The National Down Syndrome Congress gathered resources from around the country for an exhibition during their recent Monumental Meeting in Washington, DC. In one room, families could find topical information from health and welfare to international adoption to,of course, play. Specs 4 Us in particular generated much interest.
Children with Down Syndrome often can be born with visual defects including near or far sightedness, cataracts, squinting, or, less frequently, nystagmus (a continuous rapid eye movement or wobble). These children also have unique physical characteristics like low nose bridges which may not maintain proper typically-made eye glass positioning. Left untreated or uncompensated for, a child will have difficulty processing visual information and, ultimately, experience developmental delays.
Specs 4 Us has eye glass frames specifically for people with Down Syndrome and other individuals with low nose bridges. Erin’s World Frames are designed with shortened temples, extra wide frame fronts and a lowered bridge. They are made from titanium and memory flex that creates a flexible bridge and temples that spring out to 180°.
