Boise’s Eyewear Rebellion Opens Downtown

Last updated June 19, 2020 by Totally Boise

Lumos Optical is bringing cute and affordable glasses to Boise, no seriously they are actually affordable for everyone. Located in the heart of downtown on 5th street, Lumos brings something special to the Boise community.

Using the well-described motto of “Boise’s eyewear rebellion,” Lumos’ aim is to cater to everyone by making sure every client leaves with glasses that not only boost their confidence but doesn’t leave them in financial distress.

After being in the optical industry for years, the Lumos team wants to bring a fresh and new look to the eyewear experience.

Keeping their store at appointments only, not only gives clients that “fancy feeling” but you get a genuine experience you don’t get anywhere else. Not to mention, their space is cute, trendy and looks like you stepped into a cool modern boutique without the price tag attached.

By cutting out the middleman, Lumos is able to lower glasses significantly and give honest package pricing with no hidden fees. Nastasia’s vision for Lumos was to not have to make clients choose between a cute pair of glasses and a “practical” pair. With how low Lumos’ prices are, you can get two for the price it would cost you to get one anywhere else.

Although Lumos recommends going to an optometrist for the occasional health screenings, Lumos can take care of everything else with their in house eye exam that is good for two years and again, at a very low cost. Did we mention that you also get to say you pretty much have custom Boise locally made glasses?

If you are in the market for new glasses, or just want to step up your outfit game.
