New glasses can be accent you've been looking for. We'd like to talk a little about some of our favorite brands.
Etnia Barcelona - Statement and color.
We waited a long time before bringing in these frames, and they are so much more than we could have ever hoped for.
The colors of the Italian acetate are something that has to be seen in person; and the color purity in the aluminium frames...
These beg to be tried on.
We are the only office in Boise to carry Etnia Barcelona; Be sure to check out their website.
*Only at Ada Vision Center
Aframes - Not only are these frames stylish, found only in our office, but with every pair, Aframes donates to save the eyesight of a child. Awesome!
Here's what they have to say:
We created Aframes to fill a gap in the current fashion and eyewear market. Since the popularity of cause driven products, one thing has been missing - quality. That is why our glasses are handmade in Istanbul from only the finest Italian acetate to ensure that each pair looks great, feels great, and stands up to daily wear. Keeping with our mission, we donate a portion of each sale to help fund the distribution of Vitamin A supplementation in developing nations.

Von Arkel - In the 18th Century, in the heart of Switzerland’s “Vallée de Joux” in the Jura region, the art of watchmaking was taking on a new dimension, driven by passionate artisans. Extreme precision, attention to detail, immeasurable quality, and a constant culture of innovation – together, all of these elements gave rise to the art of fine watchmaking.
Over two centuries later, and the Von Arkel brand has inherited from this exceptional tradition, bringing it – for the first time ever – to the world of luxury eyewear.
With their revolutionary hinge, the Von Arkel frames combine exclusive and elegant style with unrivalled technicality drawn directly from watchmaking talent.
And now, you too can enjoy this savoir-faire.
Behind their pure and timeless design, Von Arkel frames are a veritable technological marvel.
Revolutionary in the eyewear universe, the patented hinge has been entirely designed and developed in the very cradle of fine watchmaking, the “Vallée de Joux”.
It is the brain-child of Dubois-Dépraz company and the result of over two years’ research and development.
The hinge is available in two calibres: 8.0 and 9.0. True masterpieces created with absolute virtuosity.
The name is in homage to Anton Eduard Van Arkel, a twentieth-century Dutch chemist.
In 1925, together with his associate Jan Hendrik de Boer, Van Arkel found a means to produce pure zirconium industrially.
This process would subsequently be applied to the production of titanium, of which Von Arkel glasses are made today.
