    Kuske Eyewear – now in Napier

    Formerly Swain & Matthews Optometrists, Kuske exclusively stocks beautifully designed and meticulously manufactured eyewear that accentuates the personality of the people who wear their glasses.

    New Zealand’s Art Deco capital and its people are synonymous with good taste, great lifestyle and an eye for the finer things in life so we look forward to providing the people of Hawke’s Bay with bolder and more expressive frames that promise to turn heads.

    We look forward to introducing you to the bold world of Kuske, where you can be unapologetically yourself.

    At Kuske Eyewear, our passion and purpose is to provide a curated selection of independent, handcrafted eyewear brands with a focus on individualised fitting and consultation. We are ‘left of ordinary’ and guaranteed to turn heads.

    We pride ourselves on working with small, family-owned eyewear design and manufacturing suppliers who share our passion for beautifully designed and meticulously manufactured frames. You will not see mass-produced frames here, only works of art in eyewear form.


    A frame and lens styling consultation at Kuske is a team effort. Our focus is to accentuate the personality of the people who wear our frames so we strive to make our styling consultations a very personalised, hands-on experience.

    Bring in your current glasses and prescription (or we can organise an eye test with one of our professional optometrists) with you when you visit and we will match you with your beautiful, new eyewear.

    We provide exceptional eyewear to those who want to break free from conformity and wear something a bit different. Come in and see us to find the perfect pair for you.
