Chicago Public Schools Vision Program Chooses Classic Optical To Improve On-Site Eyeglass Delivery System

Chicago Public Schools Vision Program Chooses Classic Optical To Improve On-Site Eyeglass Delivery System

Earlier this year, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) Vision Program chose Classic Optical to improve its on-site eyeglass delivery system to correct students’ vision problems and equip them for success in school and in life. On June 4th this innovative vision care model for CPS students reached a milestone as the program dispensed its 50,000th pair of eyeglasses. Classic Optical Laboratories, Inc. (Classic Optical) is helping to change lives and improve learning for Chicago Public School (CPS) children through an innovative partnership with the Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF) and Modern Optical International (Modern Optical), delivering the most precious gift — vision. Recognizing that vision deficiencies are a barrier to learning, in 2014, the CPS Office of Student Health and Wellness (OSHW) issued an RFI to search for an Optical Lab Partner that could provide quality eyeglasses to all CPS students in need. Furthermore, they sought a Lab that could establish an efficient delivery system, as well as ensure rapid turnaround on the prescribed eyewear. Classic Optical, one of the nation’s preeminent ophthalmic fabrication laboratories, met all the specified criteria and was selected...

SPY Inc. Reports Net Sales of $9.1 million for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2015

SPY Inc. Reports Net Sales of $9.1 million for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2015

SPY Inc. (OTCBB: XSPY) today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2015. First quarter sales were $9.1 million in 2015, a decrease of 0.7% or $0.1 million less than in the first quarter of 2014. The decrease in our net sales was primarily driven by lower sales of our sunglasses, partially offset by higher sales in our goggles and prescription frame product lines. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 54.8% for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, compared to 52.0% for the same period in 2014. “I am quite happy with our results this first quarter, with only a slight dip in our sales trend despite the continued contraction of the action sports retail sector and the detrimental shift in global exchange rates,” said Michael Marckx, SPY president and CEO. “In fact, excluding those areas impacted by the very negative exchange rate changes, our business would have once again enjoyed substantial growth in the first quarter. Despite these challenges we achieved an improved operating profit margin driven by stronger gross margins, which were made possible by the success of our newer premium products across all categories. We are very excited about the increases...

ProDesign Introduces Fourth Dimension Style 4717-19

ProDesign Introduces Fourth Dimension Style 4717-19

The new Fourth Dimension 4717-19 is a collection of colorful sanded acetate frames based on a unique new way of handling the acetate material. To make a product, with less material consumption, this project was hatched from the original idea of using cut outs from front production, chopping them up into bits and pieces and mixing them all together again, and then reuse them for temples. The fronts have rivets as a retro reference, and they are all kept in calm sanded solid colors that complement the multicolor temples.

Aega: Playing With Color

Aega: Playing With Color

The iridescent blue shades of the Morpho Aega, a butterfly found on the continent of South America, were the inspiration behind Morel’s Aega concept for the Koali collection. The presence of the Aega is omnipresent in every aspect of the frame. The grace of the butterfly is expressed in the overall style of the frame from the contemporary eye shapes, to the delicately thought-out temple, and a concealed fl exhinge system. Aluminum gives this work three dimensions with a twist to refl ect the triangular wings of the butterfly which is emphasized by a contrasting line as a reminder of Aega’s shape. Metallic tones use light to mimic the shades of the tiny glittering scales which cover Aega’s wings. While blue is the color most closely associated with Aega (blue butterflies are male), all the colors are used to create unrivaled harmonies with radiant hues as well as pastels for brilliant combinations of color. Aega is available in four stainless steel models (three semi-rimless, two full rimmed) and two models with double-layered handcrafted acetate fronts. For more information visit www.morel-france.com

Prodesign Denmark Features Essential Collection Models 1289-1294

Prodesign Denmark Features Essential Collection Models 1289-1294

Monocolor fools around with the very important colorblocking tendencies. After decades of exploring all kinds of color combination, we took the completely opposite approach. Only 1 color, but let that one color be strong, that is the theme for this collection. We have mixed highly commercial shapes with more unique, but they all have in common, that the tops have some volume, while the bottom is kept quite thin. The combination between the rounded finish of the edges makes this product extremely nice to hold and wear. All made in stainless steel. Plenty of colors and shapes, some in two sizes.
