The Big Vision Eyewear Pitch
Big Vision Eyewear are targeted at older men and women who may or may not need regular glasses but still have trouble reading small print. They suffer from presbyopia, a natural part of the aging process where the lens of the eye stiffens, making it more difficult to focus on close objects.
To prove how good Big Vision Eyewear works, they ask people at a shopping mall to try to read something without glasses: they all have trouble with the fine print. When they put on the Big Vision Eyewear, however, they appear to be able to read just fine.
It is touted by an optometrist named Aaron Shannon who states the goal of Big Vision Eyewear is reduce eye pain, eye strain, and eye fatigue.
