MEGA VENDOR TRUNK SHOW EXPO
Raise Your Glasses provides a truly unique opportunity for attendees to see the ENTIRE frame collections from each of our vendors. Trunk shows are usually held with one specific vendor in a single optometric practice, however we take this experience to the next level by producing a mega shopping experience which brings a multitude of vendors together in one place.
There will be thousands of frames to view, try on and purchase. This year’s vendors include Gold & Wood Paris, Tom Davies London, Face a Face Paris, Anne et Valentin Paris, ic! berlin Germany, l.a.eyeworks USA, Claire Goldsmith London, Oliver Goldsmith London, Traction Productions Paris, Booth & Bruce England, Vinylize Budapest, Francis Klein Paris, Matsuda Japan and Kaenon Polarized. Lens vendors Shamir Optical, Hoya Visison and Carl Zeiss Vision will be on hand to explain the high-definition digital lens technology that Urban Optiks utilizes.
REMODEL REVEAL AND OPEN HOUSE
In an effort to always improve your experience at Urban Optiks, we are in the process of updating and remodeling our vintage-industrial inspired retail area to provide an enhanced eclectic backdrop for our unique collection eyewear from around the world. In our typical style, we have foraged locally-sourced furnishings, finishes and display elements to compliment the style and unique atmosphere you have become accustomed to at Urban Optiks.
Renovations include additional merchandising locations to present even more product and framelines, a dedicated optician servicing counter to better assist you with the selection of frames and dispensing, new seating options in our reception and showroom space, eclectic and innovative use of “reclaimed” furnishings and fixtures, vivid LED displays, exciting graphic elements, and so many more.
Be the first to experience the complete remodel at Raise Your Glasses as we “open” our house and invite you to see what “excellence in eyecare” looks like right here in San Diego.
DONATE AND RECYCLE YOUR OLD PRESCRIPTION & NON-PRESCRIPTION EYEWEAR
Do you have a pair of old glasses lying around collecting dust? This year we are hosting a collection drive for The Lion’s Optometric Vision Clinic (LOVC) right here in San Diego and would love for you to donate them! Simply bring your no-longer-used eyewear to Raise Your Glasses and drop them into our donation boxes.
The LOVC is a San Diego non-profit, providing eye care for those who are otherwise unable to obtain assistance through private insurance, welfare, or other social service agencies. It was created in 1963 as a service project, with the support of the local San Diego County Lions Clubs and has provided eyeglasses to over 10,000 individuals. It has been the tireless effort and dedication of volunteers from the Lions Club and the San Diego County Optometric Society that have made this a successful project.
