Barry Dibble, owner of Dibble Optical, a company that specialises in children’s eyewear, spoke to OT about two of its main product offerings during 100% Optical last month.

Discussing Mira Flex, Mr Dibble described the children’s eyewear range, which is available in 29 styles and 30 different colours, as flexible and “virtually indestructible.”

On Milo and Me, a German brand that the company has recently welcomed into its portfolio, Mr Dibble said that it was “more fashion-related and for children who want to have fun.”

“We want children to go outdoors and not be worried about damaging their eyewear,” he added.

Mr Dibble also highlighted that there are a number of elements that the practitioner must consider when dispensing children’s eyewear, including lens and adjustability. He added that the company is seeing a “huge amount” of interest in sports safety eyewear for children currently.
