351887LOGOWhen you have an entire family wearing glasses, it can become a central ‘focus.’ Someone has always misplaced them, a little one does not want to don her new eyewear, or the worst—they are constantly slipping down the bridge of the nose and falling off when you appear down. It appears I always have a note to have a few sort of maintenance performed on eyewear. It is a precarious business as without glasses, we cannot function throughout our day. Let’s not actually get begined on prescription sunglasses!

Eyewear can in addition be a lot of fun in terms of style yet, ‘building’ your appear. The challenge is pulling it all together in terms of function, style, and most of all—fit. If you don’t have a excellent fit, not much else matters. And thanks to 3D printing, which one-size-fits-all world is rapidly fading. Whilst there are a wide range of benefits to 3D printing, only about all of them can apply to the eyewear industry, most especially customization, coupled with excellent affordability.

And while revealing up to work with a rad new pair of 3D printed glasses has an allure all of its own, now thanks to a partnership between Eyenavision and Roger Bacon Eyewear, you can have it all.

“Our goal is to provide folks with modern, new eyewear at a practical price,” Colleen Zewe of Eyenavision told 3DPrint.com. “The most part of 3D printed glasses is which they can be custom-made to fit the customer’s face. Each pair is one-of-a-kind and fits the wearer’s face perfectly.”

UntitledAs the exclusive distributor of Roger Bacon Eyewear, Eyenavision can be sending out keep displays and accepting frame orders this summer of independent optical retailers in the US.

“We are elated to partner with Eyenavision to roll out Roger Bacon Eyewear in the United States,” said Pieter Jonkheer, CEO of Roger Bacon. “We appear forward to extra
products and showcases which can reinforce our understanding which our customers should feel one with their eyewear.”

The process is really scientific in terms of building certain you have the exact fit for your face, with Roger Bacon Eyewear offering the initially ‘made to meacertain’ 3D printed collection on the market through retailers. Because every face is one-of-a-kind, the Roger Bacon team believes which every pair of glasses should in addition be. To see which take place, they created a proprietary process via a biometric scanner attached to an iPad. With this, opticians are able-bodied to achieve exact meacertainments and create custom 3D printed frames.

Eyewear care providers who provide Roger Bacon Eyewear can have both scanner and visualization units which allow customers to see any frame in the collection via their own image on an LCD display. There are 20 frame shapes to select of already, every on the market in 10 colors, with a continuously new donate of frames being introduced. The entire process is streamlined for everyone involved, with orders and so placed on the same iPad through the Roger Bacon cloud-based ordering process. Once frames are custom 3D printed, parts are provided to Eyenavision for assembly, final inspection, and distribution.

“Retailers can be truly astonished at the Roger Bacon Eyewear process,” said Joseph Zewe, CEO of Eyenavision. “Not only is the in-keep experience one-of-a-kind, but the fit and high end of the frames is exceptional.”

UntitledOnce again, with 3D printing, a new next is being shaped for another industry as retailers offering Roger Bacon Eyewear won’t be required any longer to spend sizeable amounts of their budget on frame ‘buy-ins’ or be inconvenienced with attempting to exchange frames which were poor sellers. Whilst samples can be on hand, the actual creations are only downloaded to the iPad.

“Roger Bacon represents a whole new category of eyewear and an opportunity for early adopters to differentiate their practice of the competition,” states Zewe.

Representatives of Eyenavision and the founders of Roger Bacon, Pieter Jonckheer and Jan-Berend Zweerts, can be demonstrating the Roger Bacon process at Vision Expo East, the world’s sizeablest eyewear and eyecare show—to be held in New York City at the Javits Center of April 14-17. They can begin accepting pre-orders of retailers at the Expo, and can begin shipping in keep display units and accepting frame orders on July 1, 2016.
