What Are You Wearing?: Eyes on Fremont Seattle, Washington


Bill Herlehy, Inventory Control

After answering an ad in the newspaper for retail help, Bill has been in the optical industry for 23 years.

He owns six pairs of frames.

FRAMES / Fabulous Fanny’s Vince in crystal

LENSES / Seiko Supercede II with Claris AR

“I like that they are vintage, crystal and cool.”

Anthony Miller, Frame Stylist

Anthony has been in the industry for seven years. While in college, he originally sought to enroll in accounting but when he found out the course was full, an allied health counselor suggested opticianry since it was also “number heavy.” Miller said, “Once I got into it, I loved learning about my eyes and frames and how to help other people with theirs.”

He owns about 40 pairs of frames.

FRAMES / Roger Eye Design Goldline Model #3 with 18K gold plating

LENSES / Seiko 1.60 with Surpass AR

“I like the classic look, clean lines, durable feel, and they are 18k gold. To top it all off, Roger is one of my all-time favorite designer/lines.”

Drew Jacobsen, Frame Stylist

Drew moved to Seattle eight years ago, looking for a career change. He originally started as a sales manager at LensCrafters and went from there, ending up at Eyes on Fremont as a frame stylist.

He owns about 23 optical frames and four sun frames.

FRAMES / Bill’s Special from our own Eyes on Fremont line in a dark matte tortoise

LENSES / Digi 5 G progressive lenses and Claris AR

Kevin Sand, Lab Technician

Kevin has been in the industry for six years. “I needed a change at that point in my life.

A friend told me about an opportunity, and

I started later that week.”

He owns about 30 pairs of frames.

FRAMES / Vinylize “Gilberto” color VD01

LENSES / “They have super top secret X-ray lenses, unfortunately I can’t say much more than that.”

“They make my girlfriend find me more attractive.”

Madison Brink, Store Coordinator

She owns about 18 pairs.

FRAMES / Moscot Punim in gold and tortoise

“They are an interesting take on a pretty reserved semi-rimless style. The brow bar and angular shape of the lens makes for a cool update.”
