Etnia Barcelona eyewear was created at the very centre of art and culture. They are much more than an independent glasses brand. Their company embodies a culture of rebellious and free, innovative and courageous, attitudes. Their glasses are the reflection of that culture.
Etnia Barcelona has become an international benchmark, not only for the quality of their products, but also for their Mediterranean philosophy. Their head office is located in Barcelona, and they have grown so much over the years that you will also find them in Miami, Hong Kong and Vancouver.
Etnia Barcelona glasses are designed with innovative materials and techniques, providing a light and comfortable wearer experience. Every detail, from the highest quality materials, to the design of an intelligent hinge mechanism which adapts to individual facial features, makes Etnia Barcelona eyewear not only look great, but feel great too.
If you are the type of person who isn't afraid to express yourself, and whose creativity has no limits, then you may find your perfect pair of glasses in our Etnia Barcelona eyewear collection.
The development of the visual system is continuous. Often eye glass prescriptions don’t stabilize until the age of about 18. Until that time, children may struggle with symptoms of blurry vision, trouble focusing or poor binocular vision, which is the ability for the two eyes to work together.
Since children are still learning how to see, and are so adaptable to visual disabilities, many children’s visual problems can go undetected if not checked.
There are a few signs that may indicate a child needs glasses. For example, squinting the eyes when trying to focus, tilting of the head, rubbing the eyes or covering one eye while reading or watching television may be signs of an uncorrected refractive error and the need for glasses.
Children may also complain of blurry vision at a particular distance, or they may have trouble in school. If the two eyes are not working well together, a lazy eye can develop and may cause double vision. If caught early, this can be managed and treated with eyeglasses.
An optometrist can use a variety of tests to help determine if there is any need for glasses or if there are any signs that glasses may be needed in the future. It is especially important for a child to be seen before starting school and yearly afterwards to ensure that they have optimal vision for learning.
If you haven't booked your back-to-school eye exam yet, there is no time better than the present!

If you have thought about purchasing your next pair of prescription eyeglasses online, there are a few things you need to know.
Ordering eyeglasses online may seem easy, but it is very different than ordering your average consumer item. It is important to know that your optometrist is trained in the proper fitting, measuring, manufacturing and dispensing of eyewear. When ordering online, the consumer is, in essence, taking on the role of a trained optical dispenser. This includes taking critical measurements and making critical decisions with respect to frame, lens and material selection.
There is an inherent risk associated with making these determinations without the proper skills and education. Your prescription given to you by your doctor of optometry is only one piece of information that will determine how well you see with your new eyewear. During the normal process of selecting and getting properly fit for your new eyeglasses, your doctor of optometry is determining a number of things to make sure your new purchase is custom made to give you clear and comfortable vision, while making sure you look great, including:
Accurately measuring the distance between your pupils so that your new lenses will be properly located in the new frames relative to your eyes
As a consumer, you have a number of choices when it comes to purchasing eyewear. Working with your optometrist from the initial optometric eye exam to the final fitting will ensure you receive accurate, quality manufactured eyewear that is best suited for your eyes and your lifestyle.

FACE A FACE frames are developed in their Paris studio, where each frame are treated like small subtle pieces of architecture, playing with sizes, shapes, material and textures.
The founder Pascal Jaulent has always had a passion for social issues and for the study of ethnology. Originally it was his dream was to become an urban planner. His studies at the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (Paris Management School) led him to first work in the financial departments of large companies (Nestlé, Dior) before he worked as General Manager of Lafont Paris.
It was while working at Lafont that he discovered the the connection between the work of an architect and as well as the technical and fashion components of creative eyewear.
In the new 2019 collection FACE A FACE goes a step further and in exploring transparency and playing with optical effects. “Sometimes a detail is nearly invisible when transparent and other times it is highlighted when colourful,” explains Creative Director Pascal Jaulent, “The way light and colour intertwine is truly captivating”.
No matter how you look at it, FACE A FACE and their expressive designs are far from standardized fashion and conformist trends. They are always in a league of its own, and we are happy to share this passion for fashion and eyewear design with you.
