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 Opticianry Program, and a number of other local fundraising events and programs benefitting arts and education. Eyes on Fremont is proud to be, and proud to support local and independent business.
