Tabulae eyewear was born after one of the owners was fired from their corporate optical job for being “too honest” to customers and not making sales goals… go figure! Their goal is to combat overpriced brand name eyewear with affordable quality products, and they’ve been knocking it out of the park with designs that combine modern day edge with vintage style. Tabulae Eyewear believes that the perfect pair of glasses isn’t determined by the brand or price tag, but the feeling they give you when you look in the mirror, and we couldn’t agree more!
