Frames For Faces of Any Shape

Frames today come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Despite many young adults using them as a way to “fit in,” “look cool,” or even “look smart,” the utilitarian aspect of corrective lenses is still at the forefront of the industry due to the continuous increase in the need to correct vision impairments. But in 2022, eyewear has a new emerging market that is taking over the industry, the need for extra large frames.

Did you know that there are over 500,000+ google searches for “wide glasses frames” every single month? Probably not, but that number amounts to over six million yearly searches for larger than standard frame sizes, so trust us when we say, wide frames are here to stay!

As crazy as it is, the demand for wide frames actually comes from an anthropological change in people over the last century. Over the last 100 years, the average human’s head is consistently getting bigger. Plenty of people tend to shed light on the matter that we might all be getting smarter, which in part is true, but still, with the development of faster and more efficient food supply chains as well as the widespread access to modern medicine, the human race is, well, growing.

This growth is essential to the optometric world because people are the customers. When the average person grows, the demand for new markets increases, and this is that need for extra large frames!

A&A Optical’s XXL Eyewear is engineered for the man with special fit needs. Not only are these glasses created with wider bridges and longer temples in mind, as well as ample headspace with eye sizes from 55-63mm, but they also feature classic, athletic and uptown styles. These frames are available in titanium, acetate, semi-rimless, and combination styles to fit the fashion needs of any man who requires a little wider frame, and soon, that will be mostly men.

If 177 million Americans are using some sort of eyewear, the need to cater to all of them, especially the customers with specific special fit needs, is critical for any optometric office!
