Willkommen to Dresden

We do things differently. We have one grand ambition – to make high quality glasses, priced so everyone can afford good vision.

We’ve designed our own simple and playful modular glasses system, and we manufacture our own, sustainable frames right here in Australia.

No Women’s, Men’s or Kid’s, simply modular parts in four sizes, a riot of colours with top notch Zeiss lenses. Create your own colour combo – as classic, understated or bright as you like.

Readers, multifocals, sunnies, prescription glasses & sunnies, contact lenses? We do the lot, without silly mark-ups. Complete prescription glasses and sunnies from just $49.

 

See one of our highly qualified optometrists or give us your prescription. We’ll cut your lenses and assemble your glasses in-store so you can see how simple and Schnell it is. No secret labs. No white coats. No great mystery.

If you’re in the neighbourhood come and see us. We’d love to help you in-store or online.

Our story

Here’s where we impress the pants off you with all our past experience in optics. But until we started Dresden, we didn’t have any. Zilch. We’re coming at things differently – from the same place as you.

Our founders Bruce and Jason are frustrated glasses-wearers. Let’s face it, glasses are annoying. You lose them, you break them. You scratch them. You forget them. They’re fragile, expensive and hopelessly inconvenient … [read more]

Local manufacturing

A desire to be closer to manufacturing has been fundamental in shaping Dresden. Our frames are designed and made by us right here in Australia in a zero waste, closed loop system. We injection mould a fully recyclable nylon which is ultra durable and beautifully lightweight. We are also experimenting with recycled plastics – think milk bottle and beer keg lids and plastic washed up from the ocean!
