COL + MOSCOT Providing FREE Eyewear to Front Line Medical Personnel
"CHERRY OPTICAL LAB PARTNERS WITH MOSCOT TO PROVIDE EYEWEAR TO FRONT LINE MEDICAL PERSONNEL RESPONDING TO COVID-19”
NEW YORK, APRIL 2020 - The MOSCOT Family has partnered with Cherry Optical Lab to support healthcare professionals who are working on the front lines responding to COVID-19 and facing a shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) by providing eyeglasses that offer an additional layer of eye protection. The two, multi-generational, family-owned American companies will provide MOSCOT frames that are fitted with clear lenses that can help to reduce exposure to airborne particles or fluid-borne pathogens from patients. This is also an effort to get healthcare providers solely reliant on their contact lenses into a pair of protective eyeglasses.
Eyeglasses are available with both non-prescription and prescription (distance or reading) lens options in a pre-selected assortment of MOSCOT frames.
NOMINATIONS: Do you know a healthcare worker who is working hard to keep others safe and well during this crisis? We want to help by providing eyewear that can help to provide additional protection while they are treating patients.

ABOUT CHERRY OPTICAL LAB
Cherry Optical Lab (COL), a family-owned independent wholesale optical laboratory, was founded by Joe and Lynn Cherry in 1999 in Green Bay, WI. Competing directly against the largest companies in the eye care industry, Cherry has grown to become a leader in lens manufacturing through constant innovation, technology investments, tight standards, and, most importantly, the company’s skilled artisans, who produce outstanding eyewear daily. COL serves independent eye care professionals across the country under the ownership of its co-founders and leadership of current president, Adam Cherry.
The MOSCOT optical roots were first planted in America by Great Great Grandfather and family patriarch, Hyman Moscot, who arrived from Eastern Europe via Ellis Island in 1899. Hyman began selling ready-made eyeglasses from a pushcart on Orchard Street on Manhattan's famed Lower East Side. Now, over a century later MOSCOT is a New York City institution, renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear. MOSCOT infuses its unmistakably refined, downtown aesthetic with over 100 years of eyewear expertise and unparalleled craftsmanship to create its timeless eyewear. While now recognized as a global fashion brand, MOSCOT remains, at heart, a neighborhood optical Shop.
