Kame ManNen is one those amazing lines of eyewear that just seem to last the trends and times. They have been making eyewear since 1917 and are a favorite at The Eye Bar. Classic eyeglasses that stand the test of time made from the finest nickel free titanium in Japan. Its almost sad when a pair finds its owner, they are so well made, the only reason to come back is if the prescription changes! The concept is to make eyewear that could last 1000 years! I am not sure if they would last that long being worn everyday, however, they could easily outlast the buyer.
