Georges Laoun

Plateau & Downtown
Eyeglasses Store

The glasses at this Montreal optician are wearable works of art, so it’s fitting that one of the two locations is at the city’s Museum of Fine Arts. The family-run stores offer gracious, knowledgeable service, often from a member of the Laoun clan, and a handpicked, curated line of eye-catching frames. The collections tend toward the colorful and the quirky, with an eye for handmade frames from designers like Thierry Lasry, Anne et Valentin, and British duo Kirk & Kirk.
