As a self-proclaimed fashionista, I love taking new fashion trends and creating ways to incorporate them into my own personal style. Eyewear is one of the biggest things in fashion right now, and with the blue light blocking glasses trend exploding, eyewear has become a serious style staple! It goes far beyond prescription or necessity, it’s about a look. A good pair of glasses or sunglasses can completely transform your look, elevate your style and give you the confidence and reassurance to tackle anything! Even though I don’t need glasses, I use them as the most incredible fashion accessory, and I love a good deal but also believe in investing in quality fashion staples that will last, that’s why I love Urban Eyewear so much.
Urban Eyewear is Thunder Bay’s newest luxury eyewear and eyecare concept, and sister store of Toronto’s Chic Eyes Optical, and so much more than your average eyewear shop! They carry the latest in designer fashion forward eyewear trends for men and women, and exceed expectations with their personalized approach!
Urban Eyewear is a one stop + shop and has so much to offer. Pick out your favorite prescription ready, blue light blocking ready, or even sunglasses ready, frames and let them take it from there!

POLO Ralph Lauren
Maui Jim offers 100% protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays and has earned the recommendation of the Canadian Cancer Society! and trust me, there is no such thing as too many pairs of sunglasses!
My personal favorite eyewear? Hands down are blue light blocking glasses. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably heard me talk about them a million times and it’s because I live in mine! I spend a lot of time in front of a screen whether it’s my phone or laptop and screens emit potentially harmful artificial lighting that can cause headaches, trouble sleeping, eye twitching, blurred vision and more! So not only do my favorite frames make my outfits way cuter, they also have serious health benefits. Here are a couple of my favorite pairs: Scroll through my IG and IGTV to see more of Urban Eye or visit their IG here!
