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 an 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.
