Where Fashion and Eyewear Take Flight!

About UsReviewsOur Stores
BrandsOur StoryOur PromiseContact
Nested in the heart of Linden Hills, Minneapolis, Owl Optical was founded by two lovebirds with a passion for exceptional glasses and sunglasses. We scour the planet for the most exciting new designers and brands and bring them right to good old Minneapolis (and now with a new store in St. Paul). Unique colors, specialty fits, petite frames – we believe everyone has the right to be thrilled with what they’re putting on their face! Exercise your right to fabulousness and stop in for a free frame makeover. We offer full eye exams and optometry services, crayons and toys for kiddos, and plenty of pint-sized glasses too!
Thank you for professional service and warm reception in your shop. I adore my new glasses– the first pair you picked out for me!

Owl lands in St. Paul!

New store now open in St. Paul's Merriam Park neighborhood. Visit us at 1589 Selby Avenue, St. Paul 55104.

Unique Eyewear

Your face is an inspired creation, so your glasses should be too! They should also fit you as comfortably as your favorite jeans. We specialize in frame makeovers and finding your glasses soul-mate.


Move beyond the mundane. From subtle and sultry to “please don’t bother me I’m a rock star” find sunglasses that say something and mean it. Prescription sunglasses happily crafted.

Kids Glasses

It’s not always fun to wear glasses as a kid, but it’s a lot more fun when the choices include Etnia Barcelona, Lafont, TC Charton, JF Rey, OGI and more.

Asian Fit

Diversity is what makes this world beautiful, and we proudly support it with specialty selections such as TC Charton. Alexandra Peng created a line of frames fashioned exclusively for the Asian face with beautiful results!

Petite Power

Discover dozens of delightful designs for delicate features. We’re known around town for our extensive petite selection and are always bringing in new petite eyewear styles.
