COLUMBIA, S.C., Aug. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apex EyeCare, serving the Columbia, Dentsville and surrounding areas of South Carolina, is pleased to announce the addition of the OVVO Optics line of eyewear to their in-house frames selection. The OVVO Optics collection features handcrafted frames for sunglasses and corrective lenses. These imported eyewear products are made from materials that render them virtually indestructible.
The OVVO Optics line of eyewear has been available in the U.S. since 2011. However, the company’s history dates back to Cold War era of Europe when a group of scientists was developing materials for military and aeronautics use. They fused titanium with surgical steel, and the result was an exceptionally light, flexible, highly durable and hypoallergenic material.
In 1980, the remarkable qualities of this new composite metal inspired engineers to start using it to make eyewear frames for glasses. OVVO frames are manufactured with outstanding precision with this material and hand-finished by artisans with over 30 years of experience. OVVO frames are created in Poland and Germany in family-owned plants to bring unmatched quality and exquisite European style worldwide. This premier addition to the eyeglasses line at Apex EyeCare is now available from the Dentsville optometrist.
The OVVO Optics manufacturing process involves 65 to 85 steps to complete each frame. German engineered laser technology is used to cut each frame from raw steel imported from Sweden. Numerous stages of hand-manufacturing involve high levels of precision and attention to detail. Each set of frames is finished with hand-polishing as well as any painting, and are closely inspected at each phase to ensure the highest quality.
OVVO glasses frames weigh 0.6 ounces or less, resulting in unparalleled comfort as well as unfailing strength and durability. Testing has shown that OVVO frames stretched out flat can withstand 90 pounds of weight without breakage. The OVVO Optics patented screw-free hinge can handle over 300,000 rotations, which is equal to over 200 years of normal wear. Even with this much use, there are no discernible changes in appearance or structure.
Dr. Michael McClay of Apex EyeCare says, “We are pleased to be able to make the OVVO line of precision eyewear available to our customers. With such stringent materials and manufacturing standards, it’s no wonder the end products are flawless, sophisticated works of art. Our Dentsville sunglasses and eyeglass frames are durable, comfortable and flexible, and OVVO Optics are truly in a league of their own.”
