During August Buying Glasses Never Looked So Good
Purchase A Pair of bjorn* Eyewear and bjorn* will donate $25 to Visual Aid, and give you $25 off on your frames

Need to update your look? (Or know someone who does?)
For the month of August, bjorn* Eyewear will donate $25 to Visual Aid for each pair of glasses purchased at either of its two locations. In addition, customers will receive $25 off their order. Visual Aid is a San Francisco non-profit helping artists with life-threatening illnesses to continue their work (visualaid.org). The fundraiser is being held to celebrate the opening of bjorn* Eyewear's second location on Market Street.

Bjorn* Eyewear is designed here in San Francisco and offers the latest in European-styled fashion frames. Bjorn Thuvesson, who worked with Italy's leading eyewear designers, uses the highest-quality Italian eyewear manufacturers to craft his frames. This quality allows him to back up his glasses with the industry's best warranty-a full year on frames and lenses. The growing boutique optical chain offers fashion frames for less: glasses carry a package price of only $239-269 for glasses, prescription lenses (single vision, polycarbonate), UV, anti-scratch and anti-glare coatings.

About Visual Aid
Visual Aid encourages artists with life-threatening illnesses to continue their creative work. Visual Aid helps produce, present, and preserve the work of professional artists whose careers are challenged because of a life-threatening illness. We serve professional artists from the nine-county Bay Area, providing artists with direct services from art supplies to exhibitions and career development. http://www.visualaid.org
