The Looking Glass(es) is a family-run boutique optical store in Fort Collins Colorado. Our ultimate goal is to provide high-quality eyewear and lenses in a modern atmosphere of community service, sustainability, and ecological responsibility. We offer a unique selection of frames made from recycled materials, vintage frames and designer frames from smaller companies.

Chances are we can probably get it. We make it our goal to fulfill your needs and get exactly what you want in the style that you love.
The lab we use is independently branded and also a family owned and operated business. With expertise from years of experience, they carefully craft lenses and will do expert work with high prescriptions or high wrap frames.
