About eyeOs Eyewear, Our Values And Story
eyeOs ("eye-yos") The Name
eyeOs is the most exciting collection of reading glasses that’s just too cool for granny and too good to call readers. The Collection features fun and vibrant colors in cool shapes and edgy retro styles.
The ‘O’ in eyeOs represents the circle which is the universal symbol of perfection as well as the circle of life encompassing the past, present and the future.
eyeOs embodies the perfection and timelessness of the circle, with reading comfort and quality always at the core. Inspired by the past, the retro design reflects the present with edgy current touches that will still rock in the future with the collection's timeless design.
Our Focus (Pun Intended)
eyeOs eyewear brings a new level of quality and design-sophistication to market. eyeOs is fun and exciting and rivals the quality and design of the finest and most expensive prescription eyewear brands. Yet it is priced for the premium ready-made readers market. eyeOs is produced from the same material and components that is typically ONLY used in producing the most exclusive eyewear brands. And it's the ONLY reading eyewear made with prescription grade lenses with anti-reflection coatings. We understand that this may sound too good to be true, so we challenge you to see and feel the difference for yourself.
Creator and designer Sam Kotob has designed eyewear for over 20 years. This is what he says about the spark that inspired this new brand of premium reading eyewear: "eyeOs came about the way most of my best ideas do: while sharing delicious food and good wine with great friends. I can't take full credit for eyeOs - I owe a lot to my creative band of friends. Their contribution was two-fold in that they provided the original idea due to their need for cool premium reading eyewear and they also provided creative feedback throughout the 18 month development phase of the project. They are a group of sharp and very discerning individuals who refuse to be categorized by their 40+ age bracket. When you are 40+ going on 30, you don't want to wear anything on your face that says 'Granny'. Hence eyeOs reflects the lifestyle of successful, confident people who seek out the better things in life. So, cheers to my creative band of friends, who are the true inspiration for eyeOs and everything we represent". Sam still gathers his friend a couple of times a year for naming parties where the group contributes to naming the styles and colors and gives great input on the new styles.
