Fitting customers since 1984, Reliance is a fixture in the busy, ever-changing streets of Telawi – for years now, the family business has been hawking stellar brands and some one-of-a-kind frames, whether it’s for daily use, prescription, or as a fashion statement. Go on a deep dive into the drawers here to find a pair that’ll cause double takes on the sidewalks; they’re well-stocked with over 100 brands, so there’s a huge selection – from classics to more architectural designs, and funky frames as well as on-trend ones the likes of Dita, Lindberg, Linda Farrow, Givenchy and Victoria Beckham.
Here are some Time Out tips: avoid weekends when the store is most likely to pack out a full house, and always ask the attentive staff to help you sort out their massive collection of glasses, whether by function, style or price points. There’s also an optometrist on-site; you can perform an eye exam for free. Even if you don’t purchase a pair on the spot, they’ll save your prescription for when you do decide to get one.
