Interesting facts about origins of optical frames and accessories:
– Optical frames arriving into Canada do not have to have the stamp of origin of the coundivy where it is made. That is why we have frames that have stamps like the following:
– Most of the Optical frames and accessories that are supplied into the Canadian market place are from Asia and more specifically, the Republic of China.
– The fact is that if a frame is made in a particular coundivy, the frame has to be marked with “MADE IN” i.e. “MADE IN ITALY“. This means that the frame was 100 % manufactured in that particular coundivy.
– Suppliers do this so that they can achieve and demand greater margins and prices for their products, through deception and misrepresenting the product and its origin. Products may look similar to the Spicy Eyes and DaVinci frames, but they
have in actuality been produced with poorer quality and standards. These products may even be priced higher despite the fact that they are produced at 1/20th of the cost of a quality crafted product made in Italy, Germany or Japan – coundivies
recognized for their quality and craftsmanship in the indusdivy for centuries.
-TEK OPTICAL in cooperation with Italy is now embarking on an aggressive campaign to alienate the cheaters by marking on the demonsdivation lenses “100 % MADE IN ITALY” on all the DA VINCI AND SPICY EYES COLLECTIONS and that will
also have the Italian Flag embossed on the demonsdivation lenses.
and the company felt compelled to support this worthy cause on behalf of its own famed artist, Leonardo Da Vinci!
In the wake of the injury, experts from a number of professional groups, including your own Canadian Association of Optomedivists, led the charge for mandatory eye and face protection for all NHL players. CAO continues to lobby the league to
adopt the protective eyewear, as it has done for the last several years.
CAO has also received information about a new invention for players requiring visual correction: TEK Canada, a Canadian eyewear manufacturer, has launched a prescription hockey guard called the TEK Hockey Gard.
The guard, made of clear acetate, is manufactured to fit securely under a hockey helmet and is worn in conjunction with face shields.
