Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin has sparked a run on her Japanese-made eyeglasses. Now you can get them right here in the Wiregrass.
20/20 Eye Care on West Main Street in Dothan is the exclusive distributor of the glasses in this area. They already have 30 of the frames on back order, and are expecting another influx of orders in the near future. The frames are garnering attention from many women consumers.
Dr. David Sheffield with 20/20 Eye Care said, "It's stirred up a lot of interest in the eye wear business, especially her frames by Kawaskaki. They are very light weight, and we thought we'd offer them here."
Designer Kazuo Kawasaki says that the distinctive frames attach to the lenses with flexible curly-cues, instead of screws, a creation he dreamed up by accident.
