As an independent optical shop with a unique vision of our own, we are enthusiastic about making connections & supporting eyewear companies such as this intriguing sunglass line from Australia. To us, the backstory is just as important as the product. 


Meet Australian Eyewear designer,  Michael Crawley- part of the mastermind duo behind VALLEY EYEWEAR. Together with his wife Tenielle, they design & curate this collection with an idealistic vision of what a really cool, high quality pair of glasses should be.  

Michael was frustrated with the sunglass market & its lack of good quality-cutting edge fashion offerings, so he basically drafted up the dream pair himself at a time when both him and his wife were on the search for new career ventures. As a matter of fact, according to Tenielle, his first design was drawn one night freehand on the kitchen counter! Way to cook up a dream pair of sunglasses…!

Here are a few of the newest Ophthalmic designs from the collection that we have in stock:

The aesthetic is a bold & confident, deftly edgy interpretation of classic eyewear lines…

Their fashion-forward looks have won the attention of celebrities such as Kat von D, Gwen Stefani, Kanye West, Katie Homes, & Marilyn Manson, as well as collaboration interests with some famed designers such as custom hat designer, Kick Fouquet in LA.
