MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation Inc.'s mission is to  preserve sight and improve lives by providing free quality medical eyecare and eyewear to New York City’s underserved populations. Mobileyes volunteers regularly visit organizations such as Boys' Club of New York to conduct free onsite medical eye examinations and vision screening tests for New Yorkers who would not otherwise be denied access to such care. For many of these patients, these visits mark the first time in their lives they will experience clear vision – it's truly amazing what a difference a pair of prescription glasses can make in someone's life! It's an honor to serve our community, and nothing beats the feeling experienced more than letters received like this one from Corey, a member of the Boys' Club of New York, Harriman Clubhouse on the LES, whose eyes were examined. 

About Mobileeyes
Using portable medical equipment, the Mobileyes Foundation team of licensed Doctors of Optometry and Optometric Technicians sets up a temporary, onsite clinic where they are able to evaluate patients’ overall ocular health and vision needs, and check for a host of medical eye conditions and general health problems. Mobileyes Opticians provide free prescription eyeglasses for patients with vision needs, and Mobileyes Foundation Optometrists provide free prescription eye drops and referral services for patients with specific conditions.

Through these efforts, the Mobileyes Foundation helps to significantly reduce instances of preventable blindness and visual impairment, and specific health problems through early detection. For more information about Mobileeyes or to make a donation, please visit http://www.moscotmobileyes.org

MOSCOT retailer Bassano Optical threw a fantastic MOSCOT-themed party at their shop in Bassano del Grappa, Italy. The event was a huge success with nearly 200 guests in attendance throughout the evening. Party-goers sipped wine, listened to live music courtesy of jazz band "Living Room Trio" and shopped for MOSCOT Eyewear. Bassano Optical invited customers, designers, jazz lovers, and, of course, fans of MOSCOT. The shop boasted special displays with vintage pieces and original vinyl from the 60's...all in the spirit of The MOSCOT aesthetic! Bravo to a successful event and a job well done! And grazie mille to Bassano Optical and Flavio of Baumvision, our MOSCOT distribution partner for Europe.

Introducing San!

What is your position at MOSCOT?
I am the Visual Director at MOSCOT.

How long have you worked for MOSCOT?
I've worked here for seven years.

What is your favorite thing about working for MOSCOT?
The best part of working here is seeing our designs go from sketch to finished product, and then onto someone's face on the subway...or a bag (usually at a bar).

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?
When I'm not working I am on a subway, or at a bar looking for MOSCOT frames on people's faces!

What is your favorite MOSCOT frame and which one do you wear?
I wear The TERRY because the aviator is a legendary shape, and happens to fit my big head. 

Where would you take your favorite MOSCOT Sun on vacation? 
I will wear The EMERSON to Essaouria, Morocco.

Nick Waterhouse is the new breed - An R&B fanatic who combines an uncanny old-school sensibility and with a charged, contemporary style.  For Waterhouse, his muse is the over-modulated sound of vintage ‘50s R&B and Rebel Rock n’ Roll.   His take on such a time-honored tradition evokes the back-alley thrill of New Orleans, Detroit and Memphis in their heyday.  He combines an astute attention to detail recording on all vintage equipment with an honest desire to match the emotional impact of the music that inspires him.

Hellooo summer! On the first day of summer (today!) what better way to celebrate than with two new colors, for two of our very favorite frames!

Introducing... The MILTZEN in Black and The DANNEE in Grey! Named for two of our uncles who are worth celebrating on this, the first day of summer, The round, classic P-3 shaped MILTZEN is our  frame with the longest lineage, dating back to 1930s and worn  by the likes of Andy Warhol and John Lennon, while the avuncular DANNEE is a timeless classic that looks great on aunts too.

Both frame colors are available now in MOSCOT shops and online at moscot.com.
