Now that spring is in full swing, the latest eyewear trends are hitting the stores straight from the catwalk. Why not treat yourself to a new pair of our on trend glasses in time for this summer’s BBQs and holidays?


At Richard Petrie Optometrists, we stock a variety of men’s, women’s and children’s frames. Here’s a quick rundown of the latest looks for spring.




Modern Retro

William Morris Cat eye frames from Richard PetrieMany designers including Michael Kors and Diane von Furstenberg drew inspiration from the late 50s and early 60s this season, with the traditional cat eye for ladies and a touch of classic cool with bold shapes and neutral tones for men. Our selection of William Morris and Chloé frames offer some of the best cat eye styles out there.



This season is all about neutral, utilitarian themes, with hues of khaki, olive green and leather brown taking centre stage – perfect for both men and women. We offer a range of styles to compliment any skin tone and face shape.


Classic Twist

Joules Glasses frames available from Richard PetrieYou can’t go wrong with a classic frame. This season they’re given a new lease of life with bold and bright colours, including tones of cranberry, dark navy and azure. We have large selection on offer with our new range of Joules frames now in store for ladies.





Downtown Funk

Add a little funk to your wardrobe with bold, angular frames with a sporty edge. Black frames or funky colourful patterns like the Ted Baker full rimmed plastic frames we have in will do the trick.


70s Chic

70s Chic specsThe 1970s revival is a big hit on the runway this season, why not wear this trend with style and make a statement with metallic detailing, defined shapes and deep colour tones. We stock Calvin Klein and Pro Design with two-tone colour options and Pro Design frames come in a huge range of colours.


Are frames not your thing? We also offer a range of 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ Brand contact lenses, whether you fancy NATURAL SPARKLE™ NATURAL SHIMMER™ OR NATURAL SHINE ™. Each design blends seamlessly with your eye colour for a unique look.
