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. 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!
