TOMATO GLASSES is a story about the love of a parent for their child and the extremes they have gone to find the perfect fitting glasses…
Tomato Glasses were designed by Mr. Sungjoon Kim in South Korea in 2003. His son was diagnosed with amblyopia, or “lazy eye,” and needed to wear glasses. He searched for a pair of kids glasses that would fit his son, but he could not find glasses that would fit perfectly.
