Uptown Optical, located at 111 N. Higgins Avenue in the downtown section of beautiful Missoula, Montana is a locally owned and operated optical boutique. This retro shop displays a vast array of authentic vintage eyeglass frames as well as modern designer pieces. The owner, Mary Shull, was raised in rural Montana, and many of her vintage frames are the original inventory of her father who is an optometrist. Apprenticing under her father's direction from a very young age, Mary has over 30 years of optical experience combined with good old-fashioned customer service. Kobe, the shop cat, will likely greet you as you arrive and make you feel right at home! You are welcome to come in and try on the latest trends in eyewear as well as the fun, retro frames! These pieces are a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art, and your prescription lenses can be fabricated to fit them beautifully in the on-site lab. Designer frames featured in the shop include Oakley, Rayban, Seraphin, Jimmy Choo, Morel France 1880 and Oga, Hugo Boss, Etnia Barcelona, Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Anglo American Optical, Allyn Scura, and Pro-Design Denmark . Same-day service is available for many Rx's.
