ABOUT US:

THE ORIGINS OF

OSCAR OGLETHORPE

Oscar Oglethorpe is a forward-thinking, patient-oriented optical shop, with a curated collection of standout independent frames at surprisingly reasonable prices. It’s the brainchild of a couple of close friends who have been in the eyewear industry together for many years, and who made the decision to open an eyewear store because they wanted to bring something better to the industry.

Fitting Eyeglasses

A Brief History: It All Started with A Simple Mission…

We’ve always believed that your eyewear should look fantastic, stand the test of time, and be affordable. We don’t think that’s too much to ask! Our goal is to stand out from the crowd with amazing quality products at affordable prices.

When we hand-pick our independent frames —touring eyewear expos across the world, visiting independent manufacturers to inspect their processes, when we truly choose everything we sell — we’re bringing the best of independent eyewear to Greensboro at prices our neighbors can get behind. And the loyalty our clients show to us re-emphasizes those goals every day.

How We Make Your Experience Spec-tacular

While we spend plenty of time behind the scenes working to curate your eyewear shopping experience, we put just as much effort into our eye exams and eye health check-ups. During your eye exam, our Optometrist sets aside ample time to ensure your eye health and find the clearest prescription for your vision.

Our expert opticians are professionals at getting to know you: how you spend your days, what your tastes are, and what you look great in. They’re masters at finding exquisite frames for every aspect of your life, whether you need work eyewear, glasses for going out, special occasion frames, or just love to look sharp at all times.

TO US, COMMUNITY MATTERS

We aren’t serving strangers, we’re providing frames and lenses to our neighbors that they’ll wear every day, and they trust and support us in that work. That’s why it’s also important to us that we participate in, and give back to, our community. Check out our community page to see how we help out, and where you can find your friendly neighborhood optical boutique next.

The Bottom Line: Fine, Fashionable Frames for Fair Funds

Or, with a little less alliteration: Our business model lets our clients focus on getting the most stylish, outstanding eyewear for their needs, without having to sweat the bill. For $150 or $250, you know you’re getting fashion-forward frames that are fit to your face and built to last, as well as light and thin, shatter-resistant lenses with anti-reflective coating and scratch protection.

Or, even more simply put, we’ve done the legwork to make sure all our frames are truly exceptional, and that you’ll have a blast finding your next pair of glasses with us. Schedule an appointment today!
