Ossip Optometry Named Exclusive 141 Eyewear Retailer in Indiana


PORTLAND, Ore.—Philanthropic eyewear brand, 141 Eyewear, which donates a pair of frames for every frame sold, has named Ossip Optometry its exclusive retailer in Indiana. The donated frames go to clinics that provide eye exams and prescription eyeglasses to children in need throughout the U.S.

Since opening its first store in Broad Ripple, Ind., in 1952, Ossip Optometry has grown to more than 19 locations throughout Indiana. Carrying 141 Eyewear offers the multi-location eyecare practice the opportunity to build on its Day of Giving, which provides free eye exams and eyecare to people without affordable access to such services, particularly children.

“We’re thrilled with the quality and the design. The fun colors and on-trend design for kids’ frames have their own personality and intelligence,” said Catherine Skelton, Ossip’s director of product, merchandising and services. “Our customers respond well to pure optical brands, and 141 Eyewear’s mission to help a kid with every purchase resonated strongly with our own.”

“We’re ecstatic that Ossip Optometry has joined the 141 Eyewear family,” said 141 Eyewear co-founder Kyle Yamaguchi. “The success of our mission hinges on dedicated retailers who believe in the promise of the brand and will help spread the word, one customer and patient at a time. Ossip Optometry’s reputation and success gives us great confidence that we’re going to help a lot of kids see, learn and live better.”
