What eyewear should be.

SPEX By Ryan challenges conventional thoughts on what an eyewear store should be. With two locations on the edge of Regina’s trendy Cathedral Village neighbourhood and the beautiful Riversdale area of Saskatoon, our teams are ready to help you find the perfect pair of frames. The eyewear selection is an eclectic blend of the world’s latest trends and remarkable materials.

SPEX By Ryan is your destination to break free from the pedestrian, mundane eyewear available everywhere, and to enter into a new eyewear possibility. Before you buy that next pair of glasses, please do yourself a favour and talk to the knowledgeable staff at both Regina and Saskatoon locations. Their passion and knowledge are tough to beat, and they truly enjoy building long-term relationships. If you are having problems with your existing eyewear purchased elsewhere, see us for an evaluation. We look forward to helping you solve any issues with your eyewear! We want to be your eyewear store!

Bobbi has 2 teenage girls and is looking forward to the day she might know a thing or two again in their eyes.  With her oldest recruited to U of S Huskies Soccer Team, the soccer pitch is where she will likely be found most of her free time.

Bobbi has been working in the industry since 1992 and became a licensed optician in 1994.

Bobbi was more than thrilled to become a part owner  with Ryan in the Saskatoon Store. Fully aware that this is an eyewear niche that has been missing in the Saskatoon market for quite some time. Bobbi cannot wait to start building some long term relationships with the SPEX families, listening and truly getting to know each client that walks through the door is truly what fuels her passion for the industry.

Camping, quadding, and spending time with her family is all she needs to re charge.

Come visit Bobbi at our Saskatoon location!
