Susan and Christine have been working in the industry for 21 years. They met when they both worked at Rossland Optical—Susan was managing the optical’s social media and marketing, and Christine was a lab technician. The two later decided to partner up, and opened Eye Bar Optical Boutique in May 2019.

Between the two of them, Susan estimates that they own about 100 pairs of glasses.


Susan Albornoz

FRAMES / Limited edition yellow gold Carrera aviator frame 1109 by Safilo

LENSES / Shamir Autograph 3 single vison Rose tinted lens

“The Carrera frame I find is an interesting piece. A different spin on what the typical aviator frame looks like, but current and on trend with it being rose gold. The lenses are tinted pink not for aesthetic reasons, but more for medical. I suffer from headaches and this helps in reducing the intensity.”

Christine Coloma

FRAMES / Anacolé San Francisco frame in black with an outlined tortoiseshell pattern

LENSES / Nikon SeeMax Ultimate

“Christine likes this frame because of the extended bridge that allows for the perfect fit for a petite bridge. The shape of the lens is interesting in that it’s not quite a perfect square. This particular frame also can be customized to include Swarovski crystals to reflect your birth stone color, which really makes it stand out.”
