Virginie Delamare - Optical Dispenser

Virginie Delamare

Optical Dispenser

Virginie Delamare is an optical dispenser and a fashion stylist. French, Virginie has a fashion background working with top end Parisian designers. Virginie encourages our patients to explore new shapes and styles that may be a little unconventional. Similar to clothing and fashion, we are instinctely guided by some basic "rules" when selecting the perfect frame for each face. As is also the case with fashion, these rules were made to be broken. The fit is essential and, of course, confidence is key.
