Dial up the heat this season in achingly cool modern metallics that refuse to blend into the background.

Coastal calling


This bronze, soft octagon frame from Prodesign ticks every trend box and combines functional, clean Danish design with colours and forms inspired by the Danish coast.

Vintage chic

For the divas


This exclusive Chopard sunglass model with gradient lenses and precision-cast metal detail on the side is dedicated to the Red Carpet Collection. The mirrored palm leaf-effect provides diva-esque allure.

Lizzy's style notes... 

Each month, OT columnist, Lizzy Yeowart, consider a dispensing scenario. This month: glasses for a 10-year-old high myope

Lizzy says...
"Finding a frame for a fashion-conscious 10-year-old isn’t always easy. Give your ‘tweenage’ patients something to smile about with one of these stylish options."
