A small start-up from Ohio, in the United States, offers glasses that perfectly fit the size and structure of your son or daughter’s face, and, best of all, at a reasonable price. The secret is in the use of 3D printing technology.
Fitz Frames only manufactures unique glasses and on demand. The user must download an application for the mobile and with it first choose the style of glasses they like (mainly shape and colors). Then you must use the app to measure the structure of your face, and the order is launched. A 3D printer manufactures the custom glasses and once you have the frame the necessary crystals are added, including those that have an eye doctor’s prescription. In a few days the glasses are sent home for a price of 95 dollars.
The business model is round. The company must not have any type of stock, customers get a unique product at a reasonable price and that adapts perfectly to the needs. And, of course, that can be repeated every time the boy or girl has grown and has changed the shape of the face. As if that were not enough, and knowing how difficult it is for children not to break or lose their glasses, they offer a subscription service of $ 185 per year with as many spare glasses as necessary.
