All Brands | Sama


With charity for a heart, technology for a brain, and fashion for a soul, Sama eyewear is an optical company unlike any other. With a portion of annual profits being donated to the Sam Vance Foundation, a non-profit organization out to prevent drug use among teens and young adults, wearers of this iconic brand directly contribute to spreading positivity and support to those who need it.

The World’s Defining Luxury Eyewear Brand

All Sama Eyewear frames are manufactured, assembled, and hand-finished in Japan. The focus on quality is unrelenting and unmatched. Sama Eyewear was the first brand to introduce 100% titanium frames, and they exclusively use high-end materials that are known for their durability (Japanese zyl acetate, titanium, nickel-free plating) and rarity (semi-precious and precious stones, Swarovski crystals).

Worn by A-list celebrities like Tom Cruise, Reese Witherspoon, and Sir Elton John, Sama Eyewear is perhaps the world’s defining luxury eyewear brand.
