Shiv is the answer to the question you’re always asking - Why aren’t there more wider frames?! Shiv, our widest release to date, is a classic rectangle, designed to be a simple and well proportioned option for those who need a wider frame.
All of our prescription lenses are cut and fitted at our partner lab - Plastic Plus - in Toronto. Plastic Plus is a state of the art privately owned lens laboratory, who we’ve worked with for over 7 years. They’re constantly at the forefront of new technology, such as the Autofit and Avulux lens types.
All of our lenses* are cut from high-quality optical plastic and come with the latest anti-reflection, anti-glare, and scratch-resistant coatings included.
Our varifocal lenses are high-quality freeform digital lenses with limited amounts of peripheral distortion that is equatable to all but the very top lenses in the world.
*except Avulux lenses
We make our acetate frames from a mix of high quality chinese and italian acetates, and our metal frames from quality stainless steel.
We take great care in choosing our hinges and screws as well to ensure the longevity of all Ollie Quinn glasses and sunglasses.
Everything is designed in house by our talented product team based in London.
All our frames are made at our partner factories in Shenzhen, which we regularly visit to ensure responsible and ethical alignment. We’ve got some pretty good relationships with them now, after working with them for over 6 years!

What is Blue Light?
Blue light from screens can cause headaches, blurry vision, and eye strain. This coating assists with blocking the potentially harmful (blue) HEV light emitted by screens (computers, TVs, tablets, phones etc.).
Do I need thin lenses
Standard prices quoted include our standard index lenses [1.5 index] which is suitable for people with a combined prescription strength up to -/+ 2 (total of sph and cyl on your prescription). For those who have a stronger prescription, we offer thin high index lenses [1.6] for $50 more and for prescriptions with a combined strength over -/+4 we offer ultra thin high index lenses [1.67] for $100 more. Our thinnest lenses [1.74] are only available in-store.
NB, Ontario. If ordering thinner lenses, you will need to come in-store for our trained members of staff to take some extra measurements specific to your frame choice.
We highly recommend having a Virtual Assistance appointment before ordering varifocals online as almost all issues arise from frame choice and fit. You can book this via the Appointments link in our menu at the top of the page or side if on mobile.
