For anyone that requires prescription lenses to see, you know how much of an impact your glasses have on your daily life. Not only does eyewear help us see better, it makes us who we are! Over the years, eyewear has transformed from a visual aid into a genuinely iconic fashion accessory. Eyewear can define, outline and punctuate a personality. It can complete an outfit and compliment a person’s face shape. Eyewear has grown in popularity and has become a massive part of our lives, which is why Zyloware has recognized this significance and created National Eyewear Day. National Eyewear Day was created and registered by Zyloware in 2016 to honor Joseph Shyer, who founded Zyloware in 1923.
Each year on June 6th Zyloware celebrates all things eyewear. We toast to frames in all shapes and sizes and rejoice all things SPEC-TACULAR! Our mission is simple: Helping people see a beautiful day everyday.
For the Eyecare Professional:
- Host an in-store event or sale for National Eyewear Day! Send out an e-blast at least a week in advance and don’t forget to post on social media to reach both new and existing customers!
- Set-up a selfie station for your customers to try on frames and post to social media. Create a dedicated corner of your store for customers to take pics in their favorite frames.
- Record testimonials from your customers to share (be sure to get their permission) on social media. Positive reviews are a great way to attract new business!
