Bespoke eyewear is eyewear designed and created for the individual. In mid 2018 Corner Eyecare began offering a bespoke solution to our clients. Every frame is hand made by our Master Optician, Kevin Count.
Each frame is hand made in Kevin’s workshop located here in Glenview, IL. Only the most finest materials are selected: horn, wood and, premium acetate are available.
The bespoke consultation starts with a conversation on personal taste and preferences. materials, forms, colors, and finishing are all discussed in detail. Initial sketches are made along with a series of precise measurements and photographs are taken. Then the design process begins.
In the second stage, clients can choose from a selection of prototypes each designed to fit their unique needs and wishes. Each proposal is superimposed onto the client’s picture and comes with a cardboard cut-out to be tried on. This is when the client can decide on what design option he/she feels the most happy and comfortable.
The final step brings the design to reality with all materials and details chosen by the client. As a finishing touch, the clients name is engraved inside the temple for a personalized result.
