Eyeball doctor turned eyewear frame designer for "Mi Gente".
"Finding eyewear (eyeglasses) that fit my patients (and myself) was always a challenge in my Chicago practice. My patients predominantly Latinx did not fit in the current eyewear styles. Most eyewear designs in the market are European styles.
Having wider faces, higher cheekbones, with flatter nose bridges caused eyewear to slide off their noses, float on their face and the colors did not compliment our beautiful skin tone.
I researched and inquired frame Manufacturers only to be told: "We don't make that. No one wants it, no one buys it" Gasp!
I complained to my husband about the frustration of not finding nice glasses that fit and he replied: "Stop complaining and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT"
So I did.
"La Vida Eyewear" was born.
