Happy New Year from Dolabany Eyewear

The new year is upon us and Dolabany Eyewear would like to wish all of our independent eye care professionals a very happy new year and a great start to 2019.


2019 is right around the corner, are you ready for the new year? As an independent eyewear company, we rely on our eye care professionals to take us to the next level.  Here are a few tips to help all of us grow in 2019.

Stay true to who you are

We all know that our customers have the opportunity to go to the big box stores for their eyewear mainly because their frames may be less expensive, but the personalized customer service and knowledge may not be there. The commercialized stores want to get as many customers in and out of their store on a daily basis so they can make ends meet.

The independent eyewear businesses, like yourselves, take pride in what we offer to our customers.  Not only are Dolabany frames fashionable, and reasonably priced, all of our representatives are independently owned stores.  We take the time to listen to our customers wants and needs, and help them find the right frames that fit their face. Another great thing about independent eyewear companies is consumers can’t buy our frames online and we make sure that every customer is satisfied before they leave the store.

Designer Eyeglass Frames

Independent eyewear brands, like Dolabany and Paris Plume, depend on their quality and creativity to keep their businesses going.  Mark Dolabany takes great pride in his designer eyeglass frames.  Dolabany has been producing high-quality designer frames for over 30 years.  Each one of Dolabany’s designer optical frames is produced with premium materials and exceptional workmanship.

New Releases

The Dolabany Eyewear collection is known for its retro-inspired designs. Classic, mid-century eyewear styles are reimagined this New Year with Dolabany Eyewear’s signature colors, materials, and accent details.  Stay tuned for our next blog to see all the new releases we have for January 2019!


Best wishes for a happy new year filled with health, happiness, and spectacular success in 2019!

Happy Holidays, from Dolabany Eyewear

Navidad 2

Eye care professionals, remember that the important thing is not what you give, or how you wrap the designer eyeglass frames. The important thing, during this very special time of year, is that you are making sure that your customers are very happy with their frames that they have purchased from you.

A World of Good Wishes. One of the real joys this holiday season is the opportunity to say thank you and wish you the very best for the new year.

From all of us at Dolabany Eyewear, Happy Holidays and have a very prosperous New Year!

You support the independent label and not the publicly traded brands.

  1.  The price you pay is for the product, not the name.


We all know the favorite eyewear companies, right, but why should we keep giving them money?  The more prominent corporations are encouraged to pump out cheaper products for a more significant price.   When you buy these expensive brands, you are paying for the name or emblem on the frame and not the quality of the product.  We should be purchasing trendy frames from independent companies and helping out the small businesses that take pride in every frame that is made.


  1.  Independent brands depend on quality and creativity.

Independent brands depend on their quality and creativity. For instance,  Dolabany Eyewear has been in business for over 30 years.  Mark Dolabany designs and produces high-quality eyewear and believes that eyewear should only be fitted and sold by professional eye care providers.  Mark Dolabany, the CEO, takes pride in the quality and creativity in every one of his designs. Their brands, Dolabany Eyewear, and Plume Paris are both produced with premium materials and exceptional workmanship.  Their hand-made eyeglass frames are made the old-fashioned way using high-quality acetate, real rivets, and multi-barrel hinges.


  1.  Support the independent label

Independent eyewear labels want to help the small independent business as opposed to the commercialized stores.  Most of them included Dolabany Eyewear, commit to not selling their products on the internet. Selling frames online takes away from the personal and professional fitting of the frames.  Every face is different, and it takes a professional, licensed optician to make sure you are getting the right frame to fit your face. When you purchase from the big box stores, you are supporting the publicly traded companies and not getting the professional, high-quality, handmade frames that you would get from an independent wholesaler.

These unions are common in every industry. Take food, for example. Ten companies can be named in the food industry that control most of the world’s food production.  Such corporations are publically traded and are legally obligated to their shareholders to demonstrate growth and increase revenue each quarter.
