Fitz Frames, which makes children’s eyewear frames using 3-D printing, has begun production of protective eyewear for medical workers during the COVID-19 crisis.

The company is making both prescription and non-prescription eyewear and selling it at cost (approximately $100), WFMJ-TV reports. It’s adding a shift to increase production capacity.

Gabe Schlumberger, CEO of Fitz Frames, said the eyewear is “designed to be very, very functional.”

“Particularly it covers your eyebrows, it provides a little bit more droplet protection, provides a lot wider-field of view,” he explained.

INVISION reported in July 2019 that Fitz Frames had set up manufacturing operating in Youngstown, OH.
