Down Syndrome & Specs 4 Us

There is good news for people with Down syndrome who need eyeglasses and eyewear. About 5,000 newborns per year are diagnosed with Down syndrome in the U.S. and 87% of those will need corrective eyewear by age 3. Typically, these children have easily recognizable facial features, including very small noses, shortened depth from the eye socket to the ear and especially close set eyes with wide faces. As a result frames do not properly fit their face and typically slide down and the temples are usually bowed and uncomfortable. At D’Ambrosio Eye Care we carry Specs 4 Us, a frame line that addresses these concerns. Unlike other frames, the bridge is adjusted to fit on their smaller noses and the temples are designed to help keep the glasses from constantly slipping.

If you have any questions or need more information on Specs 4 Us or other types of eyewear frames, please stop by the optical departments at any location of D’Ambrosio Eye Care or call at 800-325-3937, visit D’Ambrosio Eye Care or
