Eyewear for Individuals with Down Syndrome

Bradley Mattes   |   March 18, 2016

Maria Dellapina has a daughter, Erin, with Down syndrome.  Children with Down syndrome have a hard time finding glasses that fit properly instead of slipping down their faces.  Maria went to the manufacturers and asked for glasses that fit unique faces like Erin’s and was told a product like that wasn’t necessary.  So Maria decided to make her own.  A friend invested in a project to create the glasses and they work.  The first year they’re having great success and expect to sell over six-thousand pairs.  The special glasses have an adjustable bridge and modified arms to keep the glasses from slipping down all the time.  If you or someone you know could benefit from Maria’s special eyewear, visit life issues dot org and click on the microphone icon for more information.
