Why Celebrate National Eyewear Day? For anyone that requires prescription lenses to see, you know how much of an impact your glasses have on your daily life. Not only does eyewear help us see better, but it also makes us who we are.
Over the years, eyewear has transformed from a visual aid into a genuinely iconic fashion accessory. Eyewear can define, outline, and punctuate a personality. It can complete an outfit and complement a person’s facial shape.
Eyewear has grown in popularity and has become a massive part of our lives, which is why Zyloware has
recognized this significance and created National Eyewear Day.
Each year on June 6th Zyloware celebrates all things eyewear. We toast to frames in all shapes and sizes and rejoice all things SPEC-TACULAR! The mission is simple: Helping people see a beautiful day every day!
