Why Celebrate National Eyewear Day: 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 facial 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.


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! The mission is simple: Be proud of your frames. Be proud of you.

How to Participate: Celebrate National Eyewear Day with us by sharing a photo on social media of you in your favorite frame and let us know how they make you feel! Some examples: My frames make me feel… Beautiful. Sophisticated. Unique. Fun. Like a star! – We want to see your goofy selfies on Instagram and your big smiles on Facebook, so join Zyloware on June 6th for a day of frame pride and share the fun with friends and family!
