Joanne has been in the optical industry for three years.

As an art major I have an appreciation for fine craftsmanship and unique designs,” Sze said. “It has been such an amazing journey discovering independent eyewear, and I am excited to discover more; bringing exclusive designers back to our clients in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada.”

“I love wearing this frame because it is a unique shape, and I particularly love the thicker metal gold sides. My anti-fatigue lens design relaxes my eyes for my everyday lifestyle, as I am always on the go and spend countless working hours in front of media devices. I absolutely love the Trivex material as I am rough with my glasses.”
