West Middlesex, Pa. (February 5, 2010) – Purpose-driven eyewear company Eyes of Faith Optical has announced a partnership with RestoringVision.org, a non-profit organization which supplies reading glasses and sunglasses to groups going on missions abroad as well as those serving the underprivileged in the U.S.
“Eyes of Faith Optical is thrilled to announce our new partnership with RestoringVision.org,” says Jim Schneider, Director of Purpose, Eyes of Faith Optical. “For every pair of Eyes of Faith frames that are sold through our business partners, Eyes of Faith will donate a pair of reading glasses to faith-based mission groups. There are so many people in developing countries that can’t work or read their Bibles because they simply can’t see. RestoringVision.org has already touched the lives of 925,000 people with reading glasses or sunglasses. Together, we can change many lives by giving the gift of sight with Eyes of Faith.”
“We are very excited to have a partnership with Eyes of Faith,” says RestoringVision.org Director Mark Sachs. “Working together, we can transform lives by helping people experience clear vision.”
Eyes of Faith Optical is a new brand of eyewear that has Purpose, Passion, and Style. Through the Eyes of Faith Foundation, the eyewear brand expresses their Purpose by giving back. Since Eyes of Faith will donate 10% of gross sales each year, eyecare professionals can know that 10% of every single dollar will go to reputable organizations that support missions work. Eyes of Faith Optical’s Passion is the marketing and sales of distinctive eyewear that not only exhibits excellent craftsmanship and fashion-forward concepts, but also is a brand that inspires hope. Eyes of Faith Optical’s Style is already catching on as the first faith-based ophthalmic line to be distributed exclusively through eyecare professionals.
“As someone who has seen and lived every side of the optical industry, the purpose and style that comes with the Eyes of Faith brand will be something special,” comments Lloyd Yazbek, President and CEO of Central Optical, Inc. “Eyes of Faith is taking all the right steps to deliver a high-quality, stylish product that will fly off the boards.”
Since their brand identity launch at Disney’s Night of Joy, the Eyes of Faith line was unveiled at Vision Expo West in Las Vegas in October. The official product launch will kick off at SECO International next week in Atlanta. Coming soon are appearances at the Texas Optometric Association in Austin, and then it’s off to Vision Expo East in New York.
In the meantime, celebrities, eyecare professionals and consumers alike are clamoring for Eyes of Faith eyewear.
“Customers are telling us that Eyes of Faith is a product that has meaning to them and they’re embracing it,” says Schneider. “Everybody keeps asking, ‘When can we get the Eyes of Faith frames?’ They’re coming!”
