GREAT NECK, N.Y.—Tura Inc. has introduced the Geoffrey Beene Eyewear collection inspired by one of America’s design pioneers.

“Our goal is to translate the designer’s inventive styling into modern, wearable silhouettes for fashion-savvy, value-conscious and socially-aware patients,” said Eileen Estrada, Tura’s brand manager for Geoffrey Beene.

The launch features 12 men’s and 12 women’s ophthalmic frames in an assortment of plastic, metal, semi-rimless and combination styles in classic and modern shapes with contemporary, jewelry-inspired details.
