Even with all the eyewear frames on the market, it’s sometimes challenging to find a fashionable and economically priced frame for the larger male patient who enters your optical shop. Avalon Eyewear has solved this dilemma with the release of its Le Grand collection.
BIGGER IS BETTER
The Le Grand collection consists of 16 styles featuring spring hinges for extra durability and contemporary styling in eyesizes ranging from 56mm to 60mm. Each frame is offered in three classic color options. While eight models come in 140mm or 145mm temple lengths, eight others are available in 150mm and 155mm lengths so really large men are assured a proper fit. And best of all, the frames wholesale for a price that’s affordable to nearly all patients.
THE NITTY GRITTY
Style No. 3703 (Colossus) is a full-rimmed monel featuring two-tone plating and masculine cross-grip embossing. Plaque detailing on the temples gives it an artistic appearance.
Avalon understands that bridges are not all textbook fits and Barry is the answer. This aviator-shape metal frame offers strap nosepads for a comfortable fit. Barry comes in 140mm and 145mm temple lengths.
What about the big guy who wants a plastic eyewear selection? Go right to Style No. 3710 (Titan), offered in 150mm temple length. This large handmade acetate selection features a lapel-like metal plaque trim. Its rectangular shape is progressive-friendly and boasts a modern look.
Style No. 3706 (Magnus) is a semi-rimless cord mounting selection using a combination of monel and acetate and featuring soft, embossed character lines on the endpieces. It comes in that difficult-to-find 155mm temple length and its 60mm-18mm eyesize is a great option for that hard-to-fit male patient.
The next time a really big man walks into your dispensary, don’t become concerned; just walk him over to the Le Grand collection.
