In addition to providing great vision and comfort, eyeglass frames are a fun way to show individuality, creativity, and style. They are available in all sizes, shapes, and colors to fit any face – almost. But what if your ears are a bit lower than average? Or your nasal bridge is flatter? Most standard frames cannot be adjusted to comfortably accommodate these unique facial features even in the hands of the most experienced optician. In order to serve those patients, we at Aggieland Spectacles are proud to offer a frame line called SPECS4US. See details from their website below:
SPECS4US was created and founded in 2004, by Maria Dellapina, a single mother of four with more than 30 years of experience in the optical field. The name SPECS4US stands for Superior Precision Eyewear for Children who are Special.
Maria’s youngest daughter Erin was diagnosed with Down syndrome at birth. After several frustrating years of searching for an eyeglass frame that would fit Erin properly, and finding out that nearly 87% of children with Down syndrome will need glasses by the time they enter preschool, Maria decided to combine her passion as a mother, with her knowledge of eyeglasses, and SPECS4US was formed.
Erin’s World is a frame line designed to accommodate and fit the features of children and adults with Down syndrome, as well as other individuals with unique facial features. This innovative eyeglass design includes a bridge which is adjusted to properly fit a low nasal bridge and temples (or “arms” of the glasses) which are modified to keep the glasses from constantly slipping down.
Many of our patients have found these frames to be an excellent solution to their previous glasses frustrations. We would love to help you experience them, too!
