    Help....Looking for Optyl 1017 in a 52 eye

    I have a patient that broke her Optyl 1017 frame. Some people just get really attached to a certain style and I told her I would try to search one out for her. If I remember I think an Optyl 1328 is the same shape but a different temple or endpiece. The size is a 52 eye and the color is a brown I think called cider. I am sure any color would be fine. Please, any help would be great.

    1017

    Oh wow. I sold my last 1017 in 1978. I still have a box of tart arnels. We can super heat them in the salt pan and they should stretch to fit juuuuuust fine
    Money carefully refunded

    Terri Brogan had a copy of the 1017 but I haven't seen one of them since high school

    One of my favorite old frames. Would fit anyone. Good luck!

    If I had a nickel for every 1017 I sold, I would be writing this from my villa overlooking the French Riviera!

    That's why my employees dont make a penny over $.04 per frame, at $.05 cents they'll all retire to hawaii and I'll have to do all the work.



    .... but I will be $.04 richer, Harry you may be onto something!

    What a bunch of old farts we have here. Terri Brogan? Arnel? What a history lesson. Which way to the catacombs?

    If you can't find one, maybe you could 'update' her to a Deeda.

    Or downgrade her to a Leading Lady, or a Honey, and I'm betting not many here remember the Honey! Hint, It was an old style when the Leading Lady was introduced.

    I have one, it's probably 30 years old. I think it's the cider color, it's brown with silver temples. It's a 52 eye size and in great shape.

    However, I'm a little attached to it for sentimental reasons. Is this woman willing to make it worth my wild to give it up? :)

    It just needed one longer size temple to be really great. The 125s and 130s sometimes were too short. But that would fit anybody's nose.

    Short temples....how nostalgic. I get tired of tying them in a knot behind their head.
