of boring names in the eyewear business. "grotesque" means different, funny, bizarre, original, interesting. If you don't see the sense of the word, you don't have any humour at all" say the founders.

Stop in Eye Candy or give us a call at 412-408-3415 and experience these one of a kind frames!
