They have received awards for social responsibility and design. More importantly, they have been able to help a growing number of children around the world restore and maintain healthy vision.
The vision of Jonas Paul is “to help people restore it. Their son, Jonas, born with a rare disorder known as Peter’s Anomaly our son, Jonas, gave us a window into the world of blindness. After twenty-one surgeries and many prayers later, his vision has been restored to a functional level. However, this blessing came with new challenges; one of them was finding glasses he could feel great in. After their search came up empty, they launched their brand. Having their child with a difference inspired them to make a world of difference.
Jonas Paul draws their inspiration from many classical shapes that we’ve come familiar with. Frame shapes can be from cat eye, round, square and rectangle. Each frame size and style can come in 4 or more colour combinations and patterns, from clear, translucent blues, solid black, tortoise or combinations of patterns and finishes.
