Why Us

Our Story


Born and bred East Hawthorn, Dr. Jess Chester schooled at Bialik College and went to The University of Melbourne. After graduating, she worked in the country to diversify her skills and experience. Although she loved working in the country, Dr. Chester returned to Hawthorn East to get married to her long-standing boyfriend Sam Chester. Back in Melbourne, while working in the CBD at a trendy boutique eyewear optometry practice, Dr. Chester decided that her local community in Hawthorn East deserved exposure to both globally sourced and handmade eyewear too. Together, the recently married team Sam (Management Consultant, Amatuer Footballer,  with a passion for delivering great customer service) and Jess (Optometrist and ex-model, fashion lover) created Chester Eyewear.

For exceptional service, a good eye for fashion and fitting glasses to suit any face shape and complexion, and to see glasses ranges that are sourced globally, come in or call to book an appointment at Chester Eyewear.

Our Stakeholders

We consider our stakeholders in every decision we make.


We try to treat our customers the way they want to be treated. We strive to provide the best eyewear sourced globally for you to enjoy locally.

Furthermore we just love giving you the best service possible.


We admit we cant be the best at everything, which is why we have strong relationships with our suppliers. Whether actively searching for the best brands around the world or ensuring we have invested in the best lens supplier.


We believe we have a responsibility to our locally community and should serve that community though pro bono activity or by sponsoring Melbourne based charities.
