When shopping for prescription eyeglasses, customers are faced with a plethora of design choices. Each spectacle frame is made in a particular shape, size, and color. Choosing the right frame selection is important. The prescription and lens quality are critical for providing the vision we need to function in our daily lives. The frames that hold these lenses become an accessory that represents both our style and our personality.
While many customers find the task of shopping for the perfect frame exciting, some find it down right daunting. Fortunately, at Optix Eyecare, our New York State licensed opticians are here to help. I consider opticians the experts in fitting patients into the appropriate eye wear. Experienced opticians have “an eye” for choosing spectacle frames based on customer’s style, prescription, and budget.
Spectacle frames, like anything else, come in many different brands. Its interesting to know many well-known designers also have a long established history of designing eyeglasses. Gucci, for example, was founded in 1921 in Florence by an iconic design family. Within their line of frames, Gucci offers a unique, classic style decorated with pieces of Grace Kelly’s scarf embedded into the frame itself. LaFont is a French design company with ninety years of experience. Their frames are custom made and are never retired. LaFont prides itself on its precision of assembly, attention to detail, and balance of design and uniformity when creating its frames. It takes between 8 and 14 weeks to completely manufacture each pair of glasses!
