Every person is different, yet all other eyewear is made as if everyone were identical. That's why most glasses don’t fit most people, and is the real reason your glasses pinch, squeeze or slide down your nose.
At Topology we craft premium eyeglasses and sunglasses for every ONE face, not everyone’s face. We call it custom-tailored eyewear.
We design, engineer, and craft your glasses based on your unique facial measurements, your distinct stylistic choices, and your personal needs and preferences. Our eye glasses and sunglasses are made one at a time, for one person at a time, from scratch in San Francisco.
Using just your iPhone camera, the Topology app creates a millimeter-accurate virtual 3D model of your face. It analyzes more than 2,000 measurements of your unique features to create custom glasses that fit perfectly. We guarantee a perfect fit for any face or your money back.
Getting your perfect glasses or sunglasses is easy:
• Take a video selfie using the Topology app.
• 3D imaging captures more than 2,000 measurements of your face, and tailors a virtual frame to fit you perfectly
• Select Italian acetate or stainless steel glasses in a variety of colors.
• Preview and adjust the style of the frame to your liking including the height, width, and drop position.
• Choose between clear lenses, tinted lenses, mirrored sunglasses, or transition lenses.
• Share your designs with friends and get feedback via messaging or social media.
• Choose your prescription type: single vision lenses, progressive lenses, or bifocals.
• Select your payment option: priority order (pay upfront) or try before you buy (10% refundable deposit).
• Checkout faster with Apple Pay.
• Questions? Communicate directly with a human Topology expert without leaving the app.
Topology Eyewear is the ideal choice for anyone currently paying more than $500 for “designer” stock eyewear that doesn’t fit. With frames priced at $349, custom-tailored eyewear is simpler and more attainable than ever before.
All lenses come with standard scratch-resistant, anti-reflective, and hydrophobic coatings. High-index material is included at no extra cost. Additionally, blue light filtering and polarized lenses are also available upon request.
Your custom eyewear will arrive in a few weeks and fit perfectly, just as you designed them. If they don’t or if they need to be returned for any reason, just let us know. Our Perfect-Fit Guarantee gives you 30 days to send them back for a replacement or full refund.
We are opening with a new face ;) and clarifying aspects of our checkout process.
Ratings and Reviews
While standard eyeglasses generally fit me well, I was interested in trying Topology glasses. I am very happy that I did! The glasses fit well and look equal or better than other luxury eyeglasses that I’ve tried on or owned. You are getting that quality (e.g., Italian Acetate) for less money, at least compared to other glasses I had been looking at. The custom fitting and design is a bonus. This is why I would recommend Topology.
As far as process, I was pretty pleased. It was unclear to me how perfect your face scan needed to be, and so I rescanned three times to ensure it was a good scan. I positioned my phone and arms on a counter and kneeled to minimize movement during the scan - I think this worked well. As far as frames and colors, the rendering gives you some perspective, but the photographs were really helpful in understanding the actual design details and true colors of the frames. From the time I ordered to receiving my glasses, it took 13 days.
If I have any critiques, it is that they have a limited number of frame choices at this point. That said, there still is a good amount of variety, and the multitude of color choices greatly help. Ultimately, I am very pleased with my choice because the color I selected helped compensate for some some frame design details I was unsure of.
Hope this is helpful to those looking for a new pair of high-end glasses!

Thanks so much for the great feedback. We are actively working on new styles and colors and look forward to sharing these new options with you soon.
If you're a control freak like me, you'll love Topology eyewear. I had a fun time designing my own glasses. I had over $500 left in my flex health spending account so I wanted a high quality pair of frames. Topology fell in to my lap as a Instagram add and their platform caught my eye. I downloaded the app and designed my frames. It was super fun and coming from San Francisco, I knew the glasses were going to be high quality. The whole process was fun and not a headache like going to a store and trying on a plethora of germy frames only to choose something that's sorta okay. You design the frames to a 3-D model of your own face, Id wish I had more on my flex health card, I'd love to design 5 more pairs. The best part is how light weight the frames are. I now don't get pressure headaches anymore, like I did with my $99 frames because they are so heavy. You get what you pay for and my Topology glasses are high quality.
pretty slick app
I haven’t actually bought glasses using the app, but the way the app let you preview glasses on your face is pretty neat, because your can swipe your virtual head left and right and the virtual glasses follow accurately. It really looks like you are wearing them. It works far better than the websites where you upload a selfie and it superimposes the glasses on you. It also has a neat feature where you can adjust them wider/narrower and taller/shorter. The suggested width and height looked dead on for me; it’s good to try the extremes because you can see what will look clownish so you know what to avoid (sometimes you need to see some really horrible ones to feel better about the ones you can’t decide between). Hopefully they can add more frame styles in the future, but this does give you a pretty decent idea of what looks good or not.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
