The moment you cross the threshold of this modern edgy boutique,you will sense a difference. It feels as though this experience is to be more of an adventure than an ordinary visit to the optical department at your doctor’s office.Sleek and contemporary, warm and inviting are words that best describe Glance. From the first greeting by friendly professionals, to the incredible array of unique and dynamic frames, the passion for optics here is immediately apparent.

With their combined quarter century in the field of optics, Glance owners Lisa and Bob Martinsson bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to their growing business in Salem and Lake Oswego. “We are known for our innovative frames from around the world but more and more people are seeking us out for our technologically advanced digital lenses, which are equally or more important,” says Lisa. “Most people think all lenses are created equal. Not so!” She continues, “Once you’ve experienced our HD lenses, you’ll never go back!”
