SEE, Madison, WI

If you’re a fan of exclusive products and you are an eyeglass wearer, SEE is a store you must visit. Richard Golden invented the original SEE concept of creating a proprietary exclusive brand of almost-custom frames and eyewear. What do we mean by almost-custom? Sometimes there are only one or two pairs of a specific frame in a specific color available in-store. Wearing SEE eyewear will differentiate you from the crowd. 

Bronze Optical, Milwaukee, WI

The staff at Bronze Optical hope to provide their customers with eyeglasses that can show off a little bit of personality. Bronze Quinton is the man behind the curtain at this optical store. He offers eye-exam services, lenses, frames, and lens maintenance.   

Specs Appeal, Glendale, WI

Stan Kaminski began his life of optometry at the ripe old age of 12. Now he has more than 40 years of experience under his belt, and he operates Specs Appeal, an eyewear boutique. At the boutique the services offered include frame soldering, adjustments, replacement parts, customized rimless styles, and much more.
