Granville’s Picks: The hippest of the hipster

Granville’s Picks: The hippest of the hipster

granvillepicks This week, Granville made his first pick in what he has coined, the hippest of the hipster frames.

We are excited to bring several new lines of frames – that Granville and Elizabeth hand-selected – home from the Vision Expo. And Granville’s pick this week is one of them!

Frank Custom, established in 2006, is an independent eyewear brand from Korea, featuring classic contemporary styles and a retro fashion range called Ironic Iconic.

The frame Granville picked from this uber modern eyewear line features a wood-like appearance. This wood style is a total trend in eyewear right now. It offers the unique look of wood with the livability of better, more wearable materials. Stylish, sleek and modern – these frames are perfect for men or women.

Sports Vision Safety Month

Sports Vision Safety Month

April is National Sports Vision Safety Month & it couldn’t be a more important topic to discuss as the spring sports season is well underway. Many sports pose serious risks to eyes and vision – but the top three most dangerous? Baseball, martial arts and basketball.

There are over 100,000 sports-related eye injuries per year, 42,000 of them end up in the ER and 13,500 of those injured go blind – 90% of these are preventable injuries by using proper eyewear.

The average cost of a basketball eye injury for a child under 15 is $3,996 – you could save over $3,00, and most likely more, by purchasing proper protective sports eyewear for your child.

To learn more about protective eyewear, schedule an appointment – we can help you discuss the best options for your child as well as fit them for protective gear.

For more info, browse the easy reference guide below.
