Two seconds. That’s all you get to make a great first impression. And since your eyewear choice plays a major role in creating that impression, it is essential your frame style is in sync with your personality and fashion sense.
For the first time, Kelowna has an original and charming optical store with an amazing selection of artisanal and fashion eyewear that will help you make that great impression, one that reflects your personality and suits your face to a ‘T’.
Inspired Eyes Creative Eyewear is curated by Lana Belvis, owner and Licensed Optician. Her artistry is evident in everything from the shop décor, with its antique furniture in vintage white, to the eclectic eyeglass frame displays, making the store a fun, funky and playful place to create a new look while helping you see life more clearly.
Belvis’s experience as an optician adds a strong professionalism to your visit and her ability to help you select the very best frames for your face and personal style is extraordinary. Watching her work is like magic, as she finds the ideal frame to perfectly express your sense of style.
“Selecting frames and lenses for each client is both art and science,” says Belvis. “The process involves a technical understanding of the prescription, finding the right lens design for ease of vision, and capping it off with a splash of fashion.”
The eyewear collections at Inspired Eyes range are impressive. “We carry unique, top-quality collections from the world’s leading artisanal eyewear designers,” says Belvis. “These are not necessarily brand names for the mainstream. We leave clichéd logos behind, and instead love to surprise our clients with stunning, eclectic pieces they aren’t likely to find elsewhere.”
Jewellery inspired, highly elegant 24-karat gold frames set with diamonds from the exclusive Ørgeen line by Grand Danois of Denmark are a case in point. Bespoke, made-to-measure, and infinitely variable frames by British designer TD Tom Davies allow you to choose your shape, colour and size – monogramed and made-to-order. And award-winning Canadian designer Mehran Baghaie offers flat, matte-finish metals with an updated retro look that are simply stunning.
More than anything, Lana Belvis wants every client to enjoy a high-end personalized experience when choosing eyewear at Inspired Eyes Creative Eyewear. Her warmth and genuine interest in helping you look great and see better makes the eyewear-buying experience a pleasure. Unpretentious is the name of the game at Inspired Eyes.
And if you’re on a budget, no worries – everyone is treated with the same respect and high quality of service.
Everyone’s needs are unique and the best possible vision involves task-specific eyewear. In addition to prescription eyewear, you’ll also find sunglasses, magnifying lenses, readers, and even swim goggles in varied styles and colours to meet your vision needs and enhance eye safety.
Inspired Eyes welcomes prescriptions from all optometrists and has an onsite optometrist who can update your prescription, fit contact lenses and assess your eye health. “Our optometrist, Dr. Brooke Parker, has a wonderful way with patients,” says Belvis. “He does a comprehensive eye health exam that patients find engaging and informative.”
There’s no doubt you’ll be enchanted with the décor, selection and personalized service at Inspired Eyes Creative Eyewear. “We to help you see better and look amazing doing it,” says Belvis. “That’s my promise, and my pleasure.”
