I have been a contact lens wearer ever since, (you’re not going to believe this), I was 8 years old. I know that it’s hard to believe. My glasses were only worn at the end of the day when my eyes grew tired from the contacts.
My eye doctor told me this summer that he thought I couldn’t wear lenses anymore. I shuddered. What? No more lenses? He said the Jerusalem air was making my eyes so dry that the contacts could only be worn minimally. I had a hard time digesting that bit of news because my problem was that glasses never really did look good on me. I searched from store to store for a nice pair of glasses and, alas, I could not find any that I liked. You’ll be happy to know that there is a happy ending. My mother in NJ has a friend whose granddaughter and husband in Israel own a very chic, high end eyeglass store, located on Rechov Ben Yehuda in Jerusalem’s downtown. Erez Optic.
I was very impressed. There are rows and rows of beautiful and very stylish first class frames. They even had a great sale! 50% off all frames. (They still have this sale). I chose well!
Designer brands include Miu Miu, PRADA, Dior, Tiffany & co., Ralph Lauren, and many more. Erez Optics also carries exclusive brands such as Ron Arad, Mykita, and a few others.
The Ralph Lauren Glasses that I picked, I hardly take off! Just love them! I also paid for special tinted lenses that darken into sunglasses so I don’t have to worry about finding my sunglasses!
Customer service at Erez Optic is very personable and professional. The owners wanted to bring a store to Jerusalem that combined the highest level of expertise with the most updated and fashionable frames from worldwide well known designers. They also carry many types of contact lenses.
