2009 BEST Optical Shop

Vizio Optic

Squint through those frumpy, outdated spectacles of yours and take a good look around this sleek Brookline Village shop. You’ll readily appreciate the cache of 1,000 or so designer frames, dotted with cult brands (Kamuro, Kata) and European faves (Face Face, Lafont). You’ll admire optometrist-owner Galina Rabkin’s staff of brainy-chic glamazons. And you’ll absolutely obsess over the one-of-a-kind photo booth providing a 360-degree view of how various pairs of glasses work with your face—something that, while it might seem gimmicky, can save hours of agonizing in hindsight.
