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.

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.
After multiple tries, I couldn’t get the app to take the selfie for virtual try on with my face square so no matter how they scaled the eyewear, I couldn’t tell if it fit. The problem is I’m not wearing my glasses so I can’t see where the face circle is. I see like 5 of them so I have no idea if I’m facing forward and my head is straight or not. It turns out I’m absolutely not. It needs to do some better preprocessing to pick the forward facing headshot or it needs to make the target circle much larger. I’m using an iPhone 8 Plus so there’s room. Regardless, there wasn’t much customization you could really do. There was no way to make the frame less chunky. The Sansone frame looks fine full size but on me it’s a big wad. It doesn’t look like the frame edge thickness is shrunk proportional for a smaller face. Plus the color choices were very limited (12 for stainless frames) and all looked hideous. I had such hopes. I tried live chat through the app for advice but no one was there.

Sorry to have disappointed here. We are grateful for your feedback. Regarding the scanning experience, I have passed on your recommendations to our design team for them to address at the next opportunity. Regarding the frame thickness, this IS something we can resolve for you as a special request, but it is is an advance setting that is not available in the normal app. If you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the in-app chat, we will be happy to take on this custom work for your. Our current support hours are M-F 9a-6p West Coast time, and we are able to respond within a couple of hours. We hope to also extend this provision in the near future.
