RICHMOND, Va., March 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The founders of Klix Frames (McGinley, Broz, Proffitt, Flinn) didn't see this coming. In a world where prescription eyewear is dominated by titans that take no prisoners, Klix Frames USA entered the Javits Center in New York City attending their first Vision Expo virtually unknown to the prescription eyewear world, and walking away with the Vision Expo's best of show technology (Patent Pending).
"We knew we had something special that the consumer would love - offering customers more fun and more fashion by letting them accessorize their eyewear just as they do with their blazers, shoes, belts, etc. So," lamented McGinley, "The cost of lenses often meant wearing the same glasses for years. Not anymore."
Klix Frames is an eyewear company founded in 2014. What began as a conversation lamenting the price and lack of options of quality eyewear, turned into revolutionary idea on how eyewear is purchased and worn. And that's not all. In addition to the Klix Frames solution, Klix Frames along with Portland based Fetch Eyewear will launch a second technology early 2018, Fetch Find (Patent Pending). More to come.
According to Joe Flinn, one of the founders of Klix Frames USA, "From an optometrist retail standpoint, people come into their stores because their insurance has told them they are up for purchasing new lenses. What we do is bring new, repeated foot traffic into their stores so that when a person buys Klix Frames, they can come back in one month, 3 months, 6 months to buy another set of frames to match their new clothing or because they want to change things up." Mike Broz adds, "What do eyewear retail stores sell that brings foot traffic outside of what insurance says they can buy?" Klix Frames is bringing retailers new dollars. Matt Proffitt closed with, "This is a very big disruptor to the insurance market. From a fashion standpoint, consumers will spend more dollars than previously. Selling a pair of Klix Frames will enable them to purchase 3 to 5 pairs without needing insurance to cover costs." A single set of lenses, multiple frames. It's about time.
