Dialing in the Future of OUR Eyewear



Eyewear was literally a wheel of fortune back in the day when American Optical was making the rounds delivering frames in a variety of colors just the way we Americans loved OUR specs. When it comes to Our Eyewear (specs with a legit optical heritage), that bright future seems ever so close and… anew. And don’t those color guide spots look amazing like guitar picks?! You know I’m lovin’ that as well.

An optical affair, so to speak, to remember: Christian Roth and Eric Domege move front and center on the cover of May 20/20 last year, personifying the power of Our Eyewear… past… present… and… future.
