About Us


Design Eyewear is an independent South Australian owned optometry practice established in the Adelaide CBD in 1994. From its inception, the aim of the business was to offer superior services and products at competitive prices.

We pride ourselves on maintaining a leading edge in all aspects of the optical experience — from the consulting room through to the fashion retailing end of the business. And we try to keep this all within the boutique environment of the store at a personal level, aiming to run on time, and to your budget.

Any lens in Australia
As a proudly independent optometrist, we’re able to source for our patrons any lens material or design available in this country — unlike our corporate counterparts. So after your visit with our optometrist, there will be a Best Lens Choice recommended for your new glasses.

So what’s your style?
We also seek to provide a range of spectacle frames not seen anywhere else, giving you the chance to choose something outstanding and special, to highlight or to blend, to complement an established look, or to create something funky and new to build around. Functional, face art, iconic or dull — it all comes down to the choice of frame. But at Design Eyewear, we don’t do dull very often…
