After much anticipation, the "coming soon" paper was taken down, vintage hanging glasses appeared over the shop and the doors of Luxe Optique officially opened on July 27th, 2016. Suddenly, interesting and unique eyewear started framing faces all around town, magnifying the already creative and diverse personalities of Beacon.  

This fine eyewear shop was quickly discovered by Beaconites and Hudson Valley denizens as Luxe Optique became the sole answer to "Where did you get those amazing glasses?".  As good news travels fast, clients from the New York City and Brookyln areas are finding the train ride on the Metro North to be well worth the selection of curated eyewear collections carried by Luxe Optique. 

Knowing the importance of good eye health, Luxe Optique has professional doctors of optometry on staff and works out of network with all insurance companies. Luxe Optique is a DMV approved location for a convenient motor vehicle eye exam.
