Erin’s World frames were developed by the dedication of Maria Dellapina in 2004. Maria’s youngest daughter Erin was diagnosed with Down syndrome at birth. Many frustrating years followed as Maria tried to find spectacles that would fit and fulfill the optical requirements of Erin.
Maria combined her extensive knowledge of optics with her passion for success and began to develop a spectacle frame that would fit Erin perfectly.
The frame’s success is a testament to Maria’s desire to change the way spectacles are dispensed to people with Down syndrome. ‘Erin’s World’, is a frame line designed to accommodate and fit the features of children and adults with Down syndrome, as well as, other individuals with unique facial features.
The frames are uniquely designed with shortened temples, extra wide frame fronts and a lowered bridge. Temples are either 180° spring hinges or TR90. The frames are finished for the real world by using a Titanium memory flex bridge.
This all mean these glasses are designed to fit individuals with low flat nasal bridges and temples (or arms) that are designed to fit securely.
