Meet Ryan La Sasso of Luxury Eyesight in Lincoln Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ryan La Sasso.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Luxury Eyesight is a family owned eyewear boutique and showroom in the heart of Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. We started our long imagined dream of opening a boutique in 2011. We offer handcrafted highly exclusive eyewear with the utmost degree of personal service given to each patient. Our opticians are highly trained on both eye care and fashion, providing a personalized service to every individual that walks through our door. We specifically sought out the best lab technicians who we work side by side with to produce outstanding custom prescription and edge work to match our needs.

As a thriving independent business ourselves, we take pride in featuring only the finest independently owned collections from around the world. Our showroom-style boutique is our unique version of a fashionably fun eyewear dispensary, unlike any other. Our business was founded on the knowledge that every face is a unique work of art and deserves a great frame provided to them in an intimate atmosphere. If you happen to be in the area please come see us, we hope that you enjoy your experience and tell your friends and family about us.

We are an independent authorized retailer of MYKITA, MATSUDA, Gold & Wood, Face a Face, Bevel, ic! Berlin, Kirk & Kirk, Anne et Valentin, Theo, Eyebobs Readers and La LOOP Necklaces.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has been a pretty smooth road. As smooth as any new small business started from absolutely nothing could be! The collections we carry though have made it easy. They are truly the best eyewear in the world which sell themselves.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Luxury Eyesight – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are definitely different than other typical optical stores. Everything we have is independent collections from Europe and Japan. Not you’re run of the mill glasses you see every day in most optical stores. These are artisans that truly stand by their work and you can see the blood, sweat and tears that are poured into each piece.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We just did it! We finally moved after many years of looking for the perfect location. We expanded to a full service optical store now offering eye exams and contact lenses. This was a huge step up for us and we now feel at home in the area we need to be. Plans for the future? There are always plans… We have many tricks up our sleeve to show Chicago and the world that very soon!
