From the style names to the temple tips to the packaging, every aspect of a 2BB: frame purchase sends the customer one message: Two Blind Brothers and L’Amy America are companies that care. And the 2BB: collection embraces and celebrates the important work of optometrists.


The 2BB: women’s and men’s collections each include eight optical styles. Every style is named with care, in honor of someone meaningful in the world of optometric history. And like every Two Blind Brothers product, each style includes braille elements representing the word brothers. Here’s a look at a few 2BB: models.

The packaging for all 2BB: frames is created to encompass the brand ethos of “feel the difference.” One side has a leather feel, while the other side offers a smoother tactile experience. The packaging features a debossed logo and high-contrast colors. L’Amy America has also partnered with Bosma Enterprises, an Indiana-based company that employs and trains individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The Bosma team provides the final packing for 2BB: sunglasses before shipment to customers.

Kathryn Chambers, senior brand and marketing manager, L’AMY America, said, “After speaking with the team at Bosma, I immediately knew they shared the same passion and purpose L’Amy did and wanted
to find a way to work together.”

The 2BB: eyewear collection is inspired by Two Blind Brothers, a clothing and accessories brand created by brothers Brad and Bryan Manning, both of whom have lived for decades with Stargardt disease. While this rare, genetic eye disease doesn’t currently have a cure, organizations like the Foundation Fighting Blindness are dedicated to the global development of treatments and cures for diseases that cause blindness.
