Francis Drake Eyewear, a boutique eyewear e-retailer that offers Italian prescription eyewear starting at $95, is pleased to announce the launch of its new website.

Great Quality Equals Great Vision

On July 1st of 2014, Francis Drake Eyewear raised the bar in terms of boutique eyewear e-retailers. Francis Drake Eyewear offers customers a beautiful collection of both men and women’s Italian made eyewear starting at $95, which includes a single vision Rx.

Unlike other popular optical boutique eyewear e-retailers, whose product is manufactured in China, Francis Drake Eyewear is all made in Italy out of the highest quality materials and top of the line components. Francis Drake Eyewear uses exotic materials, such as Mazzucchelli Italian Acetate, Monel Metals and TR-90, a flexible plastic that is durable and has 100% memory flex. Francis Drake Eyewear offers a collection of eyewear that appeals to a broader segment of the population. Their designs and styles vary from the very popular vintage look, to more classic and traditional styles.

“I have been in the optical industry for over a decade, and I have witnessed the growth and popularity of boutique eyewear e-retailers,” said Tyler Evans, Founder and CEO of Francis Drake Eyewear. “Although this market is growing, the quality of the eyewear is mediocre at best and their selection is very limited. The superior quality of Francis Drake Eyewear and its diverse selection of styles will appeal to a much broader segment of eyeglass wearers and sets us apart from the competition. At Francis Drake, we believe everyone should be able to experience the benefits of boutique eyewear e-retailers and not have to sacrifice quality for price. This is in line with our philosophy of Fashion, Fit and Function. With Francis Drake Eyewear we make sure that you will Look Great, it will Feel Great, and you will See Great."

Francis Drake Eyewear lens fabrications are also treated with the same quality as the eyeglass frames themselves. Francis Drake uses top-of-the-line first-quality CR-39 1.56 High Index lenses that come with a standard anti-reflective and scratch resistance coating. Francis Drake sunglasses come with polarized lenses with a backside anti-reflective coating. All lens fabrications are checked and finished by their on staff certified opticians at their in house laboratory, making sure the job is completed to perfection.

Francis Drake Eyewear's first collection is comprised of 15 ophthalmic and 10 sunglass styles for men and 18 ophthalmic and 7 sunglass styles for women. For its first collection, Francis Drake Eyewear pays homage to the San Francisco Bay Area where the company lives, works and plays.
