The holidays are officially upon us and it’s time to start checking folks off the gift lists. While the kids are usually pretty easy (hey, they make their own lists), adults can be a bit harder to shop for. So we’ve partnered with Metro Optics to bring you some eyewear gift ideas that are both stylish and functional.
With 4 locations, Metro Optics carries a huge selection of glasses and sunwear, making it easy to find the perfect pair for anyone on your list. From the understated, to the timeless classics- and of course the more funkier, eye-catching looks. We’re sharing Metro Optics staff picks for this holiday season:
Festive Red and Green
Both these green and red frames will pair perfectly with those holiday office party outfits, and look great well into winter. Pictured here: MCM and Ray-Ban.
Icy Blue & Grey Hues
These icy hues pair well with what’s to come this winter- along with some cool slate colors. Pictured here: Men’s clear Cazal, color block Marc Jacobs, Giorgio Armani rounds, and iridescent Tom Ford.
Glitter & Sparkle
What girl doesn’t like a little sparkle? These pairs have the perfect amount of bling. Pictured here: Bulgari, Bebe, and Miu Miu.
Silver or gold? Both are perfect for the holidays. Pictured here: Dior from the So Real collection, gold Versace aviators.
Holiday Shopping Made Easy
Now that you have some ideas, be sure to take advantage of Metro Optics’ amazing holiday shopping deals. There are TWO opportunities to save at all 4 of their Bronx locations from Black Friday (11/25/16) through New Year’s Eve (for Santa’s pokey helpers!)

#ShopSmall on 11/26
Black Friday is great, but we really love Small Business Saturday to support local Bronx businesses like Metro Optics. Metro Optics will be celebrating Small Business Saturday with in-store raffles at all 4 locations.
Custom Holiday Gift Baskets
You can really get creative with Metro Optics’ custom gift basket options. If the gift recipient is already a patient at Metro and their info is on file- perhaps a pair of new glasses with a supply of contact lenses. Prescription or not, a new pair of shades will always be a hit. Let the elves at Metro dress up your selection in a gorgeous gift basket with all the trimmings (free of charge, with minimum purchase). No idea what they’d like? Metro’s staff is happy to dress up a gift certificate for you too! And for those last minute Santas, there are pre-made baskets with popular sunglasses (non prescription) available for grabs too!
Give the Gift of Better Vision
If you know someone who could benefit from the gift of vision who doesn’t have eyecare insurance, then a great idea is to purchase a Metro Optics Vision Club Membership (online only) for only $99. It’s so important for both children and adults to receive comprehensive annual eye exams, which can identify the signs of eye diseases and other conditions that might not present themselves otherwise. It’s the thought that counts- and this is a really amazing way to show you care.
Members receive a comprehensive eye exam AND a pair of glasses from the VC selection, as well as discounts on upgraded eyewear & 2nd pairs! Redeemable at all 4 Bronx Metro Optics locations.
Flex, Time to Get Specs
One last idea that many often forget about- if you have funds left in your Flex Spending Account, don’t let them expire at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day – use them at Metro Optics!
