Current Stock:


THIS STYLE IS FOR MEDIUM SIZED FACES.  If you want a larger sized frame please look at our Turtle Island in black color with has been sized up for larger faces.

This glass is rich in story and tradition. Artist Donald Chretien, masterfully incorporates the Ojibwe turtle design onto this classic style.  Vibrant and incredibly detailed in design Turtle Island is the name of North America according to some Indigenous groups.

The name Turtle Island comes from First Nations folklore. Many storytellers have different versions of the story, but they mostly agree on how the turtle is part of the creation story. Many First Nations Peoples hold special respect for the fabled turtle that, according to folklore sacrificed his life so that the Earth’s people could have a second chance.

This new frame is unisex, lightweight with adjustable nosepads and able to accommodate progressive lenses.  Available in a tasteful satin blue front (medium size) or matte black (large size).

Every pair of optical frames comes with an embossed hard case and microfibre cleaning cloth, and 2 year warranty.

Partial proceeds from the sale of all AYA eyewear and accessory items are donated communities in need.

    I like these glasses very much. The only disappointing feature is that the Turtle Island design on the arms of the frames does not stand out as shown in the ad. The dark blue colour is kind of lost on the black background. I expected it to look more like the picture when I ordered. However the fit and the quality of the lenses are excellent, and the price was about half what I would have paid at a local major brand store.

    I tried them on as soon as they arrived, and was thrilled with how they look and fit. My husband also loves his pair of the Bear. Can hardly wait to see the optometrist now!

    I have had many compliments on my new frames! The eye doctor even asked for the website when I told him there were many more and I had trouble choosing one. Will definitely order again when I need new ones,.

    I love my new glasses from Claudia Allan. I ordered the Turtle Island, and Palmer frames, and both are stunning. I can’t wait to get prescription lenses put in them, so I can show them off to everyone. This company is so great, I’ve already ordered from them again.
