If you’ve scanned rows of eyeglass frames at optical departments but were unable to find one that fit your face shape, personality and lifestyle, then it’s time you stopped by iSight Family Eye Care in Roseville.

After having difficulty finding frames that flattered them at other stores, scores of customers report loving iSight's wide variety of eyeglasses.

The experienced opticians recommend frames specially suited to a client's style preferences and occupation. There are also special selections for clients who have challenges finding the perfect fit, such as larger men, petite women and people of Asian descent.

Kim Brown of Minneapolis has worked with optical practices for years as a manufacturers representative for REM eyewear, a family owned company. Her lines include John Varvatos (a staff favorite), Lucky, Jones New York, Converse,

Jack Purcel and their latest revolutionary eyewear, Spine. Kim appreciates working with independent, family owned practices that look for unique, fashionable frames to offer their customers.

"We have so many positives at iSight," explains managing optician Kathi Thompson, who has been an optician for 16 years. "We're family owned, have a wide selection of frames, and our prices are very reasonable.

"We give honest advice on frames and can fit people in when they have an emergency," she adds. "We work as a team, and if there's an issue with the lab, we're on top of it."

Among the 1,500 eyeglass and sunglass frames on display at iSight, there are frames for every budget, with frame and lens packages starting at $119.

Jill and Jim Johnson have owned iSight Family Eye Care in Roseville for over a year, but they are not new to the optical business. They also own Metro Optics in downtown St. Paul and Cottage Grove Optical. Additionally, they own Specs on the Beach, a sunglasses website.

Affordable prices don't mean iSight skimps on quality. The Johnsons personally hand-pick eyewear from a variety of both large and small specialty manufacturers. "Since we are independently owned, we have the freedom and flexibility to carry over 70 different brands," Jim says.  

"There's something to fit everyone's budget," Jill adds. "We also have over 500 sunglasses in stock, both non-prescription and prescription-ready. And we take almost all insurance plans."

iSight partners with Dr. Raluca Sima, a multilingual optometrist who performs eye exams and vision tests, and fits patients with contact lenses.

The clinic's state-of-the-art equipment can provide early detection for glaucoma, retinal problems and macular degeneration.  

If repeat customers are any indication of excellent services and products, then iSight is scoring high marks.

Take customer Ann Haas of St. Anthony, who says she was so pleased with her experience at iSight she recommended the clinic to her husband.

Haas says, "I first came to iSight because it was convenient. It's next door to Byerly's, so I thought I'd swing through. I quickly discovered they have an awesome selection.

"I'm an odd fit because I have a wider face than most women and red hair," she adds. "I found three or four pairs I loved and had to narrow my selections. Kathi gave me great advice on fit and color."

Haas explains her husband also has specific needs in eyewear, "My husband is a tennis teacher and coach, and needed athletic glasses. iSight had multiple choices to fit his active lifestyle."

Thompson says this was another example of the iSight staff customizing glasses and lenses to fit a client's needs and lifestyles.

It's just another success story for iSight's goal of helping people find that perfect pair of glasses, Jill Johnson says. "No one should walk out of here without finding something they love."
