American Optical Frames
Petite fit aluminum browline cat eyes in a soft black nylon frame. By American Optical, USA

American Optical frames, made in the USA.
They're still in business producing great reproductions of their original line.

These are the originals. 1950's cat eyes with pebbled aluminum hornrim brows.

Pre-owned, polished and ready for your own Rx.

These a not 100% black so they're not as harsh.
They have a hint of brownish taupe which is most visible on the stems and
along the thinner part of the rim.
You could see its glow when held up to strong lighting
This is a petite adult frame. Please read measurements below.

Only 1 available.
They're in excellent condition.
Unique and one of a kind.
Frames have strong 3 barrel hinges
and the temples and aluminum trims are riveted to the frame.
Key hole bridge. Note that the temples have a deliberate pebbled finish to keep them from slipping since their original temple is straight and not curved.  If you'd like me to curve them like traditional stems, I can do that for you. Just ask me upon your purchase.
Full frame great for progressive/bifocal lenses.

Our frames are guaranteed with a free replacement or refund in case the lab damages them while they install your lenses. No other optician would give you such a promise. Only we do.
