Black Eyewear designer Robert Roope spent 50 years as an optician, serving clients as diverse as Stanley Kubrick before turning his hand to design.
Robert has now trained an AI to help you find the perfect frame, that is both a sound geometric fit and a design that really suits you.
Adjustments & repairs
Black Eyewear offers a Complimentary Adjustment Service to all customers, no appointment required.
We believe that regular maintenance is the key to ensure that your frame will continue to fit you comfortably and guarantee good vision.
Our St Albans Lab is able to deliver a 1h speedy glazing service for emergencies and Same-day glazing on most single vision prescriptions.
For existing customers needing replacement glasses, we have your prescription on file, so just get in touch at email@example.com.
Frame dying & tinting
In our St Albans Lab we can develop bespoke dip-dyed frames in a variety of multi-coloured options to suit our customer’s requirements.
We combine traditional dyeing techniques and new tinting processes to create light shift of colour on both shiny and matt Clear Crystal frames.
DIP-DYE is available as bespoke service for all BLACK EYEWEAR frames in Clear Crystal .
Eyewear should beautifully and architecturally frame the structure of the face. “Timeless style in eyewear is styling that embraces the fundamental structures of the face; it creates resonance and harmony with our face structure." (Robert Roope)
Visit one of our shops and speak to one of our highly-trained staff members to find the perfect frame for you.
For advice from founder and designer Robert Roope, please visit our Goodge Street shop on Wednesday and Thursdays from 10.30am.
We recommend ringing in advance to ensure availability.
We are always happy to welcome prescriptions from other opticians.
Alternatively, we can offer appointment-based eye tests in our St Albans store.
Each eye test will last approximatively 30 minutes, one of our highly qualified optometrists will carry out a comprehensive
examination to check your eye health and determine your up-to-date prescription.
