DRESDEN: Eyewear and Eyecare
Personally I don't wear prescription glasses (the do also sell sunglasses), but I do know many people who do. I've seen people; lose their glasses, break the arms of their glasses, express their style with their glasses, spend a lot of money on glasses, and I've seen people go without wearing glasses because they can't afford to pay for said glasses. So I kind of know what it's all about.
I feel like Dresden is here for all those people. Dresden provide a service and product that is so practical, affordable, accessible, thoughtful, high quality and colourful.
Their glasses come in a wide range of colours, with interchangeable arms (you get an unlimited supply of pins (for free) with your purchase of glasses), the glasses are fully recyclable and are all made in Australia. So you don't have to feel bad when you have to replace them. They also have a range that is created using milk bottle lids and plastic rubbish that has washed up on Byron Bays shores.
The staff are fully knowledgeable and can help you in store with all your optical needs. I actually called the store to check up on some details and after talking to a staff member I am thinking about going in for a full eye exam ( you can get one for $71), because they don't just check your vision but the full health of your eyes. And with the amount of screen time I'm giving them these days I think they probably deserve that.
