Port Washington, NY – I & Eye Optical, a well-respected, Long Island based eyewear manufacturer and merchandiser with national distribution, expands its popular line of New Classics frames with two new styles: the VR21 & the VR22.

Vari’s New Classics has the same velvety feel and finish of our Classics line including our proprietary TR-90 but with a little something nouveau. With the expansion of this line, we included a number of fresh design details. And our newest addition to the collection are truly showstoppers. Both our VR21 and VR22 feature hypoallergenic, corrosion-resistant, malleable Monel temples.

The VR21 sports a rectangular design made of a formulation of our proprietary TR 90 material. The frame’s form-fit saddle bridge comes with a spring hinge and hypoallergenic Monel temples. With a lens width of 53 mm this frame is finely designed and includes an especially comfortable saddle-shaped bridge. The TR 90 material makes this frame dependable, flexible and resilient. And the frame finish is smooth and cool to the touch. This new frame comes in a variety of colors such as black matte with gold trim, matte gray with silver trim and black matte/shell with gunmetal trim.

Made with the same TR 90 material and including the same form fit saddle bridge with spring hinge hypoallergenic Monel temples, the VR22 takes on a modified cat shaped rectangular form. The VR22 includes all the same features of the VR21 but with a fun upsweep cat shape frame. This frame comes in tortoise with gold trim, dark wine with gold trim and a blue with gold trim option.
