We are one of Australia’s most unique eyewear stores, specialising in high quality and limited edition eyewear. Our independently owned practice provides high levels of service and expertise when looking after your vision and selecting your eyewear.

Curating and importing optical frames and sunglasses from all corners of the world into our city of Melbourne store, we love to travel. By attending international trade fairs, discovering frame makers and creating new relationships with many small businesses, we are able to offer a range of styles and colours to suit all shapes, colours and sizes especially for those seeking to communicate their individuality. We love this direct contact with frame makers, visiting their factories, relishing opportunities to collaborate and learn about processes and materials.

Since opening in 2013 on Lygon Street, Carlton Eyelab’s goal is to combine our interests in people, study, optics, travel, business, design, and aesthetics in our relaxed optical setting. Our experience in making spectacles guarantees that your prescription, your particular facial features, hobbies and needs are all considered when we assist you in your purchase. We aim to make you the best eyewear you’ve ever worn for any of the following tasks

  • skiing
  • swimming
  • special events
  • cycling
  • snorkeling
  • everyday
  • reading in bed
  • golf
  • extended computer use and blue light protection
  • simply great glasses

Eye examinations, sight tests, contact lens consultations and retinal photography are available three to four times per week with Melbourne Optometrist Sandra Palmer. We can also claim your private health insurance on the spot.

Located five doors north of Cinema Nova in Carlton, across the road from Readings and Jimmy Watson’s, we hope to see you soon.
