L.A. Eyeworks


The first L.A. Eyeworks store was opened in 1979 by Gai Gherardi and Barbara McReynolds, two owners with a shared love for eyeglasses. As the pair had difficulty finding the types of glasses that they wanted to sell, they began designing their own L.A. Eyeworks collection, which started with a single frame, the Beat. This classic chunky frame was modified with color and textures in order to create a frame that accentuated personality.

​Even today, L.A. Eyeworks remains true to this goal, by creating a broad selection of eyeglasses and sunglasses that are continuously changing the way people think about eyewear. The company still works with a focus on designing unique, modern eyewear. Using both plastic and metal frames to incorporate bold colors and designs into new eyeglass designs, L.A. Eyeworks creates a selection of eyewear that is unmatched in uniqueness and design.
