Our eyewear collections are broad and diverse. Brand names such as Oakley, Rayban and Prada are among the wide variety of collections we offer. But we are not just a premium eyewear optical, we also appeal to any customer because of our wide variety of budget sensitive stylish eyewear frames. In addition, we select and distribute only the most advance ophthalmic lens technology and even provide one hour service for most single vision and children’s eyewear prescriptions.

What makes our store unique is our passion for creating great customer experiences and with eyewear solutions that exceed expectations. In fact our name, “The River’s Edge Optical”, was thought out in detail and named after a fly fishing shop in Montana (see how The River’s Edge Optical was named).

We want to be your family’s optical!
