Glasses to fit any face

Posted on 26th June 2012

These frankly quite awful looking glasses are actually quite innovative and may be coming to a shelf near you.

Ron Arad’s A-frame series are so adjustable they can fit almost any face. The nose piece hides a clever hinge which you can use to move the lenses up or down or in and out freely. The hinges on the sides (legs) are similarly adjustable.

Most frames we stock come in multiples sizes and the dispensing team are experts in choosing the right shape and size and then adjusting frames so we rarely have a problem, but it will be interesting to see how this concept develops in future frame designs.

My feeling is that these are unlikely to grace the stands of Cameron Optometry and I doubt many in Edinburgh would embrace their quirkiness so it might be some time till we are stocking them at CamOpt.
