Our Story

TOMATO GLASSES is a story about a parent’s love and the extremes they have gone to find the perfect fitting glasses…

Tomato Glasses were designed by 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 glasses that would fit his son, but he could not find children’s glasses that were comfortable or would fit perfectly.

Mr. Kim researched quality materials and designed a custom frame with love and care that would fit his son’s needs. And here’s where Tomato Glasses began. Tomato Glasses are unlike any other children’s frame in its unique features and customization.

These glasses are suitable for babies, school-aged children and teenagers, and beyond. Tomato Glasses are designed to be very lightweight and adjustable as every child's face is unique. They have undergone rigorous testing to make sure that they are safe for kids.
