About Art For Eyes Optical

Art for Eyes Inc. was established in 2007 in Green Cove Springs on US 17. After 7 years we moved to our Fleming Island location. Recently we moved to Middleburg (only minutes away from our previous location) because our building was sold.


We are a Christian based company with Godly values. 

We specialize in

- Unique, fun, stylish frames

- Large and petite frames

- Children's Eyewear

- Over 30 different specialty lenses (glasses)

- Costa Del Mar (sun)glasses - with or without prescription

- WileyX Safety (sun)glasses - with or without prescription 

- Smart Vision Exams (five-minute vision test for your glasses prescription or contact lens renewal prescription)

We can make glasses for just about any budget, so why go to a chain store while you can support a local business? You pay around the same price while getting the best service and recommendations.

Quality is our standard! And our reviews will show that.

Come see for yourself how Art For Eyes is unique and makes a difference in quality and care.
