The venture coincides with the 30 th anniversary of the Leeds-based family business. “We’re very excited to see how customers will react to this first collection.” Gillian commented. “Going forward we have the intention to create glasses cases, cloths and other accessories.” The entire process took a year to come to fruition, from concept through to stock delivery of eight different glasses designs (each in six different categories of lens strength) and 12 different credit card blocker wallets. Some of the designs are more on the subtle side and geared towards darker colours and subdued design elements, while others are more flamboyant with vibrant colourways to suit the more outgoing customer. There are designs to suit both men and women. In a market where fashion meets functionality – with around 70 per cent of people in the UK using glasses or contact lenses and consumers switching to contactless credit cards – Opticaid is turning well-used everyday products into must-have fashion accessories.
