For stellar customer service, this one takes the cake. Starting from $98, these folks will replace any of your lenses no matter where you’ve gotten them from! The products use high index aspheric lenses and each spectacle is assembled by hand. We love the wide selection, affordable prices and stylish designs. With your purchase, you also contribute to the Owndays eye camp that conducts check-ups and manufactures prescription glasses for people in developing countries. Want to look good and make a difference? You know what to do.
Owndays, multiple locations include Bugis Junction, [email protected] and Suntec City

O+ stocks frames that are positively dripping in retro geek chic. This store doesn’t manufacture lenses, so you’ll have to fit them with lenses from your trusted optician. Sure, it takes an extra step, but if there’s a pair of frames you can’t find anywhere else, we definitely recommend browsing through this brand’s extensive collection!
O+, available in multiple locations including Orchard and OUE Downtown Gallery
8. Spectacle Hut
Spectacle Hut always has us spoilt for choice. This boutique carries frames from the likes of Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Tiffany & Co. and more. Opt for a half-rimmed update to metal frames if you’re a fan of minimalist chic. Or go a little wild with a Tiffany blue spin on the classic tortoiseshell (by Tiffany & Co., of course) – who knew that could be such a fetching colour combo?
Spectacle Hut, multiple locations including Jurong Point and VivoCity
This Italian brand is best known for its painfully trendy acetate sunglasses, but the compact optical collection ticks all the boxes for fashion-forward eyewear too. Metal framed aviators, round tortoiseshell frames, black angular wayfarers… all the essential designs favoured by your favourite fashionistas.
