Great Frames. Great Service. Great Value.

Manifesto | Staff | History



Most eyeglasses are made and distributed by just a few giant “evil empire” companies. Their opacities are rapidly eliminating the general public’s choices. Eyes on Fremont is taking a stand against this. When you buy glasses from Eyes on Fremont, know that you are supporting small independent companies striving for transparency.

Eyes on Fremont



Eyes on Fremont opened for business on Halloween day, 1996. Stan Jonasson and wife Linda Jangaard started Eyes on Fremont based upon a vision for a different kind of retail optical store.

A month before opening, Stan was in Paris at the annual eyewear tradeshow looking for Eye on Fremont’s opening frame selection. The idea was to work directly with designers in order to offer the highest quality frames with uncompromised stylings, while keeping prices reasonable. He accomplished the mission, and Paris is still a major buying trip every year. Since Eyes on Fremont works directly with designers, you will often find things ahead of current eyewear trends, from both a fashion and function point of view.

Also very close to the store’s core values is a strong sense of community. Eyes on Fremont is a proud supporter of Public Radio, Real Change, Seattle Central Community College Opticianary Program, and a number of other local fundraising events and programs benefiting arts and education. Eyes on Fremont is proud to be, and proud to support local and independent business.



Eyes on Fremont stocks over 4,000 hand-selected frames. Working with vendors from around the world, we are able to curate a selection of frames that caters to every fit, taste, and Rx need.



Every pair of glasses is thoughtfully fabricated for each unique Rx and frame combination. Skilled Opticians interpret both functional and aesthetic variables to produce the finest quality eyewear available.
