Marchon Eyewear launches U-Turn, a collection of eyewear that gives individuals two wardrobe options in one, simply by turning the temple. Targeted to a broad age range with styles for both single-vision wearers and presbyopes, the premiere collection consists of seven styles (four women’s and three men’s) in metal and metal/zyl combos. Each design is created to be versatile for the wearer and available in modern palettes and distinctive patterns with intriguing details.

“By combining this revolutionary patented technology with high-style, we are providing our customers with great options for all of their patients,” says Jeff Stern, vice president, brand: Marchon, Flexon and Disney. “With this collection, the patient can go from business attire to a fun look with a simple pull and turn of the temple. And because consumers have altered their purchasing behavior during the past year, it helps that the collection is very affordable. This price point should prove beneficial to both ECPs and their patients.”

Merchandising materials include an eight-place rotating display unit with display panel, set of countercards and mini-catalog.
