Silver Dollar Optical presents its Club Level Design UTX collection featuring slim profiles, solid construction, quality materials and fashionable styling that is designed to complement the personality of the wearer. With a profile of only 2.6 mm and a weight of only 10 grams on average, this collection of acetate frames is ultra-thin, ultra-light and ultra-durable. The complex process of compressing, hardening and strengthening this material is innovative. The end result is a frame that can be heated and adjusted just like any other acetate frame. The initial release includes six men/unisex styles. UTX targets the most discerning patients seeking the comfort of a plastic frame without the bulky look.
