Wink Eyewear

Wink Eyewear – we not only enable you to see, we make sure your personality is more fully seen.

Wink Eyewear is Columbia City’s optical boutique offering comprehensive eye/health exams, glasses, sunglasses, contacts, ready made readers and accessories. When you walk into Wink you realize you have discovered something new and fresh in eyewear fashion and stores.  Owner/Optician Michele Bayle has 25 years of optical management, ownership and buying experience right here in Seattle, she has traveled to many places to find the best mix of product for your shopping experience. You will find collections such as the handmade collection from Budapest with laminated vinyl records on the front, or Drift eyewear with handmade wood temples from Chicago! Wink has a mix of beautiful colored plastics, textured metals, titanium, aluminum and even ArtLife which has a comic book paper temple treatment.

Wink Eyewear is Michele’s latest expression of what eyewear means to her. “Eyewear doesn’t have to be ordinary or fall into the category of functional, we like to push the boundaries a little and ask you to stretch how you see yourself, try a new color, or a bigger/bolder look or try something crazy fun, it is all good and it is just eyewear not a $40,000 car.”  Don’t be wary of the boutique store and it’s design (her other passion you can ask her about) her prices have quite a range and she has something for everyone.

While you are in Wink you may be serviced by Soozee, Wink’s store manager and licensed optician and very knowledgeable about her optics! Bongo, our store mascot, is often in the store to greet you and ask for a rub on the belly. Don’t worry he is a labradoodle – hypoallergenic and a lover!

You will also discover that shopping for eyewear can be fun because that is what we make it; with Michele’s interior design background and Gina’s management and lens specialist expertise, rest assured you will be guided to find the perfect pair(s) for you with just the right lenses!
