About Topology Eyewear

Everyone is different, but off-the-shelf eyewear is made by the thousand for only one mythical person. That's why glasses always fit so badly, creating red marks, pinching, rubbing and slipping down your nose.

At Topology Eyewear, we believe that glasses should only be made one at a time, for one person at a time. That is why we have reinvented Made-to-Measure eyewear, for everyone. It's never been possible at scale before, until now.

Simply take a quick selfie from your iPhone and our patented technology takes intricate measurements of your face, right down to the unique contours of your nose. We then auto-fit all of our frame styles to you perfectly, allowing you to choose any combination of frame and color, before further customizing the proportions and fit. Order from your phone without any need to visit a store, and we deliver to you in a few weeks for the same price as regular designer frames.

We make every pair, one-at-a-time in San Francisco's Design District, from the highest quality Italian acetate or surgical stainless steel. Even your lenses will be customized, adjusting for the specific positioning on your face. So even with the same prescription, you get the best vision you have ever had.

Topology Eyewear is currently available only by invitational Beta, with full public launch expected later this year. Visit to request early Beta access.
