About the Tory Burch brand
Tory Burch was established by an American fashion designer of the same name. Tory Burch studied art history and worked with designers Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang before opening her own New York City boutique in the early 2000s.
Tory Burch began with two now classics: the iconic Reva Ballet Flats — named for Burch’s mother — and the ever-popular Tory Tunic. The brand now includes eyewear, clothing, fragrances, handbags, jewelry, shoes and even home goods.
Tory Burch is considered an “attainable luxury brand” that reflects the personal style of the founder and designer.

A bohemian, preppy look
Bold use of color
Timelessness and versatility
In 2008, Tory Burch won the Accessories Designer of the Year award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA). Tory Burch also made the Forbes list of America’s Self-Made Women 2020 and Power Women 2020.
In 2009, eyewear company Luxottica signed a licensing agreement with Tory Burch to design, manufacture and distribute sunglasses and prescription glasses under the Tory Burch and TT brands.

Tory Burch glasses
If you’re a fan of the brand’s all-American, bohemian-preppy style, consider Tory Burch designer frames for your prescription eyeglasses.
It may be helpful to have an eye care professional help you choose frames that are the right size and shape for your face and will be a good fit for your prescription — for example, if you have a strong prescription or need progressive lenses.
Tory Burch eyeglasses are available in a selection of frame shapes that include:
You can get Tory Burch frames in plastic, metal and hypoallergenic materials, and they also come in a wide range of colors.
Once you’ve picked out your Tory Burch glasses frames, your eye care professional can help you select the right lenses. You’ll need to choose a material, such as polycarbonate or high-index plastic — which are thin and light but may cost more than some other lens materials.
Then you can decide on lens treatments, such as anti-scratch or anti-reflective coating, blue light protection, UV protection or Transitions photochromic lenses that darken in sunlight.
