MINI TRENDSETTERS

Arian Fartash, O.D., otherwise known as the “Glam Optometrist,” has launched GlamBaby, a line of sunglasses designed to fit ages 3 months to tweens.

“I am a first-time mommy living in California and was frustrated by the lack of stylish sun protection there was for kids,” says Dr. Fartash. “Being an eye doctor, I know the importance of protecting the eyes from UVA/UVB from an early age and decided to take a chance and create my own line of sunglasses.”

Offering a mix of silhouettes in acetate or metal, the new collection also features CR-39 lenses with 100% UVA/UVB protection. Each frame comes with a GlamBaby custom lens pouch and cleaning cloth made in Los Angeles by Clearlens. Suggested retail pricing is $29.99.
