Ugly Glasses Competition

Valley Eyecare & Eyewear Gallery Announces our 
Ugly Glasses Competition!

We know they are out there.  I've seen you dedicated contact lens wearers come in with a red eye, doomed to bust out your most recent pair of glasses from 1986.  Show is your double bar executive bifocals.  We want to see those big, thick prescriptions before you knew about high index and antireflective coatings.  Let's see those at home repairs involving paper clips, duct tape, etc.  The worse, the better...

This is your big chance!  Consider it an Extreme Makeover for your most functional accessory.  We are holding a competition for the worst glasses out there.  The lucky winner will win a great new pair of glasses at our 3rd annual Trunk Show.  He or she will be allowed to select from thousands of frames, and we will put the most advanced lenses in it.

Here are the rules:

1.  You can nominate yourself or someone you think needs an eyewear makeover.  If you nominate someone else, you need their permission.  We want this to be fun, and we do not want to hurt anyone's feelings.

2.  We need a picture, the name of the contestant, their email address and phone number.  Feel free to send additional info if you think it will help your chances.  Do the glasses have a story?  Feel like making a video?  poem?  song?  The sky is the limit - be creative!  We do reserve the right to edit the content or discard it if it is offensive.  Once you send us the entry, we will have the right to publish it on our blog, website, etc.  We will not post the email or phone number of course.

3.  Email us your entry at uglyglasses@gmail.com by April 1.  We may contact you if we need more info.  If you would prefer, you can drop your entry off at our office or mail it to us.  We may not be able to get everyone their pictures back, so do not give us the only copy if it is something important.

4.  The winner will be announced April 7.  To get the prize, the contestant must be able to attend our 3rd annual Trunk Show on April 28 and bring a copy of a current glasses prescription.  If a current prescription is not available, Dr. Lyons will perform a courtesy eye exam between April 7 and 28.

Good luck and let the fun begin!
