Eyes on Trade

When you are looking for eyewear, you want something that fits your unique style. The frames you choose should be a part of who you are and express your style. But you don’t always want to wear the same things. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have options for your daily eyewear that match your changing style? At Eyes on Trade, they are here to provide you with that opportunity.

Eyes on Trade opened its doors in downtown Winston-Salem about a year ago. This full-scale optometry practice was opened with a vision of providing clients with the quality services they expect and a simple pricing structure that makes multiple frame purchases possible. They want to provide unique options that allow clients to express themselves at a price point that promotes building an eyewear “wardrobe.”

Being part of the downtown Winston Salem community was an intentional decision. Trade Street has always been a hub of the Winston Salem Arts District and is an important part of a growing and progressive Winston-Salem. Eyes on Trade enjoys being a part of this downtown family and feels there is no better place for them to offer their well-curated collection of eyewear. They feel that eyeglasses are, after all, Art for your Eyes.

The staff at Eyes on Trade are ready to provide you with a unique experience in more ways than one. Dr. Marium Warsi-Zehri O.D., Optician and Practice Manager Maggie Helms and Spectacle Specialists Stacia Hamilton and Jamie-Leigh Livengood are available to provide full-scale optometry services with the feel of a high-end boutique practice. They use the latest technology in a mid-century modern designed space that feels comfortable and unique. They also take great care to listen to your needs. Limiting themselves to only two eye exams per hour, nearly half the industry-standard, allows clients more one-on-one time with Dr. Warsi-Zehri so they can comfortably discuss their treatment needs and vision concerns.

Another thing that makes Eyes on Trade so unique is their simple pricing structure. The frame shop provides two different price points for you to choose from. The Essentials Collection is $150, and The Luxe Collection is $250. A purchase in either collection includes thin and light single-vision lenses, anti-reflective coating, scratch protection, a one-year warranty, and a case and cleaning cloth. Both collections come from independent eyewear companies. You won’t find name brands, but you will find quality frames made by mom and pop shops that care about the product they are making. The companies they carry come from all around Europe and Asia, as well as a few choices from New York. The difference between the two collections available is small. It truly is a solid collection on both sides of the shop. You will find unique, well-made products throughout both collections, but the Luxe Collection offers just a little bit more. In this collection, you will find more handmade, exclusive options. This is also where you will find options with a funkier design aesthetic. You will find that all the frames at Eyes on Trade are unique from a technical design perspective or from a fashion perspective. These frames stand out.

One pair of glasses doesn’t fit all of your style needs, but having more than one pair can be very expensive. When you come into Eyes on Trade, you know what you are going to spend when you walk through the door and the price point gives you the option to consider more than one choice. Your eyewear wardrobe is important to them. That is why they provide their clients with a simple and affordable pricing structure and impressive frame selection. That makes it easy to build an eyewear collection for the cost of what you may have previously paid for one pair of glasses.

If you are ready to build your eyewear wardrobe, make an appointment at Eyes On Trade today. They are located at 604 Trade St NW in Winston-Salem.
