OVVO Optics is a special line of glasses that we carry at our Leawood Office. Our new OVVO display in our office features an eyeglass frame holding a 45lb weight! The glasses are light weight and extremely durable. They are available in mens, womens and kids ophthalmic and sunglass styles. The company manufactures all of its glasses in Germany and Poland. They feature a unique European design and asthetic. Although the frames were first introduced to the US in 2011, the company has been creating innovative glasses since the Cold War Era.
WHAT SETS OVVO FRAMES APART? In addition to their unique design, OVVO frames are made of an incredibly innovative material. Made of a mix of titanium and stainless steel, the frames are completely hypoallergenic. This unique material allows the frames to weigh under 0.6 ounces. The frames are able to be bent completely flat and hold up to 90 pounds without breaking. Their website boasts that the frames are “virtually indestructible and [the] highly flexible […] OVVO Optics-patented screw-free hinge can withstand more than 300,000 rotations (an equivalent of 205 years of usage) and reveal no changes in structure or appearance.” Ovvo frames are handmade in Poland and Germany with precision laser cuts for fine details. The frames were actually certified the only anti-allergic eyeglasses in Europe by the Italian firm, Certottica.
