Frame of the Week: Etnia KIDS Gondor Eyeglasses

For many people, a new year doesn’t begin in January, but starts when the kids go back to school. Summer is over, school supplies are purchased, the bus is disappearing in the distance. One supply that often goes overlooked at this time is a quality pair of kids glasses. Parents should make it part of their annual back-to-school routine to get little ones’ eyes checked so they have a productive and successful year in class. Oftentimes, kids don’t realize that there is anything wrong with their eyes because they just adapt to the world around them – it’s all they know – so regular exams while their eyes are still developing is a must. That part may not be so fun for them, but if they need glasses, picking out a frame can make the whole experience.

Etnia Gondor kids eyeglasses

One of our little friends at Vizio Optic recently got a new pair of Etnia kids glasses, made from the same high-quality materials and with the same attention to detail as the adult collection. He picked out Etnia Gondor eyeglasses in blue with white accents, a frame made of lightweight metal to help lessen the distraction of wearing the new accessory. Adjustable nose pads keep the frame nice and snug as well to help avoid accidents.

Gondor also features plastic tips on the arms so the glasses sit comfortably over his ears. It is also offered in black with small orange accents.

LINDBERG Eyewear: From Rome to Iceland

Have you ever considered making your LINDBERG glasses frame even more personal with your name engraved? Not only do you have a beautiful designer product made from some of the most innovative minds in the world, but it is exclusively and uniquely yours – who wouldn’t want that?

Engraved LINDBERG Eyeglasses

In addition to such an engraving, each LINDBERG frame bears an individual identification number. What’s it for? Well, let this recent story tell you, about how the special ID number helped a little girl from Iceland get her lost glasses back:

Five-year-old Olafia Bella lost her LINDBERG Kid glasses while visiting Rome. Luckily, someone found them and handed them in to an optician in the area. He then called LINDBERG in Denmark, who were able to identify that the frame had been sold by a shop in Iceland. The little girl’s glasses were returned to LINDBERG, who then sent them on to the shop where they were purchased.

The Icelandic shop’s owner was delighted to be able to hand the lost glasses over to the little girl and her mother. As he ex- plains, “Olafia Bella came in to get her lost designer glasses, bringing us flowers and a card, so sweet and sincere. The staff in our shop that day had tears in their eyes when she left, smiling to us. I’ve always said that no other eyewear brand is as concerned about its customers as LINDBERG – especially when children are involved.”

Olafia Bella’s thank-you card bore the words,

Dear staff in Iceland, Denmark, and Rome, thank you for sending my glasses back home to me here in Iceland. I’m so happy now. Signed Olafía Bella

This touching story about the glasses that got lost, but were recovered and returned to their rightful owner was featured in the Morgunbladid national newspaper in Iceland.

If you’ve ever lost a pair of designer eyeglasses, you can understand Olafia’s and her family’s stress upon discovering they were gone. An investment lost and a prized accessory gone, we’ve all been there before. But with LINDBERG’s special engraving services, you can avoid such a financially and emotionally stressful event.

‘Alma Gets Glasses’ Gives Children a Positive Experience

Alma Gets Lindberg Kids Glasses

Alma Gets Glasses is a wonderful children’s book that a Danish teacher, Tina Torp Aaby, wrote when she discovered her own 3-year-old daughter needed glasses, an experience that many parents can relate to, especially with the increase of technology usage in the younger generations.

As the author explains in an interview, “The book describes everything that is fun and positive about having to wear glasses, and we follow Alma’s first visit to the ophthalmologist and the optician in order to help open children’s eyes to what actually happens.”

Alma, now four years old, chose her very own LINDBERG glasses. Just like anyone searching for the perfect frame, it took a while to find the ones she liked because, as Torp Aaby says, they are “very particular.”

“For us, it’s so important that people notice and appreciate Alma’s face – not just her glasses. It’s also important that her specs can take a battering, and not hold her back when she’s playing. And they also have to look cool, of course!”

Parents who have to help their children through getting glasses for the first time may want to pick up this book from LINDBERG, as it will make the experience more positive for little ones. Alma Gets Glasses makes getting glasses seem less overpowering for your child, and the story about Alma gets kids actively involved in the whole process of getting fitted for glasses.
