Silhouette Eyewear

 

Silhouette Photo

Silhouette, the leading manufacturer of rimless frames, was first launched by Anneliese and Arnold Schmied in Austria in 1964. With a philosophy that eyewear should be lightweight and comfortable, strong and attractive, Silhouette uses innovative technology to create eyewear of the highest quality:

  • Silhouette’s goal is to create sophisticated eyewear that is reduced to its most essential elements but remains highly functional and stylish.
  • Silhouette has revolutionized the eyewear market creating Titan Minimal Art – rimless, screw-less, hinge-less and incredibly lightweight frames from exclusive, high-quality materials.
  • In order to create their vision, Silhouette has developed technologies to produce their own patented materials such as lightweight SPX plastic and High Tech Titanium.
  • Silhouette’s stunning eyewear designs which are inspired by approaching eyewear as an accessory to one’s appearance, have won numerous international design awards.
  • While Silouhette has become an icon for revolutionary light and comfortable rimless eyewear, they also offer fullrim eyewear at the same high quality and craftsmanship as its rimless varieties.

Protecting our Patients from Coronavirus Disease Outbreak

Making sure our patients and staff are safe is our top priority. We know many patients are concerned about the spread of Coronavirus.

Our Promise to Our Patients:

We understand the obvious concern that coronavirus has brought to the area. We want to make you aware of the steps we are taking to protect our patients and team members in this time of uncertainty.

We request the following of patients:

  1. If you have traveled in the last 14 days to a country other than the U.S. where coronavirus has been diagnosed, or to any area in this country that has had a number of cases of concern (eg, Seattle, DC-NY metro area, parts of CA, etc…) please call the office to reschedule your appointment for next month or beyond.
  2. If you have any symptoms that mimic that of the coronavirus, which includes a fever or respiratory symptoms, including a cough, please call and reschedule your appointment at least 14 days from now.
  3. If you suspect that you have had direct contact with people who have been around any of the people who have tested positive for the coronavirus, please call us to reschedule your visit beyond 14 days from now.
  4. Remember to follow basic hygiene guidelines to avoid the spread of germs, which includes washing your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.

Our staff will also follow these guidelines and will not be present at work if they exhibit any of the above-mentioned symptoms:

  1. Any eye doctor or team member who is sick is staying home
  2. We sanitize every piece of equipment after each use and again at the end of the day (as part of our precautions we always adhere to).
  3. We will sanitize all patient contact surfaces between every patient.
  4. Our team washes their hands often throughout the day
  5. If we don’t shake hands with our patients during this time, please don’t take it personally.
  1. Please call us with any questions or concerns, and if you feel it best for you or your family member to reschedule your appointment, feel free to do so.
  2. We do expect this to be an ongoing situation in our area for an extended period of time, and do not want our patients to neglect their eye care needs during this time. We will continue to give recommendations based on the evidence we have on safe delivery of eye care in a time of uncertainty.
