SPECS4US was created and founded in 2004, by
Maria Dellapina, a single mother of four with more
than 30 years of experience in the optical field. The
name SPECS4US stands for Superior Precision
Eyewear for Children who are Special.
Maria's youngest daughter Erin was diagnosed with
Down syndrome at birth. After several frustrating
years of searching for an eyeglass frame that would
fit Erin properly, and finding out that nearly 87% of
children with Down syndrome will need glasses by the
time they enter preschool, Maria decided to combine
her passion as a mother, with her knowledge of
eyeglasses, and SPECS4US was formed.
Erin's World, is a frame line designed to
accommodate and fit the features of children and
adults with Down syndrome, as well as, other
individuals with unique facial features. This innovative
eyeglass design includes a bridge which is adjusted to
properly fit a low nasal bridge and temples (or "arms"
of the glasses) which are modified to keep the
glasses from constantly slipping down.
The SPECS4US mission is to improve the sight and
quality of life for children and adults with Down
syndrome and other unique facial features by
providing custom frames that fit their unique needs.
Erin's World frames are now available in a variety of
sizes and styles. They are available for purchase at
eye care professional offices throughout the United
States and in 28 different countries.
