The Masunaga Story – Japanese-made optical frames since 1905

At Eyewise Opticians, we are very proud to feature a very high quality glasses collection, all the way from Japan, called Masunaga. Founded in Fukui, Japan, in 1905, Masunaga enjoys a world class reputation for pioneering the highest standards in spectacle lens design and manufacturing. Did you know that once upon a time, way back in 1933, Masunaga even managed to convince the Emperor of Japan to take ownership of some solid gold frames for his own use? Such is the tradition of the company, which takes pride in workmanship, attention to every detail in the processes that result in superbly-crafted eyewear, eyewear that can give true enjoyment to the wearer.

The Masunaga collection is a combination of high grade Pure Titanium as well as beautifully hand-polished Japanese Acetate frames, with durable seven barrel hinges and distinctive silver rivets. There are over 200 manual processes involved in making a Masunaga frame, and all these processes are handled in-house, from raw material to production and final finish. At Eyewise, we have an increasing number of clients who place great value, not just on the aesthetics of the frame, but also the functionality and durability of a high quality product – and in Masunaga, you have one such product.

  • Do you feel it is important that glasses are comfortable and should be fitted correctly to suit the face?
  • Do you take pride in wearing a pair of glasses which make you feel good about yourself and allow you to enjoy the best vision?
  • Do you hate the thought of choosing new eyewear, only to make the wrong decision?

If you answer “Yes” to any of the above, then we may be able to help you.

Our qualified dispensing opticians will listen to your story – your own wants and needs, and help you on your journey in sourcing eyewear that will not only look good on your face, but also make you feel good about yourself. After all, eyewear can be likened to a piece of jewellery, and we believe enough time should be spent in choosing new eyewear which will help you get the best from your eyes and enhance your quality of life.

In addition to Masunaga, there are other high grade Japanese Titanium collections at Eyewise, such as Nine Eyewear, Gotti, Pro Design – all reputable European collections that have been carefully selected for clients of Eyewise.
