Les Yeux Opticians

It all started when I went looking for a pair of cool designer frames for my son Dylan. At the time he was nine years old and fairly short-sighted. As a mum and someone who appreciates the finer things in life, I wanted him to have something cool and he certainly had his own ideas about style - to say the least.

I knew that many of our young European counterparts wore snazzy eyewear - I'd seen them. I knew how much pride and confidence it gave them. So I searched high and low but ended up hugely disappointed with what was available in the UK. Exhausted and frustrated I finally found a pair of designer frames in a catalogue.
