Division Optical Brings Luxury Eyewear to Lake Minnetonka

For the past 14 years, an optometry shop has been a fixture of the Wayzata Village Shops. When the opportunity came up to purchase Latham Optical, certified optometrist Clayton Carlson did so, and updated the space. Division Optical opened last December. It specializes in frames from around the world, including high-end designs from Japan and Italy. Carlson’s nickname is “the eyeglass whisperer.” Using up-to-date technology is also a priority and every lens purchased comes with a two-year warranty. With a boutique-like feel and attentive service, Division Optical is hoping to breathe some fresh air into the local eyewear niche. Need some new frames this winter? Us, too.
