Silhouette glasses

Despite the very French name, Silhouette was founded in 1964 in Austria. From the very beginning, Silhouette knew they wanted to become the world’s premier brand in fashion-forward glasses, and they’ve been working towards that goal ever since.

However, it wasn’t until the 1970s when actress Sylvia Kristel began wearing Silhouettes that the company really began to gain attention. Today, Silhouette has become synonymous with quality and class. From Queen Elizabeth II to Elton John and Lady Gaga, Silhouette glasses are popular with anyone wanting to see sharp and look sharp. Not only that but their lightness and flexibility make them a perfect match for Progressive Lenses.

Silhouette glasses set the standard for unparalleled lightness, brilliant design, and quality craftsmanship

Silhouette glasses: Combining vision and style

Silhouette is a leading name when it comes to stylish and functional eyewear. Silhouette prescription glasses not only provide visual aid but are also high-quality accessories that reflect your personal style.

While your glasses are an incredibly important tool that you need to navigate the world, they should still be beautiful. You wear your glasses every day and they become an inseparable part of your appearance. Almost every photo you ever have taken will feature your smile and your glasses, so it’s important to have a frame that you think is elegant and professional.

At Doig Optometry, we carry a beautiful selection of men’s eyeglasses and women’s eyeglasses by Silhouette, including:

  • Silhouette Rimless Eyeglasses - The ultimate in minimalistic design, Silhouette’s rimless glasses are the epitome of style and subtlety. Choose from a wide variety of frame colours and lens shapes.

  • Full-Rim Glasses - Match your personal style with the world’s lightest individualized full-rim glasses. Choose from a variety of frame colours and shapes.

Only the highest quality materials & manufacturing

Many people have a tendency to see glasses as just glasses. They think all frames are made more or less equal, but that’s just not the case.

Silhouette frames have been used by NASA since 2002. When you work and live in space, it’s not an exaggeration to say you need eyeglasses that you trust with your life. A loose screw or a broken piece of the frame could lead to a catastrophic injury if it were inhaled, or a fragment of the glasses could be drawn into the coolant system of a spacesuit, causing mechanical failure—the list of potential tragedy goes on.

Suffice it to say, frames—like lenses—are not made equally everywhere, and Silhouette is always succeeding to stay on top. Every pair of Silhouette frames are manufactured in Austria to the highest standards of the EU. Silhouette eyeglasses are known for their signature lightness and excellent fit because of their high-quality materials (such as high-tech titanium) and precision craftsmanship. Silhouette has its own R&D department where they use innovative materials to create the ultra-light frames that push the possibility of strength and durability while simultaneously providing an allergy-safe product.

So while Silhouette isn’t the only premium eyewear brand you’ll find in our Calgary optometry clinic, we have to admit they’re one of our favourites. If you’re tired of glasses that are seemingly in constant need of repairs or want a high-quality frame to match your Progressive Lenses, we invite you to experience some of the best in today’s eyewear.
