News! Frames now available in the Indianapolis area at Eye on Art Gallery in Carmel,
You can order Wooden Specs directly from this web site! While ordering online requires
a bit more "leg work" on your part compared to buying a frame from your local optician,
it really is not that hard! Just place an order from either our "Frames In Stock"
page or (if you don't see the one there you are looking for), order a frame to be
made for you from our "Order A Frame to Be Made For You" page. Either way, we ship

Stock page, where you will see images of specific frames you can buy today (there
will be some frames there that are unique and one-of-a-kind too!). If you don't
see exactly what you want in stock, order a frame to be made or contact us.
Order a Frame as a Gift for Someone Else–If you would like to order a frame as a
gift for someone else (for them to choose a style, wood, etc.), we can provide a
gift certificate. Contact us for more information if you are interested.
Purchase–At this time we are really focusing on selling frames through the internet/mail
order and so have tried to make the "at-a-distance" purchase experience as easy as
