McDonald Optical Dolbany 05
From the start, Dolabany Eyewear’s core belief has been that eyewear should be fitted and sold in a professional and personalized environment by eye care providers. Therefore, we do not sell to “big-box” chain-stores, nor do we allow our brands to be sold on the internet. We are continuously working to keep our brands exclusively available through brick & mortar locations. Furthermore, we encourage and redirect brand inquiries from the consumer to our independent partners listed in the Store Locator. We are determined to protect the independent eye care professional and the consumer alike. These values go hand-in-hand in designing high-quality, fashionable eyewear. Our brands are produced with premium materials and exceptional workmanship. For example, our retro models are made the old-fashioned way – using high-quality acetate, real rivets, and multi-barrel hinges. Our unique designs are always at the forefront of eyewear fashion, implementing new materials and concepts, such as our latest collection frames made with TR-90 material which is extremely lightweight, durable, and hypoallergenic. This material can be found throughout our collections adding function to fashion.
