Gisele Klein, of Impressive Eyewear, is happy to bring more selection to Surrey!

Eyewear that’s fun + funky – just like you!

This local optician is bringing unique selections home to South Surrey.

Sometimes, you can find your solutions close to home. Other times, it may take a bit of distance for answers to appear.

It was while living in South Africa in the early 2000s that Gisele Klein, owner of South Surrey’s Impressive Eyewear, built her passion for unique, high-quality eyewear – although she had been in the industry since 1982!

The discovery inspired her to open her own store in 2010, with the goal of bringing in quality brands with unique, inspired designs you will not find elsewhere.

“I’d been hearing my customers complain for years that all glasses look the same, so when I was fortunate enough to come across all these exclusive, high-quality brands in South Africa, I knew there was an opportunity to bring in similar brands and styles to South Surrey, which I could not pass up on,” Klein says.

After all, you wear your glasses every day, it is important to pick a pair to match your personality and lifestyle!

“We offer a lot of unique brands. Knowledge is crucial when it comes to selecting your glasses. It is important not to rush the process because we want to make sure we are choosing glasses that will be ideal for your lifestyle. Details such as your lens design, for example, will depend on how you use your eyes,” Klein notes.

If you spend a lot of time looking at a computer screen, you might consider an anti-fatigue lens – the blue, anti-reflection coating blocks radiation from your screen. Do you spend a lot of time on the road, near glaring surfaces such as water, snow, or even sand? If so, polarized lenses for sunglasses will block a lot of the reflection, making them an excellent choice.

Klein even offers a digital mirrored camera system to help with your frame choice selections. Especially useful for those who cannot see themselves without glasses. The system captures images of you in the frames you are interested in, for you to then consult with while wearing your current glasses – so you can choose your style with confidence.

“A lot of people don’t realize how much your glasses depend on the various uses of your eyes, that’s why education underscores our daily practices – it is important our customers understand why we recommend the choices in frames and lenses that we have, and how it can benefit them,” Klein comments.

If you would like to embark on your own eyewear journey, a trip to Impressive Eyewear will help you find styles as fun as you! Visit them online and contact them today.
