Our Managing Director has been on a constant search for suppliers who offer a range and selection of frames targeted at this specialised market since her son was diagnosed as having a congenital cataract at three days old.
We have found that most of the frame related research and advances come from abroad. This posed a great problem in sourcing individual frame styles in a suitably short time.
We also found that the time between diagnosis, any required surgical procedure and provision of corrective eyewear is critical so we hold a substantial stock of frames with the potential of next day delivery.*
Our Objective is to source the best frames for babies and young children so that they love to wear them, and parents love the way they look in them.
We are in regular contact with Hospital Opticians and Ophthalmologists to ensure that the frames we source are fit for purpose.
