What makes a pair of eyeglasses retro? We think it’s the overall profile of the frame. People usually think of retro eyeglass frames as rounded, metallic, and classic. Other styles, like tortoise or classic black, also feature that old-school touch that makes retro-style eyeglasses shine.
Buying eyewear online with EyeBuyDirect is as hassle-free as it gets. After ordering you should expect your eyeglasses within 7-14 business days. Don’t worry if your frame doesn’t fit you perfectly. We have a 14-Day Fit & Style Guarantee, which means you can return your purchase within this timeframe.
