Aalen, Germany | 2 September 2019 | ZEISS Vision Care
Be it a handstand, pillow fight, schooltime shenanigans or a soccer tournament, kids’ eyewear has to fit like a glove, be able to withstand a few knocks, be safe and, ideally, grow as they do, all the while ensuring excellent vision. ZEISS has partnered with STEPPER EYEWEAR to launch its first-ever frames collection for kids, and it offers a solution that covers all the bases. It will be available from STEPPER EYEWEAR’s global sales and distribution channels starting September 2019.
All the ZEISS EYEWEAR Kids’ Collection models are easy to adjust and can be transformed into unique glasses thanks to some great little extras. Whether it’s a different color, temple length or nose pad, every detail can be selected and customized. Colorful little pins make every pair of glasses a real head-turner – which makes choosing a new pair of specs so much fun!
This is a promise ZEISS has always delivered, and kids will be delighted to discover that the company prides itself on its exclusive use of top-notch materials. The versatile TX5 material is hypoallergenic and friendly to sensitive young skin. And besides the screws in the rimless frames, all models are metal-free. Every curve and corner has been polished to keep kids safe and sound. The nose pads are all made of silicone, which makes them so much more comfy to wear. Finally, the ZEISS EYEWEAR Kids’ Collection frames have been optimized to ensure that kids get the most out of their perfectly aligned lenses.
