LAB & PRESCRIPTION LENSES

With our catalog of over 200 frames regularly celebrated in the likes of Vogue, GQ and Wallpaper, it’s nice to remember that Black Eyewear originated from our independent optical practice in St Albans, just outside of London (UK). 

For more than 40 years, our Lab Team’s focus and passion has been to make sure that you’ll be seeing the world with the best possible vision. 
Now you can order high quality prescription glasses and sunglasses online.

COVID-19 RESPONSE: Our Shops are temporarily closed and Eye-Tests are suspended due to the Covid-19 outbreak in the UK.

Our Lab is currently operating with reduced staff to help minimise community spread. We are still able to cater for online and phone orders and we have a qualified dispensing optician on standby who will be glad to assist you and answer any questions.
Get in touch on 01727 761048 or e-mail us at hello@blackeyewear.com.

For existing customers needing replacement glasses, we have your prescription on file, so just get in touch at hello@blackeyewear.com.
